Have you seen that BSL is also releasing a KO?
Already preordered, BSL = Unique Toys anyway so it’ll be close to the original release. There’s another one coming from Thunder Model
I didn’t know that.. nice!
Does anyone have a picture of him next to MPM Barricade?
Here you go...
So my girlfriend likes origami and puzzles and she got a metal craft guitar. No manufacturer on the box but it's perfect size so I took some pictures.
Just going through my folders looking at pictures and it just amazes me how close they got the vehicle mode and robot mode to being the size they are supposed to be. Pictures with mega construx minifigures blue circus Bumblebee and unique toys Peru kill
Strange how he scales very well on car mode with OS Bee and in robot mode with original MPM
What's the thunder model one
Wow, is that real? So interesting that they KO their own designs
I haven't got any of these, if BSL is that UT branch, I will think about picking one. Let wait for the La Hire KO review first.
Pretty sure the robot mode Bee is also the Blue Circus OSKO. Don't thinkofficial MPM BB is anywhere in those photos.
I was actually about to aski him why they were so close in size until I saw the Blue Circus name.
In my head cannon since bee is a bigger car he gains some mass over hotrod even though they (and cliffjumper) are the same chassis. My os bmb mpm07 is slightly shorter than la hire.
here we go again, UTR01 KOed by 2 3P BSL & VisualToys, now hotrod having 2 simultaneous KO w BSL & TM .. details are scarce but im interested to get both .. just like lockdown i ended up up w all 3
Oh sorry, thought the hot rod KO was Visual Toys
So, I am massively late to this party. For a variety of reasons I missed out on LaHire when he was initially released. And after being super impressed by all the pics in this thread, and video reviews that made his transformation look relatively solid and fun (as opposed to something like Hot Fire's fiddly and overcomplicated mess) I became determined to get my hands on one of these guys if they ever became available. So thanks to The Chosen Prime for hooking me up with one from the newest reissue stock.
You know, I think I'm even more impressed in hand. I'm glad I watched video reviews, because the instructions are scary in how vague they are. But once you see how things are meant to move on each piece, this guy is a marvel of engineering. Some fantastic ideas, well executed. I daresay he feels almost simple once you know where the parts go. Fantastic plastic quality, the paint is amazing. What a figure.
I'm not sure he beats out UT Dragoon, that thing is a work of sorcery. But he's a better toy than (the still excellent) Peru Kill and Challenger molds. This toy is just so good. More of this, from UT and DX9 and whoever else wants to find ways to raise the bar and we're really going to be in for a good time.
I got the KBB waveblaster KO x-ray kit. Upon receiving it La hire turned into Deadpool. All reason I bought the kit was because it came with nunchucks that look like they were the right size so I was going to paint them up to look like the ones from the video game Transformers Online. What do y'all think? I love that all of the weapons are damn near perfect size for him
Call him: Michaelambrobot. Michaelambro for short.
Just got this figure, and while I really am impressed with it, it's quite frankly impossible to tab in the bottom of the feet in robot mode (the metal tabs to get the bottom of the foot flat). They tab in fine for the car mode, so I'm not sure if the taillight is pushing the tab too far it to tab in or something. Did anyone else have this issue, because holy cow, this is ridiculous!
Are you squeezing the spring as you tab it in? If not try that.
I’ve been trying, but I may need to try using pliers (with rubber or other material to prevent damage to the plastic) or something to keep the spring squeezed while trying to tan the piece in.
If you're having that much problem with the spring in the foot then you can always remove it by taking the screw out. Then you can use wire cutters to cut one or two Loops off of the spring so it's not as strong. Put it back together in the same order you took it apart and it should be fine. Besides that you might have to file the hole the diecast tab goes into if it is too small. Off the top of my head those are the only fixes I can think of
