    If I didn't already have the "official" version (which I'm extremely happy with), I'd be all over this guy.

    Baba has it in stock for $63.88 shipped. However he is away until 2/24/18 for CNY so orders placed now won't be processed until then.

    Damn! Even better than showZ’s price which I jumped on. It made it out before the shutdown

    After messing with him for a bit, he's good! Better than Data Clerk I'd say.

    Guns slot in fine to the hands, no worries at all. The shoulder gun is a little trickier to slide in (so to speak) but that's the design rather than the KO.

    Seems fairly solid all around - shoulders are nice and tight, as are the hips and all joints. Everything pegs in fine and transforms fine.

    I do wish MakeToys wouldn't have messed around with TargetMasters and GalaxyForce stuff, we could have Brainstorm and Highbrow by now!

    got mine today and straight away noticed they fixed the droopy top part of the head that would droop over the eyes on the original , the face could be more secure tho

    overall just as good as the original which wasn't bad

    Good to hear. I'm cool with the Targetmasters but not with the GalaxyForce stuff at all. They should just stick to MP G1/Headmasters and Targetmasters for now. Folks would much rather see MT move forward with their Highbrow, Brainstorm, Apeface, and Crosshairs.

    Quality-wise, when it comes to the MakeToys/non-ko versions you can certainly notice the progression of build quality from Cupola up to Contact Shot (Point Blank).
    Cupola's quality was good/decent, Ironwill was better, and Contact Shot was even better.

    Got mine in from Show Z. Everything is solid, but are the knees suppose to be ratcheted? Mine aren't.

    Show z sent mine out at the last second before the shutdown. It’s a few days out. Sweet!

    Can anyone confirm if this KO has the replacement helmet parts already included/installed?
    If not, and if anyone needs them, they are still available on MakeToys' website.

    Mine didn't come with any replacement parts. Just came with an extra faceplate.

    They aren't needed. The head works just fine and everything stays in place. Mine had one minor issue with the main cannon- it wouldn't stay attached, the slot was too narrow at the bottom. A little scraping with a knife and it's locked in nicely now. If you have to do it make sure you make a round hole at the end of the slot so it has something to "pop" into.

    After this guy, I'm jonesing for contact shot.

    Well this is how it happens!!! I get this cause it’s so nice and cheap. Then of course I need chromedome so I got the yes model for $50 shipped. Good thing I don’t feel the same connection with the Decepticon headmasters
