    +$65 Shipping = $125

    That's a bit more than the Metroplex KO is going for, and it's just a repaint of him. I'll still end up paying it, but I'm gonna wait till their more readily available, maybe I'll be able to save $20 or so... that's an extra voyager fig I could buy with that money :)

    Ouch... that is a bad picture or the plastic is Pink!

    And I am unsure why stores do the obscenely high shipping but low Buy it now price. Is that to get out of Ebay's fee where Ebay only charges based on auction price and not shipping?

    I think that seller's a member here, either that or he's using a pic that a board member took. If you look down at the bottom of the auction he has other KOs listed/pictured, next to the Predaking KO is another Metrotitan pic posed in front of a mirror. I've seen this pic posted on here before, but for the life of me I don't remember what thread it was in.

    You guys should bear in mind that the Metroplex/Metrotitan bootlegs are produced by Kiddi Toys, makers of those cheap ass G1 combiner bootlegs.


    Exactly. Hong Kong and China-based sellers do this all the time to ensure maximum profit while paying eBay as little in terms of fees as possible.

    This has the added downside of eBay only covering you a fraction of your bid/BIN price should you get ripped off or something,

    Nope. It was said in another thread I was just reading yesterday that he was not. Can't remember which thread it was, though.

    Aw man, this is the only k/o I was looking forward to. Though if it's pink I'm gonna skip it and hunt down an original.

    That is a great way to have everyone no longer buy Knockoffs, make them hideous.

    I WANT to think this is some kind of lighting-issue, but the rest of the colors seem pretty spot-on.

    I was almosyt planning on getting him to replace my custom-Metrotitan, but no Metrobomb and PINK = my version is superior!

    Huge dissappointment...that pink is garrish!

    Plus, if this is the same company that makes those really cheap combiners, no thank you! Anyone have a KO Metroplex? How is the quality?
