    I just back from preforming with the 2008 Beijing Olympic Orchestra, which I think was a total flop, but anyways, I had some chances to shop around in Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, and near the Yu Gardens, and what I found seriously made me wish I had more luggage space, more money to burn, and a camera that didn't eat up battery so fast...(I missed alot of opportunities to take pictures)

    (I haven't been on in a while so please feel free to correct my improper picture linking)

    Not pictured:
    MP-03
    MP-00
    Encore Soundwave, Megatron, Ratchet, Ultra Magnus
    KO Grimlock, Swoop, Mirage, Sludge, Prime, Nemesis Prime
    Classics Jetfire+Grimlock pack
    the KO mini seekers
    KO combiners and some other bad quality knockoffs

    edit: well, I took 1 picture on my RAZR, and well the camera itself isn't much to boast about, but here is a really muddy picture of the G1 KOs I ran across:

    The jet's an oversized (I think) KO of Robot Masters Jetfire/R-Blade. Not a bad one, if it's the same as the one I've got.

    yup, but keep in mind, that "one store" only had legit TFs, all the other pics were either from street vendors, hole-in-the-wall stores, or from a huge, 4 story Chinese toy store which was weirdly next to a 5 story pearl, jewelry, electronic, clothing, luggage, and souvenir store...

    and as for the prices on the bots I actually decided to buy:

    KO TFTM Prime: 158 Yuan = $23.24
    Encore Ironhide: 140 Yuan (hehe, I bargained) = $20.59
    KO Vector Prime...which is horrible btw: 30 Yuan = $4.41

    those are some nice knockoffs, was the "Cassette man" version of soundwave on sale or just a display?

    the soundwave on display was an encore soundwave (which was being displayed with all the other encores prior to Omega Supreme)

    But what I regret taking a picture of, is the little display the KO seller had up:
    -KO(?) Metroplex
    -KO(?) Sixshot
    -KO Prime
    -MP3 Soundwave
    -Japanese Soundwave with a red Soundblaster Chest
    -Ultra Magnus
    and some obviously easy to forget smaller guys

    Cool. I actually wouldn't mind getting ahold of one of those Vector Prime ko's, if only just for the remolded nose-cone. I've seen it in at least one other type of packaging, and a similar one using the Legends mold.

    I would like the knock off Veccy just because it would make it easier to make that Last Autobot Ive been wanting to make...
