    Very Nice. I like it all except the way the wheels in Alt. mode are hidden some what on the top and the Autobot Symbol is too large.

    I just checked this out in the radicons section.

    Very nice custom, but it's hard for most people to afford such prices right now.

    I'm not trying to step on anyone's toes by all means, but it seems like all that goes on in the ebay forum is topics and discussions on customs and overpriced auctions.

    The seller of this amazing custom is a tfw2005 member and he put hours upon hours on it, so he has every right to want $800.00 for it.

    I always thought the purpose of the ebay forum is for people to post their ebay auctions and a place for people to go with ebay questions.

    Again, I'm not trying to step on anyone's toes, and I'm not calling anyone out. This is just my opinion.

    Agreed. These are very tight times and will last for a few years at the least so these prices are hard to swallow in todays Economic Turmoil.

    Ebay:
    Well also i think the OP was talking about the fact that the seller/customizer, pulled the auction before it sold because he was unhappy about the price.
    If this is indeed the case, it is kinda unfair to anyone how bid on it in good faith that the price they were offering would be accepted. If you auction something off and want a certain price for it, that's when you set a reserve, not pull the auction.

    Yeah, and that much I'm in agreement to. More or less, I was chiming in on the discussion of "that's too expensive/no one will buy it in this economy" when several ebay auctions for custom toys have silenced that one (even recently).

    Yeah,I forgot about the Superbowl and extended it a couple of days oh well kinda ironic huh?The second time I don't know what the hell happened it was ended when I opened up my ebay page this evening so I figured Ebay did it and just relisted it.It looks like he might get the $800.00 out of it.Wonder how it compares next to a MP seeker.

    Some of the bidding looks a bit shady to me.

    Really? I had alot of zero and low feedback bidders on mine.New collectors love the repaints.In fact I picked up 2 commisions and if I had not pulled the item due to Superbowl Sunday the guy would not of seen it.So I'm glad I extended mine.I think the bids are legit but I'm being nice.Normally I'm a sceptic but I've seen how many new buyers are after customs so I became a believer on that subject anyways.But some times you never can tell.
