    Are all the alt posed hands cross-compatible across all the characters?
    (Ratchet, Ramjet, Megatron, etc.)

    @Blazing Mewtwo, I'm almost sure I have swapped hands between those characters before and they fit fine :p

    Supply and demand, baby. When you're the only shop on the block offering what people think they're missing, there's a premium for that.
    Now, that also includes free shipping. Shipping from China does not appear to be cheap at the moment.

    Thought this worth posting here. I was really hoping that this was a matter of Jizai working for Newage rather than the company outright stealing his design. :(

    Yeah, ask the company using an unlicensed IP why they would also copy a design that was posted publicly.

    They'll probably say "Yes, we were inspired by that design, but changed much of the lower body".
    The two aren't identical. In fact, aside from the head, I'd say that Jizai's looks much better than Newage's.

    Wait, what?

    I thought NA came out with their design first?

    I'm probably one of the biggest NewAge apologists on the board, but that's clearly the same design. Less different than CW Dead End to Streetwise. I thought this was common knowledge, though. I remember someone mentioned this last summer when the NA design first came out.

    Not trying to split hairs, but you did notice the leg wheels in completely different places? It's unarguably inspired by the other design, but it's not the same.

    To be honest, I don't really care who's stealing who's design. I mean I been working in product design for some years, is very common others steal your design. When people steal your idea of course you be very piss sometimes but that's the reality you have to learn to get over with it and do better then the people who steal your ideas instead of whining and cursing like a bitch. I mean that's my opinion, chill.

    It's the same design, just rotated 180 degrees. The New Age version can rotate the same way and almost pull off the same look but there's not enough clearance to close the leg.

    thinking about this furthur, is this any better or worse than say MFT (just to name one company) when they OS KO another company's released figure design with or without possibly slight improved alterations?

    NA stealing or using partial designs from other designers isn't new. Just look at Teletran and Meg's throne sets. Personally, I think NA could've did their own and a better job too versus what they put out. Same with IH/Ratchet.

    Especially when you literally share a design publicly. If you don't want a design copied, you don't share it.
