    Not a bad price either...

    Take a close look at the visor on the windshield and back window...they say "WINNER" instead of Subaru. I think that's what it says on the hood too, but it's too fuzzy.

    BT

    It says BT Smokescreen on the auction title and it lists it as having diecast in the item description.

    Yeah I want a few to kitbash as well.

    It says dicast, BT and "Tommy Makinen (#8) or Petter Solberg (#7)" which has me thinking that it is a Binaltech KO instead of Alternator. If so it will be more difficult to kitbash... in some respects.

    They've learned from Takara on how to conceal that fact that some don't fit together in vehicle mode - package it in Robot mode.

    Isn't that the BT KO that's been around for years? Just in new packaging?

    The color schemes for the Dodge Viper I have seen before but I don't think the Subaru Impretza WRC has come out in the original color schemes or in the BT* type packaging.

    Judging by the cost of shipping, it's probably all plastic (shipping weight at 2 lbs). If they can offer these in different colors like some of the BT KOs were, this will be great.

    Yeah... if these KO makers really want to part us from our money, they should make some of those figures in the decos we really want.

    Like, give us an Impreza done up like a police car, for a "classic" Prowl look. Or red and ambulance decos for Skids. Or mix it up and give us a black Dodge Ram mold with a Swindle head. Or a military jeep version of Hound, or a Meister/Jazz with the blue stripes.

    Those are things I would consider buying a KO for...

    For a minute there, I thought it was something that hit the US.
