    wow, that place is KO central, AND they've got free shipping. that's also the cheapest I've seen the dinobots and mirage for. and those ko shockwaves are pretty sweet.

    they have reflector in us mail away box, but i'd rather get the jap box, or the us version original box, but nowhere else even comes this close to having them.

    this site makes me leary and excited at the same time. some of the KO prices are good. great for repaints. i may try one out and see what happens.


    EDIT: just ordered a KO. just a cheap one (that have been wanting) i'll let you all know how it works out.

    what ever ya do don't change the currency to pounds as it adds about £100 on top of most items heres a few examples of what i found

    masterpiece trailer $59.99USD (about £30UK) when listing is in dollers
    same item £118.78UK (around $232USD) when listing is set to pounds

    Encore starscream $39.99USD (about £20) when set to dollers
    same iten £79.18UK (about $155USD) when in pounds

    This seems a bit strange to me.

    It sounds like the exchange rate is backwards. I would bet it is a mistake.

    Sweet!:thumbs2:  But I wonder why they don't have the black Optimus or the Mirage variants.:confused: 

    They have a forum. That's pretty cool. Now somebody needs to start using it! The 1st thread is MINE!!! AND YOU'RE NOT GOING TO LIKE IT :lolol 


    Anybody else notice the bottom of the page says:

    Seibertron.com? What's that about? Is it their site?

    I ordered a KO reissue reflector from them a couple of days ago. I recieved an email that said item will ship within 48hrs and allow 3-4 weeks delivery international mail. So I assume it is coming from overseas somewhere.

    I sent them an email. They said the red Mirage IS available just not listed because few people ever order it. So I assume that means the clear & black Mirages are also available along with the black Optimus.

    I still think the prices are waaay too high!

    I recieved an email today updating my order to "delivered". I am assuming that means shipped. I think KO Reflector may be on its way.

    i asked about the japanese and US reflector boxes, and they have no idea what i was talking about.

    so, i went and ordered the KO reflector. really, all i wanted was the manual and the styro. I'll make my own box.
