    Check out this auction:

    G1 transformers Shockwave MINT BOXED AND COMPLETE on eBay (end time 21-Nov-10 22:37:45 GMT)

    The seller states that it is a "genuine" item, but it ain't.

    I've already reported this auction once a few days ago and now the guy has re-listed it. You can tell by the sticker sheet in the second picture that it is a KO as it is the one with lots of Decepticon symbols on it that came with the KO (did the original even come with a sticker sheet?).

    Also, the colours used on the box art, like for the yellow 'sun burst' are wrong (the pruple is also far too vivid), and the fact that this guy seemingly has a cash fresh G1 Shockwave after 25 years is a bit suspicious...

    I have reported him but if y'all could show some TF fandom solidarity and do likewise, we'll eventually get him to admit the fact that it's the KO/reissue (which he must surely know and is just flat out lying) or prevent him from selling it at all.

    Reported.

    I agree that it's a knockoff. Another way to tell is where the battle scene box art on the back gets clipped on the left side:

    The knockoff's box art has space between Optimus Prime's head and the left edge, whereas on the original, Optimus's head comes right up to the edge.

    this seller is a pain in the arse, they also buy under the ID juantow and have sold under the ID transformerman ( might have that a little wrong )

    they should be binned soon for having multiple accounts and now flat out trying to con collectors, oh and they like a bit of shill bidding action too :)

    I saw this too and thought, that price is too good to be true. It has been removed. Good job guys.
