    I wonder if they are going to keep it a kit or pre-assemble it...that's a lot of parts.

    Well, they turned those Kotobukiya flight units and the tilt rotor pack into toys. I'd assume they're doing the same here. How solid was their tilt rotor?

    This would look like fun in the construction yellow - also the sub-unit is cute in it's own right :

    I like the stand too - hopefully they will do something with that too.

    As for colours, powder blue, red and white would also be nice to see.
    I can see if being an nice side accessory piece, if you stretch your imagination it can even still be seen as a Transformation toy too.

    Not good. I bought this a while back. All the white plastic is VERY soft. I am very delicate with my collection but both wrist joints broke within minuets of being out of the box. The head mechanism dose not work properly and always jams. The dianaught mini figs all have locked up hips and one of them had a leg sheered off right out of the box. Over the last few months, the knees basically disintegrated and the springs tore them apart. I would recommend avoiding the MFT version of this. It is not even a display piece because the plastic degrades SO fast. I can basically only use it for a few parts at this point. The grey and blue plastic is just fine.

    As far as I know, the MFT version of the hero colors (red and blue) are fine. It is just the Space Maneuver white one.

    If you can find it, get the Diamond Cyclone version. It is missing a few minor paint apps but the plastic and tolerance match the official Takara Diaclone version.

    It's so weird that people had issues with this one but mine was just fine. Marginally a little loose in the hips but still able to hold poses just fine, and none of the issues you described. Very hit or miss that one.

    Side note: I am still seeking a buyer for mine. ;)

    The Diamond Cyclone version of DA-06 can be had from ShowZ for all of $10 more and is pretty well considered the superior KO.

    The Diamond Cyclone is really good quality. I wish they would put out another release.

    Did anyone buy the off-brand, supermarket KO of Diabattles? Is it more durable than the MFT KO Cosmos Battles? Would be funny if it is. :p

    Mobile Suit Gundam Micro Wars

    Bandai makes them I believe. Ebay is the most convenient location to purchase them I'd imagine . They are listed there.

    The set they are KOing came as "put it together yourself" kit. So they are doing the same thing that Takara did.
