    Neat piece!

    Is the KO more rare the original? If so, that might explain the willingness to go so high on it.

    I don't know much about Japanese Transformers but if you take a look at the bidders you'll see that two bidders raised the price from $500 to $960.

    :lol  Auto bro, that e-bayer is certainly living in his own "make-believe" world! ;) 

    I would pay a premium--but certainly not nearly 1 k USD for a knock-off (however good/excellent the toy/ reproduction is) Its not justified IMHO.

    Well, all i can say to that seller is "Good Luck"! He needs it! :lol  ;) 





    Oh ans P.S..... willing to shell out USD 500 for your MIB Dinoking giftset ... Dont mind C8 condition used also can ;) 

    Enough ka? hehe :confused2 
    but not now...seeing that i cant even afford a K.O.! ;)

    Maybe it's someone looking to make G1 accurate KOs? I doubt it, but that would help out some people big time.

    Like I said in a past thread, I seen this go more than the original set at times. But this is really out of hand.

    Damn, someone really wanted this set. I'm starting to regret not buying the one Octane had for sell at $75.00 awhile back. :(

    After what it took for me to get that for you, you better get more than $1500!!;) 
    I would have to say that while $960 for this is out of this world crazy, it is pretty rare. I almost never seen them and when the original giftset version does show up it goes for more so technically this is a cheaper option for a giftset.

    haha, wtf, this thread is like a reunion for all these people i know...dealt w/ megamus before, just bought some shat off of of shockwaveg77, know CZ, and the vintage-j-hunter singaporean and malaysian are here too :) 

    this all started when that guy posted that thread in the toy discussion thread and more people became aware of this auction...i didn't even know about it until after the thread. wow, the seller probably was one of the guys that won a KO dinoking from that guy in italy for 300-400, HE'S probably laughing his ass off too.

    the buyers going to be in for a shock when he realizes how 'effin small dinoking is, lol.

    That's ok, if he is upset I will be more than happy to replace it with an oversize KO Dinoking;) 
    Yeah, between Cobra Zartan, you and me, you definitely have a strange amalgamation of messed up collectors.
