    Well we all know about the Swoop KOs by now. :p 

    However, I just found Sludge & Slag KOs on eBay.

    Check them out here: Sludge & Slag

    If this is old news just delete this. If not then shop on! :D

    They're KOs, not reissues. Meaning they are not official.

    Exactly. The thread title could be misleading to some.

    I would call these Reproductions, as the Quality of these and the others before them is Higher than any KO I have ever seen

    Why not just call them high quality knockoffs? That way people aren't confused that they're licensed and they understand that they're high quality as well.

    I would've thought something along the lines of Unlicensed reproduction would be best - whilst some have been good quality, some have been very poor indeed.

    The proper term for those are "bootlegs"

    KOs are similar, but not identical to the licenced product. A bootleg is a replica, right down to the packaging.

    Changed, sorry for confusion. I was tired when I posted that lol. :p 

    Has anyone invested in these yet? I really want to check these out, but I'm concerned with the quality. If you have invested could you please share your opinions & pics if you have?

    Thank you.

    I'm very exited about these new dinobots. Even though I already got them all MIB. I'll definitly buy them, only price gotta drop about 50% for me. And since Grimlock the Bommander and Snarl boxes with bubbles are already spotted as well, I think these will come out too in the near future. I hope Wheeljack will come soon, that one I REALLY want!! Keep bootlegging guys!!!
