    I've enjoyed all Benscollectables videos, but I have never seen a negative review from him. Does he ever throw up red flags when he finds low quality stuff? Was just wondering if his reviews were also valuable in that regard.

    Eh, that's a really low price, and it raises some questions as to whether the posting is for one figure rather than all 5. Even the WJ KOs for Warbotron go for about 60 each, so I don't think I would go for that listing.

    OK, let's break this down by mold:
    Wheeljack: Structure is good. Joints good. Tends to have sloppy paint, and the pistol doesn't tab underneath in vehicle mode (might be fixable). Also needs a pin added to the shoulder cannon that they left out to fix the floppiness.

    Prowl/Bluestreak: Technically we don't have Bluestreak in hand yet to my knowledge, but it's the same mold as Streak. The only complaints/differences I've seen is that the face sculpt is a little soft. Colors and everything else seem spot-on.

    Bumblebee: The only thing I've noticed is there tends to be a thumbprint on top where they handles still wet paint. At least I've seen somebody else report it, and mine had it too. And my exosuit was a useless mess, but I didn't have high hopes for it anyway. No issues with mold that I'm aware of.

    Box differences you'll have to check with someone else. But generally lighter cardboard on the knockoffs and wheeljack and bumblebee straight up say Takasa Tony on them.

    Yeh I was wondering if it was too good to be true
    Thanks for the reply ,do the Ko also have tony instead of tomy printed on them and finally I know the tiger track Ko comes with pile drivers but is the face the same as the other Lambo ko's of having square eyes ?
