    Should have merged the other thread with this one, since this lacks the ebay links.

    man, and I still need a hubcap to complete all of the minibots. I bought a loose one from someone on ebay who only showed the alt. mode. when I finally got around to opening the package a year later (don't ask) it ended up being a yellow cliffjumper :( 

    ps, anyone wanna trade a yellow cliffjumper for a hubcap?

    Is ebay the only place these have popped up? I haven't seen them on any of the regular KO sites.

    BTW, godsenddeath - nice avatar. Slayer's my "if I were stranded on a desert island" band.

    if they're anything like the KO bumblebee, best to avoid them. almost all bumblebee's face detail is gone.

    I click the eBay links, and it gives me a weird error page.

    What a weird choice for doing replicas. Cliffjumper I kinda get, but Hubcap?

    Still, they do look good, tho'.

    I get a "Page Not Responding" page when I click on those three links. I would love to get these if they are decent quality.

    At least they made it really easy to spot a fake Hubcap,

    There are a few other subtle differences, like some of the font sizes, but the card art is the most obvious.

    Have the keychain of Cliffjumper, but will be purchasing the K.O. Hubcap because quite frankly I have never had one and I cannot find the real one anywhere.

    But with these you wouldn't be getting a Hubcap, you'd be getting a Hubcap-looking phony.

    I don't get the 'well I could never find or afford it, so now here's my opportunity to finally have it' mentality with counterfeit reproduction/exact misb lookalikes because it's not the 'it' you've always wanted that you're getting. It's not even a 'Transformer' (in the brand sense).

    And in that case you still never will have one.
