    There is this seller, which i think it's a reliable seller (judging from the feedback) he is selling an optimus prime KO, i sent him a message warning he was selling cat for rabbit, had no reply so i warned the highest bidder, the replyed this:

    "Hi there, thanks for the info. Unfortunatly i'll have to pass on this one because with your description i was 100% sure it was an original G1 and not a knock off (reissue). If you ever get an original one please let me know. Thanks a lot and have a nice day."

    Now i don't know if he just likes to be fooled or he's just a shill bidder, but i'll go for the second option, here is the auction link:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/OPTIMUS-PRIME-G...oryZ4696QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    You can hang me by the balls if this is not a KO.

    At least it's not up to the hundreds stage.

    Edit: Shit, they've got to be fucking around. $212.50?

    Edit again. Shit. I didn't see that missing wheel in the picture earlier.

    No one retracted their bid so it looks like you were preaching to deaf ears.

    I went back and saw the end bid of $212.50 and just about cried for stupid people. Seems like some people have more money than sense.

    Just imagine the look they'll make once they actually receive the thing. It's all worth it to me if they're that dumb.

    anyone who sees a prime in the box without his trailer stickers on or the silver stripes on the cab, and bids on it thinking it's an actual G1 prime is a goddamn idiot who deserves to be ripped off.

    don't feel sorry for the auction winner at all.

    I think the people that get taken are just maybe trying to get back some childhood toys so they have no clue about the stickers and what is real or fake?

    That's no excuse. If I was gonna part with $212, I'd do my homework first.

    Personally I don't even think a real G1 Prime is worth that much. But thats jsut me.

    iSold it is a terrible company. I have bought things from them in the past and they are very hard to deal with as well as just being stupid. Anyone can bring in anything to them and they will sell it. They don't care what it is or do any research on it at all. Obviously someone went in with a KO, told them it was real and they sold it as real. Someone should report iSold it for misrepresentation of product.

    As a company they should be responsible for what they sell. Hope they get negative feedback.
