    Having a G1 minty Metroplex and Shockwave will rock. And at around $150-200 how can anyone pass that up?

    the devastator giftset is rumored at $200+

    the rumored shockwave is ?



    I'm almost certain Metroplex is in the works. I've seen pressed parts and bits.

    $200+ for Devy? No thanks. You can part an original one together for way less than that and get a box too.

    Actually, I was thinking Shockwave would be $70-80 and Metroplex $90-120.

    They tend to charge based on size ... I'm almost positive that Shockwave will arrive at an introductory price of $149.99 w. $30-ish for shipping.

    If Mirage is pulling $70-ish shipped, and Shockwave is much larger than Mirage ... it only makes sense.



    in before someone says, "they should charge -$15 for these!!11!!!11". : P

    And this is why I'm glad I have two of Metroplex, Shockwave and Devastator.

    Yes, I'm bragging. :lol

    i know for a fact that Metroplex is 40$ wholesale, before being shipped from china. Shipping will probably double that price. and then there is dealer mark-up, so it'll probably cost around 120$+shipping for us in the U.S.

    Mtroplex has no die-cast, so that should help the price out.

    Glad I already got my Metroplex. Didn't cost me anywhere near that much. However If I ever see that Sky Linx KO that was talked about on here a few weeks ago I'm gonna have to go smash the 'ol piggy bank.

    Only way I'd buy the KO Shockwave was if it cost as much as the existing one that's already on ebay.

    Also, wasn't there supposed to be a legit Sky Lynx reissue on the works? Or what happened to that?

    Who the fuck is going to pay $120 for a Metroplex knock off? You can get complete originals for half that and boxed ones for little more. Hell, even less than that on occasion.

    Sky Lynx is an actual reissue (first-issue of him in japan, actually) on the way from Takara, not a KO.

    I got a MIB 99% complete Metroplex for $120 of ebay... so the K.O really needs to be below that.

    I wouldn't mind ordering a case of these, or any of the other high quality KOs for that matter, at "wholesale" (if there is such a thing for KOs) just to get the better price on em. Keep one and let the rest go in Junkion at cost, but trying to find out where you can orde em from is damn near impossible.

    I do remeber someone doing that with Swoop when he came out, but for the life of me I can't find that thread and don't remeber who it was to ask where they got them from.

    There's no way that I would pay anything close to those prices for a KO regardless of the quality. I'm actually hesitant to pay that much for the originals, honestly...

    A KO release of Sky Lynx was mentioned alongside Metroplex and Shockwave, from one of Spencer's posts elsewhere on the forum. Crappy as hell timing, but on the other hand there isn't a release date for Tomy's Sky Lynx reissue yet.

    $200 for a Devastator?!? WTF, good luck with that.

    I want the KO Shockwave. I want the 84 cars too. But the prices on these things, blow.
