    These are off a site I saw a while back. I am unsure whose they are, could be Maz. These are the images I sent to the manufacturer when we were initally in talks about making the figure.

    The stripes were removed half way through the clear run of the Mirage. None of the black version have the stripes on it and when we were discussing the red one, it was said to leave the stipes off this one as well because of the two images I had did not have the stripes on the car. They are available on the sticker sheet so you can chose if you want to apply the stickers or not.

    Hey Spencer I've been wondering one time, since you're in contact with manufacturers, is there any way to clear up the ambiguity between KO's and authentic TFs by having them add or remove something on the packaging or figure to help differentiate? Not trying, to stir things up, just curious.

    Just wanted to chime in here and say I have one of the red Mirage's and they are top-notch quality! A fantastic remake of a rare and beautiful toy.

    IMO it looks even better fully stickered up :) 

    Cheers!

    I have expressed concerns about this but have not been able to get the whole point across. Language is a big issue and i don't think that I can get the whole idea across of why it would be a good idea to alter certain things to keep these seperate. They do want to create items as close to originals as possible.

    I only have limited input with these guys. They understand some of what I am telling them from a collector standpoint but I also think there is a lot they don't get.

    Price point is also something we just can't seem to agree on. I keep saying larger runs and less cost would sell a whole lot more of these but they continue to go with smaller runs with the higher cost. I would love to be able to offer these around the $30 to $40 price range but what they are charging for them from the factory, there is just no way that is possible.

    Well, keep up the good work and keep trying! Maybe you will break through to them!!

    BTW, Wheeljack & Sunstreaker were due in October. Any word on them?? Did they get pushed back like JustitToys pushed back the WST Dino's?

    Yea I still want my K.O Sunstreaker & Wheeljack. I have Mirage.
    The clear one are cool, but too pricey for what I would pay, also I don't dig clear fig's that much :)

    I received the A3U newsletter yesterday and all it said that the Wheeljack and Sunstreaker replicas were pushed back. I would have posted the the newsletter but I deleted it already.

    I just ordered my Red Mirage about an hour ago. I'm hoping to get this shipped along with my clear Mirage :D
