    I have never seen that before. I would think that the machine wars line and universe were too far apart to be mispackaged like that. I also can't think of why someone would intentionaly do that. Other than the obvious, to try and trick some sucker into paying too much for a fake rare piece.

    That's definitely just a Machine Wars Starscream in King Atlas's packaging. Most likely trying to sucker someone into thinking it's a rare item, and thus paying more for it.

    His BIN on Movie Optimus (with ZOMG Legends!) is equally hilarious.

    Speaking of King Atlas...why is he going for so much on the secondary market? I sold mine last month here on the boards for a measly $10...and now I'm kinda regretting it! (esp. after acquiring a G1 Skyquake)

    The only reason I discovered this one is because during my search for King Atlas (thanks to autobotx23 for the lead on getting one for 10 bucks, as well as a Universe Razorclaw for 10 bucks), I had King Atlas set as a saved search on ebay, but never turned it off... and then this guy crops up.

    He's a simple figure, but the paint apps and decos are nifty... He'll be on my AEC shelves when they get put back...
