I would inform the bidders but the seller made it a "User ID kept private" aution.
@Tony: I think he dont know that it is actually a conversion.
The manual shows differences to the original, also the insert shows differences:
Look at the gun: The upper right flash is a bit shorter than the next one to the left.
Look at the bricks on the very left: A barely visible row of bricks appears here.
Look here at the guns fire: The above mentioned upper right fire flash is longer than the next one to the left.
Also take a look on the bricks on the very left of the back of the insert: In the original artwork is a bit of another few bricks visible, here they are missing.
There is another conversion around but this is most of the time sold as a conversion(but I saw it go with a manual as an original on ebay too).
Here on the front side of the insert there are no differences to the original, the fire flash is like it meant to be.
Backside of the insert: Here we have the above mentioned missing row of bricks and a wrong picture compared to the original.
Spine: The handgrenade is placed behind the screenshot and the info box, in the original artwork it is placed in front of them.
This is all I can tell, hopefully it helps.

Maybe someone should report this to ebay.

I am certain that he is the same guy that TerryB sold his conversion to. I think he was in Peterborough, UK at the time.
I remember he tried selling this same item on ebay a few months ago. I think TerryB exposed him in this forum. I sent the guy a question via ebay letting him that he had been exposed as selling a conversion, and shortly thereafter, he ended the listing.
Now he is trying to list it again. I guess he is hoping that he will get away with it this time.
matt009au said:damn i would have never picked that, just from the bricks and the muzzle flash. What are the most common games that are conversions? Cheers, I haven't really bought a lot of aes stuff off ebay because i don't know what to look for.
You tend to find that the more rare or expensive games Neo games can have conversions, For example Metal slug 1,2,3 Neo Turf Masters, Ninja Masters. You can also obtain MVS only games on the Aes through conversions such as Neo Bomberman etc.. If in doubt about a neo game on Ebay just ask here before bidding.
