    Pretty cool.... Looks different then my original but I might get one to save my real one from possibly getting damaged.

    there are some noticable differences but i guess not enough like the original.

    i was hoping for it to be more spot on, there shouldnt be any blue on the cab hood/gun and the colors look a lot lighter.

    i was waiting for this one and might just go get the real one instead if this one comes out lighter.

    Thanks for posting this, I plan on grabbing it as a stand-in for SG Prime until I can get the real one.

    I could get very interested in that. I've been after an SG Prime for a while, this will more than suffice.

    With the colors not being spot on and the Not For Sale on the front bumper, I can see assholes trying to pass this off as a real test shot.

    I didn't even see the "Not For Sale" on the front. That is a bad deal. I understand why people would feel the need to buy the knockoffs but adding that onto the deco really irks me. I don't have a test shot or anything, but who would buy a test shot if they can be easily duped with this thing. From what I have seen in the KOLD line, the only thing that can separate this from the real thing is the quality of the plastic and the face mold. The face didn't come out that great on a Wonderfest Black Convoy that I bought. That one didn't come with the Not For Sale sign though.

    I like how Mike's stuff is under the "BUYERS BEWARE" category now.

    I expect someone's going to get a few poorly-spelled e-mails soon.

    Pretty decent, but mine came with one of the elbow tabs broken. Not a big enough issue for me to complain seeing as how I bought a KO. Joints (on mine) are a little loose, but for now it fills the void till I have $175+ to spend on a legit one.

    Negative reviews of the KOLD line? Would you be so kind as to point me in the direction of where I could find one of these reviews?

    Bah. Takes the fun out of saving and hunting for rare or highly collectible pieces when markets suddenly get invaded by some cheap shitty knock-offs.

    Still, I guess the manufacturers are happy to make money off people who want a rare piece but are somehow happy to make do with an inferior common as muck piece that looks similar instead.

    I just don't understand it.

    Some of you really need to think about coming down from your high horses.

    Your wailing and lamentations sound a bit like sour grapes to me.

    Good for you, rich person!

    I wouldn't pay the asking price of a legit vintage toy, because I don't like paying for something that's already obsolete and likely used.
