    Received the 2nd set of KO Dinocassettes [Graphy and Noise] from KOToys today. If you're after originals, be careful.

    I'd be happy to buy those if I could get them somewhere else.

    Did you get the free wst Blaster with your order?

    I was too late ordering the 2nd set. If anyone has an extra set please pm me.

    So these are from KOtoys.com? Did you get a tracking #?

    i am still waiting on a tracking Number. What was your order # if I may ask?

    Just trying to gauge when mine may show up.

    I hope I get my set soon. They emailed me a little over a week ago showing pics, and saying they would give me tracking info, but I haven't heard anything yet.

    Same story!

    Fingers crossed.

    BTW, mcluskyism, are the boxes put together correctly? In those preview pics they sent me, if they assembled the boxes they showed, the back would have been upside down. did they correct that?

    Ya I havent received a tracking number either but then again I selected the cheap shipping. It seemed to take about 3 weeks for the first pair of dino-cassettes so I'm not expecting this 2nd pair to show up until mid to late February (which actually would be cool since that'd be just in time for my b-day).

    If they actually answered their emails, sent people their tracking numbers in good time (or at all) hadn't removed the forums, and replaced the main part of the site with some Guy Falkes like rant against Hasbro then I'd have a lot more confidence in them but as they have removed all visible means of communications between buyer and seller - that is only going to make them seem even worse than many people think the set up is already.

    These cassettes often seem to come with the rivets not knocked in properly - does anyone know what sort of tool is used to do this so they do not shatter and pancake when tightened - and if they are supposed to be heated before the ends are flattened ?

    I was wondering how you can get that 'factory look' to the ends.

    No wst Blaster, said this in the e-mail with my tracking number: "About the freebie sound blaster diy set , we can not finished it on times before the last shiping before chinese new year ,if you going to order in the future i can include in it . i am sorry about it ."

    I didn't order when they had them on the site, I was sent an e-mail on the 15th Jan saying that they're ready to go and did I want them as I'd ordered the previous dinocassettes. Replied to that e-mail and paid for EMS shipping and got an e-mail with tracking number on the 18th Jan.

    The boxes are misassembled, with the upside down back. Hopefully it won't be corrected to make the KOs an easy spot.

    I've got a pending order with no tracking number either. I guess I'll just be playing the waiting game and hope they show up!

    Last time I ordered it took more than 2 weeks before they posted the goods and still managed to miss some thing out of the order too.

    order

    just got my order a few weeks ago in perfect condition...i emailed them over 5 times with no answer...then suddenly one day the box came and there it was. unfortunately i wasn't notified of the shipment or given a tracking number from kotoys. i am sure that those who are waiting will get theirs soon. btw, all i got extra were two clear plastic cassette holders, no wst blaster as stated when i ordered them in december.

    Ebay:
    Anyone get extras of these, or have any way to do a bulk buy?

    I can't get them to respond to email anymore, and I'd rather not pay what the odd set that shows up on eBay is going for.

    I've been wondering about these, as well. Paid for them back in January, but can't seem to get an email reply from them, either.
