    I believe (if I understand which pegs you are referring to), they are used in jet mode to hold the peg ends of his chain whips.

    Sucks Rendsora ended up being too short.

    I had him posed with legs slightly apart in that pic. Here's another. Note the TF Dream Factory Tank Megatron had his leg joints stretched slightly to give more height.

    So, Rendsora ended up surprisingly being MP scale.

    I keep finding tabs on this thing! They're everywhere! I find a new one almost every time I transform him. How many more can there be?!

    Man, the paint on my official MPM-08 keeps coming off at the slightest touch it feels like ... is this KO definitively better? (I usually avoid KOs but in this case, along with MPM Ironhide, I feel like HasTak has sadly forced me hand ...)

    I haven't had any issues with paint on my figure and I've transformed him multiple times

    You’re talking abt the official right? The brighter silver on mine has blemishes accumulating and I’ve barely transformed it ...

    Does anyone know if the KO has any issues with paint applications?

    Sorry, I should have clarified :)  I only own the Honey badger KO. My Honey Badger Megatron doesn't have any issues with paint despite multiple transformations. The paint that is on him is not going anywhere and (imo) has a high quality feel to it.

    No worries man! This (see picture) is the first (to my knowledge) KO of the official MPM-08 Megatron. This is the only one I own and that I am referring to.

    His paint is great and I don't have any issues with chipping, flaking or even scratching. Very solid figure with great paint :)

    Do you know roughly what would be a decent price for him? Doesn’t have to be the cheapest number - I just have absolutely no frame of reference for what KOs in general are supposed to go for vis a vis the official options ...

    He is roughly 70-80 (the later being more common) in most places.

    KO's can range quite a bit. The cheapest KO I ever purchased was BMB's Barricade for $34. I highly doubt you'll find this guy for that pricing, but considering that the official MPM Megatron was only recently released and is currently listed between $145 and $160, that's a pretty good deal.
