This will probably come as no surprise to most, but CHMS is planning on using the Classics Rodimus KO to produce KO versions of Henkei Wildrider and Shattered Glass Rodimus. Staff member Mach came across the image of the two seen below. You will want to be extra cautious if you're in the market for authentic versions of either of these guys in the future, especially loose figures.

Seibertron does not endorse or condone these KO's, this post is purely informative.

KOToys has posted images of a Classics Rodimus test sample. According to the post products based on this mold will start rolling out late this month or early next month. As most of you are painfully aware this mold has two very sought after and highly priced repaints, Henkei Wildrider and Shattered Glass Rodimus. While we don't have confirmation they will knock off these two versions chances are good they will. If you're in the market for any version of the Classics Rodimus mold you may want to use extra caution when purchasing.

According to Rodimus99: "I was at K-mart tonight and they had some of those pre-made Easter Baskets. Some of which contained "bootleg" Transformers.
One of the sets was the Contructicons in G1 colors minus the logos, it appeared that the set had all of the parts to form
Devestator. The second set was the Protectobots, no logos, but appeared to be in original colors, exept for Hot Spot who was red. This set
also came with parts to form Defensor. The baskets sell for $9.99." While investigating this news at a local K-Mart here in Chicago, SEIBERTRON.com discovered one of the Easter Basket sets has a knock-off T-Wrecks (Beast Wars Megatron repaint) as the main toy. Thanks for the news Rodimus99!!!
