    The first impression I had was "Meh!" when I saw the colors the first time. But the applied stickers really got me on the over-all look, I think the figure looks awesome with the stickers.

    Looks nice, one question and I didn't see it covered in the review: How is the overall plastic quality of it? Flimsy or good?

    I like the figure. I'm not getting it because I want to pass it off as an original. I'm getting it because I want the character.

    I like it overall, and well, the box is a non-issue. in fact i think it works out to me having a KO packed in a box i could put my Metroplex in and be cool with.

    besides, always loved the look of the Plex box and wanted one.

    reasonable price would=owning one.

    LOL

    I just pre-bought this, because I think it is cool in its own right. Would still like an original MT, but after chatting with Spencer, the quality seems superb and the color isnt that bad. If anything, I wish it came with the micromaster and the extra part. But I think it will make an interesting addition, and hopefully I can get the two originals of this one.

    If I wind up getting Metroplex and Metrotitan, I'll chase this down and call him Metrosexual...

    I would like to have side-by-side comparisons to the original too.

    It is not just you. However, I really like this piece. I think the pink looks better than the red.

    How is the quality of the plastic? I have Ko of several combiners and Doubledealer and the plastic is not the best.

    I must've missed the price on this thing... what is it again? in US dollars?
    I actually really want a pink one, moreso than a corrected red version.

    The pink was garishly blinding until the stickers went on. Mind you I lack the ability to notice what makes neon so bright and flashy due to some shit genes, but still, holy crap that looked bad.
    Definitely wouldn't want this unless if I could get stickers too...
