    KO Battle Tanker Review and Comparison

    Hello,

    Here is a sample review of KO Battle Tanker.
    KO Battle Tanker Review and Comparison | Facebook
    After the inspection, the KO version is around 90% quality of the original one.

    Here are some main difference between two versions.
    1: The outer box is slightly darker for KO version.
    2: No metal wire For the plastic box inside
    3: Head Sculpture is different.
    4: LED is dimmer for KO version.
    5: Electric wire is black instead of grey
    6: The injection molding point is different for the Ancient Sword.
    7: Handle of Ancient sword is black instead of grey and the blue colour is missing.
    8: it does not come with the replacement head.

    Despite the above difference, it is very hard to distinguish original and KO version from the photo. The material used is almost the same.
    If you think the original one is too expensive, or you need one more for modification, the KO version is perfect for you.
    Check out the listing for this item!

    Looking at the pictures though...I don't really care for the OP head on the KO version. I like the OP head you get with the legitimate version as the KO version just looks weird. There's a few details on the tanker on the KO version that just looks off to me too. I think I will definitely be skipping this.

    The head on the KO looks shite, otherwise there's not much discernible different without handling it I suppose.

    Yeah.. I'm thinking that as well. I don't have RtS Prime but I wouldn't mind having this for SG Ultra Magnus. And since I would keep Magnus' head on anyway, this seems like a decent alternative.

    That nose is hilarious.

    But who the fuck goes around KOing third party stuff? It's one thing to get a mass release toy from a major company. It's another to take a small scale operation like this.

    Why? Your applying logic to criminals?? It makes more sense to bootleg expensive items instead of cheap ones

    Perhaps if you ask someone nicely they might sell you a spare head.

    Seriously. Legality aside, it's just a plain dick move.

    I foresee some people getting ripped off on ebay down the road. KO's don't bother me too much when they make it obvious that it's a KO but this one is gonna fool some people.

    Not cool.

    WOW! the KO head is Fugly...but worth $60 to replace Fugly? Not really. I think I am gonna pick this up to have SG Magnus wear.

    I also love the concept of a KO of a third party item. Although Battle Tanker doesn't really represent whats wrong with Third Party products.

    I don't get the hate. for one thing the head makes this easy to identify as a ko and inferior to the original. so it actually seems like a decent move on their part.

    Decent result, not really a decent move. I wouldn't say it's hate just pointing out that anything worth doing is worth doing well. and with the head...they didn't. But no you're correct, it will help distinguish the two.

    glad i got the original, the cheap looking drift sword, and the crappy head, i'm more than happy with it. also, being one of mt's first projects, i'd rather support them than a ko company trying to run them into the ground

    sucks for people that haven't picked him up yet. I jumped in on the bbts sale and just got my official one this week. wasn't even paying attention to this KO news but I'm glad I ordered him when I did and don't have to worry about getting a KO product now.
