    100% a non transforming figure.

    if there is something to look for, it’s the foot. It will have blocky sections sticking out.

    It's not fake, it's a real figure just not the one this thread is about. If phelpzer himself had said it was a pic of it, that'd be a fake story, but yet again it's just you finding any pic of Prime on the internet and running to this thread.

    I love your passion dude, but you need to calm down.

    There will be real news and pics soon enough.

    It’s so obviously not this figure that those messages border on spam.

    I’m really hoping they fix the size of the head on the final release. It looks way too undersized and sunken into the body.

    I think I've gotten confused. Is there more than one Prime in this thread, or several KO Primes coming? I thought this one was an OS of Challenger, but the ShowZ store says it's a 1/1 KO with some improvements.

    Am I confused? Is ShowZ wrong? Did they change their minds and not OS after all?

    (Also in ShowZ's own photos he appears to come up closer to head/shoulder height on the TLK Megatron KO than the UT toy does).

    Showz's description is just off. And it is indeed just this one OS KO coming.

    Yeah I agree that the description is off. I did a quick height check with UT Challenger and BmB Skybreaker then compared them to the photos in the 1st page of this thread.


    Image on the right has UT Challenger's hips joints slid down to make him taller.

    Prime being bulkier and thicker than Megs is a no go for me.ı am happy to have ko Dragoon in my collection but these two (ko megs and ko challenger) don't look well together at all.

    Agreed, challenger's height is fine as it was, this is going to look better with the original UT dragoon

    So I've been re-reading through this thread again and I've been wondering if this thing is actually oversized. Because of course the Thread Title says so, but ShowZStore says it's a 1:1 copy, therefore the same height.
    So what gives?

    They also called the dragoon KO a direct copy when it was actually downscaled. So I wouldn’t think too much on Showz’s description.

    Yeah showz's descriptions have been wrong before. I would trust the overwhelming consensus of this thread that he's bigger. Although you could always wait for in-hand reviews to pop up to confirm.

    They also still have Sentinel's page saying he is a direct copy and oversized without mentioning the improvements.

    I'd chalk that up to the company. Weijiang were really bad about pretty much lying.

    If you look at the pic on the first page, then compare it to my pic bellow, you can see the height difference. My pic includes the original challenger and the KO Dragoon and shows that the KO challenger will be a couple of centimetres taller than the original.
