    I have SG Roddy already (got in person at Botcon 2008), but I'll gladly get a CHMS Wildrider for $25-35 clams.

    Will be grabbing the Wildrider most likely. Unless there is a oversized RtS Windcharger in Wildriders colors in the works.

    Nope because the demand for the original real figures will continue to be great regardless of cheap KO's.

    The price will go down some. Simple supply and demand regardless of the fact that it is a KO as it will satisfy many people's urge to buy SG Rodimus or Wildrider. The question is how much?

    I doubt it'd lower the price that much. Just a guess.

    With the news of a KO coming out it just makes me want an original even more.

    Have any other KO's affected the price of any of the originals?

    Yeah, me too. It's funny, I am ok with this if they list somewhere on the body that this was a reproduction and not the real thing. This is definitely questionable...

    KO SG Optimus Prime is out there, and the original one is still going for $500+ easy! I'm not sure if that means he'd be worth $700 up if there were no KO

    Sure. Almost everyone ever released. And the KOs that don't reflect the original scheme (a la Double Shattered Glass Prime) do not effect the original because they are not a valid replacement for said original figure.

    I generally avoid KO but because SG Rodimus is so expensive I might buy one as a place holder until I get a real one, same goes fo SG Optimus Prime. Have a KO doesn't stop me from wanting the real one.
