    Well, the KO train rolls on.

    I've done my part, having bought both official TT Tracks and Road Rage. The prices I paid (about USD40 and USD30 respectively) were only slightly higher than what a KO at local rates would probably cost, so there was no big attraction to me in holding out for KO versions.

    I hope that TT can take a leaf out of the software industry's book; I seem to recall that original software sold a lot better when it was priced at a reasonable premium over pirated versions.

    No interest in a KO Tracks, but I do hope for a KO Road Rage.

    I just want her gun to give to MP Tracks (and perhaps the head for kitbashing). Bit too expensive to buy the real thing for that.

    That's what I wanted to do too, and when I saw an official version for USD30, I was like OK, it's not going to get any better than this for a real one, let's do it.

    I'm sure a KO RR can't be far behind. TakTony'd be silly not to release her :p

    I expect black Tracks to eventually see release. We've seen that Takara still has one face that hasn't been used, that looks like the toy face on Tracks. I do wonder if the KO face might be easily removed. From the look of things, Tracks was originally intended to have a face swap feature that ended up using glue.

    I'm off the MP KO bandwagon... The only KO's I'm buying from now on are the Wei Jiang upscaled KO's....

    Pretty much. Now you can have a KO hollow chest instead of an official hollow chest.

    QFT! At least with this news being in the 3rd party realm, we won't have all the TT gun-ho loving patriots jumping in here and condemning the KO and our critiques of the shabby figure. With that said, I do own both Tracks and Road Rage (just cause I'm more of a completionist). Without a doubt, the Tracks mold is much inferior to all previous car bots. I'm not sure how this KO could improve on this figure other than some tolerance tweaks like the loose knee joint. The head will still be floating, his shoulder wheels will still get hindered by his backpack, his shitty arms still can't do a 90 degree bend.....

    Why would anyone buy the KO when retailers are selling the real thing for $45?

    I'd be interested... if they could fill in the giant gaping hole in his back.

    I really need someone to come up with a mod to fix that or a shapeways piece that can fix it somehow. It just ruins a great looking figure. And I have both Tracks & Road Rage.

    Official rocks. Good figs. But, if you save $10, that's good n milk for a family.
