Knockoffs, bootlegs, unlisenced toys, fakes...whatever you want to call them, they're a peck of fun for people to collect. ;-) Though we don't wish to attempt a complete listing of fake TFs, we do want to give you a little flavor for what's out there. With that in-mind...
This section has two areas; the first is where I document the spot-on accurate TFs that have caused problems for the TF collector. Most times, these items are covered in a specific TF's section as well (ie, fake jet accessories on the jets page and fake Dinobots on the Dinobots page). This is more or less just a page to collect all these 'fakes' under one heading for easy reference. Used to be classics from the 80s, knockoffs in this catagory nowadays have to be expanded to include all the Chinese KOs that look real, but aren't (covered in the Chinese variant section of the site...)
The second section contains things that no one would ever confuse for legitimate TFs, but are cool nonetheless. Like Roadbots. ;-) Well, I like them...
We have a couple of guys working on a more comprehensive listing of fake TFs. In the meantime, please visit the Korean and Chinese section for more information. (That's where 99% of the knockoffs come from, anyways.)
Amazing how they are still causing us problems.
