    Hope this is better quality than the last few KOs.

    Still don't understand "4th party." It's not a 4th party, it's still a 3rd party, because there's three parties involved. (us, TT, and whoever is making the KO)

    What's 4th Party? Is this a KO?

    This should really have been posted in the 3P forum but yeah... Interesting. So continues my let's see if the KO companies can do a better job and/or offer me a cheap option for a second copy for beast mode. Still this isn't actually all that much cheaper than the original....hummm.

    The term “3rd party” is misused by this fandom.
    • 1st party is TakaraTomy or Hasbro
    • 2nd party is the consumer
    • 3rd party is another company engaged in a business agreement with the 1st party
    What many people in this fandom call 3rd party is simply a company making their own unlicensed likenesses of the 1st party’s intellectual property.

    KOs are simply counterfeit product of anyone’s genuine product.

    ...and the term 4th party is inaccurately used to describe a KO that changes and/or improves on the figure it's knocking off. Like improving joints, adding die-cast, changing the deco, changing the scale etc etc...

    No it doesn't make any sense but it's become sort of universally accepted.

    Probably used because "knock off" and "IP Infringement" don't sound as nice.

    Anyway, on topic, I hope Takara has a repaint planned. I truly love the mold and would welcome a to-do or even the unreleased Halloween one.

    Do I want this? What have the other boxes looked like? Can we expect diecast and electronics, or a different deco?
    If it looks exactly like the official release, I don’t think I’d really want it...

    She's still pretty cheap to pick up if you know where to look. I picked one up for $50 the other day off yahoo jp with MISB going for $60-70, Honestly, I don't think she sold that well even though she was the only new MP last year with no real QC drawbacks.

    Nope.

    Well, different possibly on the legs since KO companies can't seem to match TT's "printed texture" paint apps. See Megatron for how badly their attempts can be.

    I suppose they will make the abdomen of spider more hidden, just that, because apart from that the MP has no flaws... or did it?

    I went to order BA today from Amazon Japan & it says they can’t ship to me. I’m in Oregon & it’s never been a problem before. Any ideas what’s up? I thought they were still shipping just fine.

    I think that must’ve been it. I found a different one, presumably from Amazon itself (?) and it worked just fine that time.

    So June 1st I can finally add her to my collection!

    Be very careful when removing the clear blue connector piece from the web. Both clips on mine broke.

    I live in Japan so I can most likely get a replacement from TT but it would suck if this happened to an overseas fan.
