This is the third party? What happened to the first and second? And when's the fourth? What the hell is going on!

I'd kinda rather they stayed in the same forum but that's just laziness talking. :lol: I can understand the desire for separation.

I don't know why you put together the 2 (KO & 3th party)...or it's because some small masterpieces around?...

You should see it like this:
- Official toys and merchandise, endorsed or licensed by Hasbro and TakaraTomy
- Unlicensed merchandise, fakes (KO's and bootlegs)

I guess a friend of a friend of a Hasbro executive got upset that their figures were being overshadowed on blogs.

a step further:
1st Party, Items direct from Hasbro and TakaraTomy.
2nd Party, Items produced by other companies under license by HasTak. Everything from party napkins to IDW comics.
3rd Party, Items produced by companies not under license to do so, to compliment 1st/2nd party items.
KO, Items directly copied from 1st/2nd Party items without license in direct violation of standing copyrights.

Can we get that giant Transformers Knock Offs thread from the Transformers Toy forum here pl0x? Because it belongs here to be honest. And it would up the user traffic in this area. If you're worried about people from Toys not finding it just leave a shadow when you move it.

Great thread, thanks all...

I periodically go through phases where I can't throw the dough @ the real thing, so I go dippin' into the world of the the KO. I hunt for really good likenesses, and the exact opposite. I've just joined the forums, and I'll throw a pic of this up ASAP, but I just snagged a "grail" KO item. It's a 1x scaled-down Liokaiser, correct head/component colors. I was a little bummed 'cause they replaced the hellbat with a tank vehicle(looks like a tiny doubledealer, and I don't know who he's a KO of). But, for a KO, it's mighty sweet.
The other drawback is this: because of the blue tank-figure not being part of the original concept, his "arm" mode is 1/2 inch shorter than the "Guyhawk" arm.
Thanks again for this thread...

I just want to say that if it wasn't for 3rd partys like Fansproject/iGear, I wouldn't have much to look foward to regarding toy releases & figures I actually want to own. So... with that line of reasoning, I think this subforum is a good idea :BOT:

Just wanted to say thanks to the Staff member who moved the KO thread to this subforum.
