The button that activates the spring loaded snapping jaw is tooled a little differently between the two as well.
Seems more defined on the KO. Conversely, the rivet detailing on the upper part of the Jaw on the KO seems less
defined (?)

you mean "evidence". for all anyone knows reissue grimlock was planned long before the KO was released. also its a hasbro asia takara version reissue....aka lets look at ebay/auction prices and plan a release accordingly arm of hasbro. i don't know why you continue to push the thinking that KOs FROCE reissues?

where is reissue encore scorpinock? where is reissue mp red alert? cmon now. both KOs and reissues happen because they are both gauging market demand. plain and simple.
We NEED MP Magnus V3 (aka a REAL magnus). Hoping 3P beats TT to it after what they decided on. bleh! , FIRRIB, truck not monkey, mp enthusiast, 3P supporter MY FOR SALE THREAD!!l

Yah I noticed that too. Dont know what to make of it.

There was another thread recently here that was asking for help on identifying if there MP-08 is a KO and the only thing I can figure that seems to identify the KOs are the sprue marks on the Robot head as pointed out by X2O toys gallery. I compared this to my Hasbro MP-08 and it was consistent.



KO (left), real Takara (right)

Correction the head vizor does work but it needed tremendous amount of force to move up and down

How much was it? Where did you purchase it from? Can the knees be fixed?

I don't think there's as direct a correlation as the other poster seems to see, but, in fairness, via BBTS:

MP-14 MASTERPIECE RED ALERT - 2ND PRODUCTION RUN
With a confirmed 2nd production run, those who missed out the first time will have a chance to pick up this great figure. Red Alert is listed at $79.99.
