    Yes, but the point it's not the price of the figure, we were just pointing out that if there will be BWMPs KOs, then there will surely be a lot of people interested, even without the perfect paint application of the official figures.
    I'm not interested in potential BWMPs KOs, it was just an observation, at least on my part.

    Not gonna lie. I would be tempted. The dot print matrix thing is not a big enough draw to me. It's neat but I can't get over how....pixely it looks. I'd be more bothered by losing the forehead insignia, since that will be impossible to cleanly replace with a decal. Plus no official box.

    Especially if they also toss in English voice clips and potential QC fixes. I don't think we'd lose any of the metallic paint apps. There are plenty of premium KOs who have mastered that.

    All of his kibble parts can be removed, pretty much solely for the sake of replicating the toothbrushing scene where he was rendered without most of his "armor". I think they're calling it "Lounge Mode".

    Lord Megatron has tied you to the bed, stripped off his cumbersome parts and is preparing to take you up ‘The Darksyde.’

    Parts-forming.
    :p 

    I don't think I will ever remove the armor parts. Don't really see a need for the feature, but others may.

    I think it's just something they realized they could do and just did it. Like it clearly didn't come at the cost of anything else, and he did show up like that quite a bit by the end of the season.

    So I'm guessing they're using hydrographic printing for Megs and Cheetor. I wonder how much it adds to the cost.

    I would prefer to see a Predacon as the next BW MP.

    You know what. Every Japanese convention we hear of, we predict there will be a new MP reveal and most of them ended as disappointments. But most of us didn't realize the convention that happened when Megatron was revealed. Maybe the next Japanese convention we don't know about will reveal MP44 or MP45.

    LOL. Hydrographic painting? In Vietnam, child labor is probably cheaper. Does it matter? No. As long as it's 220 USD in January, it's getting bought!!!

    I agree. none of the BW MP figures have had KOs so far. can't see why we would get a 180° this far into the line.

    G1 MPs and upscaled classic (potp etc) and movie figures seem to the the focus for the KO companies (at least when it comes to hastak KOs, third party KOs are super popular).

    I can't see us getting a KO of this guy, dinobot or any other beast formers.
