    Interesting - I assume this is different from the straight KO that was doing the rounds last year. Any chance it might be made available to international buyers (AliExpress, ShowZ, etc?)

    yeah its not letting me order there either. it wont let me add it to cart. WHen going into that sellers store its not listed. when i click on more information it redirects me to Xianyu. ive never messed with Xianyu, but you probably have to order from there.

    Looks like a Walmart TFTM reissue leak!

    In all seriousness, looks pretty cool.

    Looks like it was based on the Encore release since it has the prototype peg on Slammer's gun that was readded.

    Also saw a Metrotitan version, full price in China is 100RMB, although I have no idea how to preorder these via taobao

    Can anyone translate or report on the quality? If it's good, I REALLY want Metrotitan.

    Chrome decals on the legs look really bad and probably throwing darts in here, but aren't the KO's with these goofy non G1 decals, along with the open window packaging, indicative of being crap quality anyway? I just remember those cardboard backing with plastic holding them in sets and those were brittle and easy to break. I think Raiden was one of those sets along with the mix Stunticons and Computron limbs sets.

    I would be tempted on any version of a Metro if the quality is better than being advised so far but appears they have the plastic wheels and would certainly be looking out for rubber ones instead.

    Not to be a party pooper to anyone who is interested in getting this, but yes. Without having one in hand I can't verify it of course, but these KO "adjacent" versions with unofficial stickers and mold colors are almost always of lesser quality than a straight up 1:1 KO. There are usually mold simplifications to cut costs too. Combiners like these are notoriously awful, although the packaging has a cheesy charm that only Chinese KO's can produce.

    Amazing. I want this. I fully expect it to be terrible quality, but for the price of a modern-day Voyager, I don't expect much. The most recent 1:1 KO (
    ) retailed for about $100 at ShowZ, and even that had quality issues.

    Then again, the Combiner Wars gestalts were as good as the official versions for the price of a Voyager, so...here's hoping!
