RID Galvatron Knockoff

Postby ActionFigureOutpost » Fri Jan 11, 2013 1:08 pm

I came across a Galvatron RID but it isn't as detailed as the ones I see on this site and eBay. I'm wondering if he is a knockoff or an earlier version of the toy. You can see there is no white trim on the wings and the colors are a little off. Anyone have any idea??

I've never seen those colors on that figure, and the colors strike me as something you'd see on a KO, especially the wings.

Right, it looks cheap- I guess this will make knockoffs of anything.

It's indeed a knock-off and an incomplete one at that: it's missing the dragon arms and robot feet/dragon heads. Which means he can't transform into anything, most RiD Galvatron KO's eliminate all but the dragon modes.
