    Yeah. It's a parts swap that somebody's trying to pass off as rare.

    Shit, I gave one of those parts-swapped all black seekers to Draven as thanks/compensation for his help on the member vid. I've still got another one in my own collection. It doesn't take a genius to switch out the parts.

    Indeed, this both sucks and blows.

    Looks pretty sweet, but WAY overpriced.

    Just got contacted AGAIN by this guy. He has "OFFICIAL" information on his ebay auction!!! I wonder who posted that info for him since there is no other official explanation on any trust site.

    I CAN'T BELIEVE THE BULLSHIT!

    Aah! Of course, a chase figure, Hasbro being so well known for black chase figures after all :rolleyes2 

    Even if this were true :crazy:  wouldn't the jet body be TC's, or a conehead (for want of a better term, I don't like conehead)? That's who I'm going to use for mine.

    So I started playing with this MF and put in an offer of $1.02

    so he goes to one of my auctions (an expensive motorcycle) and this is his question:

    "The exhust looks suspect can you stick a camera up it or take it apart completely then can I bid $1.02"

    Anyone got any crafty ideas of what to do next? I'm thinking of just barraging him with questions on the auction, but that's too easy

    But it's still a BS piece right? There is no way this is legitimate. If it were really ALL black I might think differently.
