    well i got mine today

    over all it feels quite solid


    head pops off a little too easy (idk if it was common in official one)

    feet were a little loose (i tighten it up with some clear coat nail polish)

    no rub signs on either side

    in car mode the 2 half's that make the rear half of the car is is a little too gapy but by placing the hand gun as the muffler the gap is mostly gone


    all joints feel solid

    plastic doesn't have a cheep feel to it

    paint apps are very well done

    again over all it feels quite solid and is a welcomed addition to my collection having missed the original

    Will get it, eventually. Definitely going to buy the Shapeways head along with it though. The CHMS head is even worse than the official one.

    Got a link to a specific one?

    Glad to hear that the figure turned out alright. Also happy about the lack of rubsigns. Every pic I ever saw of the official P/CP with them looked crooked and out of place.

    Don't forget Reprolabels has working rub signs, if you really need them.

    I bought 2 of these today. Paint job was mediocre at best. Plastic in general felt solid except some tabs which had stress marks when I got it alrdy. Transformations was a little finicky with either loose or overly tight joints.

    Here's a pic taken by my cell.

    I had the same problem...mine was very tight, and the tab seem a little too long...the paint job I have is very good...but for 50$ you get what you pay for I guess...Im glad I KNOW I had a KO...I hate to shell out 200$ for a KO...

    now bring on G1 Breakdown...KO of course...

    Well, that settles it, no bigger head at all as rumored

    What about the package? any way to tell its a KO? Does it really have that weibo url printed?

    Here are some comparison pictures of the Ko head and the Tfcc head.. There about the same size not much difference. I did notice the ball joint for the KO is bigger and wont fit on the original Tfcc counterpunch..

    Yeah by all means keep it.

    The reason for this unofficial release is for those, who missed out on the limited TFCC one & don't want to splurge on the ridiculous amount to pay for it.

    So to each his own, so why must you say "meh"?

    I am personally very thankful for this release. Yes we all agree the official is definitely better, however for someone like me who missed the boat, not gonna pay $300 odd for it now. meh.

    It came out early this mth.

    Fret not, if you bought it several years ago, yiu shouldn't worry too much.

    Also the box of the KO version have some very obvious signs to differentiate from the original (see earlier box pix posted by beangrower)
