    Anyone know where I can find them, and how the quality is? I am really wanting that white jeep...

    Thanks!

    Ebay's probably your best bet. I don't know any of the reputable online dealers that carry 'em.

    And I've heard good things about the quality, especially for the price. I'm interested in a white Hound also, just haven't bothered digging lately.

    I have a KO Sideswipe, it has some Metallic parts. The only diffirence is that he doesn't come with the Autobot logo. However, his feet are really loose, and I had to tighen his legs using a screwdriver.

    Oh, and recently, I broke an arm on this KO. However, it wasn't because of the figure's quality, it was due to an experiment.

    I just got in the Grimlock and Wheeljack today from the KO Alt/BT guys. I am going to do a review of it on the borad here in a few minutes.

    I wanted to try these ones and then if they were OK then I would considering carrying the whole line.

    That'd be great. I checked your site for 'em a while back and didn't see any, but I'd much rather buy 'em from you than eBay.

    I have the white jeep you're talking about. I kitbashed it into and Alt. Ratchet. It's not bad.... fairly decent for a KO, but definitely NOT as high-quality as an official Binaltech. The joints are a smidge looser, the plastic softer, the paint application a little sloppy, and the pieces don't line up perfectly in car mode. Also, the white plastic has a definite yellowish tinge to it, which means it is a bit mismatched against the snow-white painted metal pieces.

    Anyway, I think it's still a decent figure, and like I said, not bad at all for a KO. Just be warned that there is a slight quality difference between it and a real BT.

    With all this news lately about lead-based paint on Chinese toys lately, I also wouldn't go licking it... just in case. :p

    Actually, your Ratchet is what made me want to pick it up. I would love to bash a ratchet and then maybe the orange (?) car to sunstorm

    I don't think that was my Ratchet.... I've never posted pics of mine. :)  But I bet we were both inspired by the same one. I saw one online (on eBay, actually) that made me want to do the same thing.

    The figure works great for Ratchet. Just pop a Prowl head on there and you're halfway done. I'll post pics of mine one of these days.

    Ken's Collection has them $30 a pop, but shipping is only $2, I have ordered form ken in the past, he also has an eBay store, Ken and Ava's (or something like that). The only down side in ordering from his site (I haven't ordered form his eBay store) is that the shipping was really slow, but I definatly would order from him again. Here's a link to the site:

    http://kenscollection.com/catalog/index.php?cPath=30

    As far as quality goes, they are not bad. I have a couple of the Viper molds, only complaint is that the legs are kinda loose and makes it hard to stand them up, but al in all not a bad KO.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Thor! I'll probably drop this guy some money for one, unless A3U decides to stock them soon.
