    Does anyone know if such a thing was made? Or even better, where to get one? Thanks!

    For clarification: I'm talking about the clear blue plastic one.

    It exists, but it'll probably cost you as much as a real one since that's what people are(or were) selling them as.

    Disappointing but not surprising, I guess. Thank you.

    Until recently you could get them from Chimungmung for around $35 but they seem to have stopped selling KOs apart from the G1 type. I'm sure there are other sites out there still selling them, your best bet is probably asking in the KO toys thread over in the 3rd party forum.

    Dont buy the ko. Its very fragile from the hip joints. They break easily.

    All of the KO Mirage figures have been a bust in the quality control department.

    Actually that's not true. I've owned a KO Botcon mirage and just sold off mine (the one in the pic). And no, I didn't try to pass it off as the real deal when I sold it. In fact, I sold it for only SGD15 (approx USD11) two days ago to a local collector. :)

    Other than one or two loose joints (particularly the head), which can be solved pretty easily, the rest of the figure does measure up. Holds poses well too as demonstrated in the pic.

    Wish I could find one like that! And a dealer like you!

    It's a bit of a floppy mess to tell the truth. Also the Henkei Mirage ko has bad plastic quality which cracks easily.

    Yeah they don't have the Botcon Blue one, they do have a KO of the Henkei clear one though
