    Glad I bought 1 Takara , and 1 ko Cassette just in case. Tape-bots are my #1 thing to collect.

    Just tossing this out there for the Test Shot/Prototype collectors, apparently the factory is casting this KO Ratbat in clear plastic and are trying to pass it off as a "Rare Test Shot" on ebay for about $150 each.

    I purchased one of these on eBay the first weekend they were posted. Of course that meant mine came with one of the back rockets unable to transform properly and the chest piece doesn't sit flush. By any chance does anyone know if these issues were taken care of in later runs of the ko? I am thinking of picking up another and would jump right on it if I stood a chance of getting one in better shape than the first one I purchased.

    Opened it up as in took it apart? I didn't take that close of a look but my boosters line up and chest piece is flush. I saw no cracks or stress marks anywhere but I'll check again later.

    yep, it only has a couple screws, the inside chewed up horribly on mine, with just 2 transformations. I believe it is documented waaaay earlier in the thread.

    Much appreciated. I think I may take the leap and pick up another one.

    That's why I paid a rediculous amount for the official one.

    OK, took a closer look at mine and I guess it has some of the same minor issues. Doesn't seem very bad in person but mine has slightly crooked right booster and the chest is slightly not flush.

    I never thought much of these issues until now and without knowing about them, they never bothered me. I think the crooked booster was something I noticed but didn't think much of and the chest/head is a complete non-issue to me. But just wanted to clarify for anyone still thinking about picking this up and concerned.

    Considering the only other option is buying a Soundwave repaint I think it's a livable defect.

    It's an exact replica of mp ratbat aside from a slight difference in the shade of pink, no size difference at all.
