As many of you know a knock off G1 Scorponok has hit the market, and site sponsor Robotkingdom has provided a quick write up and some comparison images. If you're in the market for a authentic G1 Scorponok you might want to take the time to look over the information below.

Dear customers,

Here are some comparison Photos of the KO Scorpronok.

Without checking the product in personal, it may be difficult to distinguish the difference between original G1 and KO.

Below listed some points that might help to recognize their difference.

1. KO Overall material is a little bit gross while original features plain plastic. KO version material is more like a normal plastic toy material...

2. KO features screw on both sides of the head while original feature pin.

3. KO have Scorpion legs use screws while the original one use pin.

4. Sculpture on Original item is clearer.

5. The eye sculpture of Headrobot is difference.

6. Sculpture on the cannon is different.

7. The sculpture on KO Chromed parts are damaged.

8. Visible bubble on the KO version chest and hip paint job.

Hope these informations are helpful and don’t mistakenly buy KO version as authentic one. Enjoy!

Please email to info@robotkingdom.com for further enquiry.

Discovered recently on Actoys.net, the counterfeiters are at it again. Knock Off Masterpiece 12 Lambor's are aparently ready for distribution. These unliscensed reproductions will likely suffer in both quality and precision. If you are still in the market for MP 12 Lambor/Sideswipe, you may consider sticking to reputable dealers such as our site sponsors or other well established online retailers. The accuracy of this particular KO seems quite high and with a convincing package, it will be tough to distinguish the difference. We will post any noticeable differences as soon as they can be identified to help ensure you are getting the real McCoy.

Additionally, Masterpiece 10 Optimus Prime and MP 13 Soundwave's may also be under development. If you see a price that is too good to be true...

Buyer Beware!  KO Masterpiece 12 Lambor/Sideswipe!

Buyer Beware: Counterfeit G1 Scorponok Being Released This Summer

It's not unreasonable to hold hope that with the recent release of Encore Fortress Maximus, that his rival Scorponok will also see a release.

However it seems that other, less scrupulous parties seem to be getting one to market sooner if Toymoda is to be believed. In addition to a healthy stock of Transformers-related items, Toymoda also has several knockoff replications of other G1 figures, such as Cyclonus, Shockwave and a Computron giftset. Scorponok has recently been added to its system with a release date of July.

Seibertron.com will pass on more information as more information becomes available.

Knock Off Human Alliance? Apparently so.

This auction on eBay has been selling knock off Human Alliance Barricade figures, and it seems there are multiple sellers doing it.
They all claim to be knock offs, and none try to hide it. The quality is in question since no one seems to have one in hand, but based on appearances alone, this is an exact 1:1 duplication of the real figure.

Be careful when buying, don't get ripped off by a "good" deal. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. With Human Alliance prices going for tidy sums on eBay, a price below $50.00 for such a figure should be an instant red flag.

It looks like CHMS is working on a set of battle hooks for Transformers ROTF/DOTM Leader Class Optimus Prime. As you can see in the prototype image mirrored from their weibo page below the hooks are similar in fashion to Takara's campaign battle blades (which were recently knocked off) for DOTM Leader Class Striker Optimus Prime.

Remember those Takara Toys"R"Us Japan exclusive campaign battle blades for DOTM Striker Optimus Prime? They were given away to customers who purchased 3,000 Yen in Transformers products at Toys"R"Us late last year, and command a premium price on the secondary market. If you're in the market for a pair of these and stumble across what seems like a really good deal make sure they're authentic and not knock offs. Two different groups are planning to produce knock off versions of these exclusive blades.

Authentic sets came packed with paperwork from Takara.

It's rare for Knock Offs to sneak their way into the world famous Seibertron.com galleries, but these four managed to get past the gallery bouncer for a photo shoot! Below you will find galleries for the recently produced KO versions of the rare and highly sought after Japanese cassettes Gurafi, Noizu, Dairu, and Zauru along with their combined forms of Decibel and Legout.

These figures are unofficial duplicates of the originals right down to the packaging and copyright stamps. The packaging is significantly lower res than authentic versions, though this could be difficult to discern in an on-line auction setting. If you plan on purchasing authentic versions of these figures use these galleries to educate yourself before buying.

Do you know the story "Journey to the West", with the character named "Monkey King", or sometimes Monkey? If not, it's what the Dragonball franchise is based on.
Oh and it has absolutely nothing to do with anything in this article. I just thought it would make a pretty cool intro, plus it's going to be funny, well at least to me, down the line.
So do you remember Kazi Brick? You know those weird Lego brick copies from China that had a line of of unlicensed Transformers brick sets? If not, here's an article we posted a little over a year ago!
Seibertron.com member Scaleface has, once again, directed our attention towards this company. The reason, Bumblebee King! Yes, this is a new set, based on you guessed it Bumblebee - Movie Bumblebee. While this line, just like Kre-O, copies the original Lego bricks, it is not a Kre-O KO, since as you can see from that old article up there, are much older. The special thing about this set is the amount of specially made parts oh and the fact that it actually TRANSFORMS, unlike other Transformers brick sets. It's also in a unique position, since well, it doesn't KO any official Transformers brick sets and it's unofficial.
There are of course images:
