    I ordered one too also, so one of us will deliver the skinny in a timely fashion.

    SirToys has photos showing it is indeed oversized.

    cool thanks. I'll probably order him in a few days. Is Sirtoys a reputable site? I've never ordered from them before

    Oh man. Seeing the listing on Sirtoys has me tempted. That looks really good, and only for $10.
    Looks like it's the same people who made the other OS RID figures. I have Grimlock, and it's very high quality. If Megatronus is anywhere close to that, then I know I'd be in for a good figure. But do I really need a Megatronus?

    I need an OS RID Soundwave, that's for sure.

    Those who ordered one, I’m interested in the quality. Any info and comparison shots with other RID figures would be great.

    They are very reputable. I've ordered a number of things from them and have never had a bad experience. The only word of caution is that shipping can seem on the slow side.

    He looks awesome. I couldn't resist ordering one from ST to go with my TFP Cons. 18cm should put him a cm taller than Megatron.

    I wish he uses a mat or backdrop with measurement grids to avoid doubts on sizes and so on, especially since there so many sizes and scales being used by various companies. While I appreciate the size comparisons, there are times when I find myself unable to relate to the figures that he had put up because I'm unfamiliar to them. I just started collecting very recently, so I have no idea sometimes. Titans Return Blurr? Generations Warpath? Never seen them before. Hasbro/Takara made it worse since the sizes from one older line would be different than the newer ones.

    Yeah, it's suffering from being upsized. I plan to design a new one (hopefully with articulated face mask), as well as arm filler panels and probably that staff thing he was after (if I remember right).

    I always thought this guy was awesome and was bummed I couldn't get a figure of him in the right size til this.

    I placed my order on the 15th. Tracking went active on 19th, and it still haven't left China yet.

    There is a whole bunch of other (different mould) Overscale RID - nothing spectacular - but they do in come cases have more joints than the Wei Jiang ones (like having the hips swivels) and they also do an over-scale RID Steeljaw as well (that Wei Jiang doesn't)

    But they seem rather hard to locate so far.

    I wouldn't buy anything other than the WJ versions, nothing else will be above garbage tier.

    I'm not talking about Simplified ones - these ones came out in Brazil as well as they are perfectly fine quality. (actually better as they have the extra joints) - They are just really hard to source.
