With Target cancelling their exclusive Studio Series 102BB Optimus Prime Preorders recently, there are a lot of upset fans right now. For whatever reason, the inventory for the much anticipated Voyager class made for the Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts didn't meet demand. This leaves some collectors with facing having to pay scalper prices of $75+ USD, not get one altogether, OR consider unofficial alternatives.
Surprisingly, or not, the 3P/4P makers already have a number of different unofficial 102BB Knock Offs (KOs) hitting the market. From what I can gather, these are the figures out in the wild, with some of the details I could find about each one. Buyer beware, these are unofficial products with varying quality of production that may not be as good as the official Hasbro versions.
Retail Price: $25 USD
This looks like a close copy of the 102BB listed at 18 cm / 7.09 inches tall. It has plain grey parts and the standard accessories as well as second sword, axe, and what look like upgraded arm cannons. It is unknown if any remolding, fixes, or improvements were made.
