    More Malaysian supermarket KOs

    First up, Machine Boy Alteration Man Bomb & Rhinoceros. They come with cyber planet keys so I guess they must be KOs of Cybertron Toys. Anyone know who?

    I haven't had that much of an issue with is arms not moving, though. When I opened the figure, his arms were too loose, so I had to tighten them.

    On my figure, if I loosen the screws, the arms become floppy, and there's still some collision when you raise the arms to be horizontal with the shoulders.

    Deformation Auman is some kind of Die Cast Metal Lamborghini. Is this is a KO? IT looks more like a Roadbot. I'm not exactly sure about size but might fit in with KO MPs. Comes in Green or Red. Approx £10

    I find myself wishing they'd put as much effort into the robots as they did into the packaging design. :) 

    Are they oversized? Interesting. How big?

    It's barely noticable but I think it was like 1/4 inch or something dumb like that.

    received my KO MP ratchet today. Mabye the worst MP KO ive bought. It looks nice..but DAMN i feel like ill smash it if I TF it again.

    I seen a guy on WISH selling a DMK2 Bee kit. I bought it and it finally came. I was hoping it was a KO DMK kit. Nope..scammed..i was sent a crappy DOTM upsized bee. I would have liked it..but damn it seriously a flaming ball of shit. so floppy and car mode wont go together.

    On to the next KO! hahaa

    Thanks @nater
    @SMOG I guess they're about deluxe sized. I Googled armorhide and tfwiki tells me he was scout so it's as nater says, 'slightly oversized'

    Ah crap, sorry to hear that.

    The only KO TF I've bought from WISH is the Nemesis Evasion OP. It was cheaper than eBay and I also received it in it's original packaging, unlike some sellers on eBay who like to send them without packaging.

    Another great deal I've recently seen on WISH is the OS Powerglide, Starscream, Megatron, Optimus, Hot Rod and Bumblebee for £5 each, shipped.

    why ias there not been a MP10-V-SG? I want an SG deco voyager size G1 Prime, and why aren't there trailers for their size? even upscaled G1 trailers would work.

    I had the alteration man black convoy, don't bother with it. It crumbles apart like a wet tissue after a couple transformations.

    I was disappointed with mine at first, too... but the second transformation back and forth was much smoother, and I sanded a few of the tabs that were sticky. Still has that issue where some joints are way too tight, and they put pressure on other joints that aren't so tight... but it's better after you work it in. Definitely doesn't feel as good as the original, but it does the job.

    Just bought me a couple of KO Kremzeeks at Ali Express. No idea of the quality, may be stock photo, will post a pic in a month when it arrives.

    It's a KO. Word on the street is it's worth paying a little bit more to get the THF (Toy House Factory) version due out soon as it's reported to be a bit better quality and comes with all 6 tapes. I think it's still preorder most places though.
