Saw these "phototypes" (sic) on eBay from Hong Kong... and they smell kinda funny to me. These look nothing like the TS protos I've seen... more like someone spray painted the regular ones white.

The only thing that gives me pause is the clear(?) landing gear on the Viper. Plus the fact that the TS line was tooled in HK by HFE.

They're asking $140+ for each of 'em... I'd never pay that much, even if they were legit. Someone else would, though. What did PT Barnum say?

What do youze guys think?

You are correct to call BS on these, the white on the canopy of the Viper where the landing leg is clear suggests these are test shots that have been painted over, or factory line thefts that got snatched before going through paint. They have enough seam gapping and soft sculpting that they are definitely from the production tooling, not prototypes.
