    Well the Oversize (partially Metal RID Optimus) I purchased was well under $20.00 (shipped loose) That is a Wei Jiang toy and the same size.

    So I'd say they are likely going to be priced similarly to RID Overscales (metal versions) and The Medium Size Age of Extinction Hound overscale.

    So The Limbs would be less than $20.00 and the Torso would be under $50.00 - with those prices decreasing after a few weeks usually.

    The Blue Rook being unique seems like the one to buy I'd speculate, if you wanted to get one just to see what they are like.

    About the only OS CW figures I'd want are Sky Lynx and 'Deathsaurus'. For the rest, I'd happy with some good quality recoloured regular-sized limbs.

    Speaking of oversizing, these KOs are going to need better OS feet.

    I am trying to translate some of the Chinese names for the toys.

    Alpha Bravo is "Alpha Earth - Helicopter"
    Blades is "Steel Blade - Helicopter"
    Hot Spot is "Hot Spot - Ladder Car"
    Rook is "Camel Light - Armored Vehicle"
    Rook recolor is "Great General - Armored Vehicle"

    I can't figure out the full name of the combiner. It's Hypervariable... something.

    So, these are MP scaled then, but not MP styled.

    I would be eager to know if they will come with the upgraded larger hands and feet, otherwise some other company will upscale them if Weijiang continues with this line.

    Either way, good thing I haven't got into combiner wars yet.

    I'd call them Voyager sized limbs and a Leader sized torso. No need to speak the "M" word. It just confuses and annoys people.

    I was wondering, if CW Deluxe>WJ Voyager. CW Voyager>WJ Leader, then does a CW Leader get upscaled to 30cm, a similar size to MPP-10?

    MP scale only has two sizes so far. 16cm and 22cm(CHUG Voyager and Leader size). Bumblebee is irregular. They also adjust it to match the cartoon scaling chart.

    I can see some merit to a leader Class Hotspot even if they didn't also combine.

    If these sell OK it would make some sense to work towards doing Bruticus and Superion too.
    as Superion and Bruticus Share a Jet design and they can always use the Swindle Mold for Hound later on if they get that far.
    Naturally they already have the Helicopter mould. and Onslaught is most of Hotspot as it is.

    If the decide to fill some gaps they can go in some creative directions - I think it would be worth doing an CW overscale Optimus as well due to the brand recognition and that you can get repaints out of him too.

    -----

    But then the 'expected' repaints don't always show up the RID Metal Parts over-scale toys being a good example of that. The decent Moulds versions seem like they'd be really good in Blue,Black and even white/blue deco, and the Grimlock would look terrific in Purple/blue accents or in G1 deco and Drift also in Blue and Bee in Black - yet that has yet to happen. There are repaints but simplified ones.

    Wei Jiang seems to have some sort of ADD when it comes to the lines the KO. They did the AOE Dinobots but quit offering them in the Black Knight decos halfway through the line. They did a bunch of the RID line but quit those and jumped to CW. I figure they'll start churning out Titans Return bots by fall of 2017 at this rate.

    Do we already know how tall the combined mode is? Sorry, did a quick skim through the thread and didn't see anything mentioned.

    Voyager Alpha Bravo and both Rooks are really the only things that interest me. If I pick them up I'd gut the combining feature.

    I'd like it better if they had a motorcycle and a ambulance limbs.

    I hope these do well so there might be a chance they oversize the TR Deluxes too.
