eBay Bans Unmarked Megatron Gun Toys

eBay pulls ALL unmarked Megatron toys that transform into a Walter P-38. It is a blanket ban on all reissues, Masterpieces and vintage Megatrons. Violations may result in suspensions of sccounts. Please read further for their reply.

I just did a search for Megatron Masterpiece and I noticed that they were all gone! I then contacted Ebay customer and this is what I got in reply:

"The sale of weapons is highly regulated by the government, and these items can harm the eBay Community. For these reasons, eBay restricts the sale of weapons to a very few types, and these sales can take place only under very specific conditions.

For example, members are permitted to sell airsoft guns, cap guns, paint ball guns, toy guns, and replica, look-alike, or imitation firearms but only if the sellers meet all of the following conditions:

+ The item has a clear, permanent marking (usually a plug inserted in the barrel or a blaze orange marking) that meets federal regulations

+ The item can't be converted to shoot a projectile

+ Any picture of the item in the listing is the actual item for sale, not a stock photo

+ No picture of the item is a close up of only part of the item. For example, a photo that displays only the tip of the gun is not permitted.

+ The item, seller, and buyer are located in the United States

+ The item is shipped within the United States

We realize that some replica firearms are very old and may lack permanently attached markings, but even if this is the case, we still do not allow them to be listed on eBay.

For more information on the eBay Firearms, Weapons, and Knives policy, please visit:

Please note: violation of this or other eBay policies may result in forfeit of eBay fees on canceled listings, limits on account privileges and account suspension."

I then did a search for Megatron reissue, and Megatron G1. NOTHING showed up. I don't know what spurred this, but it may have something to do with the Virginia Tech shootings and the grief Ebay got for selling the killer the bullets. If anyone as any input please feel free to divulge.
