So...I got my last shipment from KO toys today and - not a big fan of knock offs, but I got the japanese tapes and they were...ok...not great, but ok so I figured I'd get the city commander & ultra magnus (mostly because I wanted to hold the KO mold in my hand and compare it to a Henkei Optimus to make sure it wasn't a KO) and the other two combiner casettes, still sceptic, but they were relatively cheap so why not? It took them 3 weeks to actually send it to me, and when I got them...wow...the box looked like it had been kicked around (dirt marks from a shoe) the ultra magnus kit fell apart in my hands, but I know now that my henkei OP is infact genuine. The tapes came "carded" and I use that term loosly here - one of them had roughly 30% of the very cracked blister glued on, while the other had 2(!!!) blisters glued on top of eachother, these being roughly 50% glued. The tapes themselves looked like they had been assembled by a drunk and painted by a blind person. Both of the combiner faces had thick lead paint over their eyes and roughly an 8th of an inch around them. All tapes were loose, but by unscrewing some screwes and placing all the parts right they felt like the real deal everywhere except for the heads and the chest of raindance - granted they were a bit loose on the originals, but here they were flopping all over the place. The main reason I got them though was the weapons - weapons that ofcourse sufferes from not taking the chrome into account when designing the pegs - they are so thick that you will worry about breaking the tape, mine also came with different kinds of chrome where some weapons are alot darker than the others. So yeah, if you missed out on them then don't beat yourself up over it. PS - never really knew what you guys meant with cheap plastic. It's hard for me to put it into words myself but the movie verse legends...ratchet? (half bot/half bug looking thing that turns into a van) I got as a gift from them felt like it was made out of the same material as those plastic space marines...anyone that can describe it better?
