    When Knockoffs are better than the Officials

    When Knockoffs are better than the Officials, you know something is wrong.

    I just received my Ravage USB 34 GB Flashdrive. But wait, it only comes in 2 GBs! Yep, I bought a knockoff willingly. And I don't regret it. The joints are great, a bit stiff, but at least they are not floppy. Transformation is smooth, and the USB part doesn't push in when you try to plug it in. The white legs are way better than the sliver ones in the Official.

    However there is only two small problems I have with it. Ravage's jaw is, very lose. No joint at all. Second is the Decepticon logo being blue. Other than that, it was worth my money.

    They have their advantages. got any pictures? Also you can sue Super Glue or Future Shine floor polish to tighten his jaw. finally, you can use Reprolabels to get a good-quality Decepticon logo to stick on him.

    I got two of them one looks a bit like a dog and has a big head and short body and blue logo it's about 20% bigger than the normal one.

    And the one I like best has a purple logo short body white legs (no gaps in the legs like the official one) and is slightly bigger than the official one.

    Both have one less joint in the neck but otherwise have better jaws. the tails are a little better on the 2nd one as they are attached both sides and more securely.

    I'd say that type is better by far than the official Cheetor I bought in terms of mould.

    4GB isn't bad but how much is the 34GB? (That's kind of a strange number... I could see 32MB...)

    # 330610468688 & the amazon link - That's the long body version... I've not got one of them yet.

    I got 3 of these (they are quite dog like) RED: New 4GB Transformers USB Flash Memory Stick Drive Pen | eBay & WHITE : http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-4GB-T...ultDomain_3&hash=item3361ae71c0#ht_1368wt_654

    There's also a cheetor KO : http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4GB-Trans...ge_Internal&hash=item1e631ffed4#ht_3695wt_715

    This cheetor mould look interesting its obviously a fake by the price - but it looks identical or nearly identical to the real one :

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fashion-4...ge_Internal&hash=item43a910769f#ht_4989wt_990

    I think this body is the best one :

    Well if you can find a real Device Label Ravage for less than the price of a MP toy then your a cleverer than me.

    Beside if they make that Bootleg Cheetor mould in Ravage colours that may be the only way to get something as close to the DL Ravage as a CHMS Jet is to a Universe seeker. so hopefully that will happen as happy as I am with my KO a smaller one might be fun to have too.

    Damn, I was hoping for $10 it was the better one. This is the one I have. It is too long in my opinion. I need the shorter one. Anyone have a link for that one?

    The one you want has a purple logo, white legs, and a lockable retractable usb tip with the slider that's a white oval that looks like an astronaut's boot print..

    The one linked above is an examples of this.... but they may not be the cheapest or the highest capacity available... I've not seen that body type with the really high capacities though. But I've got a few different sorts and that one seems to be the best of the bunch.
