    Hi,

    I'm not sure if I should have put this in the ebay section, but here goes anyway.

    I've found on ebay some RiD transformers - ie Ultra Magnus and a JRX set. The auctions say they are manufactured by Takara but imported by Korea. Does anyone know if these are knock-offs or genuine Takara?

    Also I have a Hasbro UK / US version of the Optimus Prime from RID will the Takara version of Magnus still connect ok with it to make Omega Prime?

    They are genuine. Not knockoffs. The RiD Prime should connect fine with a Takara Ultra Magnus (Unless someone else here can say different?)

    The Korea ones are official but manufactured by Sonokong and licensed by Takara. So they are legit. It is like how Hasbro licenses the molds from Japan but produces them for the US market.

    The Takara versions and the US versions are the same but only differ in paint apps; so they will connect properly to make Omega Prime.
