    I'll verify this when I get home. I have .jpg's of the original ... and I believe this might be an original figure in a reproduction box.

    The box at least is definitely a counterfeit. It uses says "Ages." instead of "Ages:". What a douchebag.

    Damn that's lame (and very lazy on the seller's part)! Even worse, he is keeping the buyer's identity private so no one can warn them. (Well, that is assuming that someone will buy it; hopefully it will go unsold.)

    Nice detective work.

    People can do their part to get the auction taken down by reporting the auction. There's a link on the bottom of the page. Just fill out the form with "Trademark infringement" / "Other repica/counterfits".

    The auction is gone, but lemme guess: Doufaceb?

    He's been doing this crap where he posts his KO's without proper identification and takes offers around the price of what he used to sell them for. It's a pretty rotten scam, IMO. It'll be even worse when an unsuspecting buyer thinks they're actually getting an original MISB Swoop for a "low" offer a little short of the asking price.

    Check out the other figures he's doing this with: http://toys.search.ebay.com/_Transformers-Robots_W0QQcatrefZC12QQsacatZ83732QQsassZdoufaceb

    Edit: Anyone know the story on that MISB Scourge he has? I've not heard of a KO coming out, but judging from his other auctions, it could very well be one.

    This guy should definitely update his username to douchefaceb, it would be more appropriate.

    Yeah, initially I thought he was sellings originals until that Snarl showed up. I thought that maybe, judging by what he was selling (originals of toys that had been faked, and Scourge, who was going to be an upcoming fake), that he had some connection to the factory making these and he was in charge of giving them high quality images or something and got a discount in return. But seeing him put up a counterfeit Snarl and claim it was original casts some doubt on that theory.
