This goes for Hasbro/Takara MP and 3rd Party VS any KO company. My opinion is that KO is better when it comes to Combiners as of late. Considering the copious amounts of the QC issues in most $100+ figures nowadays, KO is way better because it's priced right. Take Warbotron for example. LITTERED with QC issues across the board and they STILL expected $100 each figure. I'd rather buy the KO at $30 each and fix the problems myself than pay $100 for authentic and have to fix the problems my slaggin self. That's not to say that a lot of these 3rd Party companies don't make good figures but Emgo said it right. They need to stop wasting their budget on Comics, Collecter Cards and other fluff and just focus on making the figure(s) the best they can make them. I'm not an MP collector so all I have to go off of is what my MP collecting friends tell me but a lot of them find the same with some MP products and 3rd Party MP scaled products. What do you guys think?
