    This was my first reaction as the gold paint apps are all in the same place as the Honey Badger, but on the listing there's a drop down option for colour A (like Honey Badger) or colour B (light silver). Interesting. And just when I received mine as well. Now I'm conflicted :p

    I suppose the first HB came out of nowhere, mine shipped within a week of seeing the original pictures. It's not that out of the question that the company could make a color variation out of nowhere.

    True true. This one is just even more out of the blue to me cuz it's just an eBay item. This thread's KO at least showed up on a known seller's site.

    As good as this new guy looks, I think I still like the darker color scheme a little bit more. It's more ominous even if not as accurate. Not much of a choice at this point as he is currently in transit to me haha.

    The lighter silver looks very good! But the darker tone is more accurate to the movie I think.

    Interestingly, they call the eBay listing Oversized, but have the dimensions blister the same as the original.

    So who wants to take a gamble on this new KO? :p  I'm not sure I want two versions of Megatron. Deciding which is more screen accurate is hard as different scenes and lighting match up to either colour scheme

    It is, I’m pretty sure it was stated earlier in the thread, but I’m pretty sure PingTou translates to Honey Badger

    I'm not super proficient at dynamic poses but here's a couple of pictures with LT-02 Optimus:

    Is the MPM-8 ko the same size or slightly bigger than BA optimus? I've seen multiple pictures and it seems like their size changes each one.

    You can adjust Megatron's ankles to extend to make him taller, you can do the same with any MPM Optimus's hips

    just got mine in and i have to say pretty disappointed, he looks great but he`s a floppy mess, legs are loose as hell and barely support his weight standing up
