    Your best bet would be want-listing them. Given that they're in shampoo plastic and culturally-esoteric, I'm guessing these may have been one-off(ish) (as in production-run, not just one set), and may have evaporated already in the wild. The real cheapo-stuff tends to do that (these do look amazing though!). Paul is great about snagging stuff in his travels if he knows you're looking for something.

    Yeah looks like Sixshot based on the wheels on his shoulders and the wings on his chest. And who knows when they'll actually get all the Dinobots out, they're just on the roadmap.

    I really hope they can get their Gnaw out at a decent price-point, if so I'll buy like 5 or 6 of them to replace my TR versions.

    Edit - Hmmm, looks like Show.Z has a 3-pack for $40 shipped. Not bad!

    If Sixshot is a decent price, I might bite. I just got their Galvatron today and, lack of locking shoulders and limited posing options for the fusion cannon aside, I quite like him. I'm quite excited for my Magnus to arrive.

    ...I just keep spiralling further and further into the rabbit hole here.

    I thought it might some kind of Ko too. I'm guessing it's Mp. I'm honestly not That familiar with it, not so big on mp toys

    It's MP Hot Rod - The KO is 1:1 so the size is the same.

    Um... it seems like the version of Rodimus that they have in that list has a much different deco than the one I got. Didn't know they were doing this one.

    And if these are supposed to be appropriately scaled, does that mean that their versions of Bumblebee/Cliffjumper aren't upscaled at all?

    So... are MechFanToys the continuation of MBT?

    Is it a KO, or just a pilfered and unpainted factory reject?

    Nope. Or at least.

    Remember that both hound and prime are voyager size, while here, optimus is bigger

    Is that definitely the Voyager version of Prime? I don't know the AoE/TLK design well enough to recognize it at a glance.
