    So I bought 5 KO MP car bots from TF-Direct a month ago, and they finally arrived the other day. I just got around to opening them all this morning, and in every box, the plastic has warped to the point that it was almost melted, and it conformed itself around the cars and accessories. The toys themselves were fine, and the boxes themselves are in great shape as well, so WTF happened?!?

    Hey Paul... any chance we could get a comparison photo of these new oversized Legends with a Deluxe figure (like your usual Warpath or Jazz)?

    That OP looks nice but it also looks like at least voyager size. Something tells me that one is too big for that mold.

    Especially if the smaller ones are the original oversized versions.

    Oh wow, I totally missed that. Oh well, if it's that bad, I have a generic seeker to customise!

    Well, pushing a Legends-size to Voyager scale might not be ideal, but it does look like WJ has made some improvements to the molds, and added some joints here and there, so they might hold up alright. I'm rather curious to see how they size up.

    Anyone have an ID on this one.

    It kind of goes with the one I called "Superhuman Samuraizing Synchro".

    Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad? I think is was an import of Ultraman's Gridman. Not 100% sure.

    Where the other one was Synchro, this combination would be Phormo. Although the base figure has Ultraman Zero's head. I wonder if it can still fit the armor over that head.

    Superhuman Samurai was an Americanized version of Gridman, which isn't part of the Ultraman franchise but was produced by the same studio. Although it was very heavily similar to Ultraman.

    I would honestly love to get my hands on some decent kos of the larger scale robots from that series. Especially if they came in some interesting colors.

    Do the OSKO Optimus and Starscream have head/neck articulation?

    Wondering... If these are oversized versions of the oversized versions, standing next to warpath for scale... Are these now basically leader class? (Cw leader scale, of course)
