The seller or the toy? The toy looks like a fairly common KO, so the the price could be legit.
Okay I see. So it's not mastermind. It's a KO of a third party?
Likely a KO - and a pretty floppy one at that based on the time I found it at a flea market. Thew Adams did a review of one (starts at 13:20):
There's two KOs of the original MMC design. One is often listed as Wei Jiang (the box says Leqiqu) and costs peanuts, but generally reviews pretty poorly due to the joints. I'd wager that's what this one is. It's definitely not 14" tall, unless you count from the ground to the tip of the sword in a He-Man pose.
The other is made by CloneDroid, and everything I've been able to find about it suggests it's actually better than the MMC. But you pay for that - not as much as you would for an MMC, but definitely not as little as this full-plastic KO. I've been right on the fence about buying the "Blackshot" variant of this one for a while now but just can't bring myself to actually buy. I've no real attachment to the original.
holy crap 27 bucks for this? I hope this is not legit, why is it so overprice? I bought mine from sirtoys years ago for about 15-20$ lol
i rmb this can be transformed into a nice throne... 7th transformation
This is a KO of a KO, the original being MMC's Hexatron mold. It was KOed by Clonedroid, with the black deco named as Blackshot and has red trims. The KO of that comes with green trims and is floppy and replaces most of the joints with simple ball-joints, if I remember correctly. It was dirt cheap (RM40 locally in Malaysia, which is about USD10). The only thing notable about this is that the cleavers are oversized to be much bigger than the MMC or Clonedroid versions.
No way a CloneDroid I $27 lol
The original black version was not a KO. MMC released a "Shadow Emissary" redeco that this is a KO of.
To the OP, this is a very cheap KO that is not worth the money. The good quality KO (Clone Droid)is around 70-80 USD if I remember correctly.
I have the mmc and the clone droid and mmc is a far superior product, but I guess that is because one is a ko the other a original mold.
4-5 years ago? Got this from SirToys . This KO has good paint and mine came with the guns and giant blades. IT is light as a feather but gets the job done. No where near the articulation of the original. Hands are molded just to hold the weapons.
Paint job is top notch though. Missed out on the all black one MMC version. This is a good substitute. Wouldn't pay much more than that though.
That isn't any 14" though! More like 9 or 10"standing robot.
Its legit, as in that particular KO does cost that. You get what you pay for. It feels cheap, but its not something that will crumble in your hands.
