:-?
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! ;)
