    Do you see a Hasbro logo anywhere on the packaging?

    And it says "Transformer" (singular).

    It's a KO.

    Thanks for the info. I skimmed briefly through highendtfs KO list and didn't see it listed so I wasn't sure even though the packaging makes it kind of obvious.

    Is this a new KO or one that has been around for a while? Anyone know anything about the quality of the bots?

    I assume it's not listed because it doesn't directly copy an existing packaging.

    That set has been around for a few months now. When they first popped up you could snag it for like $80. I highly recommend it: the quality is fantastic, and it's the only reasonable way to acquire the Japanese-only Headmaster molds. If you would like some pictures of the heads feel free to ask!

    IMHO, not worth paying insane amounts of money for the originals nowadays. :D 
    These will do nicely, but not for the time-being for me.

    Thats a great set. hasbro/ takara would never give us anything like this. Its still so strange how the ko or aftermarket items are more exciting than the real rotf, hasbro items. well at least the 2010 stuff is getting better.
