    ...or is he only sold by lying ebay scumbags that charge way too much? I know there's a ton of these out there, surely some honest person is selling them at a decent price for a KO. I want a new Prime!

    its usually sold by lying evil-doers who pass them off for real ones, exept for the $80ish which usually state it.

    sadly.

    What do you consider decent? I think that is the big question.

    just two months ago I saw auctions for him as cheap as 40 dollars, and spencer (^that guy^) had some pretty fairly priced too (considering the amazing quality of the KO and packaging).

    Why not just pre-order Encore Convoy?

    bingo.

    I do like the KO's but those were an alternative to the high priced reissues of 1.5 years ago.

    The Encore is about $50 and is of higher quality.





    Like Spencer said, define "good price". I think the best I've seen is $70 + $5 shipping, for a mint package shipping from CA.

    Not only all the above points but the Encore comes in Japanese packaging. I don't know about you but I think that is just great looking, even with the huge Takara/Tomy logo in the top corner.

    Spencer - has not decided if I want to restock the KO normal prime but does have some BLACK ones coming next week.

    i got mine for $40 on a "best offer" submission on e-bay. the guy wanted $80, plus $20 shipping, i talked him down to $15 shipping and $40 for prime from china. This was when they wer ein the $80-$100 range.

    I'm actually looking for a black one now.

    He's a troll, just ignore his ignorant ass. He'll get banned soon enough.

    Well then, encore it is. Despite what some morons think, I DO like official reissues if the price is right.

    Oh, and vnutz...you don't know shit about me. I display what I want, how I want, but I don't claim that reissues and/or KOs are "vintage". Even if I did, SO WHAT? What difference does it make? I'm not selling these, I'm not ripping anybody off, I can display whatever I want on my shelves without your approval. I don't tell the few people that view my collection which ones are real, and which are KOs/reissues, because they simply wouldn't care. If a KO or a reissue is good enough for me, it's absolutely NONE OF YOUR CONCERN.

    Please keep your mouth shut about me, because you know nothing.

    the cheapest for a single is about $30 US in china, if you buy a lot you can probably get them for $20 each.

    yeah, i would just get the encore.

    I know where you can get a KO Prime for what would be a good price for a G1 Prime..............................oh ebay..........

    But www.agesthreeandup.com gets all the lookalike/boxed KOs in stock, they have swoop instock, mirage coming, etc., but I'm not sure if they have the Prime right now.

    truth hurts huh? it was a valid question. "why not just get the encore prime?"

    yeah getting the encore is a good idea, it would be a similar price to the KO and that way avoiding the whole KO thing altogether, regardless of opinions on KOs, getting the real thing is always better than getting an unofficial reproduction, no? I can't wait for the encores, I've got mine preordered!
