    Someone please explain to me the concept behind these things. I just dont get it. Why they come with a CD, why they're repainted in those awful colors, who those 3 anime girls are etc.

    Oh, and why are they worth $50? This all seems absurd to me. I think it's the anime girls that scare me more than anything.

    Robots get special powers when they kiss their female sidekicks.


    No, i don't like the idea much either. Many a post has been dedicated to recycling the same complaints about it being perverted and killing Binaltech dead.

    The upside is Hot Rodimus was done nicely, and Autorooper is pretty nice.



    Why are any of the toys that you have worth what you payed for them?

    Think what you want, but Conmvoy, rodimus and autorooper are NOT painted in aweful colors. Convoy is superior to Alt prime's colors, and Rodimus is fantastic and Autorooper is nice, if plain when no stickers are applied.


    Also KP>BT anyday.

    what are you talking about FP? Optimus and Hot Rod in red? When have they EVER been in those colors? It's ridiculous. And a white cop car? Who's ever seen such a thing? Totally unrealistic [/sarcasm]

    Because they rock. I only paid $50 or over for two of my transfomers; MP-04 Convoy w/ Trailer and the MP-05. Those are definitely worth every penny.

    I got a MISB TRU Soundwave for $40. Seeing as how you can get Soundwave AND 2 of the 3 cassettes (in their original colors) buying the kiss players seems like a really bogus move.

    Here's another site about Kiss Players (WARNING! NSFW. Hell, it's not safe for those with weak stomachs or brains that don't want bad images scarred into them)

    http://www.toyvey.com/kisskiss/

    I don't like this idea. Not one bit.

    So it's the cassettes you are saying are done in awful colors?

    Yeah, I think that is what he is saying.

    The colors on those cassettes are quite um.. vivid. So much in fact that I bought two boxes.

    I rather like the ravage and eject repaint, the laserbeak redeco is just not the best.

    Yeah, sorry for not being more specific. I haven't seen the entire line yet. Either way I'd feel pretty weird standing in line to buy something with 8-year old anime girls plastered all over it.

    Kissplay figures are saweet... bring it down to the base level of them being transformers.. and forget the manga, which btw, i have never even gazed upon... and you have some mighty sweet figures. Only one i own right now is Autorooper but i love him I even applied the decals.

    I like Sundor's (Laserbeak) colors personally. Glit (Ravage) is my least favorite in that set. Unfortunately, something is off about my Sundor's right leg. It doesn't seem to want to fold up all the way for the cassette mode. The tip of it (the toe in robot bird mode) gets caught on the edge.



    I have all three Kiss BT/Alts. Convoy looks much better than Alt Prime, and Hot Rodimus kicks @$$ (for once I got a TF before the price went up over $100). Autorooper is cool, but I still haven't decided who he'll be to me (haven't applied any stickers yet). I got into those more for the accessories (Convoy's surfboard sword, Hot Rodimus' fishing pole), and got the cassettes since I recently acquired a G1 Blaster.
