    Up first, coming at you from the deep jungles of south east korea,

    A really odd G1 smokescreen/mercedes benz reshell hybid. He's quite rare, but shows up in all sorts of packaging. Might be one for the G1 knockoff collectors.

    I'll update this thread whenever I find something unusual that i find interesting, or that i think might be interesting to other collectors.

    I know a lot of people want these, but they retail for about $15-$20 depending on the packaging, plus shipping from Korea (15/22 for surface/airmail). Thats a lot of money for a knockoff, and thats even with me being a nice guy and making next to no profit. I'd hate to be known for ripping people off- especially if the quality wasn't that great for individuals. Having said that i will grab these and send them off if people are aware that i'm not in it to make money, i'm only doing a favor by being the actual guy who goes to the store, not a retailer.

    Edit, korean post office linky.

    Here's a question, what kind of ginat/oversize KO's can you find over there?
    I'm really big into those. (pun not intended...)

    Lots of em, i can get a giant sized onslaught knockoff, and that semi famous oversized prowl from crazy steves page.

    Unfortunalty i can't take out of package fully transformed pictures because I only personally own a few of these, the rest i just see in stores. And shopkeepers are a bit difficult when i ask them can I take something out of the box to photograph it before i buy it.

    From now on if someone has a request to buy something, would you mind pming me, or checking the junkion exchange, so i can just use this thread as a showcase of unusual things i find, rather than an impromptu store.

    As per request, photos!!

    As a side note, the vigellent amoung you may notice that this is not a mercedes/ nor is it the blue colour scheme of the mercedes knockoff. Thats because these knockoffs are part of a series of three. This one is a Hyundai Grandeur, who i call white face.

    I have no mercedes to photograph as i sold them, but they are the exact same robot, just with a different shell and bluestreak colours, rather than prowl.

    Sorry about that. Seeing a new G1 bot like that (new to me atleast) can get some of us pretty excited.
    And you raise a good point and excellent reason why
    people should use the pm's.


    Killer pics btw. Man Korea seems to be getting all the cool stuff lately. Plus all the Brave's they have.
    I dunno, it's probably been like that though.
    Thanks for the link, maybe we can help that guy out and boost his buisness a little

    Lately? Indeed not. The licenses on all of these read 1991, and the boxes certainly look 15 years old. Korea is actually very sparse for the purists. Almost no mainline TF's make it out here. If brave is your thing then you're in heaven. If knockoffs are your thing you'll probably be in hell, there's just so many and varied knockoffs it would eventually drive you crazy.

    My next showcase will probably be a very strange overlord figure, by of all people, academy models!
