    Fascinating development. I still find it sickeing that the market is supporting the high prices these KOs command.

    Beyond the Swoop KO whch ones command any kind of "high price"? I myself bough the Stunticon KO set for $10+shipping. More than resonable for a KO set IMO.

    Do we really need more KO Devastators?

    on G1 cards or a giftset box?




    I feel bad for the people who actually have these. A Dev giftbox set just went for $2,500+ on eBay not too long ago.

    I believe everything after the Prime has been reverse engineered. That's why the joints are sometimes a bit loose.

    Takara only presses off of existing molds.




    The second people stop buying the KO's is the second they stop making them. The Swoop didn't do as well as the Prime did, so that's why you're not seeing these in every color imaginable.

    What does it matter how they are packaged? Any serious collector will still know they are fakes, and will likely avoid them.

    There are plenty of Dev KOs floating around out there already. I want some affordable KOs of bots that have never been reproduced, like Sunstreaker.

    i'm guessin' it's cuz he was just too expensive. an official Takara release would have ebeen like $40ish bucks, i'm not paying $70+ for a KO. (nicely done as he was)

    I thought it was rumored that the Japanese Dino-Cassettes were next?
    Anyway, for the Autobot Cars fans, good for them, Mirage seems to be one thats hard to find complete and in good condition.

    Myself, Im hoping for the Monsterbots, bring on Doublecross KO

    They'd have to get them first.... they're far from cheap, and a fairly low priority to many. Seems rather unlikely.

    I heard about Grimlock and the Constructicons personally, Mirage is news to me.



    There's a lot of these in progress. I keep seeing new KO parts surface too. Everything from Omega Supreme bits to Menasor's sword.

    Maybe we can finally get bits to complete the Abominus and Menasor sets that each have 2 Computron limbs, then maybe Scattorshot and combiner bits?

    The Menasor parts all existed at one point, as there was a KO with all the correct components.

    Just in the wrong colours, oh well.

    Also, A thought just hit me, given how expensive Headmaster Heads are, wouldnt it make sense to make KO's them?

    I mean on Ebay, I've seen G1 Skorponok complete and in fantastic condition, just missing Zarak, go for about £15 at the highest, when Zarak on his own fetches £20-30.

    Well, it would be nice as long as they're making a KO version of Mirage if they attach his torso to his waist with a thicker pin this time, dammit!
