    Spoilt for choice - exactly the reason I sold my green ones. Now just to wait for comparisons. Jin Jiang will have to price competitvely given NBKs head start

    Or use slightly better materials with no simplifications. I can see a market there, I'd be in it myself.

    I don't know what to do. I'll probably get both. I like yellowstator.

    I'm too deep in the NBK. Seems this will be better for Bot mode.

    Then you could mix and match if the connectors are the same - colour match pending of course. Already though I dont like JJ's Scrapper, what's the black attachment on the forearm and merges into the cab ladder?

    I know NBK's combined mode is a winner as it closely matches GT so this would stay as a S2 combined for me. I'll have Toy World for individual and S1. I think I need to be sold on the JJ and if there are better materials and a good combined mode I can look past the individual bots. It's great to have options though and for those still in on NBK it gives them a variation on a theme by going yellow JJ

    I want this!!! Just hope the simplification can remain at minimum (would have preferred no simplification, but better than NBK is a good step)

    To anyone interested, seems nbk Mixmaster is available for order now on Aliexpress. At least two sellers have him, one seller had him and long haul but the long haul "color" option was grayed out.

    Good luck with Sonicron. I thought about buying one years ago but the reviews were so horrible I decided not to. But at that price I suppose it was worth a try

    Hasbro made me do it ;-)

    At 11$ a pop, you can't get wrong. Same with this devy KO. ;-)

    Although I love what NBK is doing, I find this intriguing.

    If it's inexpensive like NBK, I might find myself double dipping- especially if they do a green one.

    I wonder if it will be compatible when th NBK?

    Yeah, especially to replace scrapper. He’s pretty bad when compared to the other two.

    JinJiang's little Megatron tank was supposed to be decent? I think they also made that Dinoking KO. No clue on quality.

    I hope they make a green.
