    So, I'm guessing the lack of response is a no?

    well, in those colors, yeah. But in flat black with a little bit of purple highlights and a new head... it could be promising...

    IDK, maybe. The plastic looks cheap and thin.

    I'm wondering how that thing could transform. The original mold needed a good deal of force in places, though they've bulked it up in places that would make proper transformation impossible, not to mention the head looks too big to fit in the chest like the original, and I don't even know how the cockpit works here.

    Too bad there's no sense of scale with these KO pics. One would think having a ruler or something to show just how oversized an oversized KO is.
    The paper back-drop may be useful, though we'd have to assume it's just basic paper not anything special. Letter or Legal would both be 8.5" wide.

    I've never actually had the mindwipe mold, so I cant comment on it. I honestly see this thing as awesome fodder for a Megatron custom. It looks like the cockpit winds up on the chest somehow. Would that even be possible?

    Get a real mindwipe. He's the best voyager in the revenge of the fallen lineup.
    To those who can't get the blades to lock in: pivot the wrists first.

    If you like Jet robots There are few cleaner examples in vehicle mode.
    I like that its not dependant on balljoints but is still very posable. The result is

    There is also hunt for the decepticons strafe. Which I picked up for the technobots homage, and in favor of the design quality.
    That one is about equally vibrant to this knock off.

    Not at all, the inner chest ends up on the bottom of the rear of the jet. The cockpit would have to be either on the wrists (like the real thing) or on the feet.
    That probably means it's a parts-former, the cockpit either just stores in the chest or they molded a fake one there.

    Also, that paper backdrop can't be 8.5" x 11" (the wings fold back and in, but for comparison's sake they're left unfolded)

    ...and probably not 11" x 17"

    So... I got no clue on size.

    The plastic looks absurdly thin (especially the wings and arms), and the blue stuff on the legs make it impossible to properly transform -- there'll be a wide gap between the front and back halves of the jet.
