Yes. iGear. They scaled down the MP Optimus mold.

They're going to do KO MP Coneheads, with new wings and hats.

Other companies did full size MP Optimus KOs, too.
Here's a list of stuff I'm looking for!

You'd never be able to mistake any of them for the real deal, though. The low-quality knock-offs are off-coloured, and in the typical slapdash, gaudy KO packaging. iGears' versions are downsized, in completely different packaging, and can only be bought through their site.

People rarely speak ill of kotoys' toy quality. Due to the simple fact that mike from kotoys threatened to stab someone with a pen for posting a negative, but honest, review of KOLD OP.

Kotoys' ko toys = poor quality
The people behind kotoys = piss poor quality

my comments are based on my own personal experiences with the toys and people from kotoys.

For the price of the KO MP Prime that KOToys has, you can get you one of the Hasbro releases with the money and it's better quality, though the second Hasbro release has QC issues are far is paint is concerned on the legs. Just my
