Seibertron.com News Crew member El Duque has found some new information on a possible KO, or third party recreation of Transformers Autobot mega cityformer Fortress Maximus. Heres the information he had to share:

"An interesting auction has surfaced on TaoBao that hints at a possible third-party version of Fortress Maximus, or perhaps the rumored KO. The auction is labeled G-02 Titan and as you can see the silhouetted image mirrored below (which is actually based on an official image) is almost certainly supposed to be Fort Max.

Description courtesy of Google Translate:

Earth version of the giant Ford G-02 Titan (Titans) scheduled

G1 Japanese version uses giant Ford mold making, material color and size reduction ratio of 100% realistic
No official stamp, in addition to a large sword that contains all the accessories other than the new sticker
Quality is not to say, I bought here, great sword friend Earth version of the idea in mind

This product will be available first quarter 2012

Offer Price: 2450 yuan

Deposit: $ 50

Scheduled to have a good price ~!

There also seems to be a predecessing add on being offered as teh G-01 Justice Sword, available in three different versions:

Powerglide's agent must be working overtime! It appears yet another third-party/KO version of the G1 mini-bot is in the works. In addition to Maketoys, iGear, and X Transbots, it looks as though well known KO producer CHMS is also throwing their hat in the ring. The image mirrored below is from their weibo micro-blog, and as you can see it looks strikingly similar to Jizai Toys Powerglide.

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.

Seibertron.com does not endorse or condone KO's, the purpose of this post is purely informative.
