    I saw this last night and thought it was too good to be true, then JBrock of Seibertron made a post as well...and now I think these might be knockoffs.

    One of the things that bothers me is the Copyright says Hasbro Bradley, is that correct? I've seen Milton Bradley and I've seen Hasbro, but this is different (look at the auction for Sunstreaker).

    And if these are knockoffs well then how come Takara couldn't have done these and some Chinese company can?

    I am so on that Wheeljack. KO or not, I've always wanted one.

    I guess this is close to a confirmation:

    JBrock :
    They are sealed to white cardbackers like the Euro-classics and the boxes are missing the copywrites.

    Edit: Fucking Takara does G2 Prime, when they could have done these and now they won't do them because the Chinese beat them to it.

    Some online retailer needs to sell these, and ADVERTISE that they're selling them. I'd pay $10 to $20 for a G1 Sunstreaker/Wheeljack knock off.

    I knew it was gonna happen some day.....


    but i'm stlil somewhat dumbfounded.


    I wonder if Takara will respond to this in the way they responded to the 20Th Prime Trailers.

    Oh and ...bring on Mirage!!

    I don't believe Chinese KO maker can produce so many different mold one time.
    And we didn't hear anything about new KO recently......

    The boxes look a little beat up, not like the pristine Optimus Prime ones we saw before. Makes me think they're legit ones.

    Now that you mention it.......

    ....from what i can tell, Tracks doesen't have a Rubsign on the chest. IIRC, Tracks was from the second run of Classics in 91, when they dropped Rubsigns.

    Maybe some ARE repackaged Classics.

    That's what I was thinking. A little too much edge wear and little creases to be something that somebody just made. They're in good shape for vintage boxes, but poor for supposedly new KOs.
    Also, remember the bootleg Prime had that weird firm line/crease where a flap crease otherwise developed. These have a normal flap crease.

    These are not KO's look at the boxes, besides we would have seen "Test Shots" show up first before boxed ones showed.

    folks, these are NOT KO.
    they are 100% authentic!

    back in the year 1986,2 years later, when transformers tv series were firstly imported to China, they also import G1 transformers toys. but hasbro allow chinese factory to maunfactor G1 toys and sell in China. ALL G1 toys chinese fans can find in the chinese market were made in china. but they did NOT marked made in china. on the toys, they just blank the place where should be marked made in japan. same to the boxes...but they are 100% authentic!!
