Haha hasbro reall needs to crack down on these KO's
N what amazes me s people buying the KO when the real thing will be cheaper. At least from this seller.
And why would you do that? It's quite ugly and will never see a reason good enough to warrant spending $30 for shipping
For the same reason folks pay double or triple (or more) for these animated toys on ebay just a few months before their mass release. Its ridiculous, but they do it because they can... and then there's the curiosity factor with all sorts of these KOs
More sad that there are suckers here who would buy them and support the degradation of our hobby, meanwhile spending more than the toy would cost at retail. Just IMHO.
Wouldn't be a first. The Roadbots (most of which are clearly copied from Alternators with the surface detailing altered on the parts, and the SUV is copied from Energon Ironhide) had their fully finished Ford GT up and going before we'd seen anything other than the grey resin proto of Mirage publicly.
Ok this is funny, they having even come out in the states yet, and there already knock offs , lol way to go hasbro
I love KO's. Generally a sucker for ones with goofy colors and alterations. If I wasn't in a current financial bind, I'd be all over this auction despite the shipping costs.
Yeah, I'm shocked Animated isn't on the shelf yet. The show's entering its third season. Holding the toys off this long is totally bizzare, and something came to fill the void.
I understand not pushing the movie toys off the shelf when they're selling like hotcakes, but I really think it's time. By the same token, is Animated going to get any chance to sell? The movie has cut into the shelf time of like 4 or 5 waves of Animated toys. I can't see Hasbro holding whatever comes after Animated back from the shelves so I'm guessing that Animated won't be able to make up all of this missed time.
This toy looks like crap.
Kinda doubt that would happen. Places like Big Lots, drug stores, or flea markets are another story though.
Heh, well everyone wants to make a buck.
Well that was speedy work
Hasbros fault for delaying the launch, probably to shift the huge surplus of unwanted movie dross
I thought Hasbro was supposed to be cracking down on stuff like this?
What a total embarasment for them that an unreleased toy from one of their flagship toylines has already been counterfieted, and is already easily availible to consumers.
Quality issues aside in it's manufacturing, the implications of knockoff like this for something that hasn't even dropped mass retail to the American market is a little disturbing.
This is why I'm waiting for them to hit retail.
1.So I don't grab a fake
2. So I can get them a lot cheaper.
thats not right, hasbro really has to do something abt this, its practically unprecedented
I guess this is what happens when you go for the cheapest factory and pay them peanuts.
the axe looks cool though
