    Arrow Is this a Knock Off? (post here for help)

    For those buying Transformers toys and aren't sure if it is a fake or legit figure...

    1st - check out the archive links here for known Knock Offs & how to spot them,

    2nd - have a quick look at the topic titles in our Knock Off section to see if an alert has recently been posted about it,

    3rd - post here with your query if the first two options didn't help you out, as someone here may know or will direct you to somewhere that can help.


    BE AWARE - Knock Offs are not permitted on Ebay, even if the seller says that it is (or uses the word "Reissue" on something that was not officially reissued). If you fall victim to an ebay sale that was deceptive, you can open up a dispute, as it would be "not receiving an item as described".
    If the item was clearly listed as being a Knock Off, it may be more difficult to open a dispute, so contact the seller first to resolve the problem before escalating it.

    Default re-issue metroplex

    hey guys i bought one of these
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Transformers...item2ebcf7e472

    a while ago and am a bit paranoid it may be a KO are there any features i can look for to distinguish it? i found a lot of info on the free poster box variant KO but nothing for this box style though?

    That's Encore Metroplex. It is a legit reissue.

    I'd say the first two are legit, they look very like the takara versions but photo too small for me! Heh maybe $100 each? The wheeljack just looks like ths standard old wheeljack $250-$300 if complete?

    Those photos are way too small to tell. But here are some pics of the legits for comparison:

    Yeah. i just dragged and dropped the thumbnails. sorry bout that. Either way they cost too much and i need to tighten my belt.. so they're not for me..this time.
    it's hard to believe that the red wheeljack is so much more than the other.
    but thats just how it is i guess

    That's because the Red wheeljack was more scarce in production, the green version is the common one so is a bit cheaper - the ones in your pics are diaclone versions - that wheeljack even has it's little driver in there - those would be pricy items

    Was there ever a KO jetfire/Grimlock 2 pack? Cause this seems like a really good deal but I'm forever the skeptic.
