    looks more like KOs of the Shinkansen Transformation Robo Shinkarion Trinity but that doesnt combines and has a bit better articulation

    Ooh, loving that trainformer! I really loved the look of the Shinkalion figures but the lack of articulation, even on the DX ones is so disappointing. This one even seems to have a bit of knee bend. I’d definitely buy it if I can find it listed on Aliexpress or ebay.

    Yeah there seems to be a knee bend from the 3d render but I can't find pics of anyone using it. It might be due to the lack of front/back hip movement. So the only real improvement it seems to have is a wider A-stance.

    I did find a comparison with the older Shinkalion E5 toy.

    Yeah, and impossible to find in stock anywhere.....at least for Grimlock and Swoop.
    I hope Pocket Toys can come to the rescue.
    I picked up a full set of all 6 Pocket Toys 1:1 KOs of DX9 WIP seekers (coneheads and non coneheads) including bonus flight stands for all off Taobao for $49 USD shipped. The quality is excellent.

    I want that train with the tracks to set up around Metroplex. Right now, I'm using some display track and the old TF HO train:
    [​IMG]

    But I would prefer to use that train with its track and put it around my G1 Metroplex and WST TFs for a G1 display and use this more modern one for my Legends display.

    Well, had an interesting day thus far, stopped by a couple of Tuesday Morning stores and picked up some familiar faces, with some unfamiliar names. Then when I got home there was a relatively small box of items I purchased from a tfw member and then a significantly larger box :D  (only bigger ones I’ve previously gotten were containing furniture or ‘unheld’ bundles from sirtoys).

    Here’s a no glitz or glamour pic:
    FE610A43-2D11-44C3-9EEA-6BBF3701B478.jpeg
    Going from right to left (because japan), and bottom up (because I want to) we have:
    POWERGOLDAN
    STEELDIVINE (love that name, maybe it’s the homonym & double entendres that can be made)
    HAWK OVERLORD
    TORNADONUMBER
    Lewin’s Atlas, aka MPPPP...10
    RECONNOITRE
    FREIHTERPAN
    ADHOC FIGHTER
    DAIRUGGERXV
    FIREFIGHTER
    (and then some duplicates)

    These KOs are comparable in size to the WSTs. For those that might be curious about scale, I placed a ruler on the far right for a rough idea of height.

    Oh, decided to put a few of the KO quick changers I also picked up
    (With the ‘ruler’ longitudinal for length).

    They each look like they can each comfortably take a seat in that Notptimus Prime.;)

    I think everyone should go to the gallery now and click next 1468 times to get caught up and refresh their memories on every KO that I have ever found. :p

    Don't know that I'd trust them. I ordered a 35cm/14" chrome-plated Prime from that shop and got a 28cm /11" poorly-painted-chromeless Prime instead.

    I mean, admittedly, I wasn't expecting a great quality product from a cheap knock-off, but if the size was at least accurate, I could fix the paint and joints myself.

    I assumed they were KOs of victory Leo and of the cyberjets, as I’m not too familiar with what constitutes G2. I did find this however:

    Here’s a pic of the back of the clamshell packaging/card.

    How big are they? The official ones were legends size. Are they OS'd a bit?

    Has anyone purchased KO G1 Blitzwing, Astrotrain, or other g1 bots recently? I’m looking to get the highest quality KOs of at least those 2, but I’m not sure where to buy or what’s a fair price. I’d like to have them in nice quality boxes as well if possible. Does anyone have a seller they recommend? I did a search but a lot of it I found was older. Thanks.

    So, you're not exactly looking for an off the wall colored version, but rather a high end knock off reissue to pass as the real deal?

    I am SO STOKED those are back in circulation, I remember I had that Baldigus in like eighth grade a little before RiD started hitting America and I would make him fight my Fire Convoy and Wildride despite the size difference. There's a Tuesday Morning pretty close to my office, I might dip in there and see what I can get.

    I’m looking for high quality kos, original colors, preferably with nice boxes for myself. I have a lot of originals, I’m looking for something I can have and not worry about my nephews or myself carrying around that isn’t a floppy mess or damaging one of my good condition original collection. It sounded like you think I’m going to resale them as original? These would be used display pieces for myself and some as toys for my nephews.

    Edited for clarification
