It seems as though the sudden influx of lower quality Knock Off G1 Toys is still going strong, with two more Knock Off's spotted on Ebay.

These latest Knock Off's are:
Powerglide and
Cosmos.

Luckily it will be very easy to tell true G1 Cosmos from this Knock Off variety, as the Knock Off labels Cosmos as a "Spase Ship".

But be warned, unlike some Knock Off's that are listed as Knock Off's both Cosmos and Powerglide are being listed as "Re-issues".

It seems that the Knock Offs are coming thick and fast, just in time for the holiday season.

Scaled down KO versions of most of the G1 Seekers and Coneheads have been spotted on ebay:
Thundercracker
Ramjet
Thrust
Dirge
Starscream and
Sunstorm.

Once again Skywarp gets no love.

These figures stand at about 4-5 inches tall in robot mode, and apparently do contain small amounts of die-cast metal.

So keep an eye out, for these KO's like many before them will more than likely be listed as "vintage Transformers".

Our own bookofjunon has reported the following information:

"As per Spencer at AgesThreeandUp.com,

:
So I just got some good/bad news this evening, depending on how much of a supporter you are.

As many know, competition in China is fierce for KO companies and to compete against eachother is commonplace. I have receintly been contacted by a different company than the first who is also doing KOs of G1 figures. Their first release - METROPLEX! I am told this is done is high quality and will come in a G1 style of box with styrofoam insert, instructions, catalogue and sticker sheets. I don't know what they will have for copyrites, this will be found out when they come in stock. The retail on this figure will be $124.99 US which I find is much more reasonable than $80 for a Dinobot considering the size and complexity of the figure. (a good portion of the cost is in the shipping as well)

We are going to be bringing in a limmited number of these to try out and can be preordered from our site at $109.99, saving $15 on this trial run. These will be shipping to us early to mid December so we hope to have these all out for the Holidays.

Seibertron Member Zeds has some useful information for Transformers Fans regarding upcoming Knock off re-productions of Dinobots Slag and Sludge:

I have just been informed from my friend in HK that G1 Dinobot Slag and Sludge are the next in line to be reproduced using G1 US packaging and documentation hot on the heels of Mirage and Wheeljack and Swoop and OP earlier in the year and others in years past (cassettes and minibots).

Please be weary of all MISB auctions for G1 Us boxed Slag and Sludge in the near future on eBay. Please ask for images of the tape seals to confirm if it is a true G1 figure. The main difference will be possible yellowing of the tape on the true G1 box and the fact that the G1 tape was not as wide as the tape used on these repros to seal the flaps. Another possible difference might be a glossier look on the repro box vs the G1 box. Other than that these are very good quality repros that may fool you in an auction if it is not stated by the seller.


So please be wary if you are hunting for these figures, if something seems too good to be true, it more than likely is.

Another 'Ghost Mirage' Transformers Item-- KO G1 Auction

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!!

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.

A new auction has come to our attention, thanks to Seibertron.com member Scaleface.

Apparently the newly released Nike "Shoe-formers" have already ended up at a Chinese knockoff factory and are being produced in some "interesting" colors.
