    Finally got a hold of her the week before. The figure is solid as far as the Tracks mold goes, perhaps a bit too solid since the sliding mechanism of the arms reguired some filling but now its ok. A problem I have is that the chest doesnt tab, I read somewhere that probably is due to the tabs been larger than the hole, gonna see to it this weekend. Also the red on the tail fins are a bit sloppy painted. Overall nothing major for 22$ shipped that cant be fixed with ten mins of work.

    Nice. Odd thing is that the newer copies of KO MP-25 Tracks no longer have rubber tires.

    Really? They omitted that eh? Did they 'fix' the filled in symbol as well?

    If that's being the case, I wonder if they have omitted using rubber tires for Road Rage as well?

    too bad my ko RoadRage's floating head sucks. :( 

    doesn't have any way of actually connecting to the body it just kinda floats there.

    I've had her since june of last year. got mine from TF-Direct.

    just a placeholder til I can afford the real deal.

    I believe thats the case either way, it sort of attaches to the chest but doesnt tab. Or maybe I remember wrong (been about a month since I saw mine up close). In case you have problems pegging the chest just file it a bit and it will connect.

    mine doesn't even touch the chest. lol it just...kinda floats. XD

    I think on the official it snaps into place. at least it seems to on my official Tracks MP.

    I think it's just a case of the KO Roadrage not having a means to snap into place vs. the official? O_O

    Cant remember really since its been ages that I touched her, but I really doubt it that been the case.

    EDIT: Just checked a couple vids on youtube. The head doesnt peg anywhere on the official, it just comes into place.

    EDIT: And likewise for tracks.

    That's a good question. I guess we'll have to wait for someone to get one and then report back.

    All KO MP Road Rage toys had plastic PVC tires that were painted a flat black color to give it that rubber look.

    none ever had Rubber tires.

    I'm not even sure the official version had rubber tires either. (or did it)

    Also they all came with Flight stands included. the ones that didn't (like mine I received from TF Direct was due to packaging morons who didn't package them properly and left them out on a few.

    I also see that Flight Stands weren't included on many of the official Road Rage MP toys either.

    My official MP Loud Pedal doesn't have Rubber tires either. Perhaps it was a running change after MP Tracks.

    No sir. KO MP Road Rage does in fact have rubber tires just like the early runs of KO MP Tracks. My KO MP Road Rage has rubber tires.
    None of the official MP Corvettes had rubber tires. They all had plastic tires.
    The official MP Road Rage did not come with a flight stand. You either had to use the one from MP Tracks or purchase the Takara flight stand by itself.
    To date there has been no release of KO Loud Pedal. I believe a KO Loudpedal was in the works but it just never materialized.

    ...or the Constructicons weren't too fond of Loud Pedal and drove off with the KO molds.

    I really hope they do release a KO of Loud Pedal. With some paint and addition of spikes, I can make him look like Shredder from the classic TMNT cartoon! :D
