    Hi, a friend of mine found 2 old G1 Transformers in his house. One is Micromaster Flattop and the other is Mirage. But the problem is that his Flattop is orange instead of purple and his Mirage is a simpler version with less chrome and made of what it seems to be only plastic, and its legs don't separate. He can't find copyright marks on flattop and on Mirage it only says "Made in Taiwan". Does anyone know what versions are these 2 vintage Transformers? Are they KOs as they appear to be? He has them from when he was a kid, so they are vintage items anyway. Are they any worth? At least they seem to be rare as I searched on the net and found nothing about either.

    Please check the photos:

    Oh wow, it's like a Micromaster Sunstorm! Cool!

    Don't have any info on them, sorry.

    The Mirage is a KO, there was also a yellow one.

    Well thought, I like it better now, the Sunstorm Micromaster :)  . Thanks.

    Thanks for the help :)  . It really looked like a KO, and so it is.

    I still haven't seen both of them in hand, but I will be with my friend in a few days and I'll try to find a copyright stamp on Flattop. I'll then write here if I found it or not.
