    One thing for sure, once I finished OS KO Guardian I won't fall in any other trap from this company in the future --- I will wait until all the members released before buy another combiner from YES model.

    You say that as if every single third party with a combiner doesn't do this. :p

    Hopefully they'll rerelease the limbs, or perhaps a giftset, after Hotspot comes out.

    excellent. I'll be grabbing two copies of OS Vulcan.

    the individual bot mode is too awesone and will be displayed on he's own!

    I'm reminded of the people who offloaded their DX9 Stunticons because they were convinced it was no longer happening.

    Thank the sweet, creamy (over)lord there's been some progress on this.

    I can't help but notice the watermark on the pics says 2017 though. Can anybody translate what the rest says?

    I've always wondered how they train the factory workers to assemble complex stuff like this. I suppose they have several stations and each worker only learns to assemble a couple bits and passes it down the line.

    original MT combiners are usually 12", the OS version shld be closer to 15".

    it'll match GT gravity builder and TFM havoc.

    most likely Zeta or FT since they're going the 18" combiner route.

    Like I said before I think the make toys one would be nice oversized they'd benefit from the extra mass - I do hope they realise they'd need to reinforce the ankles though, I also wouldn't hate the idea of M3 being oversized - but he's starting to look a bit creaky in some ways now - that said I do actually enjoy the individual robots so much that I bought two sets of limbs just to play with the limbs as single robots so I'd buy them bigger too. (in better quality than the existing giant KO was).

    I suppose they could in theory downscale some Zeta combiners too.

    No those guys are going the 20-21" combiner route. The company making combiners consistently at 18" is funny enough Jinbao.

    Yeah the big fear here is that we end up with another Jinbao Devastator. It's not bad but the engineering wasn't designed with the oversized weight in mind.
    If Defensor turns out to be solid then I'd hope the next OSKO would be Green Giant.

    There were rumours (sorry, I don't have a source) that the next OS KO combiner from Yes Model would be MT's Computron.

    I'd very possibly trade my Jinbao Devy in for a Yes Model upscaled Green Giant, though Devestator is over-represented if anything by official, 3P and KO sets so I suppose Computron would be a logical next step.

    I wouldn't say no to Quantron that's for sure.
    A larger Vic Viper Strafe? Yes please.
    Sure the markets saturated but I still feel Giant is one of the best versions out there despite his size.

    I don't mind Giant as individual robots and he looks OK when combined but he has one of the single most unpleasant (scrared you are going to break it style) Transformations I have ever experienced. If they did make it bigger (which may not be wise considering how flooded the market is for Constructicons) then I'd hope they'd not make it a 1-1 copy and at least consider simplifying out some of those terrible T-tabs. (or at least make them looser).

    But here is another suggestion what about an oversize Saurus Ryu (in Monstructor colours perhaps) - I can see that having some merit?
    or what about Road Ceasar ?

    As for Jinbao they might consider making TFC's leo kaiser bigger. especially if they can fix some of the design quirks & reinforce some of the weak spots. Jinbao also has some Dinobot combiners they could consider too perhaps. Though I think the go to choice for them to do next seems to be either Warbotron Computron or Unique Toys Ordin but plenty of people have also expressed and interest in an overscale set of Seacons or GT Stunticons too.

    I think the idea of taking one of the bigger Combiners and shrinking it is an interesting one though - and that might be something worth exploring too. The DX-9 Stunticons might be interesting to see if it's feasilbe to shrink them, but in a way as the DX9 & the KFC ones are different sizes and yet so similar they kinda have already filled than niche between the two of them you just buy either or - depending on your prefered size.

    I think stylistically Fansproject and Maketoys items may suit them the best... though here is a thought could you shrink Chromedome and Hardhead perhaps and still have them work well at a smaller size ?

    I don't know if Saurus Ryu would look good OSed. His smaller component size works with his design. Blowing up his individual figures will showcase how simple and old their designs are. He might look nice in combined mode, but his components would likely look like ass if you tack on a few inches in my opinion.

    I might be down, depending on combiner size and pricing. I'm not really interested in a toon accurate defensor but a big one with this level of style? Maybe..
