    Yeah, you could give him an enormous diaper like the MP version and make him look 2.

    I wonder if the chrome on this will have the same issue with the official MP one where it rubs off if you look at it funny.

    I highly doubt it. Based on recent history with KOs I'll bet it won't have such issues because

    1. It's a KO (albeit an oversized one).
    2. It's a KO from Wei Jiang.

    Are KOs known for having better quality chrome? Or just Wei Jiang? Either way, huzzah!

    These days most KOs of official Takara TFs are known to have better quality than their officials....some extremely higher quality. It's been a pleasant realization for most of us. Yes Model MP seekers for instance.

    How times have changed, we used to say the cheap knock off was fragile and unsafe, nowadays it's the official that's like that. Lol

    Tell me about it. MP Tracks is a perfect example. Now we have 4 KO MP36 on the way from different companies. Once my official Takara MPs on preorder arrive after the end of this year, I may just stick to the KO versions for future Takara MP releases unless it is a repaint of a Hasui era MP that I really want.

    It kind of worries me that it took Wei Jiang so long to release another MP based figure outside of the MP10 mold.

    They have many, many ongoing projects. I wouldn't worry too much.

    Yeah but who knows how many moons it'll be before their next OS MP.

    I think they are also doing one of the KO regular sized MP36 but under a different name.

    Yeah, I want them to make EVERY character in this OS MP style. It might be a while. Hopefully Ratchet will follow pretty quickly and other repaints of Ironhide and Megatron too. I'm still hoping they do more repaints of MPP10 and its trailer. So, I feel you.

    I'd like to see them focus on OS versions of the MP line and regular sized KOs of the MP line.
