    So that's doufaceb. Looks like he's becoming one of North America's main distributors for the G1 ko/bootlegs.

    Typical, just after I spent £31 on a G1 original.

    It's a nice looking one though! :)

    Dammit. I am working hard to get MIB originals. I don't want to have to sort out whats real and whats not.

    I cant put a KO in my collection. I just cant do it. And if I was the least bit tempted (I do want the inserts) the prices kill that feeling real quick. Ill stick with my originals and those of you who like KO's, enjoy.

    Personally, if I could get a KO Grimlock easily and for a decent price, I would (I'm currently on the hunt for a G1 Grimlock). As for Sunstreaker and Wheeljack, I'm going to stick with the upcoming Universe Sunstreaker and my custom Wheeljack (I've also got another kitbash idea for an even more "Classics" Wheeljack).

    Well, for me, the same situation applies here as it did for G1 Mirage. I hunted high & low for an original MIB version, and even with the expectation of paying over $100, I still could not find one for a reasonable price and ended up getting the KO version instead. It's exactly the same with Wheeljack & Sunstreaker, so I'll admit that I'm looking forward to these KO's getting released. I never transform them to bot mode anyway and strictly use them for display purposes in alt mode next to their Alternator counterparts, so it makes it a tad easier pill to swallow that they're not the originals.

    Now if only someone would release G1 Trailbreaker...
