Metamorphs? Brestforce? No Decepticon symbols. Dodgy looking head.

Not a very attractive item to buy... I was tempted until I actually saw it.

Damn, has Liokaiser been KOed? I didn't realise that was something to watch out for with these figures.

Wrong. Taiwan legitimately re-released many Victory toys.

I have a MIB Taiwanese LioKaiser. It's beautiful.

Does your Taiwanese LioKaiser have Decepticon symbols?

The toy in the auction you linked to is described as KO here, notably the animal sticker on the tank where the Con symbol should be, and the red knee stickers on the black buggy show it to be not the original figures.

That set of 'reissue' toys was sold in a box set, where as the Taiwan release wasn't according to highendtfs.com

The ebay link will eventually expire, but the other links posted up are worth noting for future reference, if anyone later looks for or finds a Liokaiser.
