    Check this out. Not to mention his 75% feedback rating and 2 point feedback score, but he was selling a "sealed" optimus prime from a picture he took of the screen from his camera of another auction. Some poor sap bought it for $241.42. This first link is from the fake auctionhttp://cgi.ebay.com/Rare-Sealed-in-package-Optimus-Prime-Transformers-G1_W0QQitemZ280227847996QQihZ018QQcategoryZ4696QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItemThis link is from the real auction http://cgi.ebay.com/X-Rare-Factory-Sealed-Optimus-Prime-Transformers-G1_W0QQitemZ290230107625QQihZ019QQcategoryZ4696QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    Wow, that's shady. With eBay's new Draconian punishment for policy violators & negatives, this seller won't last long.

    I noticed the original seller watermarked his pics. He prolly saw the fake auction of his stuff and and put the watermarks on his pics after the fact.

    Ah.. those black-boxed Chinese-esque toy pics on the front with the normal US box cut looked familiar! Good catch.
