    I will neither confirm nor deny if mine is broken, due to the possibility of jinxing it. Too nervous to check.

    I guess you could call it Schrodinger's Crotch

    The figure doesn't seem bad but looks like there are some QC problems with missing tabs on the hip armor and backpack. I'll wait for an English review for more details.

    Video review is out. Translation from a friend goes:

    Much stronger plastic than Takara. No stress marks on the crotch. Back pack is tight and steady. Possible die cast knee joints. Tabbing in pieces are pretty tight. Comes with all original accessories. No Dinobot stand.

    12:09 English speech
    15:39 Stress marks on one of the tab. The problem is not the material or QC or being a KO, the problem came with the original design. That particular tab had to endure so much stress for keeping everything together.
    23:40 Glowing eyes

    Overall pretty good for a KO. No major issues. Quality is on par with the Official. If you are a guy like me who doesn't own the official then go for it. It's well worth! ;)

    I have to consider buy this, but I need more videos from final users. Maybe that tab of the original design is a particular case.

    Lol. I'm not saying there weren't any reports of breakage. However, those swirls by themselves aren't an indication of this. The figures that broke were misassembled.

    The bigger issue with Megatron is the loose waist and it's great that they added a ratchet on the KO. Although a bit of Pledge also did the trick :D

    Doesn't appear to be the case per above post.

    Prove it. Send a picture of your crot.....Er...Never mind....I will just have to take your word for it....LOL

    So, sounds like a "wait" until we get more reviews of the KO.

    Can't wait. As my 2nd copy (to the original) this will be a WONDERFUL addition, even if, not "perfect"!

    Without a direct and thorough visual comparison to the original, I can’t decide if I want this. Gotta see how the purples and stripes compare along with all other paint apps.
    If it’s top notch I’d sell on my unopened 2nd official copy and then this would take its place but I can’t say in which mode yet.

    The T-Rex eyes look too dull without the lights on which is very annoying and makes using this for my beast mode option unlikely without having to resort to painting those little eyes myself- but also, to have a KO as my bot mode Megatron, it would have to be every bit as perfect as TT’s offering. Obviously I’d swap an official faceplate to the KO so it would feature the Predacon insignia and I could then take advantage of the improced waist joint but there’d have to be absolutely nothing to nitpick in order to make me part with the original.

    You're the only person focused on swirls. The rest of us call the issue cracks because they are fucking cracks in the figure.

    The official one was waaaaayy out of my price bracket and then I was hearing about the growing breaking,etc.
    This seems a much more viable option for me, though I will wait until I hear what others think before committing.

    Honestly the breakages on the official one were way over exaggerated. Only a few had the breaking crotchety piece due to a misassembly. Other than that I think it was people breaking some tabs, which should be okay as long as you’re careful.

    Still leaves the $320 USD ($460 AUD) price tag plus delivery. At that price I wouldn’t even want a tab breaking.

    And that's completely fair. My point was that some people act like this figure falls apart just by looking at it wrong and that simply isn't true. And once again, the tabs won't break as long as you're careful. Being a $320 figure as you said then I would hope you would be careful.

    It's in there, but it's part of a sentence if I remember correctly.
    They're all pretty random sentences imo.
    I would have preffered to have a series of catchprases like Yeeesss and Megatron laughing etc.
    To be honest I can't immediately think of much :redface2:  but anyhow.

    So this is a different company than the ones that did the Dinobot KO?

    Looking forward to more in hand reviews of this guy.

    I watched it and listened for the shampoo commercial yesss. I only heard it from the gentlemen handling the figure, as if mocking the demand for such remedial nonsense. Marketed different "sensibilities" as it seems.
