warewullf's Collection

Recommended Posts

So I'm in my local Costcutter the other day (in Lisburn, Northern Ireland) and what do I see on the rack but knock-off G1 cassettes! Now, they are larger than the originals, no weapons and all plastic but still, I never had any of the cassettes so I was pretty happy to find them.

 

There are five in the collection. Versions of: Rumble, Ravage, Steeljaw, Ramhorn and Sqwalkbox (or Sqwalktalk, it's the bird part.)

 

I got the only two they had, which were, unfortunately, Ramhorn and Steeljaw ( I really wanted Ravage!)

 

Also on the rack were little Thunderwing figures! Well, they were hideous colours and a lot smaller. Also, it's just the pretender shell, but it transforms just like the original.

 

I'm trying to attach some pics.

 

(I've seen the cassttes on e-bay, but never the Thunderwing. These are the first knock-offs I've seen in years. Anyone else interested in these things?)

And here's the little Thunderwing knock-off. (Not a great pic, I admit.)

He comes with a sabre and rifle. You can't really tell, but he is an exact replica (except for size and colour).

I saw knock-off cassetes in the Uk a few years back, but they were butt-ugly. The ones you showed looked nice! dammit! Japan is a CRAP place to get knock-off as the local government HATES foreign imports, especially anything from Hong-Kong.

WOW! :eek I want those! The Decepticon fakes!

 

I have Beast Wars fakes (Rattrap, TM Stinkbomb, Terrorsaur and TM Spittor) which have a similar packaging. The quality is crap (not surprising) but the resemblance and colors are the same!

 

I should not advocate Knock-offs but I cannot afford the real ones! :tfsad
