    Just realised that the box drawing is basically just LS-04 picture in black & white.

    And the font they use is the same one as BMB Ratchet

    So this is undoubtedly Black Mamba.
    What a dick move dude, riding the coattail of Weijiang

    Welp I instantly lost interest. BMB is too big a risk to go in, especially when they are trying to use Weijang’s name to sell it.

    Think about the theory when most of the third party companies, some investors or owners who develop a common business of KO toys, the companies themselves are not closely related, but their patrons may be the same person. I used to be skeptical about it, but maybe there is truth in it. we will never know for sure about this, a very narrow circle of people knows it

    I never thought this day would come...

    I think I actually shed a tear from pure happiness!

    Nah he'll be perfectly in scale. You can just bend Starscream's legs to shrink him an extra 2-3cm. It's more screen-accurate that way too.

    I find it funny that you're complaining about a KO company stealing.

    I very much need to see the OS Screamer with the rest of the regular-sized KOs. Also, I want specifics about the engineering upgrades.

    I thought they were being ironic and sarcastic.

    This. This right here is exactly why I want one.

    as much as that can be of concern, it's fortunate enough that we're still getting things that we've been pleading for quite some time-

    regardless if another company is slagging off another to make profit out of it-

    i suppose that gets them riled up in comparison to mostly getting a more hefty sized MPM starscream with an inevitable ROTF tribal marking ver that's gonna be released-

    Yeah, I'm not complaining. Just stating my observation. People kinda asking around about whose company is behind this.
    But I don't really care about who's making the figure as long as the end product is a good figure.
    (Imo kinda scummy tho clickbaiting people with a similar box design of WJ)

    frankly fair to say so- a bit deceiving that it's an augmented product, but with a box scheme that's derived from an "incognito" one

    though really, my money's on the figure itself mostly, not much on the worries-

    can't even wait to get him much so with Sentinel-

    Well, that's fine. I think tatted Screamer is ugly anyway.

    (i would honestly find that to be the literal purpose of those Tattoos on him- to make him hideous in terms of Approving him as a Surrogate defacto Leader before Megs woke up yet again)

    I've been out a while... so are we getting an MPM Starscream OSKO now? I'm glad I held off on the straight knock off...

    same here, while the clean look felt more streamlined and nostalgic

    the Tattooed alternative got me sold ever since ROTF/DOTM
