Smile More knockoffs surfacing... Reflector

Though this lot you aren't going to mistake for the real thing unless they're loose and you're a bit slow (...just as a reminder, watch out for carded cassettes at the moment or any boxed Swoops that turn up in the relatively near future. If something looks in too good condition to be genuine, it probably isn't.)

That looks mighty sharp. I still gotta track down a lens for my original . . . when I actually have money.

They seem to be available in at least a couple of "main body of camera" colours, including red and blue.

I think the red looks pretty sharp. Possibly not twenty quid sharp, but compared to the cost of a set of original era ones... I should've hunted around the warehouse clearance place I got my Joustra Browning from back in the day...

The blue scheme just might give me a reason to start collecting again. Always wanted Reflector and I'd rather not pay a premium for an original on e-bay.

Actually, I picked up the knock-off cassettes a while back, for the Rumble and Frenzy of course. The quality isn't too shabby on these and they were fairly cheap. They're definitely a close likeness to the originals and I have noticed some sellers trying to scam people on e-bay. It certainly doesn't help matters much that they're also packaged in replicated versions of the original cards.

Yeah, they look decent and I've seen good feedback -- just want people to be aware of what's out there and use common sense when bidding. If I see a set with Ratbat in for cheap, I'll probably nab 'em... but it'd be an impulse thing. By the time they're imported to the US and back out, for instance, it adds up.
