    damn, when they say reproduction, they mean reproduction.

    that looks immaculate, from the pics at least.

    For the box, spacer, and foam ... they were asking $84.99 + shipping to the States not too long ago. In no way is this a "value", but just random information.

    If you only wanted the figures, the cheap-o, dollar store, Big Lots special is just as good. That ultra KO devastator (that's been around for years) is rock solid.

    Hmm, that's about £70, for 6 hard to find (in good nick) figures in stunningly well reproed packaging

    Gonna have to think about it, maybe for my birthday...

    Cheers for the info Grock. :thumb

    I wouldn't pay that much for an official re-release, let alone a knock off.

    If I didn't have two sets of Constructicons already (though neither set is in perfect shape, both having been played with for years), I'd be all over this.

    Regardless of price, at least they are honest about it being a KO. It could be worse...a LOT worse.

    I don't know if it's the same guy, but they've been selling the box, insert, instructions and stickers for a while now. Made it hard when I was looking for or an original one last year because several people put their original toys in the reproduction box. At least it's an easy tell as to which is the repro box.

    hey, that is no surprise actually...i rather than pay original G1 Constructicon with a same price. Even there were no box, So what! But i'll think about KO Reflector...hihii.

    I always though the boxed devastator was the most attractive box. I might get this if someone can verfy for me that it's quality is the same/close to g1.

    I have the crappy knock off from a 5 years ago...and it's quite poor, and missized...I found that out when the hands of the KO were too big to hold the original g1 guns.

    Wow, it feels like half the G1 line is now available in MISB KO boxes...

    No wonder Hasbro is stepping up their legal position on these and cracking down on stores. If Hasbro takes their legal position to the extreme then the fandom has only themselves to blame.

    I do not understand why people are selling these knockoffs at high prices. Are they really good quality?
