    Yeah, there are unfortunately a good many fans out there who aren't as informed as those here and aren't on TF sites regularly like us.

    I had a roommate for a while who had a KO Aerialbot set that you could actually get at dollar/discount stores at the time, but he'd bought his off ebay for $25 from some guy in NC and thought he got a great deal. I hated to burst his bubble, especially since it was one of the favorite toys from his childhood and his mom had sold his original set in a yard sale while he was away at college. He wasn't much of a TF fan at all -- just wanted to reclaim a nostalgic favorite, and got duped.

    As long as people like him are unwittingly buying them, and the KO collectors who knowingly buy them, there will always be a market for them.

    Atleast it has an obvious giveaway for G1 collectors to avoid him. The Clear hood with screws clearly showing.

    they probably did this because they are doing BLUE bluestreak. it's an economical way to get the most out of the same mold. same as hasbro does. people probably WON'T buy as many prowls as other molds, but the blue bluestreak will sell out i'm sure.
