    Got my OS TLK Megatron and Sqeeks just now and WHOA. I had seen all the pics of that Megatron but I was just not prepared for the size of him. He's a very impressive figure between the shear size and the added articulation and ratchets. Oh those sweet ratchets. Like the only negative about him is that everything was upsized including the hand holes. Would have liked if he could hold some standard 5mm sized weapons. But that's a minor nitpick.

    Sqeeks is a decent figure in his own right. Got the "clean" version, which looks much nicer. Didn't seem to notice any improvement in the articulation, though I don't own the original, but I like the little bit of added diecast. Even as an upscale I wasn't prepared for heft of either of these figures. I hope this one gets released in some other colors. Would like an orange scooter out of the mold in particular.

    I was thinking the same thing! Hopefully they will also add some forearm/leg covers to hide the hollowness like they did for TLK megatron's forearms.

    Yeah. In Canada, we usually call it "hockey tape" because you wrap your stick with it.

    It's a a kind of tape with a fabric backing instead of plastic or paper, which makes it both grippy and durable. I have a roll of black tape and I'll cut off small strips and insert them into ball sockets or other joints to increase tensio or friction. It's similar to using nail polish, but a bit more versatile.

    Cheers! O don't know the British English term for this as I've not encountered it. I'll have to check what it is in Japanese, too.

    I'm actually also looking for some tape that has rubber on the top, so that I can cut small bits and make "heels" for some of my less sturdy TF feet (like OSKO back AOE Grimlock).

    Yeah, just Google "hockey tape" or check on eBay... It's grippy.


    That reminds me... Time to break out the sticks again, thanks @SMOG

    Same to be honest. I haven't been interested in the existing OS combiners, but I definitely need those dinobots to have some size to them. And if they can add some improvements to the molds while they're at it, all the better.

    After getting my OS TLK Megatron, I'm also hoping for an oversized Infernocus too.

    Do you have that on Sirtoys? I'd really love to get my hands on that, used to have the non Thomas version my Great Grandfather bought me.

    You forgot to mention the inevitable OSKO Voyager/Deluxe Dragon combined, in the (onestep?) Black and red colours...

    It must happen...

    Are you referring to Dragonstorm? I didn't really forget, I just only have Skullitron of the other dragons so far and it was such a disappointment I put them all out of my mind. I don't know if Dragonstorm has any issues, but I'd buy an oversized one in a heartbeat if it's the quality of these other OSKOs. If they can make Skullitron and Steelbane with their issues fixed I'd gladly get those too.
