    I'm on the fence here! I bought Mirage KO because after reading more than a few reviews here and watching videos on YouTube, I felt it looked good and I'm not disappointed one bit on this purchase.

    Quality, Stance, Paint and in direct competition with KO Mirage, give me your opinion on how these two stack up against eachother quality wise.

    For those that own both------ which is better in what area?

    I got them both, but they are on display with my other reissues so they haven't been opened. My Wheeljack's packaging was worse than Mirage. It seems to not be folded correctly before it was glued together and the interior bubble was coming off if the card. I had to open it up and glue it back down.

    Does anyone here have some input on this? Mirage/Wheeljack quality comparisons. The actual figures, don't care about how the boxes look, as I don't collect cardboard.

    Looks decent.

    Are there are two versions of this KO? It sure looks like it. The one you linked to had no number on the sides, but this on has the 539 on the sides Transformers G1 Wheeljack Reissue KO Brand New For Sale

    Is there a quality difference between the two variations?

    The problem with my Wheeljack KO is that it couldn't stand! It would just lean forward, that got annoying. However, to fix this problem I just brought a junker Wheeljack, swapped out the legs (reattached the KO feet) and it was fixed! There are TONS of junker Wheeljacks out there.

    Other then that, the paint, weapons... etc... all look great! Recommend!

    EDIT: I still have pics of it on my photobucket account. Save the money, buy this! Wheeljacks are way to much money for a figure that honestly isn't that great to begin with

    I waited a bit, still looking for an answer to this question.
