    What is it with these KO companies producing stuff barely that much bigger than the official figures? Not to mention the lack of improvement on the original deco too.

    More and more I miss WeiJiang...

    Lack of detail is much more apparent at really large sizes. They'd have to do a LOT to it to make it look good at say MPM scale. I really miss Black Apple/weijiang too but for now I guess this is what we get. There's also apparently a 1:1 KO that WILL have improvements, which is what I'm really looking forward to.

    Looks like the new Primal will scale better with 102 in beast mode, which is nice. But having him bigger than Optimus in bot mode wouldn't be too illogical either just due to his beast mode size.

    Does SS Primal really lack that much detail though? Outside of the model kits and higher end stuff he's the most accurate figure available at general retail and has all the necessary details that a bit of paint wouldn't hurt to help improve even further on.

    1:1 KO and 1:1 with improvements I'm perfectly okay with as that's how I managed to get my ROTB SS Prime but if the only notable difference is a slight size increase with nothing else changed then that just comes off as half-hearted in my opinion. You might as well just focus on making it either a 1:1 or a 1:1 with improvements instead.

    If you're going to upscale a figure, then I say really go for it. Give us something that will actually make the average collector take a second look at to pique their interest. I'm fairly certain that is how a lot of us ended up owning figures like MPP-10 as an example.

    I skipped out on the official SS Primal twice before and because of the ridiculous retail prices my country has. I'm considering getting this cheaper alternative, the size doesn't matter to me as I own the MHM-01 Supreme Commander so scale isn't really an issue to me. Only thing I'm really cautious about is the QC

    Once you size a SS figure up to MPM scale then even the most detailed figure will look shitty is all I’m saying. That’s a huge size increase. I totally agree that just upscaling slightly is half-assed but it won’t look bad with the official Optimus and will still look plenty detailed. I’m mostly in this thread cause another KO with improvements was also announced around the same time. Also I just like the Optimus Primal mold so I’ll check out different versions of it, half-assed or no.

    I hope one of these companies eventually releases him in the original BW colors. I've seen several customs and photoshops of various ROTB Primals and the design looks amazing with the added red, white and blue

    Yeah for some reason they’re both here for now. Maybe it’ll change in the future if it becomes more than just a vague announcement.

    That’s great because I accidentally broke Primal’s toe a few months ago (I was using it to flip it up and down and it couldn’t handle the force I guess) and superglued it, but when I took him out from storage today the glue didn’t last and I can’t find the toe anymore.

    The company of OSKO Primal will also make an Apelinq kit for the osko, they used pictures of DNA set and some custom done by chinese collectors as references while designing.

    SS Primal is my figure of the year so I’m really interested in how they make Apelinq and how different Hasbro’s will be.

    Hmh, if it's cheap and decent quality I can see myself getting two. I looked up customs based on comments here and it really does look nice with some more colour on it. So maybe get one as is, get one to paint. Or one to paint and wait for a modified version. Hmh.

    I didn't get the original one because it's out of stock or 129€ and most of the other beast figures look like pants.
