    I believe the original was a black suitcase with a clear center window.

    How is the quality on the KO Commander armors anyway? If the quality is good, $50 or so bucks is a good price to pay for something like that.

    i have the shadow commander one.

    it looks pretty good, real one cost 200-300 on ebay, so 50 was a good deal.

    not sure about DIA thou, i got mine from bbts for 80 only they had it on clearance

    They should have done it in Powered Commander colors. I already have the DIA Commander. Not worth $50 just for a suitcase.

    The arms fit loosely on both the ko shadow and city commander for me but, other than that, just perfect. 50>300 by farrr too, needless to say ^^

    It cracks me up how we get messages that read like, "Beware! KO version being released!" and most of us are like, "Cool!!!"

    yeah, im not even looking for 100% down to the perfect color or any perfect details. as long as it good quality and looks very close is good enough for me. Im not looking for perfection. just a similar toy that I dont have to pay high $$$ to get back from the 80s to remind me of my childhood. :)  So I guess beware of more ko transformers coming soon, in a good way? but to be honest. If I was a g1 collector with all real 80s loose stuff. I wont be happy at all. once these loose ko mixes up with the real g1 stuff, like the acessories. its going to be so difficult to know for sure if things are real or fake. I bet even some of the owners would not know for sure. so I do understand both sides. at least most of the ko items people can spot if they do the research. the acessories like the hands, missles, guns? well thats a different story.

    I'm not a huge fan of KO's, or of companies releasing "THIS IS RUMBLE/FRENZY/ARCEE/SPRINGER BUT NOT REALLY BECAUSE WE CALL IT SOMETHING ELSE" type of toys, but I am all for ACCESSORY things, and I guess this trailer is a neat accessory that adds on to a toy without trying to be "a better version of the toy".

    That being said, this reeks of personal profit attempts by a certain someone who runs a KO shop (KO Henkei Gold Convoy anyone?). And because of that, I'll never support it, and I urge the rest of you not to either.

    That, or it could be because he continually tells people he wants to kill me. Seriously and literally.
