The pre-orders are available for just the Armor, or for the set.

I've bought from this store in the past and they rock..super fast shipping and great service.. I have the original release but the other version they have sounds interesting. Anyone know of a place selling a KO SG roddy,wildrider? Im not shelling out more cash for a Authentic one to go in Ko armor :P

With shipping it came out to $66 bucks shipped to texas via USPS priority..

:shock: Wow, to ship from Aces to the U.K. would total $95! Pass!
I'll stick with $70 @ Chimungmung I think?

I have just snapped up a Crystal Sons of Cybertron set for the Crystal Rodimus to go with this KO set! A bargain for £30 which makes up for my recent Customs charge!! :P

I so wanna make this...

Huh?

Protector Armor is Red, Shadow Scythe is Black.

Acestoystore appears to have 2 different versions of this KO. One to fit with Wildrider and one to fit with SG Rodimus. There's a bit of a price difference between the two for some odd reason...

The "Premium" version just appears to have different paint application... less red, more purple... as to fit more with SG Rodimus instead of Wildrider. Looks like purple-tipped spoiler, silver hands instead of red... purple flames on the chest... few other little details.

Have you tried going through the order process? I think it has the shipping cost towards the end. Just like how RK has it.

The"premium version" I think is going to be colored more for Sg rodimus and less for Wildrider since both ar slightly different. Aces toy store.com has the regular shadow scyther listed as well as a "Purple version" which I think is geared more towards the SG rodimus. The "Premium version" is misleading I guess..Expect a slightly different color scheme, thats all...

I intend to pick up the one with 'less purple' on it?

What I mean is, the version which has more black/dk grey rather than the purple paint apps?

I have just picked up the Sons of Cybertron set with Crystal Classics Op and Rodimus in their full transparent glory so I can make my own...

I received my Ko Shadow Scyther kit today from Aces toy store. Lightning fast shipping, got it from cali in 2 days with regular ground shipping.

The kit itself comes in a box much like the original from Fansproject , the double clamshell packaging and the accesories in the indivdual chamber bags

Image

I have the kit on a RTS custom rodimus im doing and suprisingly it fits really well.. I was worried the most about the feet pieces not being secure but they fit the best out of all the pieces . The shoulder parts fit but they don't quite grab like the FP version does. They stay in place with no modding, especially on the crystal rodimus.

Image

The chest plate fits very well but the flames that come out of the chest plate don't really move out at all. The piece is secure and hold sonto both Rodimus very well. Now for the helmet.. It literally just sits on Rodimus' head with no grab what so ever. The kit comes with the red wildrider face plate but it doesn't help at all. pretty much the worst part of the kit.


Image

All in all I think its a great set. I'm suprised the kit is as good as it is since the Ko 3rd party sets are known for being POS but this kit changed my opinion. It actually fits better on the Crystal Rodimus than it did on the BiS rodimus. The kit did not include the chrome wing pieces but did come with the scythe, the handshake gimmick piece, the gun and the wildrider face plate. I'd give the set about a 7/10. Not very many paint mishaps and all of the pieces fit together well with virtually no gaps... I picked it up at

im not sure why but i just think this looks utter crap....it just doesnt seem to look like it belongs on wildrider and coz of the coloring it looks wrong on SG hotrod because its in wildrider colors.

I really wana see what this preimum version looks like and also to see if they make a clear version

There is no "Premium" version.. Since it's a ko of a 3rd party item the quality wont improve over what I disclosed in the previous post. The coloring wont be altered except for a version with purple on it. Since I do not own a actual Sg rodimus or a henkei wildrider my comparison pics wont show what the Ko set will look.

In some cases the Ko shadow scyther kit seemed to fit better than the fansproject Clear protector kit in some cases. I would love for reprolabels to make a Sg sticker set for Shadow scyther, the one they made for protector were sweet!
