    I recently picked this up off of ebay and after talking with the seller he has told me he in no way did any custom work to this and that he got it from a seller in japan that said it was a convention exclusive, the price wasn't bad so not really worried about that but has anyone seen or heard anything about such a figure. Here's some pics I do have of it....

    I will have the actually figure in hand on Wednesday so I will be able to get a closer look at it but if it is a custom it's a pretty nice one in my own opinion

    Looks like a poorly dyed SoC Convoy. I think someone was lied to.

    could be, haven't left feedback for him yet, but like I said, I didn't pay much so I'm just curious is all.

    Guess the seller learned you can't dye clear plastic. lol That's a custom attempt for sure.

    Def looks like a custom. If those are the seller's pics then you can clearly see Henkei Clear Rodimus in the background which was his package mate. All signs points to custom.

    If it was done better, maybe.

    Poor attempt at dying a clear plastic figure. It seriously look like they tried to do it by just dumping the entire figure into a pot of boiling water and dye for 10 minutes.

    $20 is still too much for a botched custom attempt. Especially when the base mold is rather passable in its own right.

    If he is just going from what he was told (which could be a lie, and he made up the entire story) then why should I hold it against him. But yeah it doesn't make me happy that I am 99.99999% sure I got lied to in the end but other then leaving negative feedback what can I really do. If I like the figure, it was cheap and I keep it....if I don't like it, I file a complaint, get my money back and he will get it back....either way is fine with me.

    It's a bad custom attempt for sure. You can tell by the brownness. Lol. And only $20? That's a lot to me. But if you're happy with it just keep it. Just let him know that you know it's a custom.

    Why would you wanna customize the SoC version, anyway? Wouldn't the other releases of this mold be more expendable?

    I won't know if I'm happy with it until it's in hand and yeah you would think the other version would be better, maybe they were trying to make a clear version of Nemesis Prime

    Dude probably got the set for Rodimus and figured he could experiment on a figure he didn't want at all.
