My phone's operating system is so old, I can only see the first picture.
But, am I correct in concluding that the poor thing looks terrible?

What a hack job. It was either done by a little kid or someone as a joke. It's so ugly I wouldn't even try to give it away. It belongs in the dump.

Well at least it’s spray paint and not brushed on….

They couldn’t have been too serious about what they were doing because they didn’t bother to protect the wheels from the paint overspray. I never understood why people do this. I’d rather have a vacuum that shows its “battle scars”, unless it’s been outright abused.
Such a waste…..

By calling it "Limited Gold Edition", could they be fishing for someone gullible enough to think this came from the factory this way?
There was even a thread here recently about the rare gold Kirbys. Maybe this seller saw that, and a lightbulb went off in their head! A dim lightbulb, but...

“Dim lightbulb”….

From the looks of it, I’m surprised that they didn’t paint the lightbulb lens!
