    Yes, but I want the ko g1 boxes as well as the figure. Hasbro/ takara did a great job releasing those. I just wished they did it the encore g1 box style. If they did then I would not buy these ko sets. Im a g1 fan who wants the g1 style boxes too. :drool:  Thats the only way I would buy them to remind me of the item I got, or wished I had as a kid.

    So, is this the first time anyone else has seen a knock off of a complete Computron, or just me, and not with the mix and match of other limbs?

    pretty sure this is a scam, never heard word one of a computron set. Its entirely possible, but the photos are highly suspect.

    I recently bought a computron gift set off a seller who lives in hong kong. the set is still in transit & will arrive in about 4+weeks. I'll let everyone know how decent the set is & write up a review for all interested in this KO Computron gift set.

    I very much doubt they made the KO with an "aged" box if that's what's being insinuated here.

    I liked those Mirages in Red and black and clear that were made or the diaclone colour Swoop those were fun.

    I'd probably have some interest in G1 repros that were different colours - for example there's a fake Predaking that is part white - if it was all white I'd definitely have bought it.

    If someone wants to make a Metro-Titan and Takara can't be bothered I'm not going to complain.

    It must have been fake. TF News sites make mistakes sometimes.

    Ioffer sucks for sellers, but great for buyers! Anyone who wants to sell on ioffer goodluck. I use it for all my g1 reissues. Its the best place to get all of the g1 reissues for a reasonable price. Computron reissue is not out yet, but I cant wait to get that htf g1 set.
