    Anyone own any of these? What's the quality of them and are they worth the money? I was thinking of getting one of em' to save myself the trouble of hunting the real thing down on ebay.

    The guy from ages three and up (name escapes me at the moment) did a pretty good review of the mustang molds. I would assume other molds would be pretty much of the same quality... but who knows. Ages three and up also has the mustang molds for sale now too.

    I forgot his name too, and I cant find that thread. Good grief. I might take the plunge anyway. I dont feelt like dropping $50 for an Alt Wheeljack.

    Thanks a lot dude. I've been thinking about either buying a KO Alt Wheeljack or trading my Alt Rodimus for one in the Junk Exchange since I already have Classics Hot Rod. Meh, we'll see.

    Keep your Alt Rodimus -- a KO Wheeljack isn't worth your real Alt Rodimus no matter how common it is in your area.

    My KO Wheeljack didn't come with any instructions. It came packaged like the BT plastic casing. Transformation was a little tight especially when you need to bend down the windsheild. I cracked it on both sides trying to unpeg it. The forearms were interchanged -- good thing they're just on ball-joints so swapping was easy.

    Aside from tight pegs, it's a pretty interesting display piece on my workstation at the office -- those not familiar with Alt's or BT's won't know the difference between the KO or the real one.

    Pal of mine got a ko bluestreak, very floopy and flimsy. Id like to get a white hound if I could but he seams to be tough to find.

    I got the white Hound from A3U. Overall quality is ace, tight joints, and transforms with no problems.

    Got mine Monday. Very nice for a KO, but you can definitely tell.

    Oops, I meant I was considering trading my Alt Rodimus for a real Alt Wheeljack. But on second thought, with his colors being kind of bland (and me not being a huge WJ fan anyway) I'll keep Alt Rodimus and use him in my battles as Rodimus Prime. :)
