    Dear TF fans,

    I just noticed on ioffer.com that there are quite a few TF G1 KOs around.

    What surprised me is how good they actually look. Does anyone have any experience with these toys? Are they any good?

    I normally wouldn't consider buying any KOs, but these look amazing and E-Hobby/Encore haven't released any legit reissues in ages...

    These are the ones I'm interested in:

    - All dinobots
    - Wheeljack
    - Mirage
    - Sunstreaker
    - Cyclonus
    - Scourge
    - Menasor giftset
    - Devastator giftset

    I would greatly appreciate any feedback from experienced buyers.

    Thanks guys!

    If you're referring to the ones offered by kotoys, the quality is top notch. I own the devastator, and wheeljack, and several others. They are every bit as good as the real thing.

    Completely agreed. For a fraction of the cost of a minty-fresh one, and in some cases, for a severely low fraction. Mint Wheeljack for $32.... All 5 Dinobots for $130.... Shockwave for $70.... Would have spent a small fortune otherwise, and I'm perfectly fine with them being KOs (not that I could tell them apart in the wild anyway).

    Wow, amazing guys! You made my day!

    I just bought them off iOffer.com. They seemed quite a bit cheaper than the ones presented on kotoys.com. I've also read quite a few complaints about that website on various forums.

    I'm happye :D

    Congrats on your purchases.

    I also refuse to use kotoys.com as I had a bad experience with them and bought my KO's off of iOffer. The only KO's I own are the Dinobots and with the exception of Swoop, they are pretty solid quality (Swoop's problem is that he doesn't stand very well and needs to be propped up so he doesn't lean forward).
