    Can’t believe my only option if I want something that doesn’t chip and snap is to wait for Takara....

    Hold up Octo. You bring the bar of BMB too down, they are way better than Takara many times

    Their recent dragoon KO plastic feels worse than most Hasbro stuff I buy, and it gets scratched and bent super easily, so I think I set the bar pretty accurately. I have little faith in this Blackout now, and the history we’ve had with BMB only strengthens my stance.

    It depends on what Hasbro stuff you are talking about. To me that is pretty decent and there has been very few breakage reports

    I knew you'd say that but almost every single 3P has qc problems these days. Even the supposed pricy "high-end" stuff like TW, Zeta, UT, Devil Savior, MMC, Fans Hobby are not free from those so following this logic you should probably quit collecting 3P and MPs altogether :D 
    At least those BMB figures are cheap, or as I like to say "good for the price" :D 

    Too give BMB some credit - their MPM4 KO was much more solid and durable than Thunder Leader :rolleyes:

    Idk.... so far they’ve just been cheap. There’s QC and then there’s just... being cheap. (Their dragoon didn’t convince me of their abilities)

    Whatsup my fellows...just got done with a 5+ hour drive and happened upon this post...
    First off @TheDude810 is out of line...Hide Shadow is awesome
    then I skimped through this post...it is indeed BMB? Nevertheless I always hold hope to companies and figures BUT I do have Hide Shadow and a cramped apartment I do my vids in, gym room and game room, lol...Hide Shadow I don't think can be dethroned in my library, but you never know. :D

    I just think the logic "Black Mamba=bad quality, a 3P would do it better" does not really apply today. I think I've just seen too many bad quality figures that were supposed to be expensive but worth it - Zeta's Blitzwing, Transcraft Bee, TW Knight Orion, TW Freedom Leader, FH Naval Commander's initial release (yes, FH fixed it eventually but still, many people are stuck with the 1st batch that is irredeemable) while on the other hand I got MPM Starscream KO, Ratchet KO, ATT Dino KO, MA Blitzwing (yes, had some issues but easily wins over Zeta) - all good figures for a decent price. Heck, even Sky Breaker had less issues than original Dragoon if you think about it (too tight or broken knees)
    My point is that there's no rule if a figure is 80$ KO or a 180$ 3p/mp - both have a chance to suck completely but we should hope for the best or just stick to CHUGS (cause those usually have a good qc since they are aimed at 7yos :D  )

    Was, exactly, their recent stuff has been riddled with weird QC issues.
    That's true though.
    For a better Optimus?

    I mean, you're a cheap guy.

    Stuff like Mista isn't cheap and the quality is incredible, but you think it's overpriced.

    You... kinda get what you pay for.

    Indeed. Very cheap.

    I know my way around cheap and expensive figures. I have plenty of expensive ones that are actually worth the money. Mista wasn’t. And the KO dragoon felt cheap even for the $85 I paid.

    I want value for what I bought, not just low price points.

    So as EmGo. And many times, when Ben called a toy "BMB", EmGo called it "WJ". I mean, noone can be sure for 100%. Let's just wait.
