    Just went out to take a look at some ROTF toys today, and was in for a surprise. Among the usual Transformers toys, I found some counterfeit ones.
    It was pretty easy to spot the fake products. Usually here in Sri Lanka, toys are expensive due to import charges and import taxes (A Deluxe Class toy is around $40 - $200). But the counterfeit toys are cheap as hell (just $3). The packaging was fake, the plastic is cheap and the best part was, they were named "Transformers : Revenge Of The Allen". Allen ? Who's Allen ? :D  I also found a ROTF backpack, but I have to admit, it was pretty cool. But don't think it was official too though.
    P.S : The counterfeit Megatron toy (Or should I say, "Distortion Android") was awesome for a counterfeit toy. The plastic was ok and the attention to detail was good.
    P.S 2 : There were 4 other toys(Robot Replicas counterfeit, Alternity Bumblebee counterfeit, 2 Transformers Animated counterfeits). But I was unable to take pics. Maybe next time.

    Enjoy the Pics !!! :D 

    Shoppers Beware !!! Allen is coming !!!

    Don't know for sure, if the BackPack was unofficial or not ?

    I've seen "Revenge of the Allen" toys before. I guess they are making it big time.

    Funny thing is Allen works as a Transformers name. Maybe a mechanic named after an allen wrench?
