I have considered getting the Shockwave's Lab set from Kapow while it's on sale.
....but... the non show accurate yellow detailing....
I'm in a bit of a pickle over it.
I saw an unusual oddity in my local Tesco this week.
A seemingly knockoff TF toy that seems to have made it all the way to legitimate store shelves.
It's a 30cm (ish) tall cheap plastic bumblebee, with no transformation or articulation, and very little in terms of paint apps, but seems to have been upscaled from a particularly well detailed figure as the actual sculpt seems very show accurate. I snapped a picture, but it's on my phone and I'm currently posting from work.
Has anybody else seen these? The box is generally very accurate to the prime RiD line's stuff, even down to having all the stuff regarding the TF collectors club on the bottom. But whereas hasbro's normal packaging would have an insert with more packing detail into which the twist ties connect, this simply had a plain cardboard box bottom with the twist ties visible on the outside of the box and just taped down. I didn't think to take note of whether they were plastic, or hasbro's usual paper twist ties, I can't remember.
Is this an official figure?
