    For a KO, I feel like its lacking the details but it doesn't look bad!
    What do you guys think?

    I think it has better paint detailing in some spots than the real thing.

    That said if anyone is thinking about buying one as a cheaper alternative, the real thing will be on deep discount soon enough.

    Whew! I was afraid this was going to be yet ANOTHER KO Mirage thread.

    As for the KO at hand, I agree. It really doesn't look that bad, especially in the chest-head area.

    This has been asked a million times, but HOW DOES KO TOYS STAY IN BUSINESS?? Is it this much of a "drops in the bucket" attitude, that Hastak doesn't care?

    KO Toys is a retailer, selling items manufactured by other companies. Hasbro can't say shit about them selling stuff.

    I just can't believe that a cease and desist on illegal product can't be declared. I mean, I don't care either way, and it's one thing when it's old G1 molds or when I see G2 Cyberjet molds at Big Lots and go "Oh, that's funny", but brand new DotM toys? I don't think it's a case of "Hasbro can't say anything", I think they just don't even care.

    A combination of things probably makes it just plain not worth the bother.

    So if you tell these guys to stop...
    Fanprojects, Igear, and soooooooooooooooooo onnnnnnn has to stop.
    Would it be worth it in the end?
    I THINK NOT.

    Thats why Hasbro lets people make KOs, kits and so on.... Because they can be used for many reasons....
    This KO we see could become one hell of a custom.

    Mike operates from China. That's how.

    It's not like knock off figures steal purchases from legit Hasbro product anyway. If there's any issues from these DotM knockoffs, it would be from Paramount over the likenesses and not Hasbro.
