    Glad I sold my originals when I did. I was going to sell all of my JP Headmasters, but I missed the boat there, lol.

    If you're complaining about the paint apps, the only paint on them are the eyes, then the main bot faces, which are just silver, no painted eyes. If memory serves, my Dial had eyes that were kind of botched too. Accuracy?

    Also, the rivets were rounded on the originals.

    Oh. And these are terrible toys. If these weren't so rare, everyone would be complaining about them.

    To be fair, most of the cassettes are not the best toys ever. It's just something about them that attacts some of us collectors.

    They actually look really good too. I probably won't buy them (the only reason I ever wanted them was because they were such great collectors pieces), but I'm glad I didn't ever spend the money to get the originals.

    KOtoys has screwed over many a person (including myself to a small degree). I have a hard time believing you've never heard as much.

    I'm not taking the chance ordering from them directly. If anybody decides to do a group order let me know.

    I ordered a pair...at this point I consider it $60 donated to charity - if I happen to get the set I ordered then I'll just be pleasantly surprised.

    Ordered with Airmail. I have a general rule where I don't buy something if shipping is > 50% cost of the item. If it doesn't show, oh well, $46 is no biggie.

    I definitly want these, but I'll wait and get them from someone else, either used, or marked up, at least then I know I'll get them safely and in a timely manner.

    If i were you guys, I will be patient. The longer you wait, They will lower the price. Just like the seekers. See how they drop the price..If there not selling, the price will go down..Just my 2 cent..:thumbs2:

    They are cheap as hell. How much lower do you want them? You sound like a GI Joe collector.


    I did a review years ago on Tfans, back when I was still languishing over there.

    Unfortunately, im not getting nothing from KOTOYS because I think he doesnt want me selling. I guess, im cutting into his profit margin..but oh well, I dont care. I can tell you one thing, 1 in 9 you would get a damage or defective toy from him. It will be hard to get a replacement. Communication is bad. This is my knowledge.

    No point in blaming you. The reason I bought from you was because I don't want to buy from him. I just won't buy at all if he's the only option. You aren't hurting his profits, you're moving more product. His customer service hurts his profits.

    IG, dropping some knowledge.

    I don't get how selling to someone else wholesale hurts his profits. If he's not making a profit selling to someone else, I can't imagine why he would sell them then.

    Anywhos, I took the risk. First time I've ever bought from KO Toys. Hopefully everything goes okay.
