    Disagree on Sunstreaker, broken accessories and splitting tires immediately. Mirage is very high quality. Swoop was alright, not that there was much to work with. Every Wheeljack I got had chipped feet out of the box.

    Yeah it's a legit toy, but LOTS of scammers are selling it. I bought it and got nothing.

    There has been a price drop on that LG version from everything I've seen on ebay in last six months. My guess would be more old stock turned up / gotta move them on.
    Just a guess, I really have no idea.

    They are cheap, but buy from reliable sellers so you are not sitting around waiting for a refund like I have been the last two months.

    Nope, no clue as to why Sonokong was replaced with Mocom Toy...just a guess here, but I'm assuming that Sonokong probably do anything "bad" to lose the license, otherwise there probably would have been at least some discussion about it here and on other forums at the time. Mocom Toy manufactures their toys in China, and not South Korea (like Sonokong did), so maybe that had something to do with it (economic factors).

    Maybe a stupid question, but if a Masterpiece is in a Hasbro box, it's probably not a KO, right? Like, the KOs mimic Takara packaging, not the US release.
