    Holy shit...I never knew this word existed. The more you know.

    And just so I'm not derailing the thread further, I'm trying to decide whether to get KO MP Hot Rod or Tracks

    Go with hot rod, as there really isn't any down side to the figure besides loose legs and can't roll in car mode (if evident on yours), where as tracks will bug you about the backpack.

    my hot rod rolls very well. i think people are just transforming theirs wrong. the knee caps go under the crotch flap when in car mode.

    I thought the KO Tracks fixed the backpack problems though. (?)

    Go for the Hot Rod. It's the better figure, all other things being equal... but of course, it might just boil down to which character you like better.

    Or...


    Is your transformers masterpiece collection missing a fishing pole accessory? Then hot rod is the bot for you. :D 

    Or...

    Do you need a tiny tiny blaster accessory? Mini too-small-for-anything-else Raul? Then tracks is the bot for you. :D 

    Desicions, desicions...

    Yeppers. Oversized g2 Korean (I think? I'll delve into the makers marks after I get some sleep?) Toy show bruticus.

    The box is bigger than Titan devys. Everything is still factory taped and all pieces accounted for, no warping or broken parts... Pristine!

    Edit: While I won't be removing these from their plastic stasis anytime soon, here is a pic online between a g1, the south Korean DSR, and the G2 oversized bootleg I just got.

    Yep, easily Titan devy size.

    Found a collector willing to part with it.

    You'd best save up though... For what I paid, I winced - but then seeing it literally untouched and fully complete in a shiny box - well, money well spent.

    Put it this way... the seller threw in a misb ehobby g1 sunstorm for free. :oops:

    Hey, since we have a new Combiner for TLK, I wonder if the Factories that did the original Beast Hunter Abominus KO will dust off the mold. I would be down for some improved OS KO's in Abominus colors, or a new Torso based off this new torso, helps the proportions a bit.

    Honestly, I just want 1:1 quality KO combiner wars gestalts already.

    (They can start with g2 defensor we never got, as well as battle gaia, guard city, etc.)

    Goofy colored versions always welcomed as well. :D
