    How is the quality of that prime? It looks pretty good and I'm sure it'd make good bash fodder for a decent price. Next question; how much?

    Cool. Depending on how good the quality is, and how easy it is to get ahold of, this could make for some great kitbash fodder.

    Here are some details

    1. I got it from Thailand during my vacation but saw another in a night market in Hong Kong
    2. Roughly costs around US 20-25
    3. Same height & size as the original
    4. Some of the details are gone i.e. the mesh in the truck's front grill and other small details
    5. A little bit loose. Needs tightening of screws
    6. Got electronic sound of a truck
    7. Solid when transformed in truck mode.
    8. Hands are indeed black and not articulated
    9. The folding gun is way too loose. That's why its not attached

    Basically bought it for bashing. Plastic wise okay for a KO

    Simple. To cash in on the popularity and provide a cheaper alternative that some folks will inevitably choose over the real deal.

    hmm i can definitily understand the "KOing" in G1, as the originals sometimes reach values over a thousand dollars, but seriously, over 30-40€ ? Even in the seller's point of view that's not only a long shot, it's a wallet suicide.

    Man, that Prime's not a proper KO unless it's twice as big/small and cast in hot pink.

    Yes, but if they cost very little to produce and you flood markets all over Asia with them, I'm sure you turn a tidy profit. If this weren't the case, we wouldn't see so many of them.

    I'm thinking it's being aimed at Markets that didn't get any Hasbro love.


    EDIT: Or what Jarodimus said.
