It looks like it's pretty well made. I normally don't go for KO's, but I want a Voyager-sized DOTM OP Trailer and if my only other option is the $100+ Takara variant, I may compromise for this if the price is right.

Also, you said that it was available now. So....where? :-?

Oh, and michael....that made NO sense.

First off, what's wrong with buying 3rd party if they make a good product? Secondly, there's absolutely nothing wrong with buying a KO if the quality is just as good as its legit counterpart. And since I don't see Hasbro making us a Voyager-sized trailer for here in the states, and most people would rather not spend 100 bucks for the Takara version, this is a pretty reasonable substitute. The way I see it, it's Hasbro's loss for not delivering on something the FANS want. I don't see how either of these makes us FANS any less such. But nice try, here's your cookie.

This is absurdly ridiculous... 'Onoez! Beware of KO of a big plastic box on wheels!'

Next.

My main point is any one can buy whatever they want ,i just HATE bootleggers making money on something some one else owns ."FANS" :BANG_HEAD: give ALL this HATE toward HASBRO ,TAKARA,and Tomy ,saying they charge too much ,and that there figures are crap ,but are in love with this 3 party stuff .There not the real deal ,never will be .How would you feel if you wrote a song ,or story ,but did not want it out for your reason ,but i take it ,put my name on it and made money off of your art .Then when you do want to release it no one wants to buy it cause they already have it . :BOT: :BOT: EVER WONDER Why HASBRO/TOMY won't do a Masterpiece Devastator ,maybe cause no one would buy it since they already spent $600 :ic$: ,on a 3rd party RIP OFF . :KREMZEEK:

Michael, I think you're just thinking way too much into this. While I'm not going to argue against what you said because I can see where you're coming from with it, 3rd Parties are not the enemies. Where else would we get great add-ons like the City Commander and Protector trailer/armor sets? You'd never see something like that come from Hasbro. And then that upcoming trailer for RTS G2 Optimus Prime. Hasbro/Takara wouldn't give us one of those, either.

Mikey boy, you might wanna touch up your spelling and grammar skills before trying make a somewhat coherent point, no matter HOW WRONG.

And really, anyone that doesn't buy from HasTak isn't a "FAN"? Bro, I think you need to lighten up. Most 3rd party stuff is using original designs and names, so it's not violating copyright. Also, I own quite a bit of bootleg TF's that are, in quality, indistinguishable from the HasTak original.

Oooooor it could be because Masterpiece is a niche market, and Hasbro has decided there isn't any profit to be made there.

If a third-party is able to cater to those of us that do want a particular toy, and they can do so legally, I really don't see the problem.

That said, this trailer is probably in violation of HasTak's copyrights.

Please keep it civil here. One more fist gets thrown and warnings will ensue.

Do you even know what you're talking about? Third parties put their heart and soul into engineering a fantastic combiner that's quality. It's far from ever being close to a rip off. You need to start doing research before you start throwing everything under the same tag.

agreed.

I think certain members exist here to flame bait & try their hardest to insult other members here. all in desperate attempts to ruin threads with their flame baiting rude comments.

That's a Deluxe variant, Hasbro's version of the Prime w/trailer from Takara's "Chronicles" set.

I am not loyal to any particular toy company.

I am loyal to the Transformers legacy. (Meaning it’s characters in their purest unaltered form)

If Hasbro/Takara wants to keep a character on the shelf for 20 years and Joe Blow wants to resurrect it by any means necessary, then send me Joe Blow’s paypal address.

If Hasbro/Takara charge an arm and a leg but Bugs Bunny makes an affordable quality KO, Then what’s up doc ???

You defend Hasbro as being the victims of theft, but what about the jobs Hasbro has stolen from the US economy by outsourcing they’re factories to China ???

Are you implying that only corporate interests should be allowed to save a lot of money through cheap labor ??? Why not fans too ???

I agree with this & have also been saying similar words for years now.

If hasbro lacks a clue,then they should step aside & allow those 3rd party companies who have a clue to create the TF toys fans really want.

Hasbro has had over a decade to give us G-1 Updated new mold combiners with poseability. instead we get four plus different construction combiners that look nothing like 1985 devestator.

Hasbro has had over a decade to give fans a updated G-1 styled poseable sixshot & galvatron. instead we get a energon recolor of shockblast in mustard yellow colors called Sixshot. then we get all those NOT-Galvatron's that lack the 1986 galvatron laser canon alt mode.

HOW long must fans wait for extremly accurate updated poseable toy versions based off all the 1980's TF toys/Media they love?? fans aren't getting any younger. most veteran TF fans are over 30 years of age. the more time passess,the closer we get to heaven's gate.

We might as well buy & enjoy the 3rd party TF toys while were still younger enough & healthier to enjoy them. rather than waiting 10+more years for hasbro to create them & being too old to fully enjoy these toys.

It's Hasbro fault & they need to be taught a lesson by these 3rd party TF toy companies.

All hasbro wants to create these days is literally 20 different new mold bumblebee toys per year.

Hasbro refuses to give us futeristic alt modes in classics because they claim this lines theme is all about realistic earth based alt modes the kids can identify with. this was the reason hasbro gave attendees at various botcons. when asked why no galvatron with a laser canon alt mode. and why no shockwave with a space laser gun alt mode.

I love & support these 3rd party TF toy companies for the following reason: 1-When hasbro claims it's impossible to re-create certain updated G-1 toys. these 3rd party TF toy companies say: "YES WE CAN,NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR US TO CREATE.
