BUYER AWARE! KO ULTIMATE OPTIMUS PRIME YEAR OF THE DRAGON ASIA EXCLUSIVE

Motto: "I once pooped an Energon Cube!"
Weapon: Dino-Missiles
Whilst browsing 3rd party and KO specialist website Chimungmung I came across this little beauty.
It appears the recent Asia release of the Ultimate Optimus Prime Year Of The Dragon redeco has been knocked off and will be available via the usual suspects.

Odd that this piece has been knocked off so close to the Amazon exclusive release!
This is listed as available on Chimungmung but not available on Amazon, priced at $45.00 (plus $25.00 shipping) compared with Amazon at $84.99 (delivered).
Worth noting is Chimungmung, to reduce shipping costs will ship unboxed/loose but with their price being so close to Amazons who will ship with packaging, it makes me wonder if Chimungmung are overpricing slightly?

Check out pictures from Tonys website.

Quite fitting. If I collected KOs I'd get this out of pure irony.

I wish they would pick better figures to KO, like deluxe Leadfoot.

A Chinese Knock off of a Chinese exclusive? :lol:


Thankfully I have no interest in this "polished" turd.
Won't have to ever worry about it.
