    With all the KOs abound who would be the safest bet to order from. Also how awesome is he.

    BBTS would be a safe bet. They have excellent customer service as well and would go out of their way to fix the problem if you got a knock off. That's where I got mine from :)

    I got mine from tfsource and love it. Never had any problems from them and they go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect.

    BBTS may be a little more expensive but think of it as paying for insurance.

    All other stores I think is buyer beware. Very sad.

    Sorry, but if you want decent stuff, you gotta pay decent money! Metroplex is well worth what is being asked for him at most places.

    Tfsource said they sorted out their KO issues. I got mine from there, and it had none of the traits of the KO. They are sold out though.

    I am patiently waiting to get a 2nd one from BBTS - I've been watching their stock for months, and they've held steady at about 200 or so. They are going to have to lower the price sooner or later.

    Out of curiosity, how can you tell how many items are in stock at BBTS? Is it a trick with the shopping cart?

    Well I went with BBTS thanks for helping me out. Also I already have Omega Supreme and yes he does rock and I always wanted Metroplex as a kid. A friend of mine had him when we were kids and would never let me play with him. So 20 years later I'll finally have my turn.

    BBTS man, you get what you pay for in terms of service.

    Yeah BBTS is a little pricey. I ordered Masterpiece Voltron(plastic version) awhile ago and it shipped fast and was in perfect condition. So I guess it's worth it in terms of quality and service.

    Yeah I freakin love my Masterpiece Voltron. His colors are perfect his joints are nice and stiff and you can get him in many killer poses. Unlike the metal version where he is too heavy and loose plus for the price you can't go wrong.
