    generally if you want improved or as good as KOs, you need to stick to Wei Jiang, Robot Hero, and BB7. Folks like KBB and Takasa Tony are somewhat hit or miss, but still generally worth the gamble. The rest... well gamble if you're ok with getting some duds.

    BB7's seekers are great, much better than the originals.

    This is gorgeous. It makes even the Takara copy and the original Hasbro copies look like the actual KOs.

    well i ordered something before the latest run of negatives came in. i assumed its a scam, but i rolled the dice anyway. my package should be here either this week or next, if it arrives that is.

    i think ebays eta is tomorrow through the 27th, so i still have a couple weeks before i can claim with them.

    the Yes Model Seekers and Coneheads are of higher quality than the originals. KBB as well, to a lesser extent (their Thundercracker just massacres the US version though... it's WAY better in every way, from the mkre vibrant blue plastic to the silver paintes chest). KBB is a subtly different mold, while yes model is more of a straight up KO.

    While I'm at it, the old iGear Seekers were arguably improvements on the original mp-3 mold, achieving the more real world accurate jet mode while more closely resembling the cartoon model than the official version.

    IDK if its KO or not but theres a guy selling refurbished mp-9s and those things are BOSS. i got one and it's like a completely different toy

    MPP-10 (upsized op) is better in every way.

    the upsized evasion op is so much imlroved it is essentially a new toy. all they took was the basic engineering... almost every part is different.

    Really, almost all the KO upsized movie figures have diecast and are superior or equal quality to the officials.

    the upscaled Titans Return Skullcruncher has an improved leg transformation.

    the oversized TLK voyager megatron (rendsora) has diecast and new parts to cover his forearm gaps. a forthcoming new version will incorporate the leader class face mask gimmick.

    the upscaled warbotron ko has better combiner mode ankles and also matches CW devastator's size.

    the KO soundblaster has gold painted trim around his chest thst the official one lacks and is otherwise equal

    Yes model have fixes just like KBB. They have a longer more supportive tab to connect the cockpit into the waist, better shoulder joints and reworked knee joints to remove all wobble. They are very solid and not just better quality but have been worked on a lot

    If that was through zhenbozhenbo what's his name, his items have all been delisted. I got an email from EBay about it just now.

    Edit: he's no longer a member of Ebay.

    yeah, i got a update today too.

    "We had to remove this listing from the site and you're not required to complete the transaction. If you've already sent payment, the sale should process as normal and you don't have anything to worry about. If you have any questions about delivery, please check tracking or contact your seller. If you run into any trouble along the way eBay is here to help. Please visit the Resolution Centre to help resolve any problems you may encounter.
    This user is no longer registered on eBay."

    i guess that 24.99 USD that went towards mpp10, will just have to go towards something else now --- that wont be hard.. another 10 dollars aussie and its a mechinic master
