My kids made a desert full of Graboids in Minecraft this past weekend. Including paintings of people in the mouths.

Given how TM Megs suffers from GPS, I'm sure many people would jump at a reissue.

@  Pennpenn : (01 May 2016 - 12:32 AM)

Out of all the hypothetical Beast Wars things, the one I'd like is a leader class Transmetal Megatron

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:18 PM)

They'd make a superb duo. If TT drew the line under BW MPs after those two, I'd be perfectly content.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:15 PM)

I personally hope we get an MP BW Megs, especially if he has a rubber ducky he can hold, yeeess.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 11:13 PM)

Bring on October and MP Primal so the anniversary celebrations can begin.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:06 PM)

oh hey lok its tecs birthday

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 11:03 PM)

It certainly has, man. If it wasn't for BW I probably wouldn't be here.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 10:15 PM)

Yeah, I threw a link in the Beast Wars Birthday thread. I'm keen to hear as many thoughts on it as possible. The last month has proven just how dear to the hearts of fans BW is.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 10:04 PM)

I looked at it a few days ago, actually, I saw you post it somewhere here on the forums.

@  Verno : (30 April 2016 - 09:43 PM)

No, they're certainly after their own ends. Cheers for taking a look at it, Smokey. I appreciate it.

@  Smokey : (30 April 2016 - 09:36 PM)

Well, at least you twisted things around so the Tripredacus council aren't minions of Unicron.

I only bought from them once... had a problem with broken items and while it took some time and pestering, I got a replacement, so overall I have a moderate to good impression of the store. I realize some people have horror stories.

I thought about trying to go get some of the custom Classics Seekers like Sunstorm or the purple guys, but either I can't find them or they are already gone.

I can't say as I'm really sad about this. It really wasn't run that well, even if you ignore the fact that he was selling actual KOs.

From the sound of it the business practices were pretty bad (not even bring into that the aspect of selling KOs).... just with regards to attitude and poor customer service.

But I have to say I thought that a number of their releases were pretty cool (like the aforementioned purple Classics Seeker). At least I think those releases were specific to KOtoys, I could be wrong.

Can anyone comment as to the manufacturer of the KO dinocassettes, the extent of KO Toys' involvement with their manufacture (if any) and whether their closing is likely to effect the release of the remaining two cassettes?

its sad that I can say "couldn't have happened to a nicer guy" ... without ever having bought anything off him. Word of mouth was enough to keep a lot of people away... wonder if that's why its closing

Yeah, definitely. I'm also wondering whether it was Hasbro, Fun Pub, or Takaratomy that did this.

Yeeeeah... I don't think taking out any preorders there right now would be a safe use of cash. I'm kind of wary that he might just take the money and run since the store will be closed.

Yeah, looks like they may already be down. I can't get the site to load at the moment, at least.

Or going up and down, rather. I guess they're getting high traffic.

Although I fully comprehend the legalities of the issue, I will be personally sad to see it go. They offered a lot of fantastic product for me that I would have otherwise never owned. I can't help but smile about that.

Who knows what the future holds anyway. For some, it never ends.

I can't believe they have the balls to announce it as though they are the heroes of the situation, and talk about it being a shame OTHERS don't have the 'the values of Optimus Prime'.


Good riddance. Please stay the hug away from TF products and fandom in the future.

Only time I dealt with KoToys, I paid my money waited a few months, sent some emails asking why they had $50 of my money and I didn't have a product and never got any replies. So they've been out of MY business for a while.

Bad News-

KOToys has to stop selling toys,

Good News-

so everything is priced to go.

Please Order now to ensure your stock and delivery time.

Some of the prices are really unbelievable, so please do not miss out on this opportunity and get what you have always wanted. No point in holding back now.

It was nice helping out while we could. Its a shame that others in charge do not hold the same ethics and values as Optimus Prime and most of the Autobots. Sad to say goodbye, but we will have to close the store before 2012.

The store will remain online for live help and email help.

The Forum is undecided.
