    I've seen some of these recently on Ebay and they sell for $1-$10+ and I was wondering if these things are worth the money or are they too fragile to handle? I like them b/c they are like the WST line but in model kit form and look good too. Anyone actually have some of these?

    Hav'nt seen them. Kabayas are pretty cool , just a little hollow and not very poseable.

    Which ones did you find? Got any links?
    Guessing they're all Transformer related.

    Ebay:
    Here's links to the searches I used to find them. Not many right now, but the guy I'm talking with has 33 different models/model sets. He just wants way too much for them off ebay.

    and

    http://search-desc.ebay.com/search/search.dll?sofocus=bs&sbrftog=1&fstype=1&from=R10&satitle=transformers+kabaya&sacat=-1%26catref%3DC6&bs=Search&fts=2&fsop=1%26fsoo%3D1&coaction=compare&copagenum=1&coentrypage=search&sargn=-1%26saslc%3D2&sadis=200&fpos=30228&ftrt=1&ftrv=1&saprclo=&saprchi=

    I was gonna buy about 23 of them from one of the sellers, but he wants $550 for the models and $50 for the shipping. Thats over $20 a kit. I don't like them nearly that much! I could probably buy the few original G1's I'm missing for that much (note that I have a lot of the G1's already that the kits are based on). I figured they'd have about as much poseability as the originals. I've been watching these on ebay for a month or so and most haven't sold for more than $8-9 tops, there are some exceptions though.

    I'm currently waiting on one of these I won on e-bay, the Liokaiser one. I'll let you know how it is.

    I'd like to have them all. Too bad those auctions close before I'll get my income tax refund...

    I got the Rodimus Prime kit (surprise surprise :p ) but I haven't finished building it. I need to get some glue for the arm pegs, otherwise they'll fall out when I tf him. It seems ok so far, but there is a bit of flash on some of the parts. And it's going to need a coat of paint.

    Im waiting to the little "hype" for these die down. I mean, I'll pay the money for some KOs, but the few people have been asking for on EBAY for these, is ridiculous IMO. :rolleyes:
