Yeah I had turned off adblock a while ago and got the same message last night.

@  Lazy Garou : (16 January 2017 - 12:38 PM)

anyone seen the korean method 1?

@  Arazyr : (16 January 2017 - 12:11 PM)

I got something similar recently. I think it was due to the site being set up to use https. AdBlock counted it as a different site. I had to update my settings.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2017 - 09:31 AM)

I got it this morning, but it turns out my ad blocker was actually on. I could have sworn I turned it off for the allspark already though...

@  BlackMax : (16 January 2017 - 07:20 AM)

Yeah, so did I. Only one time though.

@  Pennpenn : (16 January 2017 - 03:05 AM)

Got a popup saying I'm using ad-block on this site when I am not. Huh.

@  Bass X0 : (16 January 2017 - 02:29 AM)

In that case I say it is survival of the cutest! Do I hear a second on that? And against?

The platypus is nature's way of saying "I made this from scraps I found on the floor, and it can STILL hug you up."

@  MEDdMI : (15 January 2017 - 11:05 PM)

That's what they WANT you to think. They're already a mashup of at least 3 other creatures. Platypi are already Megazords by themselves.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 January 2017 - 10:52 PM)

Depends on how big the dog is.

@  ShadowMan024 : (14 January 2017 - 02:56 PM)

If you're inside of a dog you've probably been chopped up into dog chow and won't be able to read anyway.

@  Lazy Garou : (14 January 2017 - 01:36 PM)

misread a facebook title about Bauman's legacy as the importance of Batman's legacy.

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2017 - 11:33 AM)

A book is man's best friend outside of a dog, and inside of a dog it's too dark to read.

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?

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.

Funny thing is, I don't know if they even needed a C&D shoved in their face, the way things were being run there.

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.

I did have to bite and ordered a CHMS orange Sunstorm for $9.99. I'll let people know if it gets delivered.

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.
