    I just have to ask.

    Between G1, KO and now Encore. What are the differences in connection points with the CD stuff. Will one version not work with the rest and why?

    Thanx

    So, G1 version, KO version and ENCORE versions are all different? and then also have silver and purple thighs?

    I don't know if this is just because I hate CrazyDevy, but as soon as I saw the J and K codes, my minds just sprang to "j/k". To be fair, to me this does look like a joke. I mean, I wasn't even aware there was a moulding change between the reissues.

    Still think this is a joke. Either a marketing joke, or a joke of a product. Doesn't really matter to me either way. I can't fault their design work, I can fault the way it's released though. :lolol

    Since these are made with Polylac Virgin ABS, how could you NOT buy them?

    This from the guy who painted his Heavylabour thighs grey. lol

    The beauty of Dev is that you have a lot of different colour options that will give you the same figure.

    Me I am in the Green and Purple camp.

    Tolerances aren't the same between the original, KO and reissue apparently. Meaning some parts would be either too tight or too loose to fit.

    Makes sense, the toy has probably degraded a bit from the initial run to the reissue - especially if the molds had to be restored.

    Glad to see they followed through on this. Been wondering.

    I already have the Hi-Q KO set. Not bothering with Encore. So I'm good.

    Bring on more Predaking, Bruticus, Menasor, Omega, Superion or Piranacon parts!

    Or start a new set for Powermaster Prime that can be repainted into Fireguts and Nucleon Quest colors!!!

    I have the real thing and the high end KO. The mold is really slightly off. So for instance, the legs with the original fit perfect, with the KO, they are slightly tight. With the forearms, forget about it. They are completely off you have to get the KO forearm set.

    im still sticking with crazy devy just for predaking and piranacon... but if another company makes a Make Toys/TFC quality of either piranacon or predaking I will VERY likely sell my CD stuff and not look back.

    There are slight changes in the tolerances between the molds. Stuff you can't see with the naked eye but it makes a big enough difference that you have to mold the pieces differently. The pegs for the arms are all different sizes, The molding around Mixmasters head is different too, also the pegs for Devastators head on the head clip and Longhaul.
