    My dealer just called telling me he had just gotten in a Snarl, which is the last of the G1 dinobots I need. The thing is, he says the chrome and whatnot are in perfect condition and it has the accessories (asking $60 for it).

    Think it's possible (likely) that this is a knock-off? Are there Asian knock-off or reissue Snarls out there?

    After looking at the figure and some sites online, I figured it was genuine and in great condition so I bought it.

    Why would the Chinese go to the trouble of making these KOs if they weren't going to make tens of thousands? It's kind of silly to see a near-perfect quality KO going for 60 bucks.

    I'm confident it's not a knock-off. My dealer bought it from a local collectors private collection along with the rest of his TFs. The stickers look as aged as I'd expect, but the gold looks great!

    What store do you run?

    When you say dealer, its funnier to think you are referring to a drug dealer...because why the fuck would he have a transformer to sell you? :D

    Really nice find. Buy replacement stickers from Reprolabels.

    If you're thinking along the lines of Swoop, Mirage, Prime, and such ... no. Snarl does not exist.

    horrible knock-offs, yes. We're talking very obvious ones.

    Ha! No, no store, nor drug dealer. There's a local guy who runs a store that buys and sells lots of toys from local collections around town. The name "dealer" seemed to fit him.
