    Yahoo!Auction - ?????????????????

    A friend of mine pointed out this Yahoo! Japan auction to me. Never heard of a translucent yellow G1 Chromedome. Anyone hear know anything about the existence of this toy?

    The Shuffler Headmaster also looks a bit different. That alone though should drive the price up way high.

    Based on the painted look of Shuffler, I'd guess two hardcopies... that's gonna end for a FORTUNE.

    wow, cool!

    I noticed on that site that you can't snipe a yahoo auction in the last 5 minutes or the auction will be extended. That's pretty neat.

    Sadly, someone marked up that Shuffler. That Chromedome is NOT included in that auction.

    Ah ha, didn't even think to read the translation of the auction. It also appears that the Shuffler was customized to better fit the television show.

    Still doesn't answer my question of where the Chromedome came from.

    Chromedome is a prototype/hardcopy I believe. TF@TM has a highbrow i think.'

    Kenshodoen (the guy bumping the auction up) is a douchebag and I am pretty sure he is a reseller, I know several ebay members such as anglo and ksgj03 use yahoojp to purchase items and then mark them up crazy amounts.

    The Chromedome is a prototype. I know that TF@TM has a Highbrow, and I know of people who have a Brainstorm and Hardhead. I have never seen any of the decepticons headmasters in clear though.
