Does anyone know why its down?
Try back later. They seem to do a lot of maintenance on that site.
That or they're shut down.
there doing maintance
Maintance or they got hit by Operation Payback.
yeah i was wondering about this no categories no forum big prob
Mike had a message there before it went down that they'd be down for 48-72 hours for server maintenance. So no conspiracy theories needed...
Yeah, plain and simple, maintenance !!!
Hopefully XD. Just glad I dont have any pending orders w him atm ^^
I went on there lastnight to check out the new products and it was down.
The sites been down for about 2-3 days, however it should be back up soon.
Oh no!, I really hope that site is ok, otherwise I wont get anymore high quality ko toys, or news. That site is my main source for collecting transformers. The ko and takara encores is what got me into tf again. I will be sick if they dont come back up soon.
hmm....yokattaweb seems to be down as well for those who buy from them, so you know.
kotoys is back up now...well at least part of it.
Wellsir, if I had to guess, I would say Hasbro legal has laid into them with a big flaming chainsaw. Because it's back up, and:
"The Pre Release and Transformers Section in general will be REMOVED FROM THE FORUM, There will no longer be a TRANSFORMERS part of the FORUM. All Photos of Un Released Toys will be removed and will no longer be posted."
Looks like he's going to lose alot of hits from now on..no longer able to thrive on exposure through pictures of pre-release figures or making good money off of them. Just guessing here but I think a big percentage of the visitors just want to see the new, official figures.
Still, for people who are into buying KOs and want to do business with KO Toys, seems that part is unharmed - so that should be a relief to them.
Is it me or does he sound a little bitter?
Hah, no. That's apparently just how he is.
Never mind that he's dealing in stolen property and clumsily revealing business sensitive information (hey, don't get me wrong! Love to get previews of upcoming toys, but that's what it is) - nothing ever seems to be his fault, and the whole world is out to get him.
Journalism and freedom of speech my ass - it was fun while it lasted, but Hasbro/Paramount/Michaelbayspolosions have every right to shut him down. Hell, he's living in China for chrissakes, if he likes freedom of speech he should move out of that country. Oh wait..then they can also shut him down for dealing in KOs..
I'm done with this clown.
I like how Mike thinks he's running a legit and honest business.
Wouldn't be the first time he lost his rag.
