    Yep, looks really good. Faces looking good, they added wrist swivel, i really wish he had outer arm joint so he could lift his arms like the dx9 dinos do. Am i right in thinking they widened the space for his head to fold away, the tight space for the head really bugged me? Shortened the barrel on his back.

    Much improved!

    Love it! The original was pretty great overall, but there were a few little things that bugged me and this KO addresses all of them. Bravo!

    I'm in for sure. I wonder when they'll release him?

    I have the original but I like the little improvements that they made. It looks like they fixed the proportions too? If that's the case I'm definitely interested in this. I can leave the original in gun mode.

    Like how they used MP36 head and added MP mightrons cannon. Looks much better overall.

    Looks like I'll be getting this to add to my Megs collection.

    With this amount of accessories in combination with the complexity of the transformer in guessing it will be about double Galvatron and Ultra Magnus .

    Yep, strange how they rounded the end of the stock but didn't make whole stock cylindrical like MP36 either since you can tell that's what they were going for !!

    I don't care that I spent on dx9s. That's what eBay is for and there are always people who don't want a KO.

    Must correct myself as i sat down to compare.
    Doh he already had wrist swivel, just he has new hands. They didn't widen the head space but it seems the new head is not as tall as the original so better for folding away perhaps.

    I am concerned he is not going to be bigger than the original so my reason for buying him falls down quite a bit. I am going to need to see proof he is actually 12cm. :/

    IF the toy itself is not enlarged looking at it i don't see how he is 12 cm. The different feet don't do that and neither does the head. Could be a case of people not knowing how to measure.

    This looks great. I love DX9 figures but the total lack of internal scale from one to the next has always bugged me.

    I like a lot about this. They've improved the head and added swappable faces, and it looks like they've slightly tweaked his proportions. He also has some great accessories. Their changes to his fusion cannon are pretty sweet, but I don't like the shorter barrel on it.

    If they've changed up his shoulders in order to allow more range of movement, then I just may have to pick up one of these deluxes and make a new cannon on Shapeways.
