    1st I have to say, as Chinese, I feel so shame.
    I always love 3rd party producet, and sometimes dont mind to buy KO if they are really kind of running good, or hard to find.
    But I dont really like someone who is doing KO other's (3rd party) prdouce and said that they are 3rd party and not KO.

    well, maybe you think this is off topic, but I just want to warn you about the Quality of the Jizai X-01 (X Transbot) Powerglide:
    from the post of ACtoys:
    X

    a member buy this thing couple hours ago, and let's see what happen, please understand, the FPJ are selling their CA-03 around 250 RMB in China, so Jizai are selling the same, but 1st, they say they are using the best plastic, and the quality will be better then any other 3rd party company even Hasbro(Even I think...FPJ was pass the Hasbro already...sorry), and the plastic is acturally like some cheap Chinatown KO toys, you may go there and found that before, or if not, just go the Big Lots, you will find almost the samething.. and before you will easy to found some Crack before you play, so what the hell with this thing?

    and from what Xtransbot's weibo say: Do what Hasbro dont do, and sell with a price that no 3rd party will do...
    and now I will put a same words as what that ACtoys' member reply that: You are selling some cheap plastic with the same price as FPJ, but worst quality ever, and Xtranbot even dont take out the org-logo from their instroduction.

    Oh, after this reply the Xtransbot just reply it again: "Xtransbot just doing it instand that you need to pay couple thousand RMB for the Org one from Japan( As I remember, the real one is selling like around 500~600 USD?)." but what I really wanna say is: KO still is KO, even they change their name and don't use their org name CHMS, we still know what's going on there.

    so everyone please look out, this Item's quality is not deserve a price of 3rd party produce. You can easy to get any Fake Cheap KO for under 10. Well, if any of our sponser store carry this...sorry..I have to say sorry about just tell out the truth.

    There's always the oversized, diecast Superalloy figure that's coming. The Superalloy Wheelie was something special.

    I'm more bummed that his face still sticks out underneath the plane like on the original. I assumed this design would fix such a glaring stupidity.

    Still, Superalloy all the way.

    Yes the same guy who made superalloy wheelie is making powerglide, but ko toys is knocking off powerglide and wheelie and showing them as there own CHMS ...the ko toys versions might be really bad quality only time will tell...

    I believe the original Jizai figure had the face on a hinge so it could rotate in, leaving the bottom of the jet flush.

    Hopefully Superalloy will do that as well. I can see KOTOYS cheaping out on things like that.

    I believe CHMS makes this toy. KOtoys is just one of the distributors. There are others.

    KOToys isnt a designer. They just carry CHMS. The problem is KOToys doesnt do QC and just sells crap that hasnt been inspected. There is another Ko company in China that is emerging that does QC. Autobot78 deals with them.

    Also Xterry may be correct, but I'll always remember him as the guy who faked finding Lugnut at Target and got frontpaged. Hes known for ruses just an FYI.

    Looks like they rushed the molds to beat superalloy, better to wait for quality instead of a rush job to pump out 4-5 different versions with poor molding.

    Actually... How much is this figure? If it's less than $20, I'd be fine picking it up while waiting for Superalloy, just so I can mess around with the design.

    It should be noted that Superalloy hasn't announced any plans for recolors. Since the CHMS one will have several recolors, it might make sense to get Powerglide from Superalloy, and from CHMS get a Hot House, Powerrat or Bay Boy repaint.
