    Seems a bit too cheap if you ask me, but I can't say for certain if it's a KO or not.

    Too much of a risk. I mean, you could get lucky, but the chances are next to none. Just too easy to get ripped off.

    I wouldnt trust the seller. Also, alot can happen in 15 hours. An auction is only cheap if it ended cheap. If it was a BIN of 150, then it would be cheap. And no, while he might not even have the toy he's selling, the brave max was never KO'd.

    be realistic guys, the real bidding doesn't even start until the last 60 seconds of the auction. Guy has 0 feedback, but seems to be legit, just ignorant at posting real good pictures for his auctions. This won't end at what it is now by far.

    well we all had to start at zero feedback at some point. plus as long as you use paypal then you got some protection...usually zero or very low feedback sales tend to run below market price because people aren't willing to take the risk

    I don't get it, why this is a good deal? The final bidding price could be miles above the current one.

    Ebay:

    I had one, he was KO'd. He was a korean remake with the autobot stickers placed upside down. The lower/end parts of the white ramps were not a great quality plastic either. And the writing on teh box was different. I bought him off ebay about 3 years ago, for $199 and shipping. Though he was a great figure to just have.

    The Korean version isn't a KO, and the upside-down logo is an identifier of that version. Sonokong produces many Takara toys for the Korean market, but they're not KOs and the "quality differences" people speak about are negligible at best.

    Congrats, you've got a real one!

    1. Brave Max was never KO'd

    2. This is a great deal cos these guys go for way over $200.00

    As far as the feedback goes, everyone has to start somewhere. If you pay with paypal you will be protected. In fact paypal will hold this guys money until you leave good feedback in this case. That is how paypal protects themselves.

    well odds were the price was going to go up and its likely if the price had stayed below $200 the auction might have been shut down and it not sold

    Outside of BIN, it's very hard to get a good deal from regular auctions. Especially for those got posted on the forum.

    Oh,and another way to get a good deal is to ask newbie sellers to end the auction earlier with a low ball BIN or "sell to the highest bidder". I absolutely hate those especially when I already placed bids in the auction.
