    I got this one for about $4 and it's not that bad it doesn't have anything really major wrong with it BUT

    Which Sky Garry is it?

    :confused:

    The only Sky Garry there was...

    Yours has split legs where the original had one solid piece.

    Looks like it's this knockoff:
    http://www.toyarchive.com/Transformers/Knockoffs/SkyGarry1.html
    Characteristics: Huge, crappy quality, split legs

    There were also some others, including
    1) http://www.geocities.com/tfrework/knockoff.html (second-to-last image)
    Characteristics: Small, crappy quality, split legs

    2) http://www.geocities.com/tfrework/knockoff.html (third-to-last image)
    Characteristics: 1:1, high quality, includes trailer and (wrong) micromaster
    This one was sold at TRU in the 1990's. It's pretty awesome.

    3) http://www.toyarchive.com/Transformers/Knockoffs/SkyGarry2.html
    Characteristics: Huge, crappy quality, split legs (basically same as yours) plus chrome and extra pieces.

    Why do you people say it's crappy??? It has a better quality then most of the Big Lots bootleg's? And it transforms perfect...I don't see why people hate this when they DON'T even have this figure..:poop 


    Besides it's the same comments from the same person...He didn't even open the package to find out IF it was as bad as he thought.....

    I had that one. Terrible plastic quality, felt like washing up liquid bottle grade plastic than real toy grade plastic. Very flimsy. For $4, it's a good indicator of what the real thing is like though.

    I do own it, and I think it is crappy. Like Sol Fury said, the plastic is a very bad consistency for a Transformers toy. That's the main problem. The only redeeming quality it has is that it is freaking huge.

    Two different web site owners said the Sky Garry knockoffs from the one company are poor quality. They wouldn't have made the comment if they had not opened it. They probably bought one to keep sealed and one to open. You really shouldn't make such bad assumptions about people.

    Not the way the internet works. You ask a question, everyone can comment even if it does not answer the question.

    if you have the original or the sonokong deathgarry, then you would realize how much that KO really does suck. but at $4, its a good replacement for the real thing I guess.

    Whose feelings were hurt??

    I just mentioned that I found one, was interested how many different REAL Sky Garry's were made and what came with them and for the PRICE ($4) that is wasn't that poor quality that's all

    And for the record I know it's not the great quality but that's not the reason for this thread....:horse:

    You didn't make that clear, and since there was only 1 version of Sky Garry made and multiple KO versions, it was easy to assume that you meant the different knockoff versions available. That's why I took 5 minutes out of my day to list the four KO versions for you.

    You know, it's not like I went on a rant about how bad it is. All I said was that it was "crappy quality". And this was simply to differentiate it from the higher quality version. That's all.

    And then you (A) said it was not poor quality, and (B) said that the people on the web sites didn't know what they were talking about. If you don't want a discussion to emerge in a thread about something you don't want to talk about, then don't take a strong position disagreeing with something someone has said about that topic. By dwelling on the quality of the knockoff, YOU have focused the thread on the topic of its quality, no one else.

    I have the TRU one with solid legs. Overall the figure is very solid, you'd almost not know it is a KO. But I have never liked how much of a brick it is.

    Like what everybody else said, "It's a piece of crap compared to the original". I too have the original and it's way better and it's well worth the market price.

    By the way, you asked for information. Be happy that people are answering and willing to share their knowledge. At the same time, just because you start a thread doesn't mean you control it. Like someone said earlier, that's not how the internet works. Just be happy a lot of knowledgeable guys were willing to take time out to share some info for you.
