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:
