Remember the phrase, "Buyer Beware" and "If's too good to be true, it probable is". Well you could apply these to a lot of boxed Transformers currently selling on ebay, which are in fact knock offs Transformers made in china.
I like the reissues, as they better quality than the official ones over the years, but what I don't like are sellers who pretend these are vintage/originals in their descriptions.
In fact recently, sellers are aging these new boxes and selling them as old, from childhood, found in attic or just as MISB looks really good for it's age.
Did you know what 1 in 5 Optimus Prime's that sell on ebay are reissue?.
Does the seller tell you their description it's a knock off?
Current list of knock offs/reissues, all boxed unless stated.
Prowl (knock off does not have police print on side, see picture above)
Blue Streak (yes with the blue streak on the toy, not completely silver)
Shockwave (not boxed)
Frenzy & Laserbeak
Frenzy & Ratbat
Rumble & Ravage
Rumble & Ratbat
Reflector (yes included with replica white box!)
Remember always ask the buyer lots of questions and if in doubt, dont buy!
