    I have them both. They are not bad. I do not have either of the real Mustang Alts so I cannot compare directly. The quality is decent though.

    The head on Grim is .... interesting....

    It almost seems a shame that they're just ersatz duplicates of existing Alts... if you're gonna knock off Alts, might as well give us some interesting new character possibilities and heads.

    On the other hand, for those who missed Wheeljack the first time around, this is a passable alternative. Of course, they cost more than the retail price on the real ones, and they're almost certainly of lower quality. Tough call.

    Yeah, I got the K.O. Grim.....he's pretty cool looking....

    Things I like about it is that: the red is red....I have problems seeing colors sometimes, but the red on Alt Grim looks kinda orange-ish to me....but on the K.O....its RED!....and like Gargunkle said, the head on K.O. Grimmy looks interesting.....it's like a cross between Grim and WJ...at least to me he does....I call him Grimjack...

    If I could read that site that Bobby Lemain linked us too...I'd be all over them for $7 shipped....

    And Rod, if you look close at the pic, you can see a K.O. WJ in the mix with the K.O. Grim's

    KO = Knock Off, an unofficial copy of a product, generally (though not always) of lower quality.
