    So... what are the WST Dinobots? There's no mention that they're licensed by HasTak on their site, and they seem to be exclusive to tfsource.com.

    Are they licensed? Are they KOs? If they're not official, why haven't they been sued? I've seen some members make negative comments about them, but I'm not sure why they're being so widely accepted if they're essentially KOs.

    Anyone?

    yeah, they're KOs. as for suing, china has this fun habit of ignoring copyright laws.

    definately KOs, but produced for the fan community and not bargain bins.

    They're also the best KO I've ever seen. Snarl is amazing and I can't wait to get the others.

    Would'nt go as far as to calling them ko's , that sounds a little harsh for what they are.

    Let's say their unique and well worth the $15 tag. hehe
    Snarl is the best little dinobot remake Ive ever come across.
    Feels just like the true classic, but smaller. Designed with true care and attention to detail.
    They blow the rest of the WST's away IMO

    Yeah, pretty much. Check out what Dr. Rutledge ran into in China.

    Yeah. They've gone as far as including diecast and paint. It's a 95% replica of the originals at half the size. Plastic quality is great. Engineering is great.

    The only thing is that I wouldn't call them WSTs. They're in scale with WSTs, but not WSTs themselves (kinda' like how For Max is in scale with WSTs, but is definatly not a WST). Snarl was about the same size as G1 Bumblebee or Rumble, and I expect these new guys to be the same.

    One way or another, they're a fantastic buy.
