You can get the official Miria for just a bit more from HLJ on sale... Well, if that sell is still happening.

I'll check it out...thanks!

 

EDIT:  Alas, she's no longer on sale.

@jenius have you done a review on them? I can't find one.

 The KOs? No, I own all the originals so no need for me to buy crappier versions of what I already have :)

I have the KO Hikaru and Roy. If you are up to reviewing them, I can provide my copy for this purpose.

I ordered the Milia PF when it was on offer (too good a deal to pass), now I am missing a PF max. I am tempted by the KO max. No one know if we will get as good a deal on Max as with Milia. Since Max is more popular, I am not keeping my hope high, so the KO version is super tempting. Since the handling of the KO version is worst, I could keep my non PF Arcadia version for messing around with but the KO PF version for just display.

What is your review of the KO's?

I am not at all good at providing review.

Just my personal take on this:

- Looks is good. The PF level tampo printing is as good as the original (have not use a magnifying glass to compare, but good at viewing distance).

- The knee joint is not as firm as the original

- The landing gear cover on the legs seems to be slightly less tidy. Not as seamless as the original. I hardly use the landing gear and I fiddle with the cover to get it to look good and leave it at that. So not a deal breaker for me.

- The head for the 1S is a bit different, but not enough to cause any visual problem for me, I have not seen their rendering of the 1J head since I have have the 1S

Overall, for the price of under $130 shipped, I call it good value.

If you just display it, I think I will not care too much. But if you like to handle/transform it often, then the joints will bug you a bit.

That's a good review. Thanks.

$130 shipped? Where did you get that sort of pricing?

Crappier versions are perfect for our 6-year old :pardon:

It only makes sense if you are saving on the shipping cost.  For me that would be about $40 American.  I'm waiting for the VF-1S to go on sale.  I want it for a cubical toy.  :p

Isn't that kind of expensive for a KO  ?

I think these are PF editions.  Price is pretty good.

Yeah, I’m not convinced enough to pay that price for any of them yet. If there was a more unique deco like low-vis PF, I’d try it out but still prefer under $100 for a SS Equipped VF-1.
