    Kind of feel like you guys ripped off my ID guide. I would have appreciated a link back to my website or something...

    Yeah i agree , you have had this info up for a long while. I have used it to get KOs removed from ebay many times. You should get some kind of credit for this..

    They credited me for Botcon Mirage and Henkei Thundercracker's pages.

    This is well due.

    I love the resources on this. Too bad that most of the sets are unobtainable or go for a fortune now...
    No Revoltech Shockwave? And I miss the knight commander resin kit too.

    Glad to see another archive for modern KOs, and I'm a huge fan of the quirky vintage KOs figures. Double win!

    Will we see information about molding details for the actual figures and accessories, as well as paperwork? How about running changes/versions for the KOs (ie Shockwaves now apparently having a longer, more accurate hose)?

    This. At least the fp'd article has mention of it (added after you posted?), but, IMO, each figure entry should ideally have a references section, possibly with superscripted identifying details to said references.

    How is this going to treat things like the more recent DIA commander knock off?

    Little harsh calling 3rd party original productions Knock Offs. You cant knock off something that never existed, even if it resembles someone else IP. But I can understand the classification hassle it might have cause too.

    Any plans for pictures detailing the differences of the actual knock off products, especially the figures themselves?

    Crediting issue is now fixed.

    Stuff like this, if you want to get it added to the page then please submit it as a resources submission. These are all things I'd like to eventually see added to the Resources section.

    And yeah, technically third party is not knockoff, but it is still unofficial. It made sense to plug all the unofficial bits into one sub section.

    Unless you mean my creative positioning for the iGear coneheads?

    If you take a look on Shadow Commander, there is a note on there about knockoff versions. I intend to add similar notes to the rest of the pages.
