KOtoys.com has announced a new batch of knock-offs. This time we are ‘treated’ to a G1 knock-off of Bluestreak and Blitzwing. Both of these figures have Diaclone versions, and Bluestreak’s is incredibly notable. After seeing what has happened when Knock-offs, Diaclone, and G1 mix together, I am all but certain that one of the greatest tales in Transformers lore is about to be wiped off the slate. No one wants a regular G1 Bluestreak anymore, the reissues were far more than enough to appease the appetites of us G1 fanboys. The only reason worth knocking off this piece is to create one of the rarest and most misunderstood unicorns out there: Diaclone Blue Bluestreak.
By the way, one of these is on Ebay right now and it’s only got a small bid of something like $2000. Think I’m kidding?

I’ll be really sad to see the most argument-inducing figures ever become a shitty knock-off toy from China. So sad in fact, that I might just give up and sell everything. Cash in now before the ko’s become worth much more than the originals!
It seems that the only thing I write about anymore are these wretched knock offs… ba hum bug.
I won the auction. Can’t wait for it to arrive, dreamed of it since I was a small kid. Oh my. Can’t believe all my six year old dreams will finally come true. Always wanted a blue one and now the real deal will be mine. The only thing I was forever denied as a child, blue was my favorite color and bluestreak my favorite toy, but he was not blue. Except on that box of broken dreams and false promises. The problem is I can’t play with this one or touch it or transform it. Maybe the knock offs would let others who were not in a position to spend that kind of money have their childhood dream, too.
I think we all had that dream, and that’s why the price of that toy is so much. Congrats on the purchase! I want to hear more!
Just so you know, that very knock off will make the 3 big ones that you laid down just now worth considerably less. A large chunk of people that may have been willing to pay over $1000 for that toy will now be satisfied with their $20 impersonator, just sayin’.
