    I have an opportunity to get a Battle Tanker. But, being as I am a tightwad, and have $400 on one card and $250 on another plus saving up for a little vehicular maintenace plus a trip to Disney / Universal I don't always pull the trigger.

    But I can get it for $50 +- after shipping.

    I've been meaning to hock some stuff here on the boards, and I can afford it if I had to... but I guess this tightwad just needs some encouragement.

    That's a good price, and it makes a decent figure, into a great one.

    Hell, if it is the legit version, I would buy a second one for $50. I would be all over that thing.

    Wait $50 for the tanker? Anything wrong with it? That's stupid cheap. I have mine going for $125 with both versions of the laser Prime included...and I thought I was giving a deal...

    Who is selling for that cheap? And yes for that price go for it.

    $50 is really cheap. I'd buy it. Even if you don't like it you could probably sell it for nearly double the price.

    For that price, I'd go for it. It really is a nice set.

    For that price I would almost bet money that it's the KO. If not, great deal.

    Yeah I have a feeling that's a KO. That price seems too good to be true.

    Yeah, there is another auction on there for $34.99 where the seller clearly says it's a KO. It looks as much like the real thing as this one. Most certainly a KO.

    well at least the KO's are supposed to be pretty good for this set. I think the head is the big difference. There's a good thread that shows all the differences between both of them somewhere.

    I can believe if someone has some extras to get rid of,
    but it's the shipping that gets me.

    Probably right- just might be the KO... and that head really did suck despite the rest of the figure.

    Done deal now... I guess I'll just wait and see and hope for the best. If not... consider it lesson learned and try and make it work.

    You could try buying an extra head off someone who owns the tanker set if it indeed turns out to be KO. Everyone who bought one did receive an extra head.

    I have the KO and it's really good. Unless you're comparing side by side you'd have to be a real pro to know the difference. I'd go for it personally.

    I'm leaning towards getting the KO version myself.

    If you are asking this question im assuming battle tanker is not a top priority for you.I understand at $50 thats a great deal but put it this thats $50 less for your disey.I would recomened you enjoy your trip and get your car fixed and get tanker later down the road.
