    Can anyone identify it for me. It is kinda cool to transform it from race car to robot you just push the tail fin forward and it "auotmorphs"!! The only markings I can see other then racecar markings, which are painted on and not stickers, is a made in China stamp on hte bottom.

    It's definitely a repaint of Machine Wars Mirage. At first I thought it was RiD Skidz, but now I think I agree with grimlock1972. KO.

    KO... might make an interesting CHUG Lightspeed, though.

    Definitely not RiD Skid-z, he's white and purple. I'll go with KO too.

    KO Machine Wars Mirage. Had one too, except it was blue. Neat little KO IMO.

    I have all the versions of this mold and it's not a Hasbro or Takara one, so like other have said a KO.

    Still it does look fairly good, I wonder if it's the same size? Are the gun parts with it? They may be inside the hollows in his legs.

    Thanks guys for the help.

    Sorry I posted in wrong area! :( 

    He has no guns and he is about the size of a ROTF scout class figure. PLastic is very good for a KO. :)  It was in a "fill a bag for $2 bin" so I think I got a pretty good deal!

    I'd have to agree with the others, it's a KO made to homage G1 Red Mirage. What store was this at? I wouldn't mind snagging one of those if I could find one.

    Oh how I've longed for that mold to be repainted as Drag Strip.

    Will have to look out for that. It'll be my G1 Crasher to go with my white Cliffjumper/Bug Bite.

    I'm pretty sure I've got this guy still on a card somewhere. There were several different colours of him KOed a few years ago along with RM Optimus and RID Tow-Line (Was he in RM too? There were a lot of RM KOs around that time). I must've picked up at least half a dozen Optimus ones on different cards and at different levels of quality.

    IIRC these came in 2 packs with a KO flipchanger jet at Big lots about 5 years ago...

    I got such a Big Lots 2-pack (the pack-mate was Air Hunter I think, orange/black jet) but the Mirage in my pack was blue.
