CD-R King 3D Printer from Philippines

It looks like some sort of K8200 clone or re-brandedimported machine from Philippines. It is sold for 100 000 Philippine Peso which is almost 2200 USD. I have a filing that any Philippino interested in buying it could build a better printer for less money. On other hand, maybe it's hard to import parts into Philippines.
