    Ha. I remember seeing that on Ebay. Talk about a bad paint job. I wouldn't buy it period. The person who paid over $100 must be insane.

    It looks good in some spots and bad in others, almost as if it were worked on by 2 totally different people. What bothers me most is how the arms were painted.

    This is going way back, but when Marvel Legends were all the rage, anyone remember the "custom Globulus GIJoe figure" on Ebay?

    It was a Cable ML figure stuffed waist deep into an old Madball. Not even painted. Just "have madball - insert Cable". It was pretty funny.

    I would not even pay 5 cents for that thing. That toy is 100% ruined.

    Well at least you can take comfort in the fact the toy was ruined in a pet free smoke free home.

    Although i'm wondering why someone would pay $100 for this with TRU Thundercracker doing the rounds?

    That belongs to a member here, he even started a thread and posted links to the auction.

    I bid $1 on it, I figured it would be good for parts at least. $100 is insane and makes zero sense. The shins look finger painted, and those wing lines...
