Powerglide's agent must be working overtime! It appears yet another third-party/KO version of the G1 mini-bot is in the works. In addition to Maketoys, iGear, and X Transbots, it looks as though well known KO producer CHMS is also throwing their hat in the ring. The image mirrored below is from their weibo micro-blog, and as you can see it looks strikingly similar to Jizai Toys Powerglide.

This will probably come as no surprise to most, but CHMS is planning on using the Classics Rodimus KO to produce KO versions of Henkei Wildrider and Shattered Glass Rodimus. Staff member Mach came across the image of the two seen below. You will want to be extra cautious if you're in the market for authentic versions of either of these guys in the future, especially loose figures.

KOToys has posted images of a Classics Rodimus test sample. According to the post products based on this mold will start rolling out late this month or early next month. As most of you are painfully aware this mold has two very sought after and highly priced repaints, Henkei Wildrider and Shattered Glass Rodimus. While we don't have confirmation they will knock off these two versions chances are good they will. If you're in the market for any version of the Classics Rodimus mold you may want to use extra caution when purchasing.

Every now and again, we at Seibertron.com are notified of an upcoming Knock Off of a rare or expensive figure, and want to take the time to warn our members to exercise some caution when purchasing vintage pieces.

This time, it appears that a new batch of highly authentic looking Cassettetrons are about to be released, sporting very accurate package reproductions. It appears that Japanese exclusive Dial and Zaur, as well as Raindance, Grand Slam, Beastbox, and Squawktalk have been reproduced. As always, we encourage you to do extensive research when preparing to purchase a rare or expensive figure to ensure you are purchasing what you believe you're purchasing.
