    I'll pick up a couple of these KO RX-8 Molds to continue my alt collection... since the line seems to have been discontiued. :( 
    I picked up a few other KOs B4 .. you can see in the picture below.. some are nice.. some are crap.



    My KO Binaltech Collection: see picture below!

    White "Hound" Mold- 8/10 Quality: Metal Version
    Excellet KO here. nice stiff joints, easly posable. Paint OK. Head mold is where it lacks.. although not too bad.. seems like they molded the original head as one piece. Nice Gun.. same as originals. Window plastics is cheap but clear!

    Victory White "Dead End" Mold- 4/10 Quality: Metal Version
    This one pretty sucks... :(  paint is just OK.. joints not to stiff.. parts fit together very loosly. Very top heavy.. Feet do not align very well.. hard to stand up and pose. Head mold ok - facepaint very bad. Gun is all black and warped. Tires do not fit on rims very well.. had to trim off some excess plastics. Windows plastics are not clear (foggy & cheap rubbery clear plastic)

    Chinese Homeland Police Deco "Prowl" Mold- 9/10 Quality: Plastics Version
    Very Nice Toy! great quality for a KO. Paint is very nice and clear. Clear windows plastics - not rubbery! Gun and night stick Very Good quality. Joints nice and stiff, not top heavy! Very posable! Tires/rims goood. Head OK. Can almost pass as a "real" alternators - highly recommended.

    Silver "Smokescreen" Mold- 3/10 Quality: Metal Version
    Very poor Quality :(  Paint smells.. probably alot of Lead. very top heavy & Joints very loose - you breathe on it and it falls over. No gun came with it - :( . Windows Plastics very rubbery feel and not very clear.. foggy. Wheels Good.. head Good. The back license plate reads "SLVR STRK" although the mold is of smokescreen with silverstreaks spoiler.. "Franken Streak"

    It appears the also scraped off the Mazda badge.

    which is a shame since I work for a Mazda dealership and wanted to get a few more RX8s for customers and co-workers. the Meister on my desk gets a lot of attention.:thumb

    Dangit, I'd love to get (if it is of decent quality) a silver and red Mazda RX-8. Both look nice and would be great for custom work.

    Unless Hasbro completely undoes its plans, no.

    . . . back on topic, I really want to find a US-friendly seller* who has these for a reasonable price . . .
