Here's something interesting I found that's pretty old, like Spyro's Kingdom Old. It's an early version of the PvP battle, with footage of Bomb Troll.

Super suspicious stuff here. He has two of each one from the first batch listed as buy it now and is reusing the same images? I mean there is no way you could get two of the same Boom Bloom with that writing on her face...

Anyway the new ones are here as well but he'd probably do the same exact thing as the prior batch. Anyone bidding them up high is only going to be hurting themselves as he'll relist them at $10 over the winning bid.

Still says 0 results but when I change the 'Shipping to' option to an adress not in Canada it's fine...

He probably bidded on his own items with a different account and he is now selling them at a fixed price a bit above the highest bids.

I checked for you, no Canada buyers allowed. Not sure why he would ban Canada though as it's not one of the trouble countries. Probably had a really jerk bidder from there that wouldn't stop harassing him and it was the only way to stop him. I had to do that with a Russian buyer myself and now no Russian buyers can buy my stuff.

Personally I would like several of these figures but hunks of oddly colored plastic generally isn't worth $100+ or so to me. I feel that affordable 3D home printing is around the corner and we'll be making stuff like this in vast arrays of funky colors for a fraction of the price.

These are starting to look incredibly suspicious now.

I've also looked at the seller's feedback. Apparently, they listed Funko Pop figure "prototypes" that were apparently just paint-stripped production ones.

Also.. look at the dirt on some of them. Knight Light looks covered in it, pretty disgusting to me.

Knight Light is definately not real. We saw his prototype on the developer videos all the way back in TT - iirc he's just grey - and even then there's no way they'd have his base color as such a dirty shiny bronze when he doesn't have any use for it. Feels like they just dropped these in thinner and painted them in pastel colors so it looks unfinished.

I don't think the prototypes this guy is selling are the same that developpers have in their office. What he has are just "tests" in factories before going ahead with the final product. "Prototype" isn't the right term for them actually.

Judging entirely from how these auctions play out, it seems that the seller is a shill bidder, aka; bidding with another account.
I'm about 50% livid that I couldn't afford Cortex.

I thought that too about the seller last week. He has hidden identities set up for all these listings which makes it super suspicious. Overall I felt that he's doing auctions on them only to judge how much they are worth to collectors and then he set it just a little higher to gouge. What a jerk move!

Anyway Cortex ended at only $61 dollars. The others about 40% less than last week's bids. That tells me that bidders felt he was shilling last week and they were not going to fall for it again this week. I highly doubt we'll see him relisted at $71 though. I have a feeling he'll probably relist a pair at the Crash price of $149.99. I'll be highly surprised if he'll list any new characters at auction. He now has a pretty good idea of what to list them at without having to pull this scheme again.

I have received 17 of the crystals won on ebay, I will post pics as soon as I am able.
Most of them are standard retail models however most have no model number on the bottom, some have FEP rather than a W and a number and a couple of them have numbers differing from the variations I have seen on the retail ones.
There are three interesting ones, the unreleased fire wings crystal, the unannounced and non regular magic spike case. Also the life acorn has different paint on the jewel bit.

Interestingly one of the crystals has a chip inside it, it also has a different number printed on the bottom, I've not had a chance to try it out in game yet.

#938 Posted: 20:21:44 20/05/2017
I received all of mine a few days ago.

The Earth Runes is a legitimate prototype. It has a small piece of printed paper marking it as a "Sign Sample."

To my shock, it ALSO works in game, and even lights up.

I'll get some pictures of it later. Every other one I received doesn't work with the game, but one of them has working lights, as well as that FEP instead of the factoy production number.

The second one is interesting. that's CLEARLY the air/acorn mold- yet the renders of the air/acorn and this proto have different crystal molds inside.

Based on what the link says it could be one of the following:

"- prototype heads from preproduction 3-piece Swap Force characters (the final game used 2-piece characters)."

"- a 3D-printed minifigure of The Masked Mabu, a character from Skylanders Lost Islands. This was a development team exclusive gift, printed directly from the character's in-game model. "

On closer inspection I'd hazard a guess that it's the Masked Mabu.

And Happy Halloween to you too, and everyone else here! smilie
