    What are the issues? I own both and don't have any major nor multiple issues with them.

    That's funny :)  Kup and springer 1.0 are what got me into MFT in the first place. Fun little toys even if they were a bit iffy.

    My Jinbao OS Gravity Builder is a thing of beauty and holds himself up without any biv issues. My favorite Devvy to date. My son and I enjoyed the Seeker Airmada, too. As long as you're careful these are all great selections. :D

    If you don't have issues, then you're a lucky man :)  On my figures I saw poor material quality (reasonable), some areas without paint (seekers and Optimus), stress marks (Optimus and Megs), scratches (Megatron silver), stuck pieces (Both Megatron), broken pieces (Seekers), loosed articulations (Devastator OS, Optimus and Megs, easy fix), a few poor finished details (for example my OP was unable to close the trailer, until I fixed it)... I had all the jinbaos KO and I accept the issues, they're very cheap and still worth it. Only for the accessories and fun, they're very recommendable... but sincerely I prefer MFT over Jinbao.

    agreed, have both the KOs of meg and seekers and while definitely not in the same league in quality and finish of the original NA, no real QC issues with either. and for the price you really can't complain.

    I'd welcome some other colour options for Jinbao's Upscalled "Seekers" that is for sure.
    They are a good scale for me I feel.

    Exactly! the perfect description for Jinbao figures. We got what we paid. If I want to be more exigent with my toys, I go to other brands like NA or MST. What Jinbao does is perfect for the price if you're aware of what are you buying. But sincerely, they don't have a full variety of characters, they only copy the main characters. Gaps that only MFT could fill... but they stopped to KOing figures.

    Any way, I'm fine with their own designs (MFT), I think they made the best choice: no competitors, they can do whatever they want with the prices. BUT... they're still being Legend+ figures hard to fit with MST or NA, except for a few figures (Ultra Magnus 2.0, Astrotrain, maybe Inferno / Grapple, possibly Blitzwing).

    I can only find the cartoon colours of the Reissue mft dinobots in stock? Has anyone seen the metallic ones? As far as I knew it was only the toon ones being reissued?

    nope, MFT never announce re-issue of metallics. only the toon with the option of blue and red swoop. i'm patiently hoping they will redo the metallic as that's the set i'd want.

    Just saw this on the MFT weibo. With Vecma not in the works currently, wonder about the future of more headmasters. Was really hoping for a Cerebros at some point o_O

    Thanks I'm pretty sure it was you TIKnTIN that mentioned it before, me too I literally need Grimlock and Sludge in metallic to complete or will probably just get them in toon colours and try repaint them to match the rest.

    This is unfortunate, but booooy does it make me happy they at least completed the “main 7” Headmasters. It would have been infuriating it there had been, like, one that didn’t get made.

    Would love to see what they could have done with the UT horrorcons considering the great job they did with everyone else.

    The note doesn't really sound like they are fully out of the game, just having production problems.

    but these are their moon models maybe they release that on their own and MFT does the production of the transformers designs they make.
    They seem to be releasing.

    I think that is misleading they are likely talking about Vecma in general - so anything "vecma" is likely effectively cancelled. But they only speak about the Moon model (i.e. static model of the Lunar sphere on a stand).

    I was quite looking forward to some of the other Lunar stuff so hopefully when they get another factory they can come back strong on that - I was good stuff (even if to be honest a bit expensive). I was looking to that tank thingy and the Chinese Stealth Plane too. I find buy that stuff helps keep my interest in Diaclone going too.

    I’d still like some more seekers. I don’t hate the previous ones and would buy more if they made them.

    I'd buy a Cereberos. Maybe he could turn into "fortress" instead of the head of FM.

    Me too, Cerebros and a Lord Zarak would´ve been a great finale to the series, along with Apeface and Snapdragon... :( 

    It seems Octane is a little bit smaller than Astrotrain :(

    After handling the Jinbao NA upscales, I've basically put the MFT seekers in permanent alt mode. The bot modes feel real dated and obsolete now.
