    I'm pretty sure it's a taiwanese bootleg, but one of the better ones.

    i know where you can find one of those, but i'm positive its vintage, i bought my vintage silverbolt in that store, right next to it, was something like that you won

    It's a KO, no doubt about it. Metamorphs is a KO brand name. I've seen it used on KO Liokaiser members. It is made pretty good though, nice buy

    yep, 100% fake taiwan KO. has all the accessories and a really nice buy. it's really hard to find in taiwan, looks like most of the "recent" finds came from european sellers

    bumble prime really hooked me up on it, hope you didn't pay a high price for it....there was one on ebay for $25 a couple months ago with no bids...about $40 with shipping

    why do you keep bumping this thread when you already have your answer. It's a KO/bootleg. a very high quality bootleg. it is IDENTICAL to the original.

    original

    Honestly, and I'm not piss-taking here, I find it absolutely astounding that anyone could be on the fence about the official nature of this boxset when it says "METAMORPHS" in massive letters at the top of the package.

    I was reading this thread thinking "Were Transformers known as Metamorphs in some obscure region of the world and I just didn't know it?"
