I lot of people would rather listen to the horrible voice of 20th ann Prime (Not Cullen) then have a knockoff in their collection. I believe knockoffs have a place in collecting and I don't mean custom fodder. Take a look at some of my knockoffs. Let's start with what got me into Transformers. I started like a lot of other collectors with a knockoff. I could not afford a real Soundwave and got Cassetteman at a flea market. My first transformer, I pulverized him. At one point he had only 1 hand, the chest was taped on and his head was loose as hell but I loved him. So when I got back into Transformers my holy gail was to get him back. CASSETTEMAN -the true man After that I had to get his minions Ravage, Laserbeak, and Frenzy Fourstar Kickback and Bombshell I also got the newer knockoff cassettes because let's face it clear plastic is cool I soon found out about a fourstar knockoff of Devastator with an awful Jetfire head. I had to have one and lucked out and found the giftset I also scored an almost complete set of individual carded ones RARE Predaking vintage giftset better than the newer knockoff The ever popular dinobots Which leads me into my greatest find. A fourstar Slag, never before documented as far as I know. Also the fourstar white seeker jet Also Fourstar black seeker jet Just look at these two jets and tell me knockoffs suck.... These molds are way better than the takara molds they stole from. I absolutely love them. Omega Supreme... Voltron.... Popcorn maker.... you decide?? Because I can never win a Black Shadow Fourstar Shockwave. Better than Shackwave This one came out around the same time as Shackwave G2 Menasur? Way too many drugs Menasur You want Action Masters you got em. The only way to get Bluestreak Minibots yep got those also, in your favorite colors... Pee on me Lio Convoy anyone?? I know, I know, he's a gobot not a knockoff but so what... Finally dug him out. Neon Color Piranacon Remember, don't knock a knockoff until you've hunted one down as a prized possession..... MegaMus -Proud to say he has knockoffs in his collection.
