I saw the other thread on the News forum about Transrepro still being in business and it seemed everyone was happy about that. I really don't want to start a fight or anything but it got me wondering.... With some parts and accessories being rather expensive to obtain sometimes, why is the reproduction of these parts not looked at in the same light as a straightforward KO like the high quality G1 look-alikes? Wouldn't some of the G1 authentic purists be mad if they spent a large some of money to obtain a rare part only to find out it's a repro? Also, same goes for repro labels...why would these same purists decide to put reproduction "KO" stickers on their original figures just to make it look better?? I mean after all, it IS repro'ed and not 100% authentic anymore. I'm not trying to argue whether any form of KOs are right or wrong...that's been done to death....I just wondered why one is not viewed the same as another. Any ideas?
