    It's actually quite good. I got one to open, and these KO's are made using original French molds, the same one used to make the rare "red foot" Optimus Primes in the 80's (I'm not sure if EVERY part is an original mold) What I do know is some of the parts like the fists are not the same as the US version, and they do not match the holes on an original Prime. they come with the same accessories as an original, however, some parts are repro. The nozzle, pump and hose are one piece, as the original had three separate pieces.

    I would say that this is easily the best KO I've ever seen. it is exactly the same amount of die cast, etc. And the cost is obviously WAY cheaper than a Jafcon Prime.

    here's some pics so you can see more and side by side comparisons iwith an original

    I have been thinking about getting one for a bit for a custom and put my mint G1 in the re-issue box.The pics look worth the time so I'll probably get one myself.
