Hasbro enforcing 3rd party seperatism on ebay? – my WST shockwave listing removal

Transformers Ebay listing removal by hasbro because of 3rd Party

Well I'll be

Today I received a surprising email – one of my current ebay listing was removed. Not because it was a non-orange-tipped Megatron, not because it was a cruddy listing, but instead because I used the word “Transformers” in the listing title. This was for a Justitoys 3rd party WST Shockwave that was sealed.

Justitoys Worlds Smallest Shockwave

Here is the culprit right here!

The funniest part is that WST Blaster is still listed!

So here is just further evidence that Hasbro is finally starting to take in the reins on their intellectual property, and it is about time! I guess I’ll just have to list the item was NOT being a Transformer. Pretty funny since just about every 3rd part item is listed as a Transformer.

EDIT: It is also possible that my auction was just flagged by an Ebay passerby that decided to be a dick. Who knows?!
