    You'd used so much of that smiley there & I feel real bad adding another one more. Oh well..I'll use a BIGGER one. :lolol 

    Now back to topic. WHY would anyone bother buying KO pieces when you can jolly well afford the REAL stuffs when these starts going on clearance in about 6-9 months time? :sly: 

    KOs ain't really that cheap nowadays.

    When I first glanced at the tumbnail I thought "Oh hey, Target must be doing a G1 Soundwave deco...Oh no, wait..." lol

    The interchangeable head thing is rather odd.

    "MAKE MOAR, LAZY CHILDRENS, OR I SHALL FEAST UPON YOUR SOFT FLESH"


    I remember spotting a bunch of cheap knockoffs in the local flea market here in Tallahassee, specifically a fast action battler Starscream renamed "LATENT SPIDER."

    STARSCREAM IS NOT A SPIDER WHAT THE FUCK

    RATENT SPIDELUUUUUUU!

    He was, however, a wasp for a day.

    KO makers should just stick to knocking off GOOD toys and not this ROTF garbage.

    i remember the old days when my parents would buy me knock offs of transformers or dragon ball z without realizing, and they would just be the most random looking things.

    This is what happens when people steal the toys from the factories.

    It gets into the wrongs hands, and this is the outcome

    heh the KO makers know much money the toys from TF1 made and have seen the hyper for TF2 so thereis no way they are gonna miss out on potential profits from TF2

    Come to Malaysia, man. Original Deluxe TFs cost 55 bucks our money, 110 bucks (our money) for Voyagers and 200+ for Leaders. That's why us Malaysians go for the KOs, cuz a typical Voyager class KO costs 20 bucks our money.

    -----

    I'm looking forward to a Deluxe Knockout. Even if the colour is bad, but the joints are reasonably tight, I'll just recolour and remodify it :D

    You can never have too much blue for Soundwave.


    Those two archrivals sharing the same mold? Blasphemy <_<

    Oh, is the knockoff Soundwave the same size as the original?

    ROTF Soundwave looks like a good toy, actually.

    Yep. China, Malaysia and a lot of other countries may not be major markets for Hasbro/Takara, but these places get exposed to the Transformers hype and media, and thus have demand. But even if the original toys are put on sale, it doesn't necessarily correlate that the price will go down a great deal.

    That's where the KO makers come in - they produce mainly for domestic consumption, but if someone offers to export their knockoffs, they aren't going to turn away such an opportunity.
