Be extra careful!
Damn that's seksy for a KO.
Cheers for the heads up.
At least the purple barrel will be a dead giveaway, if that's the final production version.
I've got quite a few KO's, mostly vintage, but none of these modern copies, they're insidious to our hobby. Is this another Zhong-Zhin KO?
thats okay with me especially if I can get it cheap cause mine needs parts lol and also that clear chest part is a dead give away with that striping on it
oh and post this in the news section it should be known that there will be a KO comign out
i would not be against buying that guy depending on the asking price...
this will be mine.
I'd buy it. Much cheaper than an original mib.
We dont know this yet lol. But if its cheap ill get one for sure.
Cheaper yes, quality? That will be the question. The main reason Shockwave demands so much is the fact that a lot of the originals are now broken. Also, that is why parts for him are so expensive. So if the original has quality issues then can the knockoff be any better? I am not knocking the knockoff (pun intended) I would wait until a few are out to see what the quality is like. Also if you remember the problems with KO Swoop and that they made changes to make it better, you might want to wait until they make changes if needed. Just a thought. There are differences in the mold on the crotch area, the chest, and the screws are a dead giveaway if someone changes the barrel.
Good thing I got a couple of near-mint G1 Shockwaves last summer; I might have fallen for this one like I almost did with Devastator.
I'll get one if it's cheap enough. I'll even display him on the shelf by my real G1s *GASP*!
I agree about the quality - seeing as how the originals break so easy, I'd wait to see how this one stands up before dropping any money on it. If it's just going to break on the second transformation it isn't worth ANY amount.
Damn right when I had caved in and got a vintage one from Ebay...
Also isn't his eye suppose to be gold, they show silver? Anyway as lon as price is cheap and quality is great I'll gat it, mine needs the battery cover, chest & nozzle
For some weird reason they plastics they used on g1 shockwave is very fragile. Definitely doesn't feels the same as other g1 toys. (Maybe because they use a different material in Korea?)
It's possible this KO actually has more durable plastics comparing to the orignal one.
Shockwave's "headlight" suppose to be yellow/golden, but those paint tend to get wear out over the years.
Hmmm... I just got the vintage in the mail today and it is in better condition than I excpected....
It will be displayed in robot mode and if a KO can be had for the right price, it will stay MISB...
Sign me up for a purchase
Those chrome screws on him are a dead giveaway. Also their should be enough rubber hose for it to go over his shoulder, not around. I can't believe my legs stay extended from playing the crap out of him when I was a kid. Unfortunately, I don't have the battery cover but still have the box and foam.
I'm in for one!!
I have no problem getting this, but I'm going to wait until a few people get it and give it a good review.
