    I suppose the best we can hope for is a bit of metal added - but considering how titchy the original is - oversizing this would just be the logical thing to do up to at least Voyager size - even the slight upsizing some Optimus toys get would be better than nothing.

    Sometimes a 1-1 copy has merit Bumblebee Movie Prime for example is a nicer shade of red and adds metal to make him feel a bit more substantial so I don't mind that he's not overscale - but i'm somewhat struggling to see the point here - as it shouldn't take anyone very long to find an online store where the original is on sale below retail price. If they have added metal in a place that helps I still might buy it as their stuff is dirt cheap and good quality - but really a bigger one would really interest me - a 1-1 is something i'd be buying just to buy it and for the novelty of it having some metal in it.

    Apologies for OT, is it confirmed? They didn't release their Optimus yet and they already tease us with next (?) release?
    Also, why they are changing box styles... I got really fond of that "Interstellar" deco :D .

    I'd only be interested in this if it were oversized. I find no point for me personally in a 1:1 scale KO of this line. If it's a price thing, I could find an opened original for cheap.

    My normal problem with oversized, is they're usually TOO oversized. But if this guy was at that regular range of 17-18cm from original deluxe, he'd be perfect.

    Looks like he is an OS!

    I actually really like this mold. The bot is a little goofy, but the transformation is fun and that chopper mode is second only to SS Blackout in the badass department, IMO.

    Just a random thought about s c a l e. If Dropkick is 22cm tall wings to toe, meaning he might be 20-21cm tall head to toe, it will mean he is in scale with Human Alliance figures! Especially Bumblebee, Jazz, Barricade, and Sideswipe.

    I’m thinking he might work as a stand in next to the MPM bee

    Man, they just throw darts to decide what gets OSed I guess.

    They did this since day 1. When they first appeared with KO TLK figures, the TLK voyager op mold was OSed, while TLK megatron was not. Which i still finds odd.

    Are they? Seems pretty deliberate to me. Both bb, op, and now dropkick are getting OS’d. And they are doing all the devestator bots instead of just a few.

    Well, this just became a figure I want since it's OS'd. Well done, BMB!

    They've OSed and upgraded SS Megatron, MP Ironhide, MP MPM Optimus, SS Brawl, SS Starscream. When this line started I was hoping for a shelf of huge BayBots but now these 1:1 KOs feel pretty pointless.

    The 1:1 devy is pretty odd, but as I showed dropkick isn’t 1:1 ko. Mold wise sure, but he is OS. Also it’s not from their LS line, which I assume is what you meant with “this line”?

    It just strikes me as weird that some stuff is in the LS line and some isn't. There's also some SS Bumblebees that are OS'd as well in multiple sizes.

    I just want everything embiggened.

    They try and fit multiple markets I guess, kids and collectors. It is confusing to follow at times yeah...

    I assume these Constructicons are aimed at the Chinese market and the LS stuff at the collectors end.

    Ugh.

    Well- Black Mamba did do 2 different size ko of ss bee
    As well as 2 different sizes of ss38, with the larger being heavily improved

    I wouldn't be surprised if they did 2 different sizes for this as well
