MP-18 Streak Bluestreak KO Masterpiece comparison and review

I received a package from TF-Direct.com the other day. It was none other than a long awaited  Masterpiece MP-18 Replica (KO). Here are a few comparison pictures in vehicle mode.

On the KO (LEFT), the window was very clouded compared to the Takara (RIGHT). In hand the difference is not as bad as this closeup. I will be trying to buff it out from underneath in case it is mold release.

Takara (LEFT), KO (RIGHT)

Takara (LEFT) KO (RIGHT)

Takara (LEFT) KO (RIGHT)

Takara (LEFT) KO (RIGHT) I noticed the Z emblem has en extra ring and the Autobot logo is better printed on the KO
The headsculpt is where you will find the biggest difference.
The KO (LEFT) has a softer sculpt in the helmet but has a more symmetrical face. The Takara has a sharper sculpt but something is up with the right side cheek. it sits higher and cuts through the edge of his mouth and not the other. Clearly though, the Takara seems better finished.

If you wanna see them together in robot mode, check out the video below. If you wanna buy cool stuff like this, check out www.tf-direct.com and use code RPA5 for $5 discount.
