    Doesn't sound that much smaller.
    How big was the SS version?

    I think this is just a straight up KO

    A lot of Bay figures I know need a undersized KO, this is definitely not one of them.

    I think this looks like a vague improvement over the original. The blue on his chest looks great and I’m glad they made his smokestacks the right length :D 

    SSOP was a hell-no for me, but had he looked like this from the start he would be a maybe-ish for me.

    My bad. I should have verified SS OP’s details before posting. (Yep, I don’t have a single SS.)

    Can a mod kindly delete this thread?

    I dont think that's what it's going to look like. The blades are gray, and the diecast is unpainted.

    Yeah however I would love to have a deluxe-sized OP to carry around. If this was actually what I thought it was then I'd be getting it. Maybe if it was 5" or so that'd be cool.
    Same thing happened on instagram. No one seems to know what this is.
    I think I get it. It's an UNDERsized KO of an OVERsized KO? That's really confusing. Still the OSKO we have is stupidly big and pointless to me so this actually looks like it will go better with the other SS figures. I might bite if it's cheap enough. I can keep my original SSOP to go with the other SS decepticons and this one can go on my 07 autobot display shelf :D

    Fail, WJ.

    WJ said they are making an upgrade for it. Never got back to me if it was for this, or the bigger one. It will have new hands.

    They're waiting for the remold. Wich is more accurate and solves some of the original mold's issues.

    Chye Kheng said they will make “articulated fingers hand” in an upgrade kit. He never replied for which sized version.

    This was in reply to show.z posting pictures from here, of the SS OS with UFO hands, in this products sales post.

    They have definitely done something new with the wrists on this.

    This pic is the SS new mold?

    I watched the video, WJ simplified some places in its version, but overall no major changes, and improvements over official version are:
    1) in Truck mode, the smokestack is longer, which is nice
    2) have metal in the feet and legs, which should make robot mode more stable
    3) it comes with 2 faces

    consider this is just 1/3 of the official version's price (retail in China), I think it's a very good one.
