    the only complaint I can remotely think of atm is size + the pieces by his hips being of a softer material. I'm just really satisfied with how this feller was designed and that he's scoring well with those who have him atm

    The open holes all over his top is really putting me off on him personally. I love how the robot mode looks but the tank is killing me.

    Every single MPM thread people say this, so not a hot take or original. TBH it is kind of a bummer to read every single year.

    I don't understand what you mean.

    Understandable. A year and a half ago I didn't even know there were 3rd party companies making improvements on official figures. Most of what I own are KOs and it's nice to see how they have fixed things and sad to see that a lot of these things were issues in the first place but got released.

    the open Brawl manhole has never really been a personal issue, and only when others remind me do I remember about it

    can’t remember if I’ve ever purchased through them.

    is it like eBay here where some sellers are more reliable than others? If so, how can I tell?

    I found it and might purchase it. Unsure how to determine how safe a purchase it is.

    thanks.

    It's more of stores rather than users, my only tip is that a store is reliable when it has more than +1000 followers and has above 95% rating, at worst you would only lose time in case of scams.

    Avoid at all cost stores with less than 6 months of being made, less than 700 followers and insanely cheap prices at the same time.

    Here, try to check this list. Personally, I used JLKids and DProbots, I think.
    The Knock off transformers thread
    A word of advice though. Be very carefull when you order from Ali bc sellers often list the items in an unusual way. You can often choose to purchase with or without a box. Make sure you check 3 times you got exactly what you want and if not sure contact the seller and ask.

    Thing is, a figure can ALWAYS be better, so no matter what, if hasbro released figures that were even better, the KOs would always find something to improve upon, for cheaper, with more paint, whatever. They’ll always win cause they’re taking someone else’s work. It’s fine to buy KOs, but to always say hastak stuff is lame and the KOs are always amazing is sweeping aside the fact that the KOs are always gonna be better/cheaper because of their very nature. It also just puts a damper on all actual discussion of the actual figure and it dampens the fun too. Some KOs are the exact same thing just way cheaper. How would hasbro even deal with that?

    Yeah I usually get my MPM\'s on eBay; however I saw that someone listed it on Ali express; hasbro even have their own page there. I bought brawl I was abit sceptical but the seller assured me it\'s genuine it has been dispatched and should be arriving soon
