    I should probably do this. I should have taken advantage of the half price offers when he came out last time. It's just that my v1 looks great sitting on my shelf, so I'm always hesitant to pull the trigger and spend the extra money.

    I wonder if this version of Ollie is an updated version from v2? So v3?

    From the TCP site it says:
    X-Transbots MM-IV OLLIE + Diecast
    From X-Transbots comes MM-IV Ollie with Diecast parts. An updated version of the previously released figure with lots of updates. ETA of August release.

    I read the list of updates features in the description and they all seem like things that my v2 has so I'm thinking it's just a reissue of v2.

    My seller messaged to say he thinks he's getting them this week, which is cool. Might be here in time for my birthday in a couple of weeks. It's actually going to be a present from my boy as he wanted to buy me a Transformer, so hope he's not disappointed!

    I'm surprised no other 3P MP company took a crack at this character.

    One of my few regrettable purchases as well. It’s a poorly conceived/executed toy despite looking great.

    I love this dude he looks amazing. Grant it I don't transform my collection much but he's solid in any pose and it's like he jumped out the screen

    It's definitely without question the V2... My version 2 had the thicker parts, better joints and added die cast.

    Gregg, how is the overall feel on this figure? XTB doesn't have a great record, at least to me, until recently with their crackup release.

    Get two...one for you and one for him! Happy Early Birthday by the way! :) 

    Yeah mine is a V2 so I don't know if there is REALLY that much difference. I've heard some people say yes and others say it's pretty close to the same. Regardless, I agree with you that he's really cool looking on my shelf. Maybe if I was a transform it all the time figure it would be different...he does feel a little fragile. Still, I think he looks great and am very happy with mine. (add a thin rubber band from work and he's good to go with that sling shot!) :D
