    Hello... Not sure if this is the right place to discuss this....

    I recently got this...

    Alpha Base Robot | CollectionDX

    does anyone here know how good the quality of the toy is? I mean it looks super cool with all the chrome & I guess even cooler that he's got a different head... star saber's head?

    I'd appreciate any feedback from anyone... just want to know a little more about this toy - thanks!

    Well, according to the review that you linked, it's pretty high quality, and I trust Collection DX quite a bit on their reviews

    WOW, congrats, it's always a little dream ko for me since I discovered it years ago... the overall quality (plastic, joints, color apps etc.) has to be very good :) 

    One day I'll got it eheh :D

    is the guy selling more of these?

    any link to his ebay/amazon/? auctions

    how much did you buy this KO Overlord for?

    it looks really amazing & I want one.

    I saw another similar KO Overlord on ebay months ago from a over seas seller. but a few gimmicks were cancelled gutted out from the toy. like the flip out robot chest weapons. i don't think the toy came with powermasters & that feature was deleted on the toy. I think it had the overlord head but came in weird colors. the box art showed better colors & gimmicks but the toy had different colors & cancelled out gimmicks.

    The original poster is not the reviewer.

    Collectiondx is just a site that reviews toys, they don't actually sell anything (okay, that's not entirely true, they do have a store, but it's mostly just site related swag)

    The auction links at the bottom are not their links, they've got some html script that shows ebay auctions that should match whatever review you're seeing.

    I've seen stuff on TFW about this KO before, quite a while ago; it's supposed to be extremely good quality indeed, and because of that it can command a price around the same as an actual Overlord. Well worth it though, by all accounts. Congrats on pickingone up trizeo!

    I can find out from him..

    The price... well eh?! costed a pretty penny... nothing like a F/Max & cheaper then what a Overlord would cost. I'm just trying to find out if I made a right choice... @ the very least I do have a chance of returning him... or it sounds like some peeps here would like him :)

    Well... It was a little cheaper than Overlord. I actually have an Overlord... you want to know the actual reason why I got him?... ahahah! just so that Overlord could have 2 sheilds & 2 guns! ahahah!... I just realized after that he had a different face hense the post to find out what peeps knew... Thanks yo... I'll have a look see when I get him & post it up (if I decide to keep him) in my collections thread!

    I was going to by one of these about a year ago on ebay, but by the time I got the money together ebay had yanked the auction for being a KO. The seller was asking $250 shipped from Asia, dunno what the going rate is for them but it seemed fair to me at the time. Supposed to be really good quality from what I heard, but I've yet to find another one for sale to find out.

    If anyone knows where to get these from you'd make me a happy lil' camper. :D

    Hahah! that's reason why I started this thread! Best I can offer since I've done a little bit more digging was google Alpha Base Robot. There were another set of pics I found of a guy trying to sell his a year ago...
