    I just got this email form toy-valley (they carry the KO cassettes and Swoop, etc.)

    It appears to be mis-transformed in package (the legs aren't pulled out) but that could be fixed. and it has a Decepticon rub sign.

    It appears to be stamped by Takara, so be carefull if you're buying a bumblebee and want an original.

    good news for some, bad news for others

    let the discussion begin

    Ebay:
    Or you could just buy the key chain for less than $5.

    I dunno... the keychains are all right, but the color looks better on this KO. The BB keychain is kind of a paler, lemon yellow, while this looks to be a deeper yellow closer to the original figure. Although the face looks a bit off on this.... much more angular, I think? I don't have the original figure nearby to compare, unfortunately.

    Actually, I kinda hope the face IS noticeably different..... if only because it will be a good tip-off to people as to whether or not they are buying a KO.

    Anyone with a brain will know this thing is fake. you can tell from the packaging shot that almost all the facial detail is gone, and the molding is pretty crap-tastic too.

    Doesn't the original have a painted rear bumber as well-this KO does not.

    The molding looks pretty bad on that, I think I see some flash on it too.

    Things like this make me pleased to have the keychain version sitting in front of me.

    Like others, I'm a little surprised they bothered with Bumblebee, since decent-quality BB's aren't too difficult to get for a reasonable price, especially if you aren't overly picky.

    Bumblebee IS a spy after all. Suppose some Decepticon rubbed his chest, hmm? :)
