    If this has been talked about please merge delete whatever. I saw this auction and it just does not feel right. If this is someone on the boards I apologize in advance. If this is suppose to be a g1 prototype I don't ever remember seeing a genuine prototype stamped with "not for sale". That seems to be something they just started doing recently. Correct me if I am wrong. It also looks like the paint was sand blasted off. The black plastic parts do not look right also. Once again just my opinion but I would stay clear of this one.

    This was a topic in the luckydraw/rare group. Its a fake and the seller knows it, he also sells fake henkei gold primes and legit items aswell.

    I wish there was some way to tell those people who have bid it up to $200. I hope they are not allergic to gray spray paint!!!

    I agree with you 100%, someone is gonna get screwed by this dick again. I just sent him a nice msg, now to wait and see what he says this time. He claimed his gold henkei proto was legit and then stopped replying when I showed him the proof that it was a fake.

    Reported to eBay. I doubt they'll do anything; they don't seem to usually.

    The lengths people will go to to rip off other fans...

    It's not that it's all that surprising, I suppose; just disappointing.

    I was thinking the same thing. That is like adding insult to injury.... I truly hope whoever wins this finds out before they send payment. I do however believe that what goes around comes around. This seller will get his....

    Reported again, maybe ebay will get the picture. Odds are it's an alt/new ID for the same scumbag anyway.
