    Taiwanese or not, it is definitely a KO. It saids "Testron" and "Liocaesar" on the box. I'm not into vintage TFs but that can't be right.

    If I'm not mistaken though, it was made using the offical molds and is very close to the same quality as the original.

    Correct, as a matter of fact except for the stickers and some color differences you would not know the difference, oh and the stamping. I am willing to bet that many have this one or parts of this one and believe it to be the original. A very nice piece.

    I used to own Jargua from that set. Quality was awesome, better built than some later original tfs I had. It had the working mechanism, breast partner, the whole shebang. If anyone is having second thoughts over this being a bootleg - just don't. This piece is simply amazing.

    There's a loose theory that the quality of this toy, and the fact that Hasbro Europe could only source 4 of the molds when making up the "Rescue Force" are linked.

    In terms of quality is it on par with the Metamorph versions of Liokaiser?

    But at least in the KO Dinoking auction the seller actually mentions it was a repro (or KO I forgot how they worded it). In this case they don't even do that though there should be enough clues to make people suspicious.

    heh, I take no offense. But that was one of the "clues" I was thinking of as well. :thumbs2: 


    And thanks Megamus for the response and info. =)
