I love the perfect black & white color match of USA Viper with its great glossy body shape. It is the best of 4 models only on the car mold, but just fine for the robot because it is not that movable with its lower part.
For Korea’s RX-8, I don’t know whether it should have 1 more microphone or light on the roof. Its color is the 2nd best of 4, the whole body is painted, not just the plastic color. Besides, it has a Korean wording “police” that is really funny. The transformed robot is shock waved, with gun on his left hand, its pale blue/white color made you believe he is a nice guy, but it should belong to the bad guy ,Decepticon.
For China’s RX-8, its body also has a Chinese wording too with fine decals. Basically, familiar with WRC one, you could refer to my previous comment.
I love Japan’s Subaru most though it is not much verify but the design is the best, a great color match. It is my best favor of these 4 models, its engine could change to gun, rather than the exhaust pipe does.
To conclude, the joint and metal parts are same as the original, I think they are ok. Just be aware during the RX-8 transformation, the door hinges are easy to loose, while the rest are ok. I bought so many items of the BT collection, when I display them with my original BT, I didn’t notice they are KO version at all. If you want to collect something special, you could consider them also.
