    Maybe they got a limited stock? We're talking about the Aoyi version, right?

    I'd argue that one wasn't well priced but even then, he was bigger and had the entire figure covered in silver paint. I also begin to see a problem when their OS MPM figures cost the same as on OS of a voyager figure.

    Honestly, I prefer not to know the opinion of a person who reviews in this way.

    So I take it that part where he took apart the shoulder and loosened the screw is where people are seeing breakage and loosening the screw should help to prevent that?

    What way is that?

    It is a very good offering from BMB! In my eyes, it is strong in both bot & alt mode. the transformation is not complex as well. My only major gripe is that the chest is protruding out forward more than I like. I have to see a video of Fire Scorpion before I decide between the 2.

    Had a play with the bot mode. Feels pretty great, though the shoulders are a tad loose when extended out. Took some pictures, including a comparison with the straight OS KO.
