    So....now that KO Mirage is out, and he is going for $100+ on ebay, does anyone think the price will drop? Or do you anticipate the KO sellers will keep it high? They claim the quality is the best yet, but how knows. Just wanted to get some opinions, thanks.

    agesthreeandup.com will likely carry it for a decent price.

    if it's quality is good, I'll get it (depending on price). there's no chance of takara doing a mirage reissue, so I'd happily put 60 or so towards it.

    speaking of, I got my first test sample of it today with a shipment of the devastator boxes. I will will post some good close up images of it in the reviews section. I am blown away with this one. Far better than any of the other releases they have done to date.

    Spencer. - $100 on eBay? WTF? That is insane.

    I'd like to get it, but I just can't make myself pay 2x the price of a reissue for a KO.

    Personal feelings of bootlegs aside, I feel that anything over $50 with shipping would be pushing the boundaries of what it's worth.

    I mean, just look back to the Swoop debacle. $60 for $10 of crap in a box.

    I ordered from a guy in HK and I paid about $70-80 after shipping. I ordered it in April when I had no idea if the quality would hold up. I'm glad I ordered, though.

    I know... but he, too, looked nice in pics before anyone paid an arm and a leg to find out he was crap.

    Most likely. It was that way with Swoop.
