Remember those Takara Toys"R"Us Japan exclusive campaign battle blades for DOTM Striker Optimus Prime? They were given away to customers who purchased 3,000 Yen in Transformers products at Toys"R"Us late last year, and command a premium price on the secondary market. If you're in the market for a pair of these and stumble across what seems like a really good deal make sure they're authentic and not knock offs. Two different groups are planning to produce knock off versions of these exclusive blades.

Authentic sets came packed with paperwork from Takara.

It's rare for Knock Offs to sneak their way into the world famous Seibertron.com galleries, but these four managed to get past the gallery bouncer for a photo shoot! Below you will find galleries for the recently produced KO versions of the rare and highly sought after Japanese cassettes Gurafi, Noizu, Dairu, and Zauru along with their combined forms of Decibel and Legout.

These figures are unofficial duplicates of the originals right down to the packaging and copyright stamps. The packaging is significantly lower res than authentic versions, though this could be difficult to discern in an on-line auction setting. If you plan on purchasing authentic versions of these figures use these galleries to educate yourself before buying.

Do you know the story "Journey to the West", with the character named "Monkey King", or sometimes Monkey? If not, it's what the Dragonball franchise is based on.
Oh and it has absolutely nothing to do with anything in this article. I just thought it would make a pretty cool intro, plus it's going to be funny, well at least to me, down the line.
So do you remember Kazi Brick? You know those weird Lego brick copies from China that had a line of of unlicensed Transformers brick sets? If not, here's an article we posted a little over a year ago!
Seibertron.com member Scaleface has, once again, directed our attention towards this company. The reason, Bumblebee King! Yes, this is a new set, based on you guessed it Bumblebee - Movie Bumblebee. While this line, just like Kre-O, copies the original Lego bricks, it is not a Kre-O KO, since as you can see from that old article up there, are much older. The special thing about this set is the amount of specially made parts oh and the fact that it actually TRANSFORMS, unlike other Transformers brick sets. It's also in a unique position, since well, it doesn't KO any official Transformers brick sets and it's unofficial.
There are of course images:

Xtransbots X1 Glider / Air Warrior Pictorial Review

Our very own El Duque has received his Xtransbots X1 Glider/Air Warrior and decided to share the following review:

I got my Xtransbots X1 Glider/Air Warrior yesterday and decided to take a few pictures for those who might be interested. First let's establish what this is. There's quite a bit of confusion about this guy because there are two third-party companies that have upsized and revised the JazaiToys Wheelie and Powerglide molds, Xtransbots (a CHMS project) and Superalloy. The Xtransbots figures are all plastic whereas the Superalloy figures feature diecast. From what I understand the Superalloy Powerglide is currently in production and should be available in the near future.

Onward to Glider! I'm not much of a packaging guy, but this is actually pretty nice. It's display minded for you MISB guys, made of decent quality cardboard, and features nice art. As you can see the front flap opens to reveal the figure in alt mode and features a hook and loop closure. Glider is secured in a clear plastic tray with a couple of twist-ties. The back teases their upcoming Galvatron homage, Tyrant. He comes with a small instruction sheet naturally, however you'll be working backwards since they take you from robot to alt mode. The instructions show a step were the face would be concealed in alt mode, but apparently that was scrapped. You also get a card that has his bio and specs.

As previously stated this is basically a knock off of the JazaiToys Powerglide. It's been upsized to roughly Deluxe class and ball joints have been added to improve articulation. He comes with three weapons, two hand guns and a knife. You can store one of the weapons in his chest cavity if you wish. He's spot on in both modes and displays well with the other Classics universe Minibots that have been upsized to Deluxe. He has decent articulation and stands easily thanks to his large flat feet. He's not without his flaws though, his arm joints are a little loose as are the rotational joints for his wings. He can still easily hold poses though, and if you really want to stiffen them up a quick coat of super glue will do the trick. The plastic quality could be a little better, my figure has a few stress marks from assembly, but nothing feels like it's going to break. Overall I'm happy with him, and he looks good on my Classics shelf.

The figure and his white repaint can be purchased at site sponsor Robotkingdom.

Articulation:

Head - rotates 360
Shoulders - ball joint
Elbows - ball joint
Hips - ball joint
Knees - hinge, plus 360 rotation
Ankles - ball joint

A review of the CHMS Xtransbots Glider has been posted YouKu, the Chinese equivalent of YouTube. Naturally the reviewer is speaking in Chinese, but we still get a nice look at the figure. This is an upsized and revised version of the JazaiToys Powerglide, not to be confused with the yet to be released SuperAlloy Powerglide Warrior, which is also an upsized version of JazaiToys Powerglide featuring a healthy dose of diecast.

The Transformers Galaxy Hong Kong Fans Group have uploaded an extensive image gallery of a prototype X-Transbots Glider (aka Jazai Toys Powerglide). The images show off the figure's articulation and mold modifications, mainly the inclusion of ball joints. We also get a nice size comparison with Generations Warpath.

These are iGear's unofficial versions of Skywarp, Starscream, and Thundercracker respectively using their modified knock-off Masterpiece Seeker mold. Each figure features a more cartoon accurate deco and a modification to the legs that integrates the hip kibble that is present on the official Masterpiece Seeker mold onto the lower legs.
