I occationally look on e-bay to see if any good proton packs are up for sale.

Well, there is one guy sellling a few right now, but I'm not talking about that right now.

What I am talking about it the guy who is selling one that, from the pictures is an IDENTICAL replica WITH ights and sound. And he's starting it at $1000 with a buy price of $2000. Either he's real stupid or he's trying to rip someone off because the pictures look a little suspicious. You'll know what I mean when you look for yourselves.

tell me what you think:

Has the old idea of "if it's too good to be true it probably is" come back to haunt us?

I'd say it's probably real. I don't think there are any pictures like that of the originals, if that's what your assuming.

I've seen these packs around lately, they're pretty damn good. I'm not so sure on the price but for what its worth the pack only needs a little work to get it back in good condition. The rust effects aren't half bad and I like the neutrona wand. I still wouldn't pay that much for a pack anyway tongue

I'm sorry, I don't know what was running through my head when i first saw it. For some reason $100 registered in my head instead of $1000. thats why I was saying he's stupid because my retardedness saw $100. But for a back of that quality, with lights and sound, $1000 is not a bad starting price.
