    This thing gives me a massive vibe of "if someone redid Robotech - Masters and redid the Hovertanks into a more realistic approach"

    It's darn gorgeous...If priced reasonably, I'd get this in an instant.

    if i remember right the blue one and the tank normally come with the not-pipes

    mft was good with packing diaclone ko stuff with their legends scale TF stuff.

    the pilots might be a freebie though so good on you for that

    I've seen just the suit for $6 but the items you got with it would be about 15ish dollars so a good deal I'd say.

    Any chance you can share the seller you got it from on Ali? I've been trying to find the small guys to go with my TFC rolling thunder, even if its not guaranteed, with Pipes.

    I wish I could find pilots cheap - I'm not massively lacking as such but a few spare is always a good idea - for the ones the sit on rather than in.

    I hope the new Lunar themed stuff shows up soon - I'd really like some.

    Hzj401 on ebay had sets of pilots some time ago. Not sure if they’re still available.

    Actually I was wondering if anyone has experienced broken joints on some of the KO pilots? I was messing with some of them recently and the elbows and knees on them just sheared off.

    I had a few...

    Two with knees that arrived broken, another with a bad elbow.

    The sellers from eBay re-reimbursed a fair amount per figure, but the other (the main MFT seller on AliExpress) made a big deal about it and ghosted me after I tried to do something "right" (requested a fair credit and I would have bought something else from him, which he agreed on but never did).

    But if they arrived fine, so far I didn't get any that broke later on.

    The broken ones I couldn't fix as no glue is about to hold the parts well enough being so small to maintain the articulation to they ended up glued in position.

    The short answer - yes, i've had a few wonky pilots ( which i was fine with because they were bought as custom fodder). Most are fine but 1 or 2 have had wonky knees and shoulder ball joint stems that have cracked. 95 to 99% of the time the KO Dianauts are fine for normal use.

    Let me see it clear. You've gotten Pipes, 4 pilots, diasuit and that grey tank-thing?

    IIRC that's the standard gear for a boxed one bar the pilots. MS-02 Engineer/Huffer just came with the matching mech suit in his deco, I think they threw in the KO Dirt Loader mini-tank as a bonus incentive with Pipes due to his being the more obscure character? It's usually just a colour-matching Mech suit with the MS series Minibots.
