    Hey everyone, I'm trying to get a hold of a few specific Cyber Keys before Botcon for a small project (my wife is making some sets of Cyber Key jewelry for the convention), and I'm not really in a position to buy the figures these particular keys come with. So, instead, I'd like to buy the keys directly from anyone looking to sell.

    Specifically, I'm looking for the Gold 'Planet Leader' keys, the ones included with the 'leader' characters of each planet in Cybertron. I already have the Velocitron key (included with Override/Nitro Convoy), so I'm only in the market for the following keys:

    Gold Gigantion (Giant Planet) Key, included with Leader-class Metroplex

    Really, as long as the price is reasonable for a good-condition key, I'm willing to pay it. I just need these before Botcon. Thanks to anyone who can help!

    EDIT: Since the only one left is the Gigantion key, if anyone has a full Metroplex they're willing to offer (any condition as long as it has the key), I'd likewise be interested.

    EDIT #2: I am more than willing to pay $10-$15 just for the key. If anyone can help, please and thank you.

    Since your needs seem to be time (and price) sensitive.

    Suggestion 1: If you need this for a Botcon project does it have to be the real golden keys? Can you just gold Sharpie some normal keys?
    Suggestion 2: If the keys aren't going to be destroyed in your project then have you considered borrowing keys from a local?

    1 - I would prefer the real golden keys, since the one I've already incorporated is the gold Velocitron key. It's hard to Sharpie chrome and make it still look like chrome.
    2 - I only have a few local personal contacts, and even then, these keys will be modified, so borrowing isn't really an option.

    As for price, like I said, I'm willing to pay anything that's reasonable for a good quality key. Even in the range of, say, $10 or so.

    Bump! Please, if anyone can help out, that'd be great. My wife's necklace is almost complete, save this one key!

    I feel your pain.
    It took me a while, but I finally got the very key you're looking for. (I also had to find and buy a BotCon Huffer to give his Orange Earth Key to a custom I'm working on.) Thanks to Supreme Class Starscream, the only gold key I need is Scourge's Gold Jungle Planet Key (u2m8, or Galaxy Force version). I'd still like to find an Evac Gold Earth Key some day, but it's not a high demand item.

    I wish someone had the skill to reproduce these keys, in any color (not just the standard red, green, blue, purple, and clear), with or without the chromed elements.

    I have a Cybertron Metroplex:

    Even though it does not come with instruction booklet, it comes with the Mini-Con partner and Gold Gigantion (Giant Planet) Key.

    You interested? :inquisiti
