    Thanks!

    Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a lot of new, exciting stuff on display. Certainly nothing we haven't seen better images of elsewhere.

    Looks gappy and sub par. Don't know about the US market but couldn't you find a slightly used MP-01, like Hasbro, for slightly more and it'd have better tolerances?

    i actually like that ko mp-01 better than the real thing. it's clean. not all that black paint on it.

    thanks for the info. i had this before. the build is solid. the chest window, there is a minor gap. the leg rachet is a bit stiff, need to be careful. worth the money.

    So apparently there’s a ko of the 3d printed bw dinobot floating around on taobao, but I’m having no luck finding it. If anyone would be so kind as to share a link if you find it I’d be greatly appreciative C5059B27-42F8-4045-A851-3BB7820B68E9.jpeg

    Yeah. They knocked that off of Oku's work. They're literally stealing from fans.

    Mine came broken from a seller in Canada that poorly packed them. :(  It was a few years back, but to make matters worse, when I moved the leg from bot to jet mode, part of the hinge piece snapped. Ahh, the early days of my purchasing items from eBay.

    I want it too, but haven’t been able to find it on taobao, and the guy who brought it up on Facebook won’t share the info on what seller it is

    Is this the one you're looking for? A local etailer has it for about $30.

    $30 and it’s prepainted? If the quality is decent I might have to jump on one of these myself.

    This is STOLEN from a fellow FAN.

    You do you, absolutely, but know what you're doing.

    And that fan no longer sells it. It’s honestly not much of a different concept than any other ko, they’re all stolen, there’s no moral high ground if you buy any ko
