    Yeah, its cool that it comes with a custom box and all but he seriously should indicate its a WST Starscream. And the price doesn't really indicate that it's a WST either. I've seen reissues sell for that much. I know reissues don't look like that but anyone not knowing or not paying close attention may not catch that.

    WOW that's sad. WST Starscream isn't worth but about $5, so he wants 15 for the box. I really don't like how he doesn't say one single word about it being a WST... someone is gonna be pissed when they recieve that thing in the mail!

    On eBay UK a loose swoop without accessories would easily fetch that much money.

    All the best

    The jerk off kindly ignored my sugestion of changing some information so as to not horribly misrepresent the item. Big shock there.

    What a god damned douche bag. I think I hate him.

    I decided to go ahead and let e-bay know he was misrepresenting these items even after I "made him aware of the error".

    I saw some one passing off something similar on ebay uk, they were going for about £2.19 (I think) although I dont remember if it was for the box or for the WST fig and custom box.


    also on a tangent, there is some one selling WST figures of ones that were never released as WST i.e Menasaur and Superion. However these are the knock-off "Mini" combiners.

    Too late to look. Ebay took down the auctions. Nice of them to protect unsuspecting buyers.

    F yeah, I did. When I say stuff like that, I am not joking. I mean business.

    If he had listened to me and changed the description to reflect the fact that these were WSTFs in custom boxes and not G1, I would have been cool with that. The fact of the matter is, he was attempting to scam people via this misrepresentation. I was not going to stand idly by and let him.

    I bought the mini constructicon set myself. If they turn out nice, I'll probably get the stunticons and aerialbots as well. I'm such a sucker for all things smallest. And they seem to be the perfect size to the official WST stuff.
