    Blah. Hoping for the neighborhood of the MP Inferno KO pricing.

    Count me in. Hound was gonna be my first MP but I had to say no because of the issue where he kinda cracks and breaks just by touching him. Looking forward to this.

    Probably too much to hope that one of these KO companies uses their initiative to produce a toy accurate paint job as I assume they're just copying the official without having the TF knowledge to do anything else.

    Mind you, in this case if they simply manage to produce an identical copy that manages not to crack while supporting it's own weight on a shelf they'll be onto a winner!

    Trust me, KO companies have TF knowledge. There’s a reason they made so many MP10 repaints.

    They're still missing a trick with a colour-corrected Shockwave and toy or + repaints of the more recent MPs then.

    I've been quite lucky with the authentic version and have only one tiny crack (the one that everyone gets by the screw that mounts his rocket launcher behind his head) but I might pick up a KO just to have one to mess with more casually...my official is handled with the kiddiest of kid-gloves :D

    I don't know why, even not having issues with the official (though I will never be transforming him back either), I'm extra excited about this news. If it lives up to the hype, count me in.

    I probably won't get this for the same reason that I didn't get the original - the Hound slot in my collection is already filled by Willis - but this is good news. Hopefully it fixes all the problems that people had with the original.

    If the material quality is better than the official count me in.

    Sweet, I was really hoping a KO would come along to pick up Takara's slack once again.

    I have the TT version (crack free so far), but I'm going to keep a close eye on this one. If it's better, I'm in just like with MP-44. Thanks for posting!

    Ya know, I was originally gonna get the TT Hound but it was too expensive, and killing itself made me not. But I may be in for this.

    My Hound crumbled so count me in as interested. Looks like this has the darker toy green so far. I hope he still has the larger Spike.
