    If this is someone's auction, I am sorry in advance. I have a hard time believing that someone's kid found this alone with other knockoffs which as far as I know can only be found overseas. I mean come one, it's a knockoff, we all know it's a knockoff. People buy knockoffs, CALL IT A KNOCKOFF and be done with it. I am so sick of people trying to put one over on the collectors. I really hope that people know enough not to fall for this crap but...
    Oh well, I'm off my soapbox for now.

    The seller's TFW2005 name is TTTT and he runs a website where he sells KOs. He's also known as zhengzhaos on eBay as well.

    Also, his shipping is kinda high. :rolleyes:

    As I said I am not trying to upset anyone. I personally did not like his wording. It made it seem like they were vintage, of course this could just be me...

    Has anyone done a review of the wheeljack, octane, and springer ko?

    Oh, I completely agree on the wording. Given his knowledge of these he's clearly trying to fool buyers and maybe eBay. It's tantamount to a scam IMO.

    A Wheeljack guide has been made: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...99-g1-wheeljack-original-vs-reproduction.html

    Cool, I debating on whether or not to buy the octane and springer to do a review of them like I did for Swoop and Mirage. I would hate for someone to buy a knockoff thinking it was an original.
