    Please do not hotlink. Though this is interesting news if true. Would have preferred they were reissued though. Official or bust.

    If there's decent quality repro dino cassettes my heart will explode like a lurker under a chainsaw bayonette.


    (Or to put it another way i'll be very happy).

    I'd quite like repaints of the other combiner cassettes too - perhaps in reverse colours.

    I need only the dinocassettes and I need a reputable seller to buy them from.

    Oh wow, I so hope this is true. As much as news of a possible Fort Max KO was cool, I'd still prefer an original of that figure.

    The Dinocassette KOs on the other hand are an instant buy. Specially if they are good quality KOs. I wonder what the pricing on them would be. They're pretty small so costs shouldnt be excessive like something along the lines of a Fort Max, however their aftermarket prices are extremely high, so I wonder if they'd price them closer to a reasonable markup from their cost or price them at a reasonable price in comparison to vintage figures.

    DAYYY-UMMMMMM!!! I always figured they'd never get an actual reissue so this is the next best thing.

    I'm also wondering if they'd mark it up bit because of market demand (or price it closer to the other KO G1 cassettes). Don't see being priced too high though, considering the KO Headmasters sold at a "reasonable" price

    I just hope the KOs will somehow bring down the price of the originals by a fair bit.

    That would be the sole reason why I wanted these to happen, just so that the originals would become more affordable. :lol

    well, im not a supporter of K.O.'s but in the case where they start reproducing hard to find or rare items I might be willing to buy them.

    Will definitely get them if this is true. Hope it's not another Grand/Fort Max fiasco.
