    I've never been keen on it, I think a different color for the legs might make me like it more, not sure what though. It's still kind of neat though overall. Good pictures

    Just noticed the 'not for sale' on the ebay auction. If you compare it to the OP on botcon.com the ebay one has less wear on it also.

    It might be questionable how much of the silver/gold face carried over into the mass production but you can see the silver sparks on botcon.com so my guess is that it's fairly accurate.

    So glad I don't like this set. It saves me some serious money, and I don't see it as being part of the classics line in the least. So my completist side doesn't care either.

    I hate how this seller keeps adding multiple photos into a single, giant JPG file.

    Great photos. Not enough for a buy for me. If this figure looks that good, just wait for the Comic-Con Classic Nemesis Prime.

    Think that's bad, look how much he's trying sell those 5 Primes for...$265 each. That's more than the entire boxset. This guy's a major crackhead or something.

    Wow... My 30$ winning bid was just beat by a 265$ bid... ridiculous. looks like someone is scamming the auction.

    It was at 1200$ earlier today, but that bid was removed.

    I don't think the seller is doing it, well he hasn't done it with his previous auctions.

    Hmmm. This figure is starting to grow on me the more I see of it. Now, here's hoping every other figure in the set does the same...

    No, it's some self-appointed "fairness police" jerk-off. This tool feels he/she should be allowed to decide what is a fair price for an item, so they go around ruining other people's auctions. He's got a bid for all 5 at $285 each. Obviously fake bids. The whole purpose is to ruin it for the seller and for everyone else. Genuine buyers will not/can not bid because of the fake high bids, and in the end the seller can not sell the item because of the fake bidding. These are the same fools that would go around ruining Playstation 3 auctions by bidding them up to $10,000. Because they did not get one, no one else should be able to get one either, or profit from it if they did. I was mad because I didn't get one either, but I sure didn't go around sabotaging auctions of those that did.

    It's a neat idea, but I'm still not completely digging it. Honestly the thing I like best about this is the crack in the windshield...mmmm....classy.
