    love it.. but the price needs to come down a tad.. KO people stick it to literally everyone when they keep the prices high.. they stick it to the original MFG by stealing their design, and they stick it to the people who buy them when they charge so much for them.

    I mentioned this in the other thread, but I can see who the first five tapes are. Starting from top left going left to right, top to bottom, Laserbeak/Buzzsaw, Ravage, Rumble/Frenzy, but that sixth one... logic suggests Ratbat, but I'm holding my MP Ratbat up to the screen and I just can't find any of his features in that image.

    I was going to disagree with you but I just rechecked. $90 + $30 shipping at Tf-Direct is only $10 less than he originally went for at ToysRUs. Of course he didn't come with Ratbat and the Reissue at BBTS is listed at $160, but I have to agree, $120 shipped is a bit much for a KO, even if it's one of the Best MPs ever.

    [EDIT] Oooooh, now I see it. It's Ratbat. It's a front view and it's unpainted but I finally am able to make out the screw holes and the transformation joint on the part that becomes the rocket pack.

    You are 100% right. The "6th" tape at the moment is a silver verison of buzzsaw/laserbeak . This tape could just be a place holder tho.

    kind of surprised that ratbat is not included, it seems to me the obvious choice to make and include it
    anyway, will be very interested and may replace my Takara Soundwave with the KO if the quality will be on par with BB7 seekers

    I don't know about soundwave but i know the cassette KO version were already on the market.
    Which company is making this?
    Weijiang, KBB or a different one?
    Weijiang make the best KO's and second is KBB to my knowledge.
    Or takasa tony, tanaka tomy :p

    If it's going to be that expensive, i can just buy the real ( hasbro ) one lol.
    I think it's below 80 bucks.
    Like to see 50 or 60 :D 
    Starscream KO from KBB is 60 to 70 euros on ali.
    Don't think soundwave will be more expensive.

    Maybe I'll get one for 50 bucks delivered. Would love to mod it so that it can hold an actual mp3 player.

    It's the mark-up again. Taobao price is closer to 65usd.

    Taobao offers official direct forwarding shipments to the states now via their Taobao World app. Not sure how the shipping will be like but I strongly believe it will be a lot cheaper.

    The app is Chinese only tho afaik...

    I've been thinking about using them to save some coin. I'll have to use the desktop site where I can at least use the translate function on Chrome.

    But do those mp3's transform into soundwave and hold multiple cassettes that can transform into little buggers?

    Having Chinese friends is always a plus.

    According to the description on TF Direct, it just comes with laserbeak. But it also says he can hold 5 cassettes, so not sure it's a reliable description. From TF Direct:

    "KO MP-13 Masterpiece Soundwave includes Laserbeak and be capable of carrying up to 5+1 cassettes!"

    Will this be an upgraded KO or downgraded KO?
