    I'm probably gonna get flamed for posting the this link
    but check the new "reissues". There are dinobots, Soundblaster/Wave and Liokaiser. With rumors of Mirage and Wheeljack, the chinese bootleggers are really going crazy.

    The Just Toys dinobot "reissues" are quite old, and quite well liked as well. The auction should probably mention that they're not quite a G1 replica... being no more than a few inches tall.

    yeah, the seller, lien, says they are the justi versions but i hope nobody thinks those are 1:1 scale. the soundblaster, perceptor, hot rod are made in china bootleg quality. the liokaiser has no breastforce partners and a doubledealer missile carrier shell has been remolded to work as one of the arms, its a scale up of a micro version from china.

    the difference w/ these and the tapes, swoop, bumblebee,etc... is the "nicer" KOs are reversed engineered by someone in hong kong and produced w/ some factory connection in shanghai.

    the new "accurate" KO's have a planned mirage, devastator, and wheeljack. And i don't remember seeing this reported on any english forums but an ebay seller accidentally posted some preview pictures of a sunstreaker as well.

    there are 2 types of KO ...

    1. the kind you posted. These are obvious knock offs that have plagued Wal-Mart Easter baskets for years.

    2. The kind which are reverse engineered and are placed in near idential, G1 packaging with the bubble.

    #2 are a bit more desirable to collectors.

    #1 are good for people who don't want to pony up for gesalt parts.

    Has anyone got the KO sixshot. I've been wanting a sixshot and the KO looks pretty decent, but one can never tell until it's in hand. I'd want someone vouching for it before I forgo the real thing.

    I'm also interested in KO Sixshot. As far as I remember that Predaking KO was pretty good quality.

    And like Ligerprime, I only buy KOs if they're quality made. I have a G1 Sandstorm KO from way back in the '90s, and I can tell you, there is NO difference between him and the original, I had both at one time so I know. I also have a G1 Scrapper KO, that is also great. It's a slightly lower quality, but still he's great. He still has his canopy and there isn't anything wrong with his chrome. He's a bit loose though, but every toy gets loose after play.
