KOtoys has an image posted on their site regarding new casette KO's. Some of the outlines indicate the rare dino casettes.

This is where we find out they're actually a bit rubbish.

Still, I'm happy.

Can't wait! I've wanted to get these guys for a long time but the only samples I have ever come across on eBay are $1000 - 1500! I will get this set for sure!

Friggin'. Sweet.

I might not buy them from KO Toys, but these bad boys will definately be mine when they're released. But I think I'll still get a vintige BeastBox and GrandSlam instead of the KOs of those.

So this raises an interesting question: are these molds the originals that someone's gotten their hands on, or are they reverse engineered?

Either way, I'll be getting the Dino Cassettes. The others I plan on getting at Botcon.

I am, surprisingly, totally down with these. Primarily the dino cassettes, but I might get the rest until I have the cash for the real deals :3

I'll get the Dino Cassettes. To be honest, those things weren't even rare in Japan and are by no means worth the after market cost they command.

*sighs* Getting Overkill to go with Slugfest is going to be a minefield now.

I don't mind KOs, but its when they're packaged in replica boxes\backing cards that I get annoyed. I know a lot of people like the KOs because of this, but its starting to make vintage collecting a dangerous, depressing affair.

We all know it won't be long before people start adding wear and crumpling the boxes, or deliberatly sunfading a bit to disguise it further as well.

Every now and again, we at Seibertron.com are notified of an upcoming Knock Off of a rare or expensive figure, and want to take the time to warn our members to exercise some caution when purchasing vintage pieces.

This time, it appears that a new batch of highly authentic looking Cassettetrons are about to be released, sporting very accurate package reproductions. It appears that Japanese exclusive Dial and Zaur, as well as Raindance, Grand Slam, Beastbox, and Squawktalk have been reproduced. As always, we encourage you to do extensive research when preparing to purchase a rare or expensive figure to ensure you are purchasing what you believe you're purchasing.

PURE WIN!!

These have been holy grail pieces for me for years. Just could never afford the outrageous price tag. Once again, Takara is too busy producing their 6th MP Convoy and crappy movie toys then to produce new or reissue old unreleased toys (unreleased to the USA). Takara dropped the ball again.

So happy we live in an age where there are options OUTSIDE of Takara and Hasbro.

I think its jumping the gun to assume that Takara will never reissue these figures.

They probably won't now the market has been flooded with KOs, though. How many people are gonna pay twice for something if they were prepared to own a KO in the first place?
