    I am looking to buy some KOs and I was wondering how good of a seller this site is? I hear this site mentioned but I never hear much about their service. Please don't start a KO ethics war, I would just like to have some info on their reliability.

    yes he is reliable. lots of members get pre release stuff from him and he also has some of the best, coolest, weirdest and oddest KOs out there and offers great prices and the option to ship loose.

    Totally Reliable...Highly recommend doing business.

    The KOs are quite impressive...oversized are killer!!!

    Sign up, go for it. No regrets here.

    This was getting close to being a zombie thread, but I do have to revive it to completely disagree with the recommendations provided above. I've added feedback to the owners thread here detailing the transaction. In short, if things go well you're fine. If they don't, things get a little dicey. Look through his feedback thread, my experience is not unique.

    considering where he ships from, i think that i got my order in practically no time at all.
    he was swift and the packing was quite well done.

    i have no beef with KOToys and the service.

    You can also read lots of posts, even see pictures of what KOToys offers in the Official Knockoff thread in this forum.

    i still love my Oversized Legends Devastator and Deluxe Class Ransack i got from there.

    Add one to the list of people getting burned. Screwed up order and poorly packed, promised me something, never followed through, stopped answering my emails.

    In my experiences, I can say that's safe and good to order from them... but the service is too slow !!

    got to say for the record...i have ordered from him 5 or 6 times...always well packaged....and shipping from china can take a little time since he uses air parcel post...or did...i see that his web site states EMS shipping...so that will arrive alot faster...when i ordered...always got my items within 30 days...which is not bad considering it is coming from china.

    I ordered from there, got the items in a very timely manner. However my KO Metrotitan was missing a shoulder antenna(in it's place was a KO Alternator Prowl arm). I emailed them, but have received no response. So, yes they're a real dealer and ship quickly, but not much for customer service beyond that in my experience.

    I had a good overall experience, though I do see reports of people getting screwed (not sure if that's that they didn't receive initial shipment or if there were problems that weren't rectified after). I did have to track him down on MSN messenger to get some replacements, but once I did that I got the replacements really quickly.

    I had success when I ordered my KO Sunstreaker, Mirage, and Wheeljack. Took about 2.5 weeks from time of purchase till I received the package. The box was okay, the foam he uses inside made a mess of things but over all all three were 100% complete, the boxes were perfect, and the toy's were fantastic. I'd order from them/him again in the future.

    The removable shoulder antenna/gun/whatever was missing from the bag of accessories, but the Prowl arm was in the bag.
