    Yes. iGear. They scaled down the MP Optimus mold.

    They're going to do KO MP Coneheads, with new wings and hats.

    Other companies did full size MP Optimus KOs, too.

    You'd never be able to mistake any of them for the real deal, though. The low-quality knock-offs are off-coloured, and in the typical slapdash, gaudy KO packaging. iGears' versions are downsized, in completely different packaging, and can only be bought through their site.

    People rarely speak ill of kotoys' toy quality. Due to the simple fact that mike from kotoys threatened to stab someone with a pen for posting a negative, but honest, review of KOLD OP.

    Kotoys' ko toys = poor quality
    The people behind kotoys = piss poor quality

    my comments are based on my own personal experiences with the toys and people from kotoys.

    For the price of the KO MP Prime that KOToys has, you can get you one of the Hasbro releases with the money and it's better quality, though the second Hasbro release has QC issues are far is paint is concerned on the legs. Just my :2c:

    Where? Because, in so far as I have seen, Hasbro Primes go for 100+

    Wouldn't surprise me at all if the Takara or Hasbro versions of any MP toys had been knocked off quite convincingly.

    At least convincing enough based on a photo.

    I've seen the DVD Hasbro MP go for less than $100 quite a few times, it's the one with the more orange-y plastic and the display base that has soundbytes that aren't Cullen.

    Ebay:

    Me too...2 years ago. Seriously where? I want one but I can't pay the 150 avg they go for.

    hasbro optimus masterpiece items - Get great deals on Collectibles, Toys Hobbies items on eBay.com!

    Still never see them go anywhere near 65 dollars (the rough for the ko plus shipping). Regardless I'll get one one day but if I can save money and not get a jacked price I'll get it.
