    I was going to report it but that page is busted on my end.

    I F'n hate when people sell a KO as the real deal.

    And this is my main reason why I don't support or purchase anything from those HQ Reissue maker! If they made it with a different box, design, or add a big KO logo on the box, I would've been okay. The point is those things can fool and mislead consumers and even retailers thinking it's the real deal.

    Sorry, I can't tell if you're being flip or serious. It appears to be a KO, it certainly is a incorrectly titled listing because there are no reissue Dinobots whatsoever. Why wouldn't this be reported?

    Its the famous "reissue" name that keeps me laughing on these Dinobots. I agree only a d-bag would sell these as reissues or authentic G1 figures.

    eBay never cancels auctions unless it's serious. As long as they see sales which means they get to collect fees, they have no reason to take it down.

    An auction like this probably sneaks past because the seller calls it a reissue, and the folks at eBay are not knowledgeable like we are, so they assume that it must be OK to list it as such.

    Current bid is $28 so hopefully that's an indication buyers know it's a KO.

    Weird, he also says
    I'm not aware of any changes to the KO Sludge to make it cartoon accurate. Maybe he got it confused with the KO Red faced Slag or KO Blue Swoop?

    Judging by how the auction is titled he's just writing down anything that pops into his head that would make it seem more enticing to prospective buyers.

    Grimlock is a Dinobot Bommander though. lol Also I think the winning bidder for the Grimlock might be screwing with him, account created less than 30 days ago with no feedback.

    :lol  I wonder if they actually based that on a packaging that had a spelling error, or they messed up.

    i hate when sellers "carpet bomb" the listing with every possible description.
    For example:

    [​IMG]
    "G1 Transformers Gobot Gundam Macross GI Joe Thundercats DBZ...{9 other toy lines}...Figure"

    in other words, you don't know what it is and are trying to get this to show up in every possible search.

    I'd like an affordable set of KO dinobots, but only if they are listed as such.
