Is this a troll?
Sad to see
I think they might've bought a repackaged figure accidentally to sell it online. Some of the other figures that they're selling look official.
Or bait, get people to share this link so that more people go to his eBay page, then look to see if he is trying to get away with other cons. Then maybe see a figure you want and buy it.
Sadly it will probably misfire... When we report his listing as fraudulent.
well rippersnaper is a far cry from thundercracker swapping figuers is bad but swapping with a smaller class is even worse . i think i might
Yeah,.that's why I reported it as fraudulent
