Can't say that I'm not a little interested in this. But with KO stuff, I wanna wait for pics and review first.

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.


Are you sure you're putting the torso piece on the best you can? It's sitting almost a half-inch too low and looks terrible. Try fitting on the top of the piece first and then snapping the bottom in second...

I wouldn't say a 1/2 inch but it was slightly off centered. The middle of the chest plate doesn't quite come out when you snap into place like the FP versions flames do. The paint they used isnt quite as vibrant of a silver, I might go back over it with some mithril silver.. Also the two tabs at the top of the chest plate that you would snap in first before the bottom are a little small, a little exacto knife work would help IMO..

To be honest after messin with it for a day it holds up better once its been attached to rodimus for awhile. The arms and legs are a bit more firm . I switched the face plate out with the protector one and it holds a tad bit better. I wish it had came with the chrome fins, would have been really awesome.

Doubt it on both parts.. I would be suprised if the targetmaster was included since it was a add on to begin with when released by FP..The chrome fins might but its a big might

I know when I changed the Ko face plate out with one from protector it was still loose. It's really the only problem I have had with this set. I wonder if this face plate would help at all..

:-?
Started putting this fella together last night... a little disapointing.

Actually, I suppose I should give it a bit more of a go, but the feet dont clip together all that well, they keep popping open.

The arms wont grab the shoulder wheels very well, if at all.

The chest piece wont clip into the upper chest/neck part of the body, it keeps popping off.

Now I dont know if its because of the mold im using, its the Sons of Cybertron Crystal Rodimus. Im gonna dig out my Classics Rod to see the difference and perhaps the Battle in Space version? :-?

The silver paint apps are a little sloppy, colouring over the lines and the odd smudge.

Havent fiddled with the trailer left overs yet but I would assume being in one piece that it will be ok! :lol:

:D
So Ive given this kit a bit more time and effort.... guess its not toooo bad. :-?
Ive managed to loosen up the chest piece which now pops like it should but the little tabs which grip the upper chest of Rodimus are still a little small, so perhaps a couple of tiny drops of super glue or nail polish might help build them up?

Watched a couple of YouTube reviews of the KOs which suggested filing off a small amount of plastic from the recess where the shoulder wheels sit.
Might try that tonight.

Might try a little glue/polish on the tabs which clip the leg pieces together as one of them keeps popping open.

I dont expect KOs to be perfect, so I guess I shouldnt be affraid of a little work with them! ;)
