Ok, there’s no way around it…this is going to be weird. We’re going to take a look at an “exclusive” set of KO W-cassettes. Yes, exclusive KOs..you read that right:
Packaged in a mono-chrome box, Noise, Graphy, Dial & Saur return to the KO world, decked out all in black! Designed specifically after the Takara Encore series, the Dino’s box imitates the “Big Operation” reissues of the other G1 Cassettes. And yes, that totally says ” Enkore”. With a K. For “KO” I guess.
The back of the package is beautifully rendered in the same monochrome style, but more importantly, we get the tech specs/bios and really well done pictures of the animation models for both Leg Out
Taking them out of the box, we get reproduced instructions, VERY well made bio cards, and all 8 weapons in bright chrome silver :
The number of sets produced was limited to only 150. I’m not sure how accurate that is, but it doesn’t really add too much to the value of these guys, give that they are KOs. However, I am going to keep them mint in box and not apply the stickers, which are also done all in black:
Lets take a look at the dinos -
Dial and Saur are in decent shape. Unlike the normal version, these guys do suffer from some pretty legitimate mold breakdown. However, they still are able to combine in robot mode:
For what it’s worth, Leg Out’s face is very defined, which is nice.
While Graphy suffers the worst of the Mold breakdown, Noise is near perfect. Even his weapons fit nice and snug without being too tight. They both combine well enough, but due to Graphy’s bum wing, he doesn’t stand very well, even with his ahead of his time ankle support..
While I love the fact that these guys are “exclusive”, I honestly regret the money I spent and could only recommend the to the most die-hard of Cassette fans (which is me, so I don’t regret the money THAT much…)
More to come! Stay tuned!
