    Ebay:
    Skip down to sections "AFA GRADED ITEMS (MISB/MOC)" and "TRANSFORMERS AS AN INVESTMENT" for a good chuckle. Then go look at the rest of this retard's auctions and laugh.

    My favorite statement is...

    "Everyone's looking to get in on the ground floor of the next big thing. Currently there doesn't seem to be a particularly large amount of Transformers collectors, if the amount of people collecting them continues to grow, investing in Transformers could turn out to be a very lucrative investment."

    What a meat head! This guy is a walking contradiction! I guess the song streets of Bakersfield hit the nail right on the head!

    The Prime he is selling looks fake. Gotta love his prices.

    He bought a lot of those items from me...

    * AFA 90 Blue Microchange Blaster, bought from me for $500, trying to sell for $2,985.00

    * AFA 85 Japanese Jazz, bought from me for $275.00, trying to sell for $1,885.00

    * AFA 85 Japanese Prowl, bought from me for $450.00, trying to sell for $1,885.00

    There are still some more items I sold him that he hasn't put up yet too.

    I should have guessed he was planning on reselling these when he bought like 15 Joustra Diaclone Laserbeaks and Gears from me. But wow, those prices are really something. Hahaha.

    His Portugese Optimus is pretty cool (even if the price isn't!). It's a 1989 licensed Chinese Optimus (you can tell by the window cut and black boxes around the toy pictures), but with a Portugese import sticker on the back. I had no idea that the early 1990's licensed Chinese TFs were imported to Portugal. It fits with reports that they showed up in Britain, Korea, and Taiwan, though.

    I like how he says "The $4000 Megatron may be the better investment than the $40 one".

    Riiiiiight. Toys are NOT a good investment. There are far more lucrative things to invest $4000 in, and they would likely pay off quicker and better, too. I guess toys are a good investment if you're him, and idiots buy your stuff.

    His whole "guide" is just there to get noobs to buy his overpriced stuff, thinking they got some kind of great deal. He's a crafty one. I hope nobody falls for it.

    i guess he could make some money, if the dude just knew what kinda prices to sell them at. I dont think this guy has the first clue at what sells for this kinda money and what doesnt. if your going to invest money to sell, at least try and reserch it a bit.

    Whoa

    804 buyer feedback...but only 1 seller feedback.

    Hmm.

    He hasn't mugged anyone yet.

    His "report" is almost non-readable. They'll have to be pretty slow to fall for this guys "deals"

    I love how his one feedback as a seller came from a sale where he sold a KO prime as a an original. This guy plain sucks.

    That's a tricky variant of the KO. No upper gray border.

    Updates...

    1) He's getting around the guide thing by posting a picture of a printout of his guide. I guess the implication is that, if you win the auction, you will get a printout of the guide?

    2) He put a few of his items up for auction. It will be interesting to see how Blue Microman Blaster does considering how he hyped it up.

    3) He's selling KO Mechabot-1 as the original (probably doesn't know the difference)
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280164253784

    4) I was reading his listing for the blue blaster, and he claims that AFA won't grade Microman/Diaclone toys that never came taped. This is untrue. They will grade any toy that never came taped where the contents are totally unused.
