    Hey guys. I'm looking to get some of the G1 cassette tapes. But man the prices on eBay are sky high. Are there any KO options for these? If so, do you know where they are available?

    There's some nice Masterpiece KO cassettes out there. But if you're looking for actual G1 form, there's a KO oversized Soundwave that comes with a Ravage & Laserbeak. I haven't one on the way, when it arrives I can share my opinion on it all

    Thank you for the masterpiece idea. The great thing about those is that they are G1 size. I would like some of the Dino cassettes though. Like Overkill and Slugfest. Anyone know where to get some of those?

    Just did my first Sirtoys order. (V2 KO Herc)

    I ordered on the 15th, the cutoff for getting shipped before New Year's. I've heard good things. Can't wait.

    Funny story, I actually saw these as well....at SEA WORLD in san diego. They had three different ones, the dolphin, the orca, and a white one...thing. I laughed. My wife laughed, my daughter wanted em, I said no. Forgot I had skybite, wished I had gotten orca. Shoulda listened to the 3 year old.

    See if Paul @ SirToys can get you one first. If not, seek out eBay seller Bababobo^. They're the only Chinese seller I trust.

    I had a question I didn't know where else to post:
    Does anyone have a pic of the PE Purple hands on KO Herc? I saw somebody had the black ones on a ROH set, just curious as to how far off the purples were.

    I second this - Bababobo is always super fast and reliable. I usually have my order within 7 days of placing the order. Very trustworthy.

    4th'd! Been buying from that seller for a long time, both ko and official and he has never done me wrong. Had a minor issue with 1 figure and he sent me a whole new 1 no charge or questions.

    Dollarama. It's a Canadian discount chain. You can't throw a rock without hitting one in most major Canadian cities, and they have SHELVES FULL of Bloodthirsty War Dolphin.


    There was a knockoff of the G1 two-packs on card with all plastic parts back in like... 2004-2005, right before the big wave of g1 bootlegs hit. I thought they were surprisingly good quality, and they were close to, if not the same size as the originals, with the same colors. Don't know if you can still find them though.

    Just got in my first Sirtoys order today.
    It was the Diecast RiD Grimlock and Movie Lockdown.

    Pretty much echo everyone else on RiD Grimlock. He's great.
    Mine had the same misassembly that ubertenorman's had with the arm rods being on the wrong sides. Luckily they aren't pinned so it's easy to fix.

    Lockdown's great too, but his original figure didn't really have any problems for me. I just wanted bigger versions of these figures since they're some of my favorites.
