    Got mine a couple of days ago from Baba
    His communication has been top at this time
    Liked the figure but had to remove a little flash moulding to clip in the hip cannons
    Got the right size batteries for the robot head and Dino head today
    Love it even more now
    The david cage clips, the red eyes on the Dino and robot head
    He’s great quality
    I imagine transforming him will be stressful and might need to look at flash moulding on tabbing again?
    But so far fantastic - most expensive KO I’ve bought - but size and electronics make it feel like a steal

    Toysmage is shaping up to be a high quality KO company.

    Looks like a V2 is coming?

    After a month and a half, mine is finally scheduled to be here this Tuesday. :/

    What was wrong with the first release that would need improving?

    Maybe v2 will restore the tabs for clipping the backpack together?

    I got mine to panel up quite well actually. The thing that's odd (and I might be misremembering how the official was), is that his right side dino has what feels to be a larger than normal gap. See between the leg and body.

    At this point it just feel like this is how he is. 20200404_132236.jpg

    Got mine.

    Im a bit disappointed. Faces cant fit the head.
    Stressmark on the crotch. And the joints connecting the leg and crotch is loose. I might need to open him up

    Got my copy from Epykk today, he seems stellar.
    @ People whose faces won't fit - It's a pretty dang tight fit getting them to snap in, how much won't they fit?

    Also: Anyone with this guy - Is the dinosaur head arm like scary tight for anyone? Don't want it to break, any suggestions?

    Just seeing the news about 2.0 of Megs here. Curious what this means "clear plastic parts remade"? The rest seems like minimum upgrades or unnecessary, like the paint, which I wasn't aware was even an issue. Maybe referring to being better matched?? We shall see.

    Got mine today from ShowZ...that was a mess of a transformation. Couldn't get anything to line up quite right. I'll tackle that again another time with fresh eyes.

    Looks amazing in robot mode though. A few loose parts in transformation as others have mentioned, but pretty solid in bot mode. Feels lighter than expected.

    Really? I thought this KO from ToysMage was pretty much flawless.

    There's a known issue with the mold itself where taking off a shoulder fixes a lot of the lining up issues. Hopefully, someone will remind me which shoulder, but try it out :) 

    Edit: Thanks @Junkmech , Its the right shoulder :)

    It's the right one, the one on the dinohead arm. :D 
    Also small update: Added some tiny drops of dish soap to base arm ratchets and now they don't feel like they're going to explode. A+

    Edit:

    According to ShowZ, the V1 KO has:
    "Features:
    - The sound effects now include Japanese and English version
    - So fixes from the original version, like loose waist,
    - Add lit up eyes, the head can be also rotated at the same time
    - Add remake Transparent parts."

    Sounds like the only change to V2 is better paint.

    Thanks guys, I'll try it without the shoulder next time and see if that helps. I also don't think i had the hips in quite the right spot either so I'll have to check out some more reference overall beforehand.

    And to the people who mentioned the heads not fitting - I ran into a similar issue, they are very tight, but I popped the head off at the ball joint and was able to get the leverage needed to get them on there.

    ShowZ will sell the v2 as part of their 2nd batch.

    [​IMG] After about half an hour of fiddling (and almost throwing him across the room) i was able to get all the side panels plugged in. But i cant get the seam along the back to stay together nor can i get both sides of the tail part to tab in.

    I think the one butterfly joint won't push in flush so it's throwing things off a bit internally so that might explain the back but i cant for the life of me figure out whats preventing the tail from tabbing together.

    Is there a good seller to get this from on Ebay?
