    Again, not having one I can't compare. But the pins version of the legs are tight and don't feel cheap at all. Also, some reviews of the original I've seen, the other part of the spider leg hinge joint (with the two outer parts surrounding) I've seen them pushed outward a little on some limbs. Like the leg piece isn't in perfectly and is causing them to be splayed a little. Certainly not all, but more than once, and more than one leg. These are nice and clean, since they don't have to force the one piece in between the outer hinges on the other. Don't know if I'm explaining that right, but if you look for it in various reviews, you'll probably see what I mean. Not saying those are in danger of breaking or popping out any time soon, but I'm much more comfortable with the pins.

    Everything else on mine looks good. No paint splotches, 'melted' parts that weren't molded as well as the original, etc. Definitely tighter pieces in the limbs, and one scary-tight hinge that is the back leg flap on her left that's part of her transformation. But most of those have massaged out, or you just turn pieces by holding really close to the swivel piece while doing so, or taking your time when transforming. So while I can't compare to an original, I can say she's a great figure and feels solid.

    So how is the KO Blackarachnia's QC? Is it good or bad?

    So far so good! I haven't transformed her yet, just fiddled with spider mode.

    It feels good, the legs are pin'd, one leg was off when it arrived but popped right back into place, it looks like the bot head is not attached but I assume that pegs right back on. I'll update when I've had more time with it but I got that guy behind Blackarachnia today too and I've been lost in nostalgia reconnecting with the leader of my childhood Decepticon forces since I got home from work.

    That's good to hear. I'm considering getting the KO version if the official version becomes hard to get.

    I ordered one last week. Hated to do it while shipping is still jacked up, but I missed the Megatron KO and was afraid this one might sell out.

    Mine was 18 days from shipped to received with TFDirects free shipping. Not great but I've certainly experienced much worse.

    Got mine today from an eBay seller - 13 days via Speedpak. Overall, quality is near perfect. The pieces where the bicep swivels meet the shoulder/upper arm ball joint are a little looser than I'd like, but it doesn't affect posing too badly. For $50, it's a welcome addition to the collection, and looks AMAZING on the shelf. My box has the embossed serial number too, so I'd wonder if this is a factory reject or something.

    I swear some guy just punched some pins into a whole batch of stolen product to pass them off as KOs.

    Totally agree. This thing is perfect.

    Perfect paint, tight joints, all the accessories are good. Got mine from ShowZ. Definite winner.

    Where did you find it for $50? The cheapest I found it is $55 on ebay from a very shady seller, $65 from show z store, tf direct, etc.

    Thanks, though he doesn't offer her anymore.

    Ended up buying her from aliexpress, with a $3 coupon i got a while ago and another for using Blik for payment, ended up getting her for around $49.5. Can't wait for her to arrive.

    Here is my review, and no ShowzStore didn't pay me for the review, I wish. They give you store credit if you mention their name that is all.
