    Hi Everyone,
    A couple of years ago I came accross a seller on eBay named eptoys71. He was selling a number of Knock-offs of the cassette transformers Rumble/Frenzy and Laserbeak/Buzzsaw. The cool thing was that these were the exact same size as the G1 versions and came in a number of different colors including "ghost" versions!!! I did manage to get a hand full of different colors and started to build up the cassette armies. After a while the seller dropped off eBay and I can't find anymore of these around. As far as I know, they were only produced using the Rumble/Frenzy and Laserbeak/Buzzsaw molds, but I may be wrong. I'm looking for anyone who has these that they want to sell or if there is any info as to where I can still find these and if they did similar versions for the other cassette transformer molds??? Here are a couple of pics to show what I'm talking about:

    Here's a pic of the size comparison with a G1 Frenzy and the "ghost" Knock-off:

    Please post or PM with any info!
    Thanks,

    Have you tried KOTOYS.com? I know they sell a few of these cassettes. Not sure if they'll have the exact ones your looking for, but give them a try.

    Those are some sharp looking KOs. Of course I am a sucker for clear plastic, so that might have something to do with it.

    If you ever find any more, please let me know. Those are sweet looking.

    EDIT: It would appear Marcatron is correct. KOToys.com seems to have some of the very same translucent cassettes. Looks like they only have clear and orange versions available though.
