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".

If they're 6-7 inches, does that make them shorter than the official ones? I'd like to know ....

suntrom eh? i'm in 2 minds bout knock offs, since my financial sources are limited and my hobbies expensive i wouldn't mind them for my own collection.

when the packaging and ebay headers try to pass the off as genuine is where i guess most of us draw the line

Scaled down huh?

They'd be good for shits and giggles and maybe kitbash fodder, but once again, over priced. :roll:

I'm tired of this argument so I'm just gonna say, these are way to expensive.

More KO BS lovely. I think the collector community really has to watch the list is growing....at least they didn't copy the G1 packaging

The only thing I dislike about KOs is when they are being sold as legit TFs, and thus, expensive (as IF I was expecting them to make them for fans with limited resources! :BLACKEYE: )

Is interesting how they chose the Commemorative Series package for this set as opposed of going for the G1 pack. BTW, notice they used Classic Pretenders Starscream for Starscream's box art! About the misspelling, I am not surprised they didn't misspelled all the names!

And poor Skywarp got "warped" by bootleggers. Now THAT is a crime! :sad:

The "official" KO thread gets no love. I posted these there on Saturday, and no one noticed. :(

Then as now, I think it's pretty cool for Sunstorm to get a mass release, but I don't agree with the price. If KOs come at KO prices, I approve. KOs at legit prices, boo.
