    There's a search button in the top right corner of the thread, right under the page numbers.:)  You could type in "MP Bumblebee" or "Masterpiece Bumblebee" and see if anything turns up.

    Can anyone tell if this is a counterfeit Slag? I got it probably more than 5 years ago at a comic shop, the box it came in looked real, but the toy itself looks too new to be real.

    Does anyone know if there are plans to KO MP Ironhide & Ratchet, I'm going Voodoo Robots for the figures and really only want the Takara mould for the sled and accessories

    Has anyone bought the translucent G1 Slugfest cassette KO yet?

    I've seen a few floating around for sale online, but before I buy one, I'm curious about how good the quality is.

    Wondering if anyone has any of their own pictures, feedback, or reviews.

    Does anyone know if there is a way to tell a repro or ko bubble from the original? Specifically Dinobots.

    Did they KO MP-28 Hot Rod? Seeing a lot of ~50.00 listings on ebay from China all of a sudden...

    Hi guys. I'm new to the boards and collecting. Just wanted to get your opinion on the Masterpiece KO versions. I'm thinking about starting a KO collection. How is the quality of the figures compared to the original Takara Tomy versions? Overall are they almost identical?

    Personally I just want the KO version to be decent enough and remind me of the old G1 toys I used own when I was a kid. I'm particularly interested in Prime and Sideswipe. Also can I trust the shops in China that sell them for $30-40 on Ebay? Any advice would greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    There's a thread in the 3rd party forum discussing them. Some are almost as good as the originals, some are utter crap. Many of the originals can be had for $50 now, but some are expensive.

    I have owned KOs of the sideswipe mold and wheeljack mold and both were sloppily painted, had loose joints, and the occasional misaligned pin. It drove me nuts. You might have better luck or not care. Its your choice.

    Also know that the people you're shorting are the artists and designers that made the real ones, its essentially the same crime as pirating a movie or a CD.

    Is there a reputated agent for genuine products. How to tell if a product is KO? Buying it when it was just released probably a way to avoid it, any other way?

    I stop collecting transformers for a while and now coming back to it, it is just seems very overwhelming.
