    I just found these on Ebay, and they are so cheap I smell a fake here...

    Autolaunchers on Ebay

    The boxes shown are not like the ones I know they had originally... but there is just so little info about these, I cannot be sure.

    Anyone who has experience can help me out here?

    Also, same guy sells the BW2 Magnaboss for an insanely low price.

    It surely doesn't help that he has some toys that are obviously fake (like the four BW Neo Dinos called 'Dino Robots' or the 'Shining Lio Convoy') so it's hard to tell for a marginal BW collector like me to tell the real thing apart from the fake. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    The 4-dino set is legit, as are the Autolaunchers and Magnaboss... I believe they're Korean... Flash Lio Convoy is an exclusive from Japan (movie edition or something like that?)

    I've bought tons of stuff from that particular seller, it's always been top-notch. The Korean stuff is just as good as the normal stuff, he's very honest about what he has for sale.

    Thanks! So these are the same toys, just in different packaging? Weird... But at least much cheaper. I wish BW Ravage or the BW2 Seacons would get this Korean treatment too... :)

    Unfortunately, BW took place in Korea the same time it took place in Japan (give or take)... So the odds of that are slim...

    And the mold for Ravage was lost...
