    lol, I think that auction has popped a couple of times already!

    However thanks for heads up Andrew, I'm not into production/prototype pieces myself, but hopefully it will stop anyone think of bidding on it unaware it isn't legit.

    yeah thats one of the ones I was talking about in my bootleg writeup There is also a mummra that has playful stamp on the bottom (see bootlegs). I didnt have a pic yet so thats good now I have one, but then again I was just going to buy it from andrews site over the next week or too

    sadly it shouldnt but there are a lot of either unknowledgeable or just plain ignorant sellers out there. I do understand why they would think that it is a proto if they have no thundercats or toy knowledge. It looks like it could be a standard test shot, which are often done in non production colors. Its just best to be informed as a buyer (and check out all of the sections on our site as we are here to help, Well just wanted to toot our own horn there8))

    If you ever find a "prototype" that is only $9.99 odds are it is not a prototype......

    J. Gallo is a very respectable collector and seller, widely known in the toys community. I would not have abny doubts of what he sells and rest assured that what he sells is authentic. He has a vast knowledge on what he sells and definitiely knows his stuff. I have met James personally and I actually intended to purchase the Astral Moat Monster clay sculpt he had a while back.

    Guess I should have mentioned the part about him being respectable and all that stuff. oh well things happen, thanks manny for clearing up my reply

    So, I am guessing that this bootleg isn't even worth 9 bucks plus the shipping from Argentina.

    As for James, he is great on both sides of a deal. I sold him a bunch of MOTU stuff, and it was quite expensive, but he paid immediately. The dude is a great buyer and seller.
