    Well, the email requested that no one do it, so I was holding back on them out of respect for the sender...if a board official says it's ok, I will.

    Damn people...I am just letting you know that it's coming soon...if you are on the mailing list, you'll see the pics and the price. I didn't put them in because the seller who sent the email asked for them not to be posted on a board.

    Hell....here it is......
    $80

    Another "Hoooooly moooooly" on my part. Those look great, and judging by the pics, these are quality "replicas" like Mirage. But $80? I think $60 is a more appropriate price.

    Considering that I once got a near-complete, near-mint vintage Devastator for around 60 bucks, I'm inclined to agree.

    Me too. A very nice and complete Devastator can be had for about what these KO's sell for, I really don't see the point. :rolleyes2

    I couldnt stand knowing that i had a fake devastator in my collection, no matter how well it was duplicated.
    and i agree Houndvoice, you can go on ebay and get a REAL devastator for the price. Knocks offs, i dont get it.

    Those micromaster sets look spot on.

    Anybody care to explain the differences between the KO and originals?

    I don't know..I use Ioffer all the time, and I love the KO's. I've always had great experiences with them..I already have the original Gen-1 guys..Now I get them all nice and boxed up like.
