    Is $25 usd a good price for the Raiden KO giftset? I saw one today at a flea market for $25 and I thought it was a little steep for the ko so I passed. Then I checked ebay and that seems to be the going price, plus the high shipping from asia of course. Would anyone pay that much for one?

    I wouldn't pay that much IIRC Biglots gets them in around X-mas every year for $5.99

    well I also know the quality isnt worth $25 since I have the defensor, devastator and superion sets. I think i paid $4.99 each for them at Walgreens (a drug store) around X-mas time one year.

    I have it.. It is slightly better quality than superion and such.. Only problem I have is one leg in the combined mode will not stay 'locked on'. Basically if you pick up the combined form one of the legs slips off. No biggie as long as he stands still.

    I like raiden. It is different from the other combiners and is a nice set. I say about $15 is worth it for that set. $25 is a little iffy. But consider how much it is to buy the real thing by comparison.

    It's a bit steep. Keep your eyes open and a better deal will surface.

    I always feel that if it is worth it to you to pay a certain amount then it is worth it.. To some people they only will pay $5.. I'd pay $15-20.. It is worth it to me because i will never lay hands on a real one as they cost too much..

    It's should'nt even be sold for anymore than $10.
    But to it's defense, it's one of the best TF ko's ever made.

    Digital-Toys were giving them away as freebees during their "Spend $25 or more" deal they had. Maybe they have some more leftover that they'll sell you for a few bucks.

    BBTS has him listed for 35$ :lol , but it's a pic of Sixtrain

    Some cool member here (sorry, I forgot who) sent me one for FREE last year. I can see why he didn't charge me, it took some work to get it to merge correctly.

    After a few mods and some paint, however, it really is a nice KO, but not worth $25. I'd say $10 tops.
