Anyone use IOFFER.com?

I am new to the site, and I can't help but be very impressed with the number of TF's (of all lines) they have; and at the prices they have them for.

What's the catch?

Used them once or twice without any problems but be aware that a lot of what they sell are KO's.

Are KOs the same as Reissues?

for example:

and:
http://www.ioffer.com/i/transformers-g1 ... w-77557571

They often use the word reissue instead of Knock Off. It sounds better but that is a knock off.

In the case of Mirage, it has never officially been reissued as the mold is reportedly broke or lost.

ok, so wait a sec....these are totally different from the "Commemorative" ones then?

What can I expect with KO/Reissues?

They are different as they are not made by Hasbro or Takara but a chinese KO company reverse engineering the molds. Can't comment on what to expect.

Commemorative/encore are made by Hasbro or Takara using the original toy molds.

My personal opinion is to avoid ioffer. had nothing but trouble from them. Wife lost 1,000 when trying to buy from that site. they shipped her an empty box.
