These are super amazing shots! Keep them coming!
Not sure. I just really like R-Blade's design, so...
Thank you both.
lol I neither read, speak nor write any of the three but I have watched enough hen-, I mean, anime to recognise them.
This is sort of disappointing. I was looking forward to a smaller version.
SEGUE: Is there a KO version of the LC AoE Optimus? Checked SirToys and I did not find an *exact* match.

If there is, how can I tell it apart from the official version?
I like the Cyberjet design, too. It would be nice to have some deluxe, OSKO versions of them, made nicely...
@Wei Jiang, pls? Lol.
Really though, larger scale Cyberjets would be absolutely rad.
Was that export shipping?
I liked the old Cyberjets and Machine Wars jets, though I always wished the Cyberjets had two hands, instead of a big awkward-looking launcher arm.
The OS Robotmasters stuff was pretty good (for the time). I still have my old OS R-Blade, Liger, Wrecker Hook, Air Hunter and Wingstun. They work reasonably well at that size.
What does CBB mean on SirToys. I'm guessing its a new company

I guess. Its the cost from warehouse to me in Australia. Nothing in taobao really has a shipping cost. The shipping costs come from the warehouse where it gets stored until your ready to consolidate all your orders. Well you get 20 days. I always buy in bulk cheaper shipping costs.
Bit of a recent mystery in KO-land, fellow cheapskates! Ben's KOlectibles was a bit late to the party and recently reviewed the Lost Planet Dia Battles KO:
However, he had a broken small gun, and an 4th extra pilot (the original only had three pilots). Ben didn't know that the version sold at Sirtoys has a blue and grey "powered suit" that comes with the set (in a small clear baggy. cellotaped inside the reverse of the clamshell), ShowZ's website doesn't seem to mention it being included, in either the written description or product shots.
Here is ShowZ's listing:
- MechFansToys MFT Lost Planet Diaclone Reboot DA-01 Dia-Battles
Here's a pic of what you get from that site:
It's also a bit more expensive than Sirtoys' version, which is here:

Here's Sirtoys' pic of what you get:
TfDirect only mention THREE pilots and have no mention of the powered suit:

Here's (ShowZ's?) Alien Express listing, showing the powered suit:

A Chinese reviewer also shows this Ko as coming with the powered suit. Here is the review:
Here's a screenshot:
Another youtube review states he got his from TF Direct, but in this review, you can see the powered suit cellotaped at the back of the clamshell at the start of the review, and then the reviewer shows the figure:
I would normally assume that Sirtoys either had a special deal with Mechfantoys and/or Paul was being his usual, philanthropic self and chucked a few extra goodies in the box himself, but Ben's review shows a FOURTH pilot AND he showed one of two guns included with the powered suit as being broken. This seems to suggest that either ShowZ and/or TF Direct have been getting shafted by their suppliers, didn't know that an extra powered suit came with the set (I don't think it's shown on the box) and/or the mech suit simply fell out of Ben's box OR something underhanded is going on their end perhaps? Why would Sirtoys get a mech suit, guns and extra pilot, ShowZ get only the extra pilot and mechsuit guns, while TF Direct got nothing else extra?
I have emailed ShowZ about this and will email TFDirect too. I'll post any updates here. If anyone else has bought these from ShowZ, TFDirect opr elsewhere and can confirm if they got the powered suit, please let me know.
EDIT: - Ben stated that the mech suit he got was in a separate box, which he believes is the version given away with the "Limited Edition" release? The mech suit I, and others got, was in a small clear baggy inside the clamshell, though. My
Both TFDirect and ShowZ got back to me. You can read their replies here:
- The Knock off transformers thread
showz's does come with the fourth pilot and little grey suit, thats where i got mine from and they were included. i got my set a week or two ago so the inclusion may be a more recent thing
I had four pilots in my set. Ordered it from a local seller.
What about the powered suit?
Yep, came with that too.
I think I read somewhere that mft has been including power suits and a driver as bonuses in a lot of their recent kos as an attempt to get interest in their diaclone kos
As documented in the KO Diaclone thread, that powered suit is a limited “preorder bonus.” That’s why it’s not advertised on most other sites. It won’t be included in future runs of the their Dia Battles.
Thanks. However, the sites haven't mentioned that in their product descriptions. Also, Ben got the extra guns and pilot but not the suit and another reviewer got the suit even though TFdirect doesn't mention it at the site.
Have you got a link to any official info regarding this, please? I'd like to share it with those sites, if possible.
Sorry I don’t have any links. Just remember reading about it in the KO Diaclone thread. I can’t remember if there were links posted there or just screen shots from Mechfans social media accounts.
