    So around early Nov I picked up the SG MP-10 KO for around $90. Then Black Friday hits, real version is on sale for $99 at BBTS (which is usually my luck). I've been eyeing that sale again as well, been replacing KOs with officials for what ever reason, but wondering if it's worth it here. The SG KO seems solid, no floppy head or anything with has been an issue with recent MP-10 KOs. Anyone know if the official is far better than the KO?

    I agree on the v2 KO, however the MP-10A was a big improvement and I was very pleased with it. Now, I'm just wondering (as I just sold my v2 KO) whether this Takara KO, from the link I posted above, will fall under the same category in quality as the MP-10A?

    Keep the KO version. The official release does not come with Roller or Spike.

    Just curious, where did you pick up the KO MP-10 SG for that price?

    I have both the HasTak SG MP10 and the KO version in those same colors. I can say that the official thigh joints aren't as super tight so you can rotate them a bit easier.

    I got it on Ebay back in the day. Had a string of bad luck with Chinese sellers back in October/November, oddly enough that was the only purchase that turned out to be legit. I believe you can find them on TaoBao for cheap if you're feeling adventurous.

    In a addition to Taobao, TF-direct.com may still have it too.

    Does anyone know, or have a link to, a reputable seller for a KO MP-10B with trailer? Thanks!

    Ebay:
    Got mine in hand today, it's much much nicer than the KO. At first glance what tells me it's not a KO is the antenna is stiff to rotate, no floppy head, and gun, joints don't feel greasy to the touch and axe fits over the fists. Overall joint tolerances are also very good and based on memory it feels heavier than the KO.

    What tells me it's a possible reject is the front doors don't sit flush in robot mode with / without the matrix. Not a biggie to me. I'll keep my KO trailer so now I have a pretty decent MP10. If anyone's interested once I transform it I can report back.

    Anyone know how similar the MP-10R (Red Bape) KO’s box is to the legit deal? It’s missing the barcode right?

    Anyone know where to find just the trailer for mp-10b? I wouldn't mind buying the bundle with the figure but I feel it would be a hassle to sell.

    Why can't any KO make an MP-10 right or better than the official?

    Explanation of "better" is required.

    Better = cleaner paint lines and more durable paint apps; stronger and more durable joints; more articulation; lower price; etc.

    Not necessarily. There have been plenty of KOs of other official figures that have used essentially the same mold but improved articulation (e.g., pose-able hands), better paint apps, and/or stronger joints.

    True, I suppose.
