    Just had my listing pulled by Ebay as "a 1984 G1 Megatron that turns into a gun is forbidden" by the the Elords..

    so where/how would a guy go about offloading one of these?

    I have got exactly the same problem!!! Had one in my sales thread forever as I can't do anything with it on eBay. Tried once and it got cut down within the first 24 hours :(  Also got a warning for my troubles saying if I did it again my account would be suspended!

    if its not in a sealed box, you have to get one of those silly orange plugs and put it in the barrel.
    its completely ridiculous, ebay is a collection of morons, but unfortunately they reach the widest targhet audience.

    Meh - the lack of orange plug was one of his selling points!

    Just get something orange to stick over it than can be removed. Maybe only bot mode pics.

    they named it -

    "You listed a Megatron. Please note Megatron Transformers toy that transforms into a Gun (known as Generation 1 (G1) from 1984) are not allowed on the site. Kindly do not relist it."

    so I'm not chancing plugs or bot mode pics.

    Mine is the Takara Anniversary Re-issue - not even from 1984 but like the man says, if I relist and they see it, I'm likely to get my account shut down

    Ebay uber alles?

    It's not worth the risk IMO. I highly doubt anything orange would sidestep the issue in the minds of the eBay overlords. So now I think we're both stuck here buddy, either keep him hanging around gathering dust or sell him for a 20!
