    Got some questions about these Transformers KT PVCs I just ordered from BBTS. Check it out:
    http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=TAK10628&mode=retail&picture=in
    1. Is there a secret 6th figure in this set? I seem to recall a hand that fits perfectly onto MP Prime's arm, with a Sparkplug or Spike figure in it.
    2. Check out this listing for a set of 12:
    http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=TAK10098&mode=retail&picture=out
    So it's $45 for 12, or $37 for just the 5? Doesn't it seem weird that for 8 extra bucks you get 7 more PVC figures? It makes me wonder if the complete set I bought is actually 10 figures, which would just be crazy. So what's the deal?

    I think that hand w/Spike in it was a chase, i remember seeing it but I'm not positive it was from the KT set. Though a case of 12 of these suggests they're blind packed, and if so then there being a chase figure is pretty well guaranteed.

    It looks like the complete set is just the main five, while the case is 12 blind boxes in which you're not certain to get all 5 figures.

    I think Spike on hand figure was a chase in Histroy collection. The price difference is because of the display case, I assume. The ones you see are the whole lineup of KT figure collection :)

    I was under the impression that the hand was part of the KT collection, but I did get the "KT Collection Complete" box set and it wasn't in there. Either because they wouldn't package the chase in there, thus reducing the chase, or it was aprt of the history set. Either way I really want that hand, I thought it was the neatest thing when I first saw it.

    The hand was indeed a "chase" piece for History, and has become quite scarce, in no doubt due to the interactivity with MP Prime.

    The KT figures as a whole must have been WAY overproduced, as they're very plentiful on Yahoo Japan, and don't sell, even at less than $1 apiece.

    The only other KT variant out there is an attractive pewter version of the Prime bust that was a convention or magazine exclusive of some kind. You can get it for around $2 on Yahoo Japan if you can't find it domestically.

    EDIT: clarification

    *been googling*
    I was going to add "silver metalic" KT Convoy but you beat me to it :D  It came with a magazine.

    And here's a History collection back of the box picture

    I have only got some gray bottlecap figures, but they are much smaller than KT ones.

    the spike with hand is a chase piece from the:-

    Transformers History Collection.

    just wanted to reiterate that.
    and yeah the prices have been plummeting for them. that seems a little high to pay for the set.

    As was just confirmed... the hand is from the History collection, not the KT. Buying the KT case will most definitely not get you a hand.

    But I'll clap for you. :p

    Right, I should have put a paragraph break in my post to show that. Sorry if I contributed to any confusion. I'll fix.

    ummm. whats with the fig of a little girl bathing? weird. Anyway I think there is a gray Prime chase fig in this set, so ordering the case might not be a bad idea.

    Yep, KT collection is designed by Yuki Oshima, of KissPlay "fame". Guess he just couldn't control his urge.

    I have this collection.. There are only 5 figures to the set and compared to the normal PVC figures that have been released these are super detailed.. The one in the bath is "AI" from robots in disguise.. Shes taking a bath and prime is spying on her and Sky Byte is peeking out of the water spitting water from his mouth lol , pretty silly really .. But the others are very cool ..

    On prime you push a button on his back and his chest opens and the matrix slides forward.
    On rumble and frenzy you can move there pile drivers in and out ..

    the Devistator one is a re-creation of the scene from the movie when he is tearing open the wall of autobot city..

    Thats about it .. I wish they would make more of these because like i said there so much more detailed then the other PVC's.. I bought a case of 12 on ebay hoping to get more then one set from the deal but i only got one complete set.. I only got 1 rumble in the case .. I gave one almost complete set to my nephew and the others i put up for sale.. I have 2 left - a Frenzy and a Devistator if anyone is intrested you can check my sales page.
