Oh, are the Titans Returns leaks up on there, too?

SAVE THE BUNNIES!!!!'m

@  MEDdMI : (29 April 2016 - 05:59 AM)

I know I said I like steely buns, but I didn't literally mean buns made out of steel!

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 April 2016 - 05:20 AM)

Alligators are really scary, because they can eat you. But you know what's even scarier than alligators? Flying alligators. With laser vision. Scariest environment imaginable.

Rook has a very firm butt. ;)

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 April 2016 - 02:20 AM)

But his butt is down there, and that's what I want to look at.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 April 2016 - 02:19 AM)

Rook's eyes are up here, Foffy.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 April 2016 - 02:14 AM)

Obviously. Rook couldn't very well win the swimsuit competition while he was stuck being a leg, now could he?

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 April 2016 - 02:12 AM)

....of joy, because he's no longer stuck holding up a heavy combiner and can now go do his own thing?

@  Foffy the Sheep : (29 April 2016 - 02:09 AM)

You hear that? That's the sound of Rook crying bitter, bitter tears.

@  Telly : (29 April 2016 - 12:58 AM)

@  Dracula : (28 April 2016 - 09:09 AM)

All I can say is their preorder and invoice system seems to work fine.

@  Dracula : (28 April 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Oddly I just placed an order with them this week. But I haven't received the item (Victorion) yet, so I can't really give you a review

@  zephyrX9 : (27 April 2016 - 11:46 PM)

my black and white world view has been shattered into so many tiny pieces now. like little packing peanuts tossed into a river my mind is scattered. AND ITS ALL YOUR FAULT!

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 April 2016 - 04:38 PM)

Don't say it Foffy. Don't say it...

@  Ms Virion : (27 April 2016 - 04:35 PM)

I can attest to that. I've seen his recording equipment.

@  Foffy the Sheep : (27 April 2016 - 04:30 PM)

THE DOCTOR WAS ONE OF THE VOICES

@  Telly : (27 April 2016 - 04:30 PM)

He's on HTS now.

@  Smokey : (27 April 2016 - 03:28 PM)

I got the Deluxe from Japan. I lost patience waiting for Hasbro to release him.

@  Lightbright : (27 April 2016 - 02:40 PM)

It's an evolution revolution!

@  Kalidor : (27 April 2016 - 01:32 PM)

I enjoyed Revolution. Was a good show.

Like it says in the topic: is it still possible to buy a Henkei Starscream without just having to hope you haven't dropped a lot of money on the crappy knockoff? s there any way to tell from the packaging? I've been burned once on this, because I didn't realize the KO was available in normal Starscream colors. Should I just assume they're all fakes?

As I understand it, the KO doesn't have a TakaraTomy logo on the upper right hand side, and lacks the embossed Transformers logo on the bubble.

Ah, that only applies to the second release of the KO. :/

I didn't think they KO'ed Henkei Starscream, but they must have...

The real Henkei Starscream is very pretty, probably my favorite release of the Seeker mold, it's just very good.

Oh, once you open him it's completely obvious. Aside from the known tell in the shoulder sculpt, there are quality differences: torso won't quite close, wings are floppy, feels cheap. None of that is helpful when you're buying stuff on the internet.

Spectre, thanks for the helpful info. I may just go with the Universe toy.

Not to restart an extremely tired argument, but fans put off purchasing a legit item because of the abundance of KO's of said item = not good for the health of the collector base, surely?

TF's seem to have so many more current and 'accurate' bootlegs than a lot of other lines I collect.

It's great it has that level of appeal, but well, people get frustrated if they think they're buying the real deal, and get a KO instead. Yeah they can get re-imbursed, but it's still off-putting for the next time you go to buy online.

I know I would be hesitant to buy any of the Henkei Seekers without thorough investigation or trusting the dealer from previous experience.

What about Henkei Megatron? Are there issues of legitimacy with those as well?

KO's I believe are limited to every iteration of the Henkei/Gentei Seekers, Mirage (specifically the BotCon, Clear Gentei, Fracture, Dragstrip, and the Henkei), Classics Voyager Optimus (specifically SG Optimus, Convoy Black, Crystal Convoy), Classics Rodimus (specifically Wildrider and SG Rodimus), and Universe Sideswipe.

I haven't heard of any KO's of Voyager Megatron or anyone else (I may be forgetting someone though).

There are Voyager Megatron KOs, but they aren't identical to any release. They have odd colors, and in some cases, minor remolds.

There are non-replica KOs of the Voyager Classic Megatron mold, but no replica KOs of it. The non-replica KOs are completely original decos and packaging. Some add light and sound! Still, impossible to mistake for the HasTak item.

I was completely unaware of the Mirage-mold KOs until I sold my Dragstrip and two different bidders emailed me to make sure he was legit. I had to go check a comparison thread at TFW just to be sure I hadn't been ripped off when I bought him.

I have no real objection to crazypants knockoffs like those Megatrons. The orange one looks outstanding.
