    The seller says the toy does not have any stamping on it, so that means it's a fake? I thought the fake one have "taiwan" stamping on it.

    the MICROCHANGE ko's are pretty much the EXACT SAME as the original, and even beat some of todays re-issues in quality, the only difference is the lack of stamping. if your a purist, and want the takara stamp, go ahead, but seriously, back before transformes existed, and there were KO's of microchange toys, the quality is right up there, and sometimes run just a few $ cheaper than teh originals.

    yup no stamp = bootleg.

    I find most sellers on ebay selling Microx are selling the bootleg one.

    you exaggerate. they may have been pretty decent but the sculpt (the preciseness of the mold), the materials (notably the chrome parts) and the fitting is distinctly not up to the par to the originals. i even dare claim, blindfolded, i can tell apart my microx bootleg and original reflector.
