    So I bought this off Ebay a few weeks ago. I wanted to do a quick review as some had requested. The first pic compared with actual Voyager Prime.

    The plastic on the KO is decent. Not easter-basket combiner cheap but not Mirage KO great, either. Pretty much standard for a chinese ko. I will say it is much, MUCH better than the oily pile of crap that is my KO Doubledealer.

    Robot Mode:

    The first thing of interest to note is that the KO is about a head or so taller than the original - maybe 1/2". Prime has black on much more of his body in this KO - faceplate, parts of roof. Thegrey legs and weapon on AVP have been replaced with white. The clear windows on AVP's chest have been replaced with painted light blue.

    Structure wise, the biggest draw back to the figure is its looseness. The white fenders (grey on AVP) that lock into place on AVP do not lock on KOAVP - the hole is missing for the tabs.

    The transformation is actually pretty good, as it follows the animated to a tee, and the only problem I had was the leg tab that wouldn't lock in; I had to shave a bit off the hole to get it to fit.

    Vehicle mode looks like its original counterpart, albeit with a nice amount of white in the color scheme. The axe weapon comes packaged in pieces and you have to put it together; as such, it doesnt stay locked too well. But one you fold it down and it makes the "trailer" for KOAVP it works well and is surprisingly sturdy in alt mode - following in the tradition of the animated figures being able to lock parts into place, giving them a pretty solid alt mode.

    Only issue is the axe handle would not fold back all the way, leaving it sticking out from behind in alt mode.

    All in all a decent KO. Would probably pick up some over-sized deluxes if I ever come across them, especially if there was a 2-pack prime, but nonetheless he will have a home with my animated stuff.
