More Knock-off goodies are heading our way from kotoys.com. This time a revamped Lucky Draw Seeker from the KOLD line will be available in gold and silver. The colors are meant to match the recent Lucky Draw Animated Prime, Megatron, and Bumblebee figures released by TakaraTomy. These are only prototypes of the figures coming out and the run is expected to cap out around 1000 figures. To learn more and see a ton of photos, visit our favorite site KOtoys.com.

Kold Klear Seeker mold coming from the world of KO Toys

Kold Klear Seeker mold

KOtoys.com has raised the ante with a new line of their unashamedly knock-off toys

It looks like KOtoys is still up to ‘no good’ with this new completely clear version of the classics seeker mold.  I am really excited to get ahold of these unique knock-offs and I hope the quality is as good as I am expecting.  So far, nothing Kold has gotten out into the wild but it should all happen soon enough. Check out the gold version of the seeker posted early.

More KOLD figures on the way?

Knock-off Bootelg Generation 1 Gold Metroplex

We've finally found it, the lost city of gold!!

I came across this image today. This should strike fear and loathing in the bottom of your soul, or else it ought to make you giggle with glee.

This image comes right off the trail of KOtoys.com’s announcement that they will be releasing a run of what they are calling KOLD Optimus Primes (KOLD standing for Knock-Off Lucky Draw).  These are meant to give the average collector the chance of  attaining the essentially unattainable, or at least something close.  The makers of this line of bootleg were courtious enough to make some obvious changes including the removal of the copyright stamp, different sized autobot symbols, and different colors of plastic compared to the $1000 originals.

So what is going on here?  Well that depends on which side of the fence you are on.  If you’ve spent $1000’s on getting legitimate Lucky Draw figures, you might be a bit peeved.  Your exclusivity is gone!  The corner stone of your collection is now readily available to anyone.  This is not necessarily true, since as stated above, there are descernable differences from the real thing.  Is your toy still worth over $1000?  Possibly not though, because even reissues of old toys bring down the value of the originals.  Look at Stepper for instance…

It’s currently unknown by this blogger who made the gold chrome G1 Metroplex, but it is most likely only the first of many to come.  Who wouldn’t want their own city of gold?
