    That's great. Do you have pics in robot form?

    It is exactly the same as the energon/super link mold, but I'll take some pics this weekend for you. :thumb

    Mustang Ford...is that a "lost" G1 character? Sounds like a name TT would use...Lambor, Ligier, and now Mustang Ford!

    Is this the one?

    I haven't used the want-list feature at SirToys yet, but if you provide the above link, perhaps they would be willing to act as a purchasing agent, for a reasonable fee of course.

    Otherwise, you could use a specialist purchasing agent like Taobaoring.com (carefully read the section about domestic postage, commission and international shipping costs before deciding on a purchase).

    Good searching, but that Springer is ever so slightly bigger than the official. That ko standing next to it is actually official sized. Why would they only upsize it half a inch?

    Nice! Of all the motorcycle molds that is probably one of my faves. I love the gold and extra pink to boot! Definitely shelf worthy.

    Right!?! I was theorizing they might have associated the fact that since his name was "Ranger" in the show, maybe he was named Mustang Ford because the Ford motor company used to make Ranger pickup trucks? But Mustangs are just way cooler. Who knows?

    At least they made it easy to distinguish from the genuine article.

    Kind of annoying he sells Cliffjumper, Hubcap and Bumblebee for $15.99, but the KO Bumblejumper costs $149.99. I paid less for the real loose Bumblejumper I own!

    Any rumblings for the final price on these? I'm thinking I could offload my generations Metroplex for the OS and then I wouldn't feel bad about grabbing TW Fort Max, since the mold would no longer be shared in my collection.

    Haven't heard anything about the final price yet. I just saw this today. The deposit is $30. So It's gotta be $200 minimum, $300 max?

    Yes that looks like it. Love the Bumblebee TF4 box ^o^.
    Yes there is a video review on the sir toys link. It is actually a large enough to go into the MP area to scale with my MP Blurr etc. The video review and rating give the KO very high marks up there with the original.

    Good internet grep for that and good advice on asking sir toys to be the intermediate.

    I noticed that tf-toy has this and they seem like they are a gather and send type shop.. place is too unbelievable (they have it all for 1/3 the normal price) for me to send them money though.

    Good thinking to see if sirtoys would do that. I bet they would if I made it worth while with a big haul of their instock stuff.
