    I have all three versions of him and have no issues. V1, V2 (with the fixed knees and yellow arm arrows), and V3 (silver pants). Love them all.

    Still waiting to see if they do another run with the white legs.

    If I want to do a Starscream on the shelf then I suppose the white leg version would look best. I also see definitive proof that Seekers are supposed to be equal in height to Optimus Prime. And also Rachet. And also Wheeljack. Damn, Sunbow, won't you please just pick a size for these guys?

    How well does the silver leg version hold his gun? Preordered the $70 te01 but I’m considering this too

    I preordered the Evangelion MP 44 KO on ShowZ. I think it's expected to be here in Q3 2022.... I'm going to try and forget about it until then.

    Not very well still. I cut down the peg on the gun, and I need to add some Future or some super glue, but haven't yet. In the pose you see, it's fine.

    The real question is, are these repaints actually happening, or is it just Showz jumping on ChChChCh's digibashes?

    Any other stores have them listed?

    Other stores don't, but that might be because Showz were talking with the factory that made the MP-44 KO when they had the vote for the next repaints.

    No idea what in the world 2 is, but unfortunately 9 didn't make the cut.

    Two questions

    1. Have you tried 40w shock oil to lubricate the joints, to avoid sheering?
    2. How do the joints hold up to posing once they are pulverized into friction joints?

    This is my 3rd KO ever and they have all been from known sellers on Ali express. I’m very happy with them.

    Is there a white legged version of this that holds together properly in alt mode yet?

    My V2 originally was going to be my bot mode and my V1 was going to be my alt mode, but V2 holds together so well in truck mode, that I changed my mind and V1 stayed my bot mode.

    So yes. V2 does great in alt mode.

    I had difficulty with getting the gas tanks tabbed in on my V1. I could get it done, and they would stay tabbed in...until you looked at it wrong :D 

    V2, alt mode tabbed in perfect and stayed in alt mode. But in bot mode, one of his legs kept wanting to come untabbed. So he's my alt mode, LOL.

    My V3 is solid all the way around. Looks good in both modes, but it seems like alt mode was a little finicky getting it tabbed in, but I did eventually. But he stays in bot mode on my OP shelf anyway.
