G1 Computron KO Giftset In The Pipeline?

Transformers News: G1 Computron KO Giftset In The Pipeline?

A seller on iOffer.com has listed a brand new MISB Reissue Computron Giftset. The pictures on the auction look to be an old box. The description says that the seller has one new in box. This set hasn't been officially reissued, so it's safe to assume that another knock off of a G1 figure is being made. These knock offs aren't produced by Takara-Tomy or Hasbro. The quality usually isn't on par with an official reissue. Buyer beware when looking for a vintage Computron.

KOToys has posted two images of an upcoming KO set of the Generation 1 Stunticons. What is interesting about this set is the fact that it comes with Deadend and Wildride which are usually replaced with two Technobots in all of the KO Menasor releases, making this set here closer to the original and thus harder to distinguish from it.

We have been alerted that a seller from Hong Kong has been listing counterfeit Device Label figures on eBay. The good news: the counterfeits are somewhat blatant, with hints including strangely low prices, a "white" Ravage, and the fact that some contain anywhere from one to eight gigabytes, while legit ones only have two.

KO of Lucky Draw Gold Henkei Convoy has been produced

Some of the rarest of the rare Transformers finds have always been the ultra limited "Lucky Draw" figures.

One such figure has been the TV Magazine Gold Henkei Convoy, a gold chromed version of Classics/Henkei Optimus Prime. Until now, the chances of the average Transformers fan even finding one, let alone affording one have been slim.

That is until now, sort of. GenZhao of KOtoys.com has officially announced a series of KOLD figures (Knock Off Lucky Draw) that will begin with KOLD LE 01 GOLD OP. If all those abbreviations flustered you, the figure is actually a knock-off version of Gold Henkei Convoy and will be limited to 250 pieces.

Here are a couple of images of the figure. The rest can be found by clicking here.

We've received many reports from Transformers fans that new Knock-offs have surfaced on eBay. In addition to G1 Red Alert, Sideswipe, and a Protectorbots Gift Set which have already been released, a Stunticons Gift set is slated for release after the Chinese New Year.

While it may be tempting to buy such memorable characters in a nice. new throw-back package, none of us here at Seibertron.com recommend or endorse purchasing these figures. Products such as these not only violate copyright laws, but they also don't measure up to the same materials used and quality control protocols that the originals must go through. Please, do your research before buying what you believe to be a MISB G1 figure off of eBay and know the differences between real and fake.

Classic/Henkei Thundercracker and Skywarp are always sought after by Transformers collectors to complete the collection of seekers. These are also Botcon/Gentei exclusive figures, thus it is not unusual that they are expensive.
KO makers sense this business opportunity, though unethical, and created the KO Classic Skywarp & Thundercracker.
Actoys member sgxingx has posted the toy images of these KO at Actoys Forum.
