    So, i recieved my pirated g1 boxed prime today, and have 2 black versions on order, and here is what i think.

    the quality of the plastic is super. just like the original. the box seems to be a bit thicker cardboard and is easlily distinguishable for an authentic one.
    the main thing is the trailor stickers are un-applied. inside and out, but comes with a sheet, in identical quality to the originals. the cut however is slightly off where it curves up, so there is a part wich remains uncovered.

    the big issue with prime cab is that the head has no screw to keep it on, not even a hole in the plastic to put one in. another thing is the sticker around the cab seems to have been 1 solid piece, then cut with a knife at the joints.

    the joints are tight, and moldimg detail is awsome. if i didn't know my transformers, i could never tell this was a pirated edition. Even the mold used is an early one, as the front wheel hubs are short, like the pre-ultra magnus and re-issue ones

    my question is this: does anyone else have one, and do yo uhave the same issues?

    for $45, i'm extremly happy, and can't wait for the black ones to arrive

    That means the seller makes about $15-$20 profit which has the toy's manufactured price at $25, just like in the '80s. How cool. We need to make a deal with the manufacturer.
