    Any update on how it's going Chrome Magnus? For the bad sellers you can add creation.shop as I tried to get a YM Thrust from them before Xmas and it never turned up. Since been refunded and he's disappeared off eBay.

    Looks like he has put some items up, and has put up deathclaw again for even cheaper, but it looks too cheap. I messaged him and still haven't received a response.

    I messaged him on 2/3 about it and he replied late last night (2/4) and said the package will be sent to the post office on Monday. We'll see.

    Just received my primo vitalis kit from suncn2010. My second purchase from him that's come through. Well packed in foam wrapped in tape. Arrived within 2 weeks of ordering which was impressive considering I thought it would be caught up in the cny jam.

    Just received my KO MP28 Hot Rod 2.0 from seller 0599893 in just a day short of 2 weeks. This seller is legit.
    @botfan please add 0599893 to the good list. Thanks.

    Quick update. On 2/3 I sent a message to weixiaolu2013 asking about the tracking number not working. On 2/4 he responded apologizing and said the package will be delivered to his local PO the next day 2/5. The tracking number became finally became active on 2/6 with "Acceptance" status. On 2/7 the updates showed that it processed through facility in Beijing EMS, China. That's it so far. So now I know it left China on 2/7. Just waiting for it to reach US soil now.

    Same here. Received KO CP-25 Tracks from 0599893 and MP-28 Hot Rodimus from Haizhao2011. Both shipped together so I'm assuming its the same seller. Also bought and received KO Streak from lcukboy and arrived safely.

    I wanted to leave positive feedback for 0599893 but I can't since Ebay removed his KO MP28 listing. He's legit so I don't know why his feedback is private when it comes to listing the name of the product.


    NOTE:
    When I have an experience with a seller who lists all his feedback as private, to help others out I copy & paste name of the item verbatim as the seller puts it in the feedback comments. Then I leave a quick comment in the next sentence. I advise everyone else to do the same as it helps other prospective customers. This is a good workaround to sellers who make their feedback private.

    Really great idea. I usually leave the name of the item in all my feedback since eBay removes the link after a period of time. I will do this too!

    On a side note, thinking of these three KOs. I would really love to know the story behind Masterpiece KOs. I find it so intriguing. Case in point, what accounts for the box designs?

    I recently got these three. All have different designs. Hot Rodimus is, for all intents and purposes, an exact replica of the official Takara box. Tracks is Takasa Tony (seems like the original KO branding). Now Streak is Tanaka Tony Robot Formers. I had another KO Streak labeled Takasa Tony last year.

    I would just love to know what goes on behind the scenes with all of these KOs. Maybe I need to post this in the KO thread?

    Yeah a lot of people seem to be clamoring for a LoudPedal KO. A Road Rage KO is out already right? I'm hoping for Ratchet too.
