    So, this come out of nowhere, but apparently daban's latest KO is generation toys op ex. No further news regarding size, but i am guessing this is not oversized, so the only thing it has going against the actual GT ones is price, i suppose.

    Just saw a listing for it, says 24cm.

    Preorder is at about $40 US, and apparently is dropping very soon.

    Well If the quality is decent and not cheap feeling, I'll pick it up. I always wanted to grab a transforming IDW prime, but never wanted to spend that much on em. Anyone buy their devy ko?

    I have the Nemesis version, I hope they improve the tolerances on the feet and give us a Shattered Glass or Magnus deco.

    Seeing as they haven't made any other decos for their GB KO its not likely but I'd pick both up.

    I have the official, but if the tolerances are improved maybe I'll grab one of these, too.

    Yeah, timing is a bit shitty, I just got the hybrid colored version.
    But if this one is the first version, I actually would be glad as I like that version better

    Ah, perfect. That's the color I wanted.
    Also, Show-Z already has him in stock.

    I like what i am seing for Daban making Optimus.

    And I HATE having just seen at Show Z the price of Daban Yellow Gravity Builder for 115$... damn, should have waited for this, so much cheaper and nicer too...
