    I remember finding these multi-colored G1 Casette KOs waaay back a few years ago on ebay.

    They don't have any weapons, and come in multiple color variations. The importance of these is, of course, the Graphy(Gurafi) and Noise (Noizu) KO, as for me (and everyone else who doesn't have 600-700$ to throw away) this would be a cheap way to at least get a KO Dinocasette.


    Sadly when I asked the seller he did not have Graphy and Noise, and I could not find him since then...

    Anyone knows if these are still avaliable for buy somewhere?

    I would pay a more than fair amount for KO Dinocassettes... interesting alternative, and they can always be repainted.

    It's been a while since they have been on ebay. The main seller on ebay doesn't have anymore. I heard the quality was pretty poor.

    I have almost all the ones in the pics of the OP (including Graphy). I got them some years ago from a seller in Singapore. Maybe Solitudinal could help out, as they seem to be common bootlegs over there.

    If anyone wants any pics I'll be happy to take and post them up. Quality is not as good as an original cassette but they are some of the best KOs in quality that I have.

    I always wanted to get a set of the Japanese Dino KOs but I think something fell through with my purchase. Maybe an incompetent seller. I did get a set of the normal size ones which are yellow, red, and blue. Only real interesting piece is Ramhorn done in blue and with a hippo face/head. :)

    Rather old thread but curious was anyone ever able to confirm a KO Noizu from this set/collection. Never seen pics of it. I know theres an Overkill so maybe Noizu got confused with Overkill. Only ever seen mentioned here and I believe one other thread on these forums. Got all those pictured up above. Missing that Ramhorn with the hippo head though, in case anyone wishes to unload... All in all just wanted to know if I need to keep an eye out for Noizu and maybe see a pic if at all possible. Thankd

    I'm not sure what company it is that makes them, but I just got a KO set of the four Dinocassettes off of iOffer. The quality is decent, not fantastic.

    Appreciate the info but was only looking for these specific old school knockoffs. That ones your talking about were ones created by KOToys not too long ago. Decent standins for the money. But yeah personally trying to collect all the little cassette variants out there. Bit of an ardugeous task. Got the list in my signature in case you wanna check out. Thanks again
