    Hi, anyone have any comparison pics or a link to a guide that shows the differences between G1 Cyclonus and his high quality KO? Just the toy not the box.
    Cheers!

    I do not believe there is a KO of that. I could be wrong though.

    This is the KO the others are talking about. I think you can see from that why a discussion is warranted, as it's nearly spot on to the original.

    I've seen a lot of nice KO's. Never knew there was one for him though.

    i would be interested in seeing an out of package comparison for these two.

    but if the same company that made the G1 Shockwave made this Cyclonus, the odds are good the quality is great.

    Well that's initially what the OP wanted to see by starting this thread. (And what I need to see too before making a purchase for a loose/complete one)

    I recently purchased the KO Cyclonus and Scourge. The Scrouge is not great, but the Cyclonus is probably the best KO I own. I use KOs as kind of place-holders until I can afford a minty enough original or reissue. Use Reprolables though, because KO stickers are always, always crap.

    I am also curious about Scourge's KO. What were the issues with Scourge?

    Poor quality plastic, floppy joints, melty looking molding in parts and particularly poor paint apps on the face. It's works ok for display purposes, especially once you apply the Reprolabels, but it's no replacement for an original. Man they really need to Encore that guy.
