    What's the quality level on the 'Asian Reissue' KO's that one can find on ebay?

    Want them mainly for display. I love the designs and they were some of my favorites as a kid.

    If you don't mind not having an original. There are just some slight differences I had a KO Swoop but the rub sign is on the wrong side. Some don't come with a rub sign. Some small errors printing on some of the boxes. Mine had two swords and No missle launchers but came with missles. I wasn't to impressed and sold mine. I might just buy a box for my swoop so I can have a 5 dinobots MIB. If you are hard up on cash or want the clear ones I say go for it. Just remember you pay for what you get.

    I have them all. If they were cheaper, THEN they would be worth it. But at an average 60$-80$ a pop, they're definitely waaay overpriced. They are average/good fakes but not enough to justify such a tag price. I was very disapointed with that product quite frankly.

    I had heard that they were slightly smaller than the originals. That true?
    I'm planning on tracking down some complete/displayable originals in the next couple of months. Of course the last time I did that, some nice reissues came out a very short time afterwards.
