    The OS Hounds I've been finding recently have a cigar. :)

    I think this might be one of the most popular KOs that I have seen.

    That's because it's one of the best KO's out there. Not only did they do a stellar job at up-scaling an already fun figure, but they made improvements and added some die-cast parts while they were at it.

    I just ordered one from the most recently-posted eBay link, can't wait! How long did it take for delivery for those of you who also bought one from that seller?

    Just got mine this past Thurs. With cigar, it's a little rubber thing with a red end, looks good.

    All the praise for this KO is 100% deserved. It's just brilliantly done. Just straight up feels like a genuine HasTak release. The metal cab is great, gives him serious heft. And the gold paint on the weapons is a beautiful touch.

    And OMG does he look PERFECT with AoE Leader Optimus, the smaller one. If you want to have a proper AoE collection, you need this big fella.

    I removed the panels from the backs of his hands and tucked them in to make shoulder pads. Holes remain on his hands but IMO it looks better. Great great figure.

    Dang. I need to buy him. That's a great scaling they have right there.

    Most of the AOE KO's are leader Prime scaled and seem to be a significant improvement over the official Hasbro versions.

    It's kind of a shame I seem to be slowly rebuying my entire AOE collection.

    :banghead: 

    Still waiting for a large Galvatron.

    Indeed. I still need to find one of those Leader Class DOTM Megatrons I keep seeing every now and then, but they're ridiculously expensive and if the quality isn't up to snuff, I'd hate to spend upwards of $100.00 on it.

    Not to mention the whole having to wait for the slow boat from China thing.

    Not sure if I've seen the Leader Class version. I've seen the OS one Sir Toys carries, but it's absurdly large- much to large to be anything but a display piece. Now you have me mildly curious. (although not that curious, I have a fantastic custom DOTM Megs who's a slightly oversized leader).



    Speaking of big KO's- I just took a chance and got the "voyager" sized DOTM Bee. He's a PERFECT Human Alliance scale. I'm not a huge fan of the original real HA Bee. I've been waiting for a good HA Bee for years.

    I'll post pictures this weekend.

    Then at some point I'll make time to go all out and paint him properly.

    Actually, the one you mention might be the one I'm thinking of.

    I did this on my voyager figure. Except I tucked them in behind the wheels.

    I'd love a true leader size DOTM Megs. But we probably won't get one due to the OS KO being out there.

    I just ordered this guy off aliexpress. Its very good to hear mostly good things about this KO! Hound also just happens to be my wife's favorite character lol

    And The OS KO DOTM Megatron? His vehicle mode is actually pretty close to scale with ROTF Op's vehicle mode for what it's worth
