    I would find a different place to get one from, if I were you. I don't like the gold one enough to buy, and I'm sure that's the case with most people. Knockoff Lucky Draws kinda defeat the purpose.

    I'm sure there might be a few, but it's probably not going to happen.

    I have yet to see a LD KO, other than the gold wheeled G1 Optimus Prime. I guess it would be interesting to see how close to the real thing they can get. :dunce

    I might get one for a novelty value if it's cheap enough. But I am not too keen on bootlegs, so I can't commit.

    Hope your project comes true regardless :)

    Actually, 999 does'nt sound to overwhelming. Give it a few years , or maybe just a year with the right advertising, and you can probably get that many into it.

    Would go digibash some Big Convoy's gold, then make a cheapo webpage/ad, get permissions and/or friendly partnerships and start getting people pumped.

    It's a sweet fig and some people could consider it as their own po mans lucky draw or something.
    Maybe you can have each one personalized.
    I'll throw extra in to get my name on one, Figueroa style

    Call me crazy, but I don't think mass produced versions of extremely limited figures is a good thing...

    While I have no interest whatsoever attaining lucky draws, I'm all for the mass production of bootleg/KO lucky draws. I hope the deal works out for you.

    And I reckon that with time you could turn the 1000 KOs to profit. But still, that's not really what collecting transformers is about (unless you're a scalper in which case gtfo)

    I'm trying to figure out why KO Lucky Draws are somehow worse than KO G1s. To me, it's the same thing. I'm still surprised no enterprising KO maker has decided to to the Botcon seekers.

    well just to have I wouldnt sell it as its something I would want to keep. i personally like the Big Gold convoy but who knows is there are anymore out there. It might of been a special employee figure or something and even if there are more of them out there, there a few members who would pay anything to get that one figure and I don't have that type of money to spend on one toy. So in my case one gold ko big convoy is good in my opinion. Im a guitarist and would rather spend a few thousand on a custom made guitar than a toy.

    That's my take on it....not to sound like a d*ck cause Im not trying to be, just stating my reason for wanting a ko version.
