    I I remember correctly, reduced die-cast is for better ratchet, some where in video said.

    I’ve never heard it said any of these have no die cast - even the straight KO. Just a lack of extra die cast over the official. I think only IT is supposed to have extra.

    Now I’m even more conflicted. Do I buy a bright silver straight ko with red on the inside of the legs, or the other 2 options.... tho probably won’t see a video on the silver one for another few months I bet...

    It's difficult. I personally picked IT cuz I love the cartoon look and the direction MPs are going. It all depends on what your preferences are. If you love the toy look, then Magten is the best choice. If it's the toy/cartoon hybrid look, THF fits that.

    What I’m curious is if the IT is actually painted , or is it just plastic. Cause he seems to have the strongest “paint” from what I can tell and looks real glossy... if it is paint tho I’ll probably pick IT.

    No one knows for sure. It does look like glossy shiny plastic in some pics and vids.

    the comments on bens video say they saw some kind of a scratch on the barrel, so maybe it is glossy paint? Why a company would use glossy paint when plastic is just as glossy confuses me.....

    I believe this is the Magten even though ShowZ isn't using the "Magten" name on it. I'd message them through the site or on Facebook and ask to be sure but I think this is it.

    Thanks but that one doesn’t have the red legs. I think it’s different.

    It has red legs, just the lighting make it looks dull, you can see red and gold paint on them.

    People are saying that it is a metallic paint with gloss coat. Doesn't show up well in pics.

    Well,

    The Magten is not technically a KO.

    The TT is a 1:1 KO. If you had problems with the official, I'd certainly skip it.

    THF and IT are improved KO's.

    IT all the way.
