    The voyager-sized CW Green Megatron. I must know.

    My god, yes! I have three of these so far and I'm definitely getting more. They are total crap but have a weird kind of charm to them. IF you can find the Chasmosaurus one it's a bit different than the theropods. I have only seen images online, but the Pteranodon looks awesome actually. Or good enough, at least. I'll post some pics later on.

    It's smaller than deluxe size and simplified. I don't remember as it's in a storage tub, but it doesn't have ratchet type joint just simple ones like most modern clip on ball joints. I don't think it rotates.
    It is a simplified but overall decent toy however

    I got my little Quint Judge today. He is smaller than I thought he would be after being described as, "the size of an egg".

    A robin egg maybe.

    He smells like an inflatable pool toy and has tacky, sloppy paint.

    You represent the majority of Jinbao's market but there is overlap and it makes sense not to go up against competition when you shrink your margins so much to provide these at the lower price.

    For some reason this is what I imagine every KO toy or cheap Chinese product in general smells like, and I haven't even bought any yet.

    Very rarely do they, unless it's a flea market special KO. It's not ABS, might be rubber. Explains the smell.

    I meant this one. CW Megatron Green - TF - SirToys.com This one I have seen next to an '06 Classics voyager Optimus, so I know he's about short voyager size, but I just need to know if his turret rotates.

    So are "Mech Fans" a rebranded "Machine Boy" or separate third parties?

    Yes it does, it's a tight joint, so I advise you loosen the screw first.

    At this point I'm just going to assume they won't be bothering with Onslaught. Still pretty bummed that Frooticus won't be completed. Kind of tempers my interest in their future products, especially with some of the other companies upping their game.
