    I'm the opposite. I'm glad my KO prime isn't slathered in paint. I hope my UM 44W is the same.

    Not an attack on you for posting this (thanks for doing it actually!) and more for others considering TE's. The 2nd head to be included is false advertisement, unless there is 3 with the default? Pic only shows 2 so doubt it.

    Otherwise, outside of the very first release, which even then you could get the 2nd head with a little leg work and/or additional cost, every release since has had 2 heads. I've bought every version, in attempt to chase the definitive one so I can confirm this as well.

    I've been torn on which is the best so I have 2 of each, official, KO, TE-01, and TE-01B. I'm leaning on getting the black version of the MP44 KO now.

    Same here. One of the reasons why I didn't buy the official MP-44.

    I'm happy the SG repaint is coming. That's my most wanted recolor in the MP-44 mold. Hoping they'll do a cel-shaded look like the TE-01R down the road.

    so i transformed my version 1 KO from truck to bot and he is still holding up better than i expected over a year later. I still like my silver legs version more but this guy is a Ok - KO. flaws and all.

    I don't care about the paint too much, but I would really like a KO MP-44 that can tolerate continued transformation and posing.

    The only thing that worries me about the Ultra Magnus MP-44W is if the white plastic will turn yellow.

    Indeed they are, and they even removed my logo! @ShowZStore has ignored my requests to put it back.

    I think it goes:

    V1 has issues but paint better
    V2a has less issues, but accurate paint. Is harder to find
    V2b has same issues as V2a, is in silver legs colors.

    I dont believe there is a v3 mold yet. I'm waiting on that one, see if it improves on the official MP44..

    Was it ShowZ or did the KO company use your pics and pass them on to ShowZ?

    My guess because I've seen TFSource descriptions used on their site before, is they used his pics, not the KO company. Either way, its still wrong.

    Crap. I bit. Promised myself I'd wait a year or two for a KO with fixes... ah well.
