I got this in the mail last week:












Peacebonded Sad




With a real one for comparison. This KO is really nicely done the plastic quality is a slight bit sub par to the Takara original but overall very high quality. The color is slightly deeper in the light blue with a duller polish finish overall compared to the original. The missile accessories are fantastic though:

“Superman Blocks”?!? Christ some of these knockoffs are like something out of one of my weird toy dreams. I opened this thread thinking I was going to see a Superman figure blocking the path of a KO Mecha Acroyear or something.

You must be very chuffed to display them both next to each other. Mecha himself is something of a find. Is the KO rarer and more valuable?

The name semi makes sense in the chinese version of the Microman name where it actually becomes something close to Micro Star Little Superman. Taiwan has a lot of good Microman stuff in the form of bootlegs, bootleg manga in chinese, official redubs of the show (including a unique theme song etc. ) and one of the biggest Microman collectors is an actor/professor from Taiwan.

This is way more rare than Mecha Acroyear. Although I've seen a few pics of this toy in the past this is the first time I ever saw one for sale. There are a few more bootlegs that I seriously want including the all neon KO Diaclone Battle Buffalo from Taiwan and the all white Argentina KO of the Diaclone Big Powered. I've never seen either of those for sale though, but hopefully sooner or later!

If you're interested in bootlegs check out my TW Toy Blog and check out some of my friend links they have tons of bootleg stuff. I'm really interested in when the KO's either change scale, color, or get some wacky new pieces haha.
