    Just thought I'd share something funny I saw over the weekend at the toy section of a reputable departmental store in Singapore. Pics were taken with a phone camera so pardon the mediocre quality.

    Conversion METALS CAR! Check out Laserwave without the Mazda logo and a convincing-looking BTA Alert.

    OMFG is that a WHITE HOUND?! I must have him!

    RP: S$29.90 ea (I think, which works out to about US$21). What a steal!

    What do you think? ;)

    At least they come in robot mode so it saves the trouble of trying to transform (and in the process break them) them, are they all cheap plastic or do they have the bt diecast?

    I'm not sure, I didn't even open them to see. But I'm pretty sure it's cheap plastic, I really don't expect KOs to have nice die-cast metal parts.

    Haha, yeah but I think it's the light reflection plus my phone camera which makes the packaging look crummier than it really is.

    Have you guys ever heard of a thing called ebay? Cause these KOs have been on sale there for the last couple of years. Fairly sure the "Metals" ones are diecast.

    Well, I don't really go looking for KOs on eBay so I wouldn't know.
