    Holy hell! The KO market is surely pumping these things out faster that TakTom could even think about reissuing them.

    Although it seems a little too expensive for a knockoff, these knockoffs are cheap?

    It actaully looks like a decent Menasour. But, that price kills it.

    Why do it oneself when someone else would surely be glad to oblige?

    Thats about what they have been going for, not sure why this price is a surprise. Also... are we not past the point of generalizing all KO's as crap. This particular line of KO's is amazing and pretty much a dead on copy of the vintage figures.

    It's kinda having somebody by the balls though in regards to the price. I mean, with no reissue on the horizon, there's no competition. Sad really.

    Is it really that bad? :confused:  It sounds like a good price to me. We are not talking about Dollar store KO's but high quality replicas.

    What are you guys thinking is a decent price? 20 bucks? I believe someone already made a KO Menasor around that price range and it comes with two technobots:thumbs2:

    id rather pay that than one that was real. i dont give a shit if it is real or not, if no can really tell the difference then so what.

    the bruticus reissue that came out, which i would say is garbage with its flaws that most would compare to KO sold for the same price if not more.

    i just think ppl pride to much on that it is "offically" a has/tak product.

    take any encore reissue, say they were exactly the same toy, but not made by has/tak, ppl would still complain though the quality was spot on.

    I'm tempted by that Menesor just to get the full set cheaper than buying an original G1.
    Hope they do a hq KO Jetfire next!
