    Eh? What does one of these go for?
    Not planning on buying one. Just want to know. But if the price is right, might consider getting one towards the end of the year. :drunk

    I've seen 'em for about 75 + shipping. Seems like none of them have the outer trailer stickers applied like mine did.

    I bought mine when they first came out couple years ago or whatever, I think I paid 100 shipped.

    Thanks for the info. I will wait. I can't spill $75 on a KO figure yet.

    How's the quality? How do you like it, Optimus Scourge?

    I have a couple of the regular colored KOs, and they are far better than any other KO out there. In fact, the quality is like 95% of an official Hasbro/Takara product.

    It's really not too bad, it is a little loose here and there and some areas don't perfectly line up, but I wasn't going to open my Jafcon Prime, so, to me, it is acceptable. displays great, and the fact that it was cast using original French molds is a bonus.

    Exactly

    :p 

    Mmm... That's good to hear. I totally got turned off cause the price was too high for a KO. But if the quality is up there with the originals, I will seriously consider getting him. Awesome! Thanks!

    So, just out of curiosity what the cost of a "real" Jafcon Prime?

    $300+ if not more by now, if it's MISB and decent.
