    My thoughts exactly. I'd prefer the real deal, but I don't have an extra organ or two handy to sell off.

    Besides, I usually customize most of my stuff in some way, so I don't mind picking up a KO of these guys.

    So you passed on them when BBTS had them for about $30 apiece?

    10$ shipped. Even I would have bought the original crappy ones.

    Unfortunately this is the one Insecticon I held back on due to funds, and by doing so ended up missing out completely. Now everyone either sells him no with the other two, or for a small fortune on eBay. :\

    if this is a CHMS KO (not sure), then theres a good chance that its crap. looks ok in the photos though. for all the mods i did to them, i would have been fine with a KO as long as it was decent quality.

    So this be Igear again or what?

    I would be wary of a KO of any of these guys though. They're pretty solid with how they are constructed, but anything less than what FP put into them would be worry some for quite a few parts. And who goes around knocking off other fan companies? It's one thing to KO a giant like Hasbro/Takara, its another to be taking the piss out of another fan company. At least this made me realize that there are sticker codes on my Ninjacon boxes for FPCore's thingy mabob. Never knew that before.

    I hope you're talking as a set...otherwise who the hell is selling the individuals for that much?

    For the record, I don't care either way. But I find it odd that it's ok for FP to steal Hasbro's IP but it's not OK to KO a FP release? As if there's some sort of honor among thieves?

    if it's 240 per piece then i could have gotten another tfc hercules if i had bought all 3 insecticons...

    They were $50 each when they came out, but then BBTS had them on sale for like $33.

    Darn. I missed it when BBTS sold it for $33. I better buy it the first chance I get now. I prefer the original rather than KO unless the KO is of decent quality.

    damn am I happy I bought my set on bbts when they had that sale goin on. I feel bad for anyone who paid over $150 for these guys I only paid I want to say only $110 ($33, $33, and $44 I believe) but I know I got one hell of a deal when I made that purchase because there was no other way I was going to get that set for any lower.

    I'm working on restocking them, and they'd be the same old price of no more than $50, so if you hang in there you might be able to find them again... :D

    WOW that was a bit of a scare. Luckily mine's legit. I'd have been disappointed had I found out he was a KO after all this time. Got him on eBay with his G1 counterpart for about 35 shipped.
