    Are there any news on if we are going to get ko versions of CW Menasor and Computron from the people that made Bruticus and Defensor?

    Blaster is great for the big combiners. I displayed my OS Superion with him for a while.

    Got this guy through from Sir toys this week. He's surprising complex and has decent articulation. Wish he was bigger but he scales well with Legends figures.

    Seconded! I have that one too! the plastic is a bit cheap, but he holds together fine, and has more articulation than I expected. He'd be better a bit larger, of course, but he's still cool.

    When I got it, I was disappointed by the size... the design and transformation are fine, but I had imagined it the size of g1 optimus, and dreamed it to be the earth form of skylynx.

    My girlfriend picked up the MP-33 KO for me for Christmas, and decided to give it to me early. I found that his rifle fits Marvel Legends Iron Man "repulsor blasts" nicely. Gives him an effect similar to MP-36

    Yeah, I think I knew what to expect in terms of size, so it didn't disappoint me in that way (Dia Robo stuff tends to be small anyway, but even upscaled, I was able to guess from the gallery linked at Sirtoys). But yeah... he would have been better at a larger size to convey the whole "dino" scale.

    Plus, you gotta love a robot dinosaur turning into a truck for transporting fossil fuels. :wink:

    Well I had a couple dollars left from my birthday in my PayPal back at the end September. I hit the bay and found some random KO Minibots for a $1 or so each.

    Well I love me some Minibots so I ordered 4. Well after a month or so they arrived. First up is a yellow Huffer/Pipes.
    KO Huffer~01.jpg
    Next up is well...
    They were random....
    And they randomly gave me 4 yellow Huffer/Pipes.
    So here is Huffer/Pipes and his brothers.

    Well looks like I'll have some custom practice coming up.

    While you folks continue to play the random game (yellow huffer when they advertised purple? I'd get refunds...), you may just want to want list these at Sirtoys and see if he ever comes across these on his travels, to procure them for you.

    G1 Minibots Chrome - TF - SirToys.com

    It's what I do, and how I got them.

    Seriously, I stopped the "gamble" when I found @SirToys . Just trying to help you get what you're after. :thumb

    They had the "Colors May Vary" proviso so I'm not to worried about it. I would have liked to have gotten different, but eh.
    I would use him, unfortunately I usually can't afford what I want and shipping. I'm trying to get on SSD due to health issues and currently rely on my ko-fi account for what lil spending cash I have.
    I do plan using him once I get a steady cash flow.

    As you can tell by the pic, I don't just order 1 item and ship from sirtoys.

    one 10 dollar item may fetch a 14 dollar shipping fee... but ten 10 dollar items may only fetch 30 dollars shipping... it's all about that "on-hold" feature (POL)

    I like that there is some KO Micromaster Combiners on Sir Toys - They looked appealing.
    I have to resist going nuts on Micromasters as I could easily spend Hundreds on them.

    I really wish I had a better idea of who to pester about what I'd call Crucial accessories.
    Not only would ramp adaptor that allow Micromaster Base Ramps to work with Titans Returns Bases be super useful (and they exist - they are just hard to find) but also brand new Ramps for Titans Return toys as well as other clip on pieces that would finish off the Bases.

    I do hope at least that some of the small things related to some of the Titans will show up eventually.

    We still need a Fort Max double gun for example. Also if Takara can't be bothered to make Prime Masters for their Fort Max and Grand Max then someone else should do it.

    I would really like the weapons for those Titan masters too. Some sort of adaptor for Trigger Happy would be nice too in case they ever make him a gun in the new line - I hope they do Nightstick too - it would be an ideal retrospective accessory for Megatronus.

    Not sure if anyone else has noticed, but for some reason the CBB version of Alpha Bravo has a mushroom peg for his neck, unlike his mold mates (who retain the ball joint of the original).

    Is this a running change? The rest of the limbs do feel a little off too.
