I'm haven't heard anything about the quality of KO's cassette tapes, but I think this thread needs to be moved to the KO thread...

A couple of stores - Ages 3 and Up is the only one I know for sure, but I think others are looking into the matter - have their own preorders for the Ratbat/Frenzy set, and for a lot less than that auction (A3&U had it for what, $17?). With luck, stores like them will import the Swoop KO as well, and make it more affordable.

The KO cassette quality is really supposed to be high-grade stuff, as these figures are being made with actual G1 molds (French ones, so I've heard).

We made a new KO thread and it's been stickied.

I think the $1 bid is the actual reserve price not the actual pid price for the KO Ratbat, but the $1,000 for the KO Swoop is ridiculous...

i believe the swoop price is intended to be ridiculous. Its probably just like that to get attention until he knows what the actual price will be.

I think that Swoop auction is a fake (note the category listing as ???, I don't think E-Bay would allow that). I have heard that a Swoop KO is coming but not a whole lot of details.
