    I learn to hate with a clear conscience. They are getting worse! Who is buying these that makes them worth producing?

    But why? He's been reissued a bunch of times and isn't that expensive. I can only see bootlegging being profitable if you offer something the official source does not. Like Wheeljack and Mirage.

    If he was a clear variant then yeah I could see the point, but a straight up KO is just stupid and pointless.

    He said he wanted to make all the G1 cars. This one is a little silly, where is Sunstreaker?

    They said they might do Marlboro Wheeljack. In which case I am all for the KO.

    I would buy MANY. I've given EHobby all these years to come up with a blue Bluestreak, and nada. To the KO market I go!

    These are great for scamming unaware G1 enthusiasts and/or for people that don't respect G1

    Cool that they did it, but I don't see the point since there are multiple official reissue Prowls and they're quite cheap. Now that they have this mold however, I think they need to crank out the famous blue Bluestreak.

    Blue Bluestreak and black hooded anime Bluestreak would both be epic win.

    Dude, really, you can get an official Prowl for less than you'll pay for these KO transformers. You can get the Takara reissue for $30 or less on eBay. The Toys R Us reissue is fairly common for under $40. There's a mint G1 Prowl on eBay right now with bids at $20 with less than a day to go, and one for the Buy It Now price of $39.

    The KOs are going to run you upwards of $60 or $70. It doesn't make sense to buy one of those when you can get a better quality product for less money.
