Buyer Beware: Knock Off MP Prime and more

Postby i_amtrunks » Tue Feb 12, 2008 7:04 pm

Seibertron's own Scaleface has come across a large allotment of "new" Knock Off (or KO) figures.

These figures stretch from the Classics line to the Movie and beyond, there is now even a Masterpiece Prime Knock Off.

Seibertron.com does not endorse the production, selling or trading of Knock Off Transformers, and as such will not be posting links to where these figures may be purchased.

Instead, please use the Images below to ensure that you do not accidentally purchase a KO figure, believing it to be the real deal. And always remember, if a deal seems too good to be true, it most probably is.

KO Transformers Movie Leader Class Optimus Prime


KO Transformers Movie Voyager Blackout (In Artic and Desert Camo)


KO Transformers Movie Voyager Ratchet


KO Transformers Movie Simplified Supreme Bumblebee


KO Classics Deluxe Astrotrain


KO Titanium Soundwave


KO Alternator Jazz


KO Masterpiece Prime

Awesomesauce; Use it, you know you want to.

Anyone who buys the Titanium Soundwave knockoff thinking it's the real thing needs to be checked for colorblindness. It's so funky it's cool. I think it's the second 6 inch titanium knockoff to be made, they did a Thundercracker mold knockoff in different colors before.

No need for me to worry, I have most of these and the ones I don't have I don't want. It's pretty easy to tell a KO from the real thing as long as it's in package but it's good to have warnings like these, so thanks for the info Scaleface.

The actually changed the deco on Rescue Ratchet so he said "SUPER & ROBOT" on the vehicle instead of "Ambulance"! The robot mode of the knockoff has the logo for the Baltimore Ravens on his shoulders instead of red crosses! I guess they use what they have to make these toys, but this is really ODD.

I like the deco's on the KO Blackouts. Might have to look into acquiring one or two if they are dirt cheap.

It's unbelievable... Isn't this ilegal? I mean... these are current products. I'm starting to get sick of KOs... Vintage KOs (not pretending to pass like the real thing) are understandable if we're talking about ones not being reissued (e.g. G1 Devastator), otherwise I don't understand how they are able to get away with this. :shock:

So will this stance be reflected in the board rules thread in GD or does this fall under the whole "no posting of copyrighted material" category?

And should we then start reporting anyone who posts links to auctions of said KO's even though they might just be alerting people and warning them like this thread?

So what impact does this new "Seibertron does not condone knockoffs" policy have on the 90+ page knockoff thread? Do we knock that on the head, or can we carry on with the understanding that we're posting things people MUSTN'T buy?

Also, I find it amusing that all these Movie knockoffs come out at the same time people are complaining about too many Movie toys and repaints. Wonder how well the KOs will sell?

That Titanium Soundwave KO really looks ugly....
Classics Astrotrain KO looks pretty real though, compared to the other KOs.
