Just a general question here, but I saw a guy put up a few energon/armada items that I would've been keen on. Set a couple of them to watch. Then later that night I got a message that they had been removed for violating some Trademe rules and regs. Apart from a lack of information (your basic WYSIWYG auction - happens everywhere on Trademe), I didn't see any reason why it could've been pulled. Trademe never gave an explanation.

Since they were wiped off my watch list, I don't have a user name to suggest unfortunately. Does anyone know why that could have happened?

Maybe someone had it in for him and reported the listings for no justified reason..

Im pretty sure that trademe dont do much followup into counterfeit items and may have just taken the "reporters" word for it and pulled the auction without question. (D) (D)

yeeeeaaaaaaah.....so does anybody know a bank with rubbish security:D


funny thing is those devastator giftset rip boxes are now not only selling with the typical green constructicons, they are doing them in the g2 colours now of both yellow and orange, clearly wrong while they are inside their packaging but loose....now way of telling immediatly. somebody could get awhole heap of these things in, discard the packaging and because devy has all his chrome and correctish colours nobody would be none the wiser on tm.


anybody know the difference in the superion fakes against the real thing? he seems the easiest giftset to obtain but i aint sure of the differences.
