Ok now this is funny. I ordered a used copy of HoS GN and the one I got was a library copy once. It's marked Union County on it. Thats my home county. :D It never was in my library though. Mine is named after the man who built it not the town or county but still kinda funny.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 February 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Is it sad I read "KF7 Soviet" as "KFC7 Soviet"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:38 PM)

Neat.

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 03:35 PM)

A what? Oh, you must mean a KF7 Soviet. Common mistake.

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 02:35 PM)

this is form 47-a. you want form 47-A. start again

@  MEDdMI : (09 February 2016 - 02:07 PM)

Now you didn't fill the form in black or blue ink. Do it again.

@  Rycochet : (09 February 2016 - 02:04 PM)

You made a typo on the first page of the forms, you're going to have to go back and fill the whole form out again, from first to final.

I am fully aware of that story and mentioning it carries the penalty of fifty towel snaps.

Shh, it's a trap!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 February 2016 - 02:48 PM)

See, you said "awesome" and "The Beast" in the same sentence, and I think you broke my mind with the contradiction.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:42 PM)

No-one tell Whirl about the awesome dinobot combiner, The Beast.

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:37 PM)

@Dracula Uh oh were in trouble.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:36 PM)

If you think that's cool, wait until you see what other stuff we're hiding from you.

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 02:33 PM)

Transformers Victory's intro is awesome. And not one of you told me.... WHY?!!!

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

It doesn't count those using it on other pages.

If it's the one by IPB Shoutbox, it means the number of people who are viewing the Shoutbox page.

@  tffan01 : (08 February 2016 - 10:34 AM)

Where's the red numbers?

@  Lush City : (08 February 2016 - 09:23 AM)

Ok total newb to the shoutbox, but what do the red numbers in the corner mean?

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Thought it would lead to hi jinks and a lark like that movie Idiocracy instead it turned into something disturbing and traumatic like that movie Small Soldiers.

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 07:48 AM)

I got bruticus limbs at FP last monday and Onslaught on Friday. Huge mistake, I inserted an X1000 microprocessor in each one and a extra for Bruticus, and they mopped the floor with the rest of my CW collection.

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 06:18 AM)

i already got those(Scattershot & Onslaught) from Smyths Toys here in the UK, Asda's supposed to have the RID Warrior Class figures in(Megatronus, Blue Optimus Prime ect)

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:07 AM)

@  Pennpenn : (06 February 2016 - 10:34 PM)

I do love how they did the "Death! ...by snu-snu!" scene, with Fry and Brannigan's expressions shifting between horrified and delighted.

@  Lisbon Virgo : (06 February 2016 - 08:46 PM)

Yes, please?

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.
