Makes me so angry ...... people have bid on this and some poor sucker is actually going to think they have a genuine artifact....

Obviously he hasnt done his research in any way shape or form if he believes 7 exist .... he must also have no clue what the real thing looks like as this isnt even a good custom job lol

Completely agree test.

I mean its not even close to the original, but like you said I feel bad for whoever ends up winning this. It will be a huge disappointment.

Edit:
So I was going to report this, but do you think I should send him a message first to see what he has to say?

I was also tempted to send him a polite message ..... but something tells me he's going to be one of these people who argue till they are blue in the face without listening to facts ...... And with regards to reporting it .. I must say I have been thinking about it .... its wrong that anyone should get ripped off like this ... especially if the price goes up much further

This other Custom on eBay is the one that HombreX from this forum made. The description from the seller in the UK is kind of cheeky and try's to make the reader think it's almost the actual one. Cleverly though has out 'custom' in title

Ya he put up quite a description and does a decent job of making it seem legit. I guess you cant really report it as he does technically tell everyone that it is a custom he made, but still shady if you ask me.

I always laugh at sellers who post up a figure with the description containing 'Super Rare'.
Very few things are rare. Also how does he truly think people with come into a bid at 500gbp.

Jeeez .... 500 for a custom ???
That's just beyond stupid lol
... Don't get me wrong it is a fantastic looking piece ... It looks absolutely identical to the real thing , but no matter how good it is , it's still a bloody custom...

Speaking of ridiculousness did you guys see the tongue a saurus listed for nearly 500 quid ?? Lol .... It is with box etc but still I can't see it being worth that much

Ya, as much as I would like some of items prices just seem ridiculous on some stuff. For some of you that have been collection a long time (5yrs or more) do prices seem higher or lower than they used to be?

Ive been collecting vintage thundercats and transformers for dead on 5 years just about adssse ..... and prices are definately higher than ever right now ...... however it also seems that sales are lower (going by ebays completed listings) Seems that most sellers are wanting far more than people are willing to pay ..... (that tongue a saurus is infact 600 quid on second glances) .... The no reserve auctions always seem to fetch the best prices ...... there is one exception though and that seems to be driller and bengali (i recently saw a loose driller sell instantly for 140 pounds and he wasnt even in great condition...... whereas i picked up my mint one a while ago for 115 pounds) ...... their prices are going higher and people are paying it .... in contrast it seems lynxo and pumyra are going down a bit .... the market really is all over the place at the moment but prices are constantly on the rise in general .... I wish i'd started collecting 10 or 15 years ago thats for sure lol ..... might have even stood a chance in affording the cats lair then .....

Thanks for the insight test! It definitely is difficult to pick up some of the items that I have been after. It seems like items are constantly soaring past my budget. I have been trying to find other places to purchase from such as resale shops, garage sales etc. but have come up pretty empty. Are there any tips on alternative sources to look?

I also should have started collecting long ago. Not only so I could maybe get my hands on some of my want list, but because it is so fun and addicting!
