All these collectors complaining about fakes, cry me a river. They are toys. Real or bootleg, they are circa 2008-2010. Henkei figures were intended for display, not worship. These people treat their originals like if they were 200 year old Civil War relics. Get over it and just and bite the bullet. Be happy for the next Transformers fan who can enjoy them as you have. I own the originals and I support KO toys.
Actually I do like to display them, I even still 'play' with them from time to time. I don't lock them away in a hermetically sealed bubble devoid of any contact for fear that it may devalue them in some way.
The real issue I have with the KO's is often the quality is genetically inferior when compared to the originals. I have bought several Ko's, and I'm always left disappointed. Now, they're not exactly cheap either, I've found, in particular some of the G1 KO's to be quite expensive.
My theory is, why pay money for something that I know is inferior, which will inevitably break, and I don't get much enjoyment from seeing them sitting in the bottom of a bin either, so to me that really is a waste of money in my opinion.
