    Just glanced on eBay and didn't see any, sorry.
    I did recently find my Minerva reprolabels so if anyone wants them let me know.

    I don't want to bump an old thread but since it was already bumped... I too would love to buy these but I've searched for a while and come up completely empty-handed.

    Maybe I should be looking on a Korean site and middlemanning them? I'm not sure how else to get them short of paying hundreds or even thousands of dollars for the real deal, which I just can't do.

    I'm not sure either because I've searched a bunch of times on eBay in the past couple of days and NEVER seen those two. In fact, searching eBay still doesn't show me anything other than some SCF PVC Minervas, two boxed ones and a Minerva helmet. And a bunch of non-Transformers stuff. Really weird.

    Still, bloody hell, those prices are INSANE. $255 for a knock-off? I found it on some Korean sites, albeit out of stock, but the RRP is somewhere between NZ$3 and NZ$7 it seems (which is about US$2 and US$5). $255 (which is NZ$355, so it's insanely expensive) for a used knock-off with no box is just criminal. I mean, technically these are illegal anyway since they're counterfeit goods (not that I particularly care in this case), but the whole point of a knock-off is to be cheap. I guess it's cheap relative to the real deal but bleh, it's a ton of money either way.

    I have a $5.99 Raiden KO from Big Lots, that I paid .25 cents for that's worth about $70 loose. $120 boxed. Its crazy what people will pay for G1 KOs.

    Yeah, that's... really insane. At the end of the day, they're basically counterfeit goods, and yet some of them sell for more than legitimate copies. It blows my mind.

    It's a shame too, because I really want Minerva. It seems she's, on average, more expensive than a pre-Encore G1 Fort Max, just for example. And she yellows easily, so I don't want to pay several thousand dollars for something that will yellow easily.

    I suppose I'm just repeating myself now but it's a real downer how much some of these things cost, and that even the knock-offs are expensive (or, in some cases, non-existent).

    On another note, I found that KO on eBay when I was on there today using the same search as last time ("Transformers Minerva" under "All"). I'm concerned that perhaps certain eBay listings aren't appearing for me until a certain period of time has elapsed because I'm outside of the US, but I only have anecdotal evidence to even make such a claim to begin with.

    Nobody actually paid those insane prices for the KOs, did they?

    If so, mine are going on the chopping block ASAP.

    This one wasn't even complete!
    Screenshot_20161103-105134.png ive seen the Raiden sell for $120. Its seriously just an OK set. I guess it's better than paying for a Takara one.

    Have all those KOs...

    I remember picking up Raiden for $9.99 when he first came out and for around $15 picked up a loose original version of the green guy :)

    I think those GoShooter and Minerva KOs were around $50 for the pair and were available forever...plus reprolabels gave out free stickers for them!

    Can't believe they go for so much now!!

    (I switched out the dark blue with the light blue from a junker Siren and painted them both)
