    Just thought I would post the final in box image I got from the supplier. This one is the plastic wheel version of the figure as you can see in the images. These will be shipping out within the next two weeks so expect a good review when they come in. If they are anywhere near the quality of the KO Alt Prowl then I will be very impressed.

    Now would be the perfect time to KO the minibots pictured on the box.

    Hey Spencer, if we preorder through you, and it turns out to suck, will you still hold us to it?



    Thanks
    Chris


    EDIT: Oh, and now would be a PERFECT time to have a nice Superion or Defensor set to connect to Metroplex. HINT HINT HINT HINT!!

    uh, call me ignorant but WHY would you want a KO Wheelie when you can easily find him what with the mass of vintage versions and the Kup reissue having the little brat included....:confused:

    Poster box? Will it include the poster? The toy catalog?

    Is this the same company who produced the horrible fall-apart-on-contact combiner sets from Big Lots and all of the Easter baskets the last couple of years?

    Unfortunately an order is an order, and yes I would hold you too it. These are not going to be tough to get and even if I run out of the first batch quick I will always be able to order more of them, unlike trying to order more product from Takara or Hasbro. If you are concerned about the quality I would suggest waiting for a review of the figure. I will conduct a good review and I believe I am an honest reviewer and have no problem pointing out its flaws. I am sure that someone else on here will also want to do a review of it as well. Once those reviews are in you can make a more informed decison at that time.

    It is unfortunate you are not in Vancouver because then all you would have to do is come into the store and check it out yourself.

    Also, I have been able to lower the price on it. Currently the preorder price of it is $99.99, a drop of $10. I am currently working on attempting better shipping rates as this would be able to lower the price more but I am unsure if that will happen with this figure.

    I am unsure what paperwork it will come with. I believe I was told the catalogue, instructions and sticker sheet but don't know about the poster. Sorry.

    The website listed shows some of those horrible products.

    Wow - look at all the rubbish they knock out. It actually brings a tear to the eye thinking that some kids may find those under the christmas tree.

    It has them listed as having 10 people involved in R&D which can only mean 10 people working hard at ripping existing bots apart and manufacturing copies of them. Thats kinda sad :(

    What horrible products? I only see 5 items - Metroplex and the alt knockoffs.

    The alts may not be as good as the originals, but from what I've read they aren't anywhere near the shitty quality of your average Biglots KO Superions and Devastators, which is what I expect to see when "horrible product" is mentioned.

    EDIT: Oh, I see. The second site has some crap on it, yeah. LOTS of crap.
