    The ones that are in that range are probably real.

    With Computron, the only ones I've seen as knock-offs are Lightspeed and Afterburner in a "Menasor" pack (with KO Motormaster and 2 other Stunticons). Now someone should correct me if I'm wrong but as far as I know none of the other Technobots were ever KO'd.

    i know that nosecones been knocked off before.

    actually, i've seen a few, knock off, complete sets on ebay of computron, it's tough, to figure out what is real and not real any more.

    Other than the few Technobots that have been cheaply bootlegged, I believe there's a Taiwan version from around the 90's. They're actually kinda hard to find and I think still go for good money.

    Other than that, there aren't known bootlegs of Computron. Those eBay ones are all legit.

    all 5 of them were bootlegged many times over. in the late 80s you could get either the above mentioned box set or could get each of them individually bboxed (i have the nosecone bootlegged boxed) the scattershot is very close to the real one except he seems to be universally put together backwards (hands/legs) although he can be taken apart and fixed pretty easily, his red parts are slightly lighter as well.

    I just recently sold a computron to a friend. Scattorshot was G1 but all the limbs were knockoffs. It looked fantastic. The plastic is a lot brighter and hand weapons weren't included with the limbs. I dunno if that helps or not.
