    I'm a big Sideswipe fan and shockingly, do not have a G1 figure of him. I'm looking at this reissue one thats on ebay and for some reason, every time i look at the picture, i keep thinking it's a KO. I don't know if there ever was one, but i thought i should ask here.

    Here's the link. I may not get it as it's quite pricey, but in case i do, i want to make make sure it's not a KO.

    If you search online, sometimes you might come across a 'clear' variant G1 toy ala 'diaclone Swoop' remake etc.. or a repainted G1 'Tigertrack' out of a junker Sideswipe etc.. As far as I am aware that box looks to minty and slightly too sharp and new to be a original release.

    IMHO, just try and get a Takara Book collection Sideswipe/ Hasbro Commemorative series for roughly the same price. :)

    Terrible at communication, shipping is expensive, thought they will likely ship to UK. Everything I've ordered from them has arrived well packed and in good condition. Lowest prices on the planet generally.

    I disagree with the guy above me when it comes to communication. They've always answered my questions and helped a lot. Shipping is more expensive compared to shipping from UK to UK, but that's pretty obvious. If you request it, you can make sure you won't have to pay extra customs fees. Never had a problem with the packaging with them.
    For most Asian products (3rd party, Takara etc) they're cheaper including shipping than the competitors are before shipping.

    You pay with paypal, if you order this together with a pre-order item, they'll both be sent when the pre-order item is in stock.

    I think that's the most typical RK questions covered :)

    You can tell it is a fake because there is no assortment number on it.
