    Are the wheels plastic or rubber?
    That should be the giveaway as Official carbots don’t have rubber tyres but most of the KO’s do.

    The official sells for as low as $41. A true KO would be priced lower which this isn't.

    I've made some estimations based on this image, which was recently uploaded to the site.
    From the looks of it, this may very well be an MPM scale Grindor....

    I had to make some assumptions, as there was no reliable scale reference, but this should be accurate to within 5-10% of the actual height.

    For that price and with plastic wheels I’d be guessing official overstock or a “fell off the back of the truck” arrangement. Those are often marketed as a KO anyway as it’s not really an “official” version.
    I am a little surprised at that price for KO or overstock. For an older mould like Tracks you’d expect considerably lower. That’s around the price we were charged for the Sunstreaker KO which was an entirely new mould.
    I have the official Tracks, I’ll get another Tracks (provably the KO) eventually for Alt mode but honestly found the mould pretty underwhelming and kind of hope someone else gives it a better go at some point, Gough that honestly seems unlikely any time soon.
    The redeco’s, be they red or black, hold no real
    appeal for me.
    I’m mainly interested in this kind of thing to get a feel for how long the wait is for KO repaints - namely the next round of anime edition cars (Wheeljack, Prowl, Streak and Smokescreen) Red Alert took years to get an anime KO but Sideswipes plus version seemed to come pretty quick.

    It has the same hinges as the Wei Jiang one, too. But I can't read the text, how do you know it's based on Wei Jiang and not just the irl helicopter?

    Well I don’t really, but I can see the Star of David instead of the five point star that I believe is what the military uses

    I wonder if it has any relation to this
    maxresdefault.jpg

    It's a lot smaller in this image, however its not uncommon for prototype OSKO figures to be the same height as the original

    I tried asking in the ko Road Rage thread, but nobody answered.

    I've seen it mentioned that cutting down the pegs attaching the chest to the shoulders helps make her stay better. How do I cut them dien, though? Do I take off Duke of the length or since of the width?
