    I've seen these on eBay, but only for preorder. Ages 3 and Up have a December release date.

    If the box isn't changed, at least you'll be able to tell if a MISB/MIB Grimlock is a knock-off.

    DINOBOT BOMMANDER GRIMLOCK!

    It goes like this:

    General
    Major
    Colonel
    Bommander
    Lieutenant
    Sargent
    Private.






    Anyways! I might pick these up, but only if the price is right.

    I've decided I'm all over these. I can display them in place of my vintage, to avoid breakage.

    And to play with them.

    They don't produce enough of them for them to be able to lower the price and still make a profit. At least that's what I've read on these boards.

    Yeah the price of these really suck. I would love to get all 5 dinos, Mirage, Sunstreaker, and Wheeljack, but at the prices these all sell for it is hard for me to justify. I was hoping they would eventually get to around the $35 price point of the Takara reissues, but that hasn't happened.

    It won't happen....ever. They sell enough to make money with these the way they are, and too many people sit on the fence about their price. So around $70 they will always stay.

    Spencer from Ages Three & Up has mentioned that he has discussed the price point with the manufacturer and that if they lowered the price they could sell a lot more but they are taking the approach of small runs and selling at a higher price point. Theoretically after they finish making new KO's they could come back and make more and sell at a lower price point.

    There are probably a lot more issues with large runs that we are not aware of they they don't want to have to deal with.

    I always wanted a G1 Grimlock. My dad bought me a crappy little bootleg Grimlock instead. Looks like I'll get to finally fulfill my childhood dreams.

    Yeah I would probably pick up some of these Dinobots if the price wasn't so darn high. $40 - $50 would be better.

    Funny there's so much complaining about the price when the news isn't about an auction.

    Don't know if I'm interested in these replicas ... I already own the molds, but I guess I do like them more on G1 colors. Guess I'll decide if I hear their quality is good.

    Good job KOers. No matter what the haters say, these guys have delivered something Takara and Hasbro has failed to do up to this date and that is reissue the Dinobots.
