    Hey guys,

    I'm looking to buy a G1 colored Reximus Prime and Wei Jiang M01D Battle Damage Prime.

    Seems like stock has dried up all over the place.

    Anyone know what's going on?

    There was a rumour that the KOers of Reximus Prime went out of business.

    Ben on the FB group / toybento posted that Reximus was riddled with QC faults recently like scratched paint and even a missing Dino mode head(!).

    Said he was no longer going to offer Reximus but would still help out people who had orders in with any parts as long as he and his suppliers could.

    Not sure about the M01D as I think that was a limited run anyway.

    Take a chance on eBay or a private FB group is probably your best bet for either.

    That would be sad. I wonder if it's because of QC issues or because of using the Autobot logo.

    I've been talking to Ben and he told me the same thing. Thank you for the post.

    Thanks man. I'll take a look there!

    A general note- KO's tend to not be on the market that long and once they're gone you often don't see them much anywhere. You would think that with the more premium 3P oriented KO's like Reximus and Wei Jiang that might be less true, but who knows.

    When a 3P sells out, you can usually find some on ebay if nowhere else. I've had less luck tracking down KO's once they stop being readily available.

    Don't expect them to last more than 4-6 months unless they have multiple production batches.

    The exception are the KO car bots, but they may might have too many batches.

    The Reximus at the price TFD has it for is a bit rich if you ask me. For a couple more bucks - I could ship you a brand new factory sealed FT Grinder.

    I do love me my Reximus but I don't think he is worth paying $160 for - especially now that Grinder is out (kicking ass and taking names) and the GP Grassor on the way. I think I paid $120-ish shipped for my Reximus originally. Add on another $20 for Delta Magnus hands plus another $10 or so for @jream wrist adapters and i was golden.

    I see TFD is sold out again of the M01D version. If you're in Canada, I've got a spare one brand new if anyone is looking...

    Haven't been able to find the original Reximus Prime thread but my supplier came across a small batch of the G1 colored version (black plastic, silver paint) so have a couple in stock if anyone is still looking. He said they are good qc wise. Comes with Takara looking box and includes free shipping worldwide for this brute.

    Cost and order info here..

    Gonna keep trying to find the original thread.

    I don't see it listed on your price thread, did you forget to add it or was I too fast to check? :) 

    I have the comic coloured blue and silver Reximus and I think he's a good figure, he stands alongside my Grinder and I'm happy to have both.
