I reported this to Seiberton last month. I posted it here in the toy section on Sept 30th, and we all talked about it here:

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=44927&p=799256

It was submitted to the news department, and no one seemed to care.

Nice little bit of history....

For those who saw and reported this last month: wasn't Seibertron down due to Hurricane Ike shortly after this time last month? Might be why some failed to see this without checking out other TF websites.. which I keep forgetting there are.. hehe..

That is cool. The BIN price is not.

Top Spin would have also been in the Pretender line then by default.

Obviously, the guy could find no private buyer.

A nice piece, but wtf, who wants this??

You are right, that it was submitted a month ago. The news team looked into it, and we don't think it is actually a legit art piece because it looks like a combination of two pieces of existing artwork - G1 Twintwist and one of the existing Pretender shells, which I don't know the name of - (possibly Cloudraker?)

The Seller has made a few claims though there is nothing to substantiate it at this time.

I'm not sure which shell you mean, he's the colors of Waverider, but it's not his art. Additionally this is the ebay seller who has sold literally hundreds of prototypes and art prints from Hasbro, some of which have been reported on this site before. Seems worth mentioning - and I guess it was, as it got reported - the second time someone mentioned it.
