    The malaysian shop x2otoys put a preorder for a DA28 Striker OP's high quality replica (called here "factory stock" but it means ko), that seems following the way of recent Buster OP ko appeared on the market. No actual product pics.

    Hopefully the quality is on par with the authentic release. It would be a great opportunity for those who missed out to get him.

    First, Buster, now Striker, I smell KO APS-01 coming down the pipe!

    If they do get to it, I hope they get it right, and don't leave any unpainted grey stuff, they stick out like an eyesore. Also, hope they can somehow integrate the Buster Cannon into the APS-01. With those 2 improvements, it would trump the original APS-01.

    I would love APS-01. I don't see the point in doing regular striker.

    I wonder if the Asian colour edition will be made to follow too.

    If they designed a Black deco one that was unique maybe with a bit more grey and like the Amazon one and like the Black Jetwing one but not exactly the same I'd love that.

    I'd also love a clear plastic type Striker Optimus too.

    I wonder if someone will KO Brawl sometime ?

    I have the original Striker Prime and the KO Buster Prime (at least I think I do as I cannot tell the difference I between the original and the KO) and this KO Striker Prime looks to be as good as both of those guys. In other words, I can't tell the difference. Wow.

    Is the original KO leader prime good? Is there a review somewhere? I'm worried about the plastic used.

    Two posts above yours.

    It's exactly the same. I can't tell the difference between the real and the KO.

    Yep I saw your post, just wanted to know if there was some kind of in depth review somewhere :)  But thanks. I guess I'll order it, the official one has become way too expensive.

    I know another deco i'd love to see "Nightwatch" (UK/Japanese style) not the one with the Allspark blue on it.

    As someone who has both, I can tell you that while I wish more paint and chrome were used on Striker- he's done in the nicest choice of colors they ever did the mold in. The colors are great and very worthwhile.

    Looked at the in hand images of the KO. Had I not found those pictures through this thread I would have mistaken it with the real deal. It looks that good! As harrismonkey said above the original Striker is incredible. I don't have APS-01 but because of the original I have no interest in getting it. To me the darker tones of gray, red, and blue are better than the shinny silver and chrome. The original Striker is so much better in person than any pictures show. To me this release makes sense.
