With the recent scandals surrounding the Chinese toy companies using lead paint in their production, new testing to prevent such accidents from happening again has been introduced.

However, these new safeguards to protect us from such an error from happening again is going to come with a cost, and it is predicted that toy companies will be passing the buck onto the consumers.

Current estimates from analysts at MSNBC.com predict the costs of Chinese made toys to go up by about 10% for the consumer, starting next year. Even still, there is the possibility that it could be even more than that.

We will keep you posted going into the next year on whether or not Hasbro intends to raise the price of Transformers or not as soon as possible.

These are the sets:

Desert Attack:
Repainted Scorponok figure with 3 Soldiers

Final Stand:
Includes a Longarm Tow Truck figure with what appears to be a legless Robot Replicas Bumblebee.

With the release of the KO Vintage looking Generation 1 Mirage, one had to wonder if this might happen, especially with the recent E-Hobby BT Electro Disruptor Clear Rijie (Mirage), and the recent 2007 Botcon Transparent Blue Mirage Give Away Figure.

Here we have an auction for the GHOST version of G1 Mirage, although it is a KO version, so the quality is unknown, and likely to be poorer than the quite fragile vintage G1 version.

Here's some images for you too!





It looks so cool, I have bought one for my collection to complete the 'invisible' Mirage set!!

Deluxe Bonecrusher Toy Helps Illustrate Effectiveness of Buffalo MPCV

It seems that Transformers fans and collectors are not the only ones making use of the Hasbro Transformers toyline based on the characters from this summer's blockbuster live-action Transformers Movie.

Seibertron.com member PrinceJupiter has pointed out that CNN used the deluxe figure of the Decepticon Bonecrusher to illustrate the effectiveness of the Buffalo mine-clearing vehicle during a report on the armored military machine on "Robin & Company"

The anchors make no mention of the "model" being from the Transformers toyline, but they do use it to illustrate exactly how Bonecrusher's vehicle mode functions, and how it can save lives instead of destroying vehicles and transforming into a giant bus-destroying Decepticon as seen in the Transformers Movie.

First Gen gives us a breakdown and pictures of the higher quality NIKe Transformers KOs he bought from eBay--but we here at Seibertron offer a warning too--:

"...I gave the guy and offer of 35 USD for Megs and Prime, did I make a good deal? They are ko's but look at the pics below."







"Listing reads that megs box says convoy on it with no NIKE symbols or faction symbols. What do you guys and gals think, be brutally honest so that if I made a mistake I don't do it again?"


Scaleface also reports more eBay auctions for similar realistic looking KO items.

What does this mean? Well, Transformers fans can now buy these on a sensitive budget, and not break the bank, if they don't mind the Chinese versions.

Checking the pictures, they look very similar to the originals, so BUYER beware, don't get stuck paying the vintage price for the chinese KO versions. Be careful when purchasing these!

Of course, if you are purchasing one of the wonderful multi-colored ones from previous auctions, you already know that you have a KO product. Now it's just gotten a bit harder to tell with some of them.
