    Which sellers would people consider a "Principle Supplier" of these other than HZJ ?

    I just wondered who might have a communication line open with them so I could ask them about the White Mech Combiner repaint's availability.

    Yes I quoted myself lol
    So the Steel Knight arrived... all alone. Waiting on a reply from Showz Store to see where my DA-07 is currently docked. Off topic, the Steel Knight is way way over priced. Feels cheaper than an old MechWarrior kit, and minus everything metal. Just glad I only bought the one.

    So, anyone know what’s the story with this plateau wolf branding? Recently got four mech suits from hzj, but the differing boxes made me curious to do a quick search on these threads (hence this reply to your post:rolleyes: )...

    The Plateau Wolf pair were a collaboration with Design Mech Hero.

    So the different boxes were probably made to make them look special and to stand out from MFT's regular offerings.

    On a related note, it will be interesting to see if the Special Forces of the Universe pair:

    Will get their own unique packaging as they are a collaboration with ModFans.

    Do we know if the Cosmo Maneuver Unit's cockpit is supposed to have the same stressing issues as the Diabattles cockpit?

    Combined KO DA07 with my original TT Diabattle V2, color match pretty well, paint quality is not as good as TT, sprue marks, and plastic are not as shiny as TT, some of the joints are a bit lose but it holds pose without problem.

    And I found that the left shoulder on all KO Dianuats are lower that the right shoulder, clearly it is mold problem.

    A part of me hopes this is true as i'll have even more incentive for major modifications to the KO dianauts without guilt. Can you please take pictures of your KO dianauts ? I have a few but none have the problem you mentioned.

    That looks interesting. Are we going to receive figures in scale with Dianauts that look like this (or that are unique from Takaras Dianauts)?

    If something that small is broken, it's broken. Best you could maybe do is glue it back on and never move that limb, maybe try pinning the ball joint itself to the body if you're good with that fine of a detail work, or just using him as "battle damage soldier" and slopping a bit of red paint on his shoulder and arm.

    Remove his legs as well and he can become a recruitment officer:

    Go to Amazon and order a pin vise with some mm bits. I have bits going down to .4mm that I use for various things. Should be small enough to help you fix it.
