    Transformers G1 Road Ceaser in UK on eBay (end time 23-Jul-09 11:56:26 BST)

    ok im selling more stuff on ebay and im also selling my repro mib G1 Victory Road Ceaser. now before anyone asks YES IT IS A REPRO - hence why the price is so low

    now before the war-hammer brigade start to have a pissy fit and start going KO KO KO blah blah blah
    1.I have asked ebay just like i did with the Dai Atlas auction i ran and again its OK so long as you dont go around saying its an original item and trying to sell it off as one
    2.The Dai Atlas auction sold fine and the person was happy
    3.it says in the description its a repro

    so the childish brigade can just calm down and stop having a pissy fit about it ok. if people wil act that childish then i guess FP/WST Dino ect should also be removed from ebay ect as there not offical products as well huh

    either way this is for sale along with loads of other stuff and i sell world wide.just contact me before had if you outa the UK so i can get a more accurate shipping total

    Not going to get into an argument with you again as it's like banging one's head off a wall but this stood out:

    In case you aren't aware, which evidently you're not, the box at least isn't original. This is yours:

    This is the original:

    Compare and contrast.

    I'd also argue that it would be worth putting repro in the title, but I think since it's in box this one is so obviously a KO it shouldn't make a difference.

    Well, now that he's aware it's definitely not an original box, he should change the auction description.

    No reason not to.

    Is there some reason you can't actually bring yourself to say KO?

    (2nd attempt, edit didn't stick first time around):

    GP, I note from previous posts that you complain about the fandom's attitude toward you all-too frequently.

    Has it ever occurred to you that, basically, you bring all this on yourself? Calling other people "sad bastards" etc isn't going to earn you any favours and that's been your modus operandi from the word go.

    Well let me be the first to say, Nice repro or whatever you want to call it. Take it from someone who appreciates knockoffs and repros. I love the fact that the company did not skip on the styrofoam insert. I hope you get a respectable amount for this as it desires it.
    Good luck on your sales and don't worry what others think.

    Now the only thing in the auction that has any mention of any of it NOT being real is this line:

    "I have since found out that the box is also a reproduction as well". The fact that's it's a KO should be in the title, but since that probably can't happen due to ebay regulations, it should be mentioned FIRST THING in the description. Since it isn't - it's very misleading, and seems very blatantly so.

    GP needs to realize that not everyone reads this forum and isn't just going to know it's fake.

    Nope, there's nothing against putting 'KO' or 'Reproduction' in the title as long as there's room and no one has bid. Besides trying to be intentionally deceptive, there isn't any reason not to disclose vital details in the description or title, should they fit.

    Thanks for changing the description to note the box isn't original. I'm actually shocked you have £80 for that, but fair play, if someone's willing to pay...

    So the auction title can't be changed now that someone has bid?

    (BTW, this thread title is another matter) :)

    Bottom line this guy is a Knock Off! (I have him loose)

    And you SHOULD change the description (Or at least e-mail the buyer to let him know that this is not a G1 TF)but you probably won't and that's why you are getting all kinds of shit from people because you are being dishonest about this......:thumbdown

    Repro is a nice way of saying KO. But...you should still say KO...
