    I managed to pick up one of the blue and green Antex Twintwists, and noticed the quality on these aren't as good as Hasbro/Takara TFs. This has me a little worried, was there ever any confirmation that the Antex stuff is "official", or are they basically knock offs?

    They are official Transformers figures. Brazil & Argentina are to Antex as Italy & Netherlands are to GiGi.

    They're official, but use cheaper plastic. QC wasn't a big deal for Antex.

    1) The company was named GiG, not "GiGi".

    2) The Netherlands got toys from Hasbro.
