    I wish Wei Jiang/LT would do the same quality figure but shrink it down to official MP-10 size.

    I'll wait for BB7 to do their upgrade set for MP-10B like they did for MP-10.

    They've already done it for MP-10 Takara and Hasbro versions so it is only natural.
    Plus they've done kits for the oversized Wei Jiang versions.

    Just need a little help here to shed some light on this recent KO MP-10 release found on eBay. There's about three listings of this KO Takara MP-10, but does anyone know if it's a straight-up KO, or any mods made to this mold? Or...is this a scam, and the sellers are posting up an MPP-10 instead, but saying it's an MP-10?

    Here's the link below for this auction:

    That looks like a regular MP-10KO. And for under $100, I'd think it's the regular sized KO.

    Thanks for taking a look at the auction. Kinda tempted to get this, because I'm considering selling off my KO MP-10 vers 2 (and I've fixed the "sticky-retracting-leg" issue)...to some extent.

    If anyone is considering picking up the the KO shattered glass MP10 in HasTak colors, you can pick up the official version for about the same price or less at BBTS. They've got the official version right now for $99 + shipping. Just keep in mind it does NOT come with SG Roller & Spike.....only the HasTak KO version includes those.

    Ditto. I have a KO MP10 and in hand the grey in the thighs looks darker compared to the official Takara, in pics. I don't have a Takara MP10 but even in the eBay pictures you can see the difference in shades. Not withstanding the lighting will be different between the two pics but I think the differences are noticeable. Ben's KOllectibles also noted differences in the grilles between KO and normal MP10 moulds.

    eBay listing, which matches my KP10 KO in terms of colour

    I see that the recent MP10 KO has a gap in the chest plate area similar to the official Hastak versions. I keep thinking about the oversized Wei Jiang version with its die cast chest doesn't have this issue. I think the best quality KO MP10 would be if Wei Jiang downsizes their MPP10 to standard MP scale.

    I've heard the oversized ones didn't have the chest gap too, but since I don't have one, I can't confirm it. However, I do know the normal sized KOs continue to have it...though not on every single copy. It's been a hit or miss. I know most of mine do. But for all we know, the pictures used in the ebay auction may be of an actual Takara MP-10.

    If anyone is interested, I will be selling (at least trying to) my ko mp-10 (along with an official hasbro trailer) in the next few days. I will post it in the BST thread.

    Yep, I've read nothing but glowing reviews about it. I don't have any room for that big ass thing....and I barely made room for FT's not-Omega Supreme lol. That one...I had to make room for :lol

    I had no desire to own an OS Optimus Prime..and then they turned around and did the Eva and a clear one to boot. I really didn't realize how much bigger he is until I put them on my shelf. They seemed huge...right up until the moment I put Phoenix between them...

    I downsized version of MPP10 is what MP10 should have been. The quality, die cast/heft is far superior to official standard sized Hastak + standard sized KOs.

    Those MP10 KO are terrible quality but interesting: they have big variations from the original mould (in fact they use a completely rebuilt mold).
    I have some of those (v2 KO, UM, Shattered Glass) and I very much like it. But they are terrible quality: don't expect them to be on par with official takara mp10. Buy it if you love and appreciate exotic variations of the mp10 mold

    The Hastak colors SG MP10 KO has pretty good quality.

    my standard takara one is good...not great, but good. His joints range between pretty tight and tight enough...basically he is far from a floppy mess. Everything stays in place as it should. I can't speak to his transformation...as I have never transformed him, but I suspect that that is fine as well. Overall, he was well worth the cost. But now I have an official one...so he has to go.
