    I got in a sample of this figure today and thought I would share a little bit. I will just post images here - there are a lot of them so bear with me.

    It seems these are getting better with each release. This figure is good and tight, transforms well, poses well, joints fit and is just overall awesome. The Chinese Police deco is very well done and you can see on the box that there are 4 different versions of this figure available through these guys. The body parts are done in a subtle grey this time instead of ivory making the look of the robot mode very nice indeed. If these keep up in quality, who knows where it will go. I will have to get an Alt Prowl and do a side by side comparison very soon to see if there are a whole lot of differences in plastic quality and overall construction. But that will be for a future review......

    Spencer.

    I absolutely NEED one of these.

    ***EDIT***

    Just bought one on eBay from HK. Hopefully it will get here safe and sound. I have a phobia for ordering overseas.

    But alas, Beatdown will join my ALT ranks!

    I got one of these off a fellow board member, not too bad at all for a KO, though for somereason I feel sick touching it, maybe lead paint, it does have an odd smell to it....
    other than that its great, now to figure out who to make it.

    If you bought it from funexport2007, in my personal experiance you shouldnt have any problems. I bought a couple of ko's from them before and they were fine.

    Even when the first one got lost in the mail they resent with no fuss.

    Btw Beatdown. Cool name. I just call mine Chip:thumbs2:

    I got mine from toyslandco. It was a BIN of $1.99 and $25 shipping.

    I'm slapping 'Con badges on mine as soon as he gets here. One more for the ALT 'Con ranks!

    Bought one from the same guy a couple weeks ago. He sent me an email that he had put a wrong address on it and it came back. He reshipped yesterday. Bought the one that look likethe Japanese lettering about a month ago from someone else on eBay. A little loose, but overall not bad for a KO.

    Up to you i s'pose. I didnt and mine got here safe and sound. If you want to make sure it arrives why not its only $3.

    When i ordered KO White Hound from Funexport (Formerly Kenscollection i think) it got lost but they resent no hassle.

    Dammit mine came and it was missing the rear right tail light. The red translucent part. Also the silver on the left front wheel is pretty much non-existent. Also lots of loose joints from pins not being fully pushed in.

    Love the Chinese Police detailing though.
