    @songrobin you have to start selling little kits man. Your skills are too baller to keep to yourself! Can't wait to see what you to do FT Omega!

    I finally had a chance to open up Klauttu and while I do like him, next to bumblebee or some of the other BadCube minibots, he looks just so thick and chunky. I recall from the toon that he always was a fat little dude but I kind of feel like it's putting a Gi Joe next to a he man action figure.

    Am I alone in this? Or is my selective memory messing with me..?

    Ive the clear TW and regular TW and I dunno... I kind of like the clear Tw version the best. For now. Klauttu gets a spot in the display, but just something doesn't totally satisfy me.. But may not be the robots fault..

    Thank you! FT Omega sounds like a fun ride; got a fair number of fun ideas for him. Hopefully we'll see him soon.

    I couldn't help myself. I guess we'd better MOOOve along before things get too sour. :p 

    Now that all the 3P's have released their MP versions of Cosmos, I still like Klaatu the best. I think MMC/Ocular Max did a better job with their design having no back/butt kibble compared to Klaatu's ginormous butt flap, but overall, I find Klaau's aesthetically more appeasing in both modes, and the transformation pretty cool. I also like the quality and the color palette. MMC's version is very tempting. If anything I may get the MMC, but I am 100% getting Klaatu.

    Holy cow you guys, this is just getting cheesy.

    I made a happy discovery with Klaatu tonight. As someone who ritually refuses to use instructions I occasionally miss little things and the find them later - such as Klaatu's side flaps that fold out to allow the arms to slide up and then fold back to help hold them in place.

    Until tonight I had been folding them against the back. Tonight as I was transforming him I got to the arm sliders and had my recurring thought of "I wish these arms locked in place better", then realized the obvious error I had been making and finally put the flaps in their correct spot. And now I love Klaatu even more.

    WHAT WOULD COSMOS DO WITH COWS? I mean, really. Burgers? Milk? Cheese?

    Then it hit me - the scene from Monty Python's The Holy Grail. The King Arthur's Court episode. Cosmos just wants some castle defense.

    Well, I figured what they hay, and just ordered me a Klaatu! :D 

    Cosmos gets gassy? Cuts the cheese? He does look a bit bloated and...green. ;) 

    Ah, Monty Python...

    I think my Klaatu might be here next week. Bleh, I can't wait any longer.

    Also, seriously, cow puns? I like me some puns, but you guys are killing me.

    I guess complaining is pointless though because it's just going to continue, so what I said is a moot point.

    Yeah, that was a stretch...

    Better to have cow puns than cow pies. ;) 

    You said "MOOt" point? :lolol

    Indeed! He's in rare form there.

    It's good to see informative threads like this one where we know what's at steak before we buy a product like this. Klaatu is by no means a cheap purchase, but seems to be worth every penny. I even like the box art!

    Well, I have a steak in this thread, having been one of the contributors of the more meaty comments for you all to ruminate on.

    Chew on that for a while.

    I don’t like the oxtailular max version that mmc is putting out. It seems like it was put out too brisketly and not well-done out.
