    Happen to chance upon this post on weibo by Wild Kidz (yes with a Z!). YET another Dinobot series. ;)  No word on scale.

    Looks like Planet X Vulcan. If it's bigger and material and price are good, I'd get this.

    I'm not an advocator of 3P KOs, as they can cripple small business very easily, but it'll be interesting to see if they upscale him to be more in scale with PX's Optimus and Starscream etc.

    I'm not sure there's a huge market for upsized vulvans . . .

    Probably not, but I'm up for an upsized Vulcan for sure.

    I don't need this, but there's definitely a size they could do PX Swoop in that'd make me interested . . .

    This is pointless if they don’t oversize/upscale it to be in scale with PX Optimus/Starscream/Megatron/Insecticons etc

    Some enhancements on the figure would be nice. Articulated fingers, up and down tail articulation, having the head tab to the back(I think it was a small issue with the original figure) just to name a few.

    Anyone else feel saddened by this?

    I've be enough kinda on the fence about getting that shiny planet X grimlock, but this news is making me want to keep it sort of as a middle finger to these KO companies. I don't owe planet X any loyalty, but I do have respect for the 'sweat of the brow,' if you know what I mean. I don't like the idea of someone profiting off someone else's engineering. Especially when we've seen recent interviews suggesting ko's are making some of these companies reconsider producing products

    I'm pretty disheartened. I got nothing personal against KOs, but I like Planet X ... a lot ... and really hope they do not get negatively affected by the creation of this KO.

    On the other side, if this KO turns out like anything near the Caelus KO that bombed pretty badly several years back, then I won't be too worried. But do hate to see small, hard working, companies get affected badly by KOs.

    PX's Swoop was KOed a year or so ago and it didn't hurt them. I think they'll cope fine with this too.
