    Yup. At least not yet anyway. I remember a thread where there was a company that showed a silhouette implying they were making an attempt. But I don't think anyone has had any updates.

    Igear ( a 3rd party company ) tweaked the MP-03 mold a bit to rid the original seeker of all the tail kibble. As for the MP-11 mold , I'm 99.99% sure it hasn't been KO'd.

    I'm just asking because I got it for $144.99 in an eBay auction where I was the only bidder.

    Was it opened an displayed? If so , I could see why. If not an it was MISB , then you got an awesome deal.

    It's probably a KO, but lucky for you I collect KOs! How about you just sell it to me for your cost and everybody wins. ;)

    Hopefully it's not one of the preorders for the re-issue that's supposedly coming out next year. I came damn close to ordering the one for $140 shipped till at the last second I noticed it was a preorder...

    the one I purchased stated "pre-order" but it actually wasn't. It was paid on 5/6, shipped on 5/9, and received on 5/13. Shipped from Taipei to Hawaii.

    OP,

    Did you notice on yours the swirls on the grey plastic and imperfect paints? I had the same feeling as you I guess about it being a KO because mines has swirls in the grey and imperfect red paint job...

    I need to check...

    The red paint job looks good and I can't see any swirls in the grey.

    There were no coin in mine though.
