    About a year ago a seller on ebay sold a regular release Metroplex with a prototype antenna (which goes with my Metroplex proto, that I got 6 months later). I was wondering if everyone could check theirs to see if it matchs. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
    Here is a pic to show the difference

    Thanks!

    My antenna's a regular, which isn't a surprise to me.

    i wish you luck on your search to find the proto antenna!

    so what happened, the guy that sold them, mixed them up and gave you the regular antenna instead of the proto one?

    Thanks rapid_fire, thanks for the reply. The situation is the guy sold the regular Metroplex first, with the prototype parts. Then when he sold me the proto, he didn't have the parts and said all the Metroplex parts he had he gave with the previous auciton. So I happened to have the pics saved, but by the time I knew about the parts, the auction was over 6 months old, so I can't search ebay. The seller has no idea who has it, and said that he doesn't keep records to he can't look it up

    That sucks man. Have you tried posting at all the other TF sites too? Good luck :)  I don't have a G1 Metroplex at all (well at least until I get the Encore one).

    I originally posted it on a prototype message board, but no one had one there.

    I know it sucks, but this seems like a needle in a hay stack... the problem is you don't know if the winner of the auction is on this board.
