    I had heard a rumor that Takara moved their production from China to Vietnam because their molds were being stolen for KO. I don't know if Star saber happened before or after this but it wouldn't be out of the question for it to be a ko

    I'm a little late, but I got my KO AOE Nemesis Prime today. To be honest, I've never been a fan of the Bayformers, but I managed to get this one off of aliexpress for $13. I am very happy I got it. It pegs together as well or better than an official. The only complaint that I have is that the right arm is a little loose, but I figure that I can tighten that up.

    so, just to be clear, it's either not a ko, or it's good enough quality, that it might as well be the real thing?

    BBTS is still asking 170, they're my usual go-to shop, unless i'm re-ordering from HLJ or amiami.

    And just in case anyone is wondering about that seller, I've bought from them twice and both times everything went perfect.

    These have been available on Sirtoys for a while now. I own the Bumblebee and it's amazing, I highly recommend!

    I have a few and they aren't bad at all! They are missing some articulation, but decent as a whole.

    Hey you guyyyyyyys! I got some really cool KO's in the mail and a few more on their way here, stay tuned for pics and reviews in the coming days. It's sure to be a treat for anyone who loves the obscure g1 era/style stuff. In the meantime people should post some pics of their faves and share with the hungry masses. Break bread yo!

    What do people know about the KO Minerva and Goshooter? These have had reprolabels applied.

    They were sort of pricey. Enough to feel guilty. Lol. But I'm in love so screw it. From the only review I could find, They're also rare.
