    What are your thoughts on the Chinese version of Dai Atlas? Is it authentic?

    It's a KO, but I honestly wouldn't mind getting ahold of one. He's not one of those bots that are of enough interst to me to cough up the kind of money that they want for an original.

    No electronics? Mine came with electronics, even tested it and it works. Although it sounds weird and wouldn't leave batteries on it due to fear of it catching on fire!! :lol

    HAHAHAHA, I just tested my Dai Atlas KO and the electronics work. Sucky part about it is the fact that it began to smell like if something was burning. I only had it on for less than 30 seconds and the batteries were hot as hell. Now I'm afraid of leaving my Dai Atlas alone, afraid that it may burst into flames. :lol

    I had one for a while with working electronics. Plastic quality was obviously worse than authentic TFs, but better than, say, dollar store KO's. A lot of parts didn't fit right and the Micromaster came with horribly loose joints. It was displayable but a sneeze would make some part (wing, etc) fall off. It eventually went from whence it came...eBay.

    It's not bad. The one I had couldn't transform properly since one of the metal rods extended a bit too far to either side.

    Not bad as opposed to the expensive original, though I've replaced it with his Brave series repaint who is much better.

    Especially considering how reasonable the price usually is. I had a stripped authentic DA body, so I picked one of these up 2 BCs ago just for the parts.

    Quality is tons better than the KOs you get a Big Lots these days....
