    Looks like he'll be easy to ID. His chest is missing a black piece...

    Sorry, but I just wont buy Sunstreaker until we get an official Takara/Tomy or Hasbro Reissue. I don't care what they have to do to make it, just as long as it leads to an end of these rampant knockoffs.

    Even worse, when it comes to buying accessories, how will one know the difference between an original or a knockoff? Those fists would be hell.

    Rumors of a Fortress Maximus reissue. I kid you not.

    But that's the thing, I'd want an official reissue. Not a knockoff.

    sadly this doesn't surprise me with the high prices the maximuses demand it was likely only a matter of time before before it got a full scale KO too much potential money to be made, that said a well done fort max KO at a reasonable price would make me buy one

    A Full size Fort Max KO? I would jump all over that because complete ones have been selling for 1000 bucks on ebay.

    I look forward to an in-hand review but if he's as well made as Mirage was then he'll be mine. Not like I haven't given TakaraTomy a good 8 years to reissue it first, since I started collecting again.

    I got mirage, who to be honest, I didnt think was that great. his limbs dont stand straight, his gun fits too lose in his hand, and overall the toy just looks crooked. (but on the other hand, so does encore jazz)

    Sunstreaker has to be at least up to par or better then mirage for me to consider getting one. I heard wheeljack has paint problems, screw that, I dont want something that's gonna be damaged as soon as you handle it.

    I love how when there's a G1 KO everyone is like "Yeah more G1!"

    But when it's something not G1 they are like
    "Oh noes this is copy right infringement, Hasbro better sue. Sign my online petition to sue Hasbro."

    :rolleyes:

    This is terrible news for collectors.

    Great news for tight-arsed, cheap-o people who are happy to accept inferior product and then claim their "G1 collection is complete".

    Unless you got G1s in your collection, no, it's not a complete G1 collection.

    I do not have a problem with KOs really, as long as they are not trying to represent themselves as the real thing. Thats why some of theese pretty high quality KOs are annoying to me.

    I mean if they are good quality and HasTak has not done them in years, and they were not packaged as a direct copy of MISB G1 then I would be interested. But the deliberate misleading of the things are just a pass to me.

    Especially when you consider the price is kinda silly for even a good quality KO.

    I have KOs. I like my KOs but I have never once while buying them thought they were the real toys. I think theese guys making the high quality dinobots/sunstreakers/etc would probably get more buisiness if they were not trying to pawn them off as authentic.
