    Seems there are more KO threads these days, than official 3rd Party stuff. Here is another one, not sure if this is news or not or if it should be just added to the KO thread, but these days it seems each major KO has its own thread. Its what the title says it is

    Yea you're right, I had to google him to remember the color scheme. So wtf is MachineBoy going for aesthetic/color-wise?

    Hopefully this is priced way cheaper than the other KO which is almost the same price as the Warbotron figure.
    I need this to be around $150 for me to bite.

    Looks more like Energon Bruticus Maximus colors except Vortex is blue instead of orange like the second helicopter from that set

    That blue Vortex would make a nice basis for a Rotorstorm custom.

    So these are separate to WuKong Warbotron KOs, or are they companies related?

    I don't think so, but Machine Boy also goes by the names Meng Badi and Fancy Cell Toys.

    The color on these is more inpsired by Energon Bruticus Maximus than G2.

    I'd love them if they were Battle Gaia or G2 colors but, as is, I'll pass.

    I am trying to see the names listed on the pictures of the display. It looks like Vortex is called Nightingale and Swindle is called Foxhound. I can barely read the Blast Off name, looks to be Shadow Shuttle?

    I think no and no. I think the initial reports of both were wrong, but I will confirm when my Nightingale toy arrives in the mail. I expect normal sized and all plastic.

    The ebay listing does not mention diecast, and says they are about 7 inches tall, Voyager size.
