    Guess a lot of people want a KO rather than the official, first time I'm seeing that for MP ko's. cool, it'll encourage them to do their best.

    I'm aware of all of this. By silver I also mean grey, basically I want Prime's thighs to be the colour the animators intended, not the colour they went with to represent silver. Basically like they did on MP-10.

    ShowZ will have more, they sell out and add more a lot of times.

    I never go out of my way to get a KO if the official is good. Megatron and Ultra Mag are the KO I went out of my way to get because they are superior to the official. I sold my unopened 44 but will buy this KO if it gets good reviews. Doesn't seem like Takara were encouraged with KO sales because the quality has continued to decrease (I have Sunstreaker mold as the pinnacle of the MP line before a vast quality drop.)

    I have the Infinite Transformation Megatron and don't regret it for a second. This is the first time I've heard the KO Magnus had any changes done, do you know what they were?

    I think he had improved shoulder articulation and no butt flap.

    NB stands for no brand. Basically just means 1:1. Could either have a copy of takara's box or a boring brown box. I hope it has some sort of art at least.

    Just sold my MP44. I know it's a risk, but I'm willing to take it. Let the gambling game begin!

    Even if they sell the accessories after as an add on for the same price, it will still be coming in around half the price of the original. Looking forward to seeing how it is, if it’s Wei jiang level then happy days. Do we know who is behind this yet?

    Hopefully this is the first of others. Sounds good with better joints etc, but I'll wait for one that does away with gimmick stuff like lighting/speech, and does something - anything - about that ludicrous backpack (and yes, have seen it IRL and it looked as bad to me in hand as it does in photos). Fingers crossed.

    My main problem with MP44 has always been the wobbliness. I couldn't stand it. I have IT01 as well and he is sturdy as a rock! He's a far superior figure to handle over MP44 because of that.

    I'm hoping they improve the sturdiness in the waist and hips. I like that they'll add diecast to various regions and I also like that they'll improve the shoulders and the knees. I also hope they improve the paint on the crotch while they're at it. As it's a 1 - 1 imitation, they probably wouldn't be able to change that much.

    I hope there will be other options down the road. I think the pre-order numbers will make for a good indicator of buyer interest just from this KO alone.

    Not a fan of the added diecast that is only there for the stupid heft... But more ratchets are welcome!
