Glyph repaint please.
As I posted before, if they did something like this
I'd order it really quickly.
I hope it’s easily differentiated from the original.
Maybe it’s just me but the original yellow looks better.
Looks like the KO has the darker, more organge-y yellow and what looks to be a slightly altered face.
Heh, the new one looks more derpy
Yeah, I don't count the alteration as an improvement.
Agreed, but I do like that darker yellow...
Has anyone seen one of these UI KOs in person yet?
HZJ on eBay has the BB deco, both Boxed and Loose, for a very reasonable price:
HOT SOLDIERS HS MS NA NewAge H1 01 02 03T 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 13 14 15 16 17 | eBay
Based on the measurement shown in the 'Loose' photo, he's about 6-6.5cm tall [aka approx. 2.25"-2.5"], which is the same size as the NewAge original if I'm not mistaken.
Anyhow, tempted to grab one with today's 15% off eBay coupon just to see if the quality is decent - I don't have high expectations, and I'm sure it won't approach the amazing quality of NA's original [which feels similar in quality to the recent Magic Square figures]. If it IS of decent quality, I'll happily snap up any redecos they want to release!
I love this mold, own all 3 decos plus duplicates of BB & GB for my girlfriend to tinker with.
What’s the weird droopy hip skirt thing going on with the pics on hzj’s auction photos?
A mis-transformation - those hip skirts fold into the abdomen.
It’s a weird thing for Hzj to miss because I think he transformed my MS Trailbreaker for more secure shipping.
Just for fun, a little deskbot action at work, with NewAge Goldbug rolling out of DX9's 'Ranton'...
Found this being sold by hzj before it sold out.
Judging by the price and description that is the legit one.
The other eBayers sell them for about $17 (loose) too such as Faithtotalk
Nice option for a slightly cheaper bee - I was thinking about getting Bugbite - shame he only has the one colour of the reissue/KO version.
I still wish that Goldbug had new shoulders...
That's the only thing keeping me from buying him.
Received the Uldaman KO yesterday and he's a pretty amazing little figure. Only negatives (that aren't related to the original mold) I could find are that the weapon storage in alt mode is gone (groove on bottom of foot) and the lower leg parts were reversed which basically just causes one to do an extra swivel to get it into a normal orientation. Because it's connected via ball joints, I was able to easily fix it, however it wasn't necessary at all.
All paint looks good. Some small sprue nubs sticking out here and there. Ball joints were fine until I swapped the leg parts, now the legs are a little loose, but easily fixed with polish if need be.
Overall, would buy again. $13 seemed more reasonable to me for the amount of plastic one is getting so hurray for KOs I guess.
Same here, got it today and I live this little KO guy. One of my figures so far. Only negative is that it doesnt roll. Anything else is awesome.
There's a white one now.
I'm surprised Hzj hasn't got the Goldbug ko in yet. Though he never did get the official Bugbite
C'monnnnnn....give me a Goldbug KO with pointy shoulders since Newage didn't wanna do it themselves.
