    good job vnutz. block this guy from coming anywhere close to your auctions. he also may get a fake ebay ID and come at you that way. be prepared.

    Good work man.
    Also, he is the same c*nt we've been targetting here; you might want to add your experiences with him in there.
    Nice to see he has 2 negs over all this now; here's hoping for a lot more of them.
    So, what did he say to you? He had a massive go at me about doing the same thing you did.

    Same shit, I already told you. Counterfeit = exact KO.

    Thick gray border above the trailer indicates a KO/bootleg/counterfeit. It is one of several differences that are a clear giveaway with these.

    The only Optimus variant that even comes close to that sort of border is the Euro Optimus, and even that one is like half the size of the KO.

    On the other hand, there WAS an early-90's Chinese Optimus officially made by Hasbro, which had a small Chinese name sticker in the corner (though, people have taken the sticker off in the past and sold them as US versions). It is easy to spot, because the cut of the window is higher than the gray area and the 3 little pictures of the toy on the front of the box have a black border instead of a white border.

    And I've already told you why that's not true. Troll someone else.

    This has been going on for days now guys. Keep hitting the seller and let him/her cry that we're harassing and threatening. My emails to him/her merely asked why they were charging different prices for the same item and the response was that my name (as well as many others) would be turned in to ebay for breaking their policies.

    When I retorted that they are welcome to turn my name in and if ebay asks me about it I would state the truth - the seller is trying to pass off KO toys as the real thing. I never heard back.

    The fact is, we're putting up a good fight but there's nothing that's going to change this seller's mind. They are selling a known fake and it isn't changing a thing. Just continue to contact buyers and let them know - we can only hope for the best. Ebay has been told but doesn't seem to care.
