G1 KO Mirage

G1 Mirage will probably not get a reissue since the mold is lost/stolen. So, I decided to get this KO. When I got the package, it was poorly packaged. The flap on the box was bent. I was disappointed but it didn't bother me too much because I don't collect boxes. The figure is supposed to be surrounded by a bubble which is supposed to be glued to the back of the box. The bubble was not glued at all. I was OK with this because the figure seemed undamaged but it's worth noting so people will know what they are getting when they buy these KOs.

With the shotty packaging, I was concerned there would be issues with the figure but it turned out that the quality of the figure was very good. The only problem I had was that the should mounted weapon was missing a screw, which I easily replaced. The figure contains die-cast parts, chrome and rubber tires just like the original. The stickers are OK quality. Not terrible but not great.

The box and instructions are almost exact replicas of the original. I couldn't spot the difference. It comes with the tech spec decoder as well.

Overall, I'm really happy with this KO.

I wanted to post a photo of all my G1 Autobots (up to the end of the G1 cartoon) because I think it looks cool just seeing them all together. Ironically, the only Autobot car (not including minibots) that I'm missing from the season 1 & 2 is Wheeljack, which is the only Autobot car that I had as a kid. Hound, Red Alert, Infernal and Trailbreaker and all MISB, that's why I'm only displaying their boxes.

KO G1 Sunstreaker

The rumour is that Sunstreaker, Mirage and Wheeljack's original molds are damaged/lost/stolen, so these guys are not expected to be reissued. Looking through my collection, I realized that Skids and these three were the only cars from season 1 & 2 that I was missing (not including minibots since I don't really collect them). I got the Takara Encore Skids reissue, which sucks as I expected but that's for another review. I decided to take a chance on the KO reissues and get Mirage. He was pretty good, so I got Sunstreaker.

Yup, that's right. I bought hand upgrades for my Optimus Prime. That's hard core! I didn't think you could have so much fun posing hands but it's actually as much fun as playing with the actual toy! Each finger is individually articulated with three points of articulation for each finger, including the thumb. One other thing I really like about these hands is that they have molded in slots for him to hold his gun (if I had a gun for him). I also have the "Buster" Optimus Prime, which is a variation of this mold where his gas tanks transform into a gun and he can hold that gun just fine. I give these hands two thumbs up

And for those of you who are in the know, you would have noticed that yes, I did apply some custom paint touch ups to my Revenge Of The Fallen Prime!

Ultra Magnus

G1 Ultra Magnus was one of the Transformers that I had as a kid and it's really good to be able to have him again. Ultra Magnus was reissued around 2002/2003 but this was the time when a lot of G1 Transformers were being reissued and I was more selective in which reissues I picked up so I never got Ultra Magnus.

Robots In Disguise (RID) Optimus Prime

I finally got Robots In Disguise Optimus Prime! I've been looking for this guy for awhile to add to my collection. And just because he was on sale, I also got the Transformers Prime: Optimus Prime (RID version). More Optimus Primes to come! I also recently got the Transformers United: Laser Optimus Prime and I have a KO black G1 Optimus on the way. I also plan to get the re-release of the Commemorative series Powermaster Optimus Prime.

Knight Morpher Screecher comes from the Hearts of Steel comics, where the Transformers are in the past and are older types of vehicles. Any Transformers fan can tell that Screecher is obviously Starscream. I think Mastermind Creations is doing a great job with this series. I didn't get Knight Morpher Cyclops because he's very big and pricey and I'm not really a fan of the look but they did a really good job with him as well.

MP-12 Sideswipe

Today, I will be reviewing Takara Tomy's latest Transformers Masterpiece toy, Sideswipe, or Lambor, as he is known in Japan.

I think it's a great looking toy and a great representation of the Generation 1 Sideswipe cartoon character but I'm not quite sure that I would say that it's a great representation of a Masterpiece toy.
