    Its name appears to be "噬心魔" or "Shì xīn mó" (I'm not 100% sure on that middle character), which they have translated to "Devouring the Heart Devil". If I got that middle character right, it perhaps more appropriately translates to "The Evil Within" or "Inner Demon".

    More from TransFans:
    Google translate reveals this as...
    - 36.8cm tall
    - 349 Yuan (US$49) retail I suspect this is a mistranslation, as that seems very cheap to me.
    - Expected to start shipping to retailers at the end of October.
    1. Extra detailing. Direct translation is "increase body plug star details"
    2. New head with lights. Boo! Lights!
    3. Modified backpack configuration.
    4. More alloy parts. Joints are mentioned, toes and another piece I can't ID are pictured.

    I hear that. I'm personally leaning a little more towards the WJ based on the quality difference between M04 Armed Cannon and LS10 Storm Pioneer, plus my dislike of light-up eyes (they always look so dead when they're not turned on). That the WJ is 50 yuan dearer may hint that they've gone a little harder with it, or that this is the start of an OSKO price war.

    Agree, also not a fan of LED eyes but that "modification of the backpack" and "shape adjustments". I just need a direct compare from all angles :D

    I dig the tattoos are sweet, but as far as the backpack goes, they just made it so you can flip the fins upside down now? What are the "character shape" adjustments?

    Disappointed at the os ko choices of late. Seems like it’s 100% hasbro stuff, specifically movie toys.

    This is the one to watch for me. I hope the SS Shockwave gets a similar sized OS KO. I give up on waiting for Dream Factory.

    So Black Mamba is also making one? I'm a sucker for light-up eyes, so i'm going with this one, even if it is a tad too tall.
    What i'm worried about is if it's going to have ratchets or not, as the lack of those sorta ruins their otherwise great RotF Megatron. Did their LS-03 have ratchets?

    It has light up eyes and is even bigger then the other oversized one? Yeah I definitely know which one I'm getting.
    Since the original MPM already has ratchets I'm sure this one will too. Also yes LS-03 has ratchets.

    It's only their SS KOs that don't have ratchets then. Both their Ironhide and Barricade have ratchets, so i had a feeling their Optimus did as well.
    It's a good thing that this will have ratchets, cause the RotF one can be a nightmare to pose.

    What will this guy scale with? For what it's worth, what could the original MPM-08 scale with? There's no way Megatron was that much larger than Prime.

    No he's not sure...he's just doing what trolls do....TROLLIN!

    a picture was posted showing how this scales with their ls-03 and ls-06. They're clearly attempting to establish their own scale for these figures ensuring more sales and thus Sustainability. Either be like most people and 1: purchase all or the select figures you want or 2: don't purchase at all. But dont be that person complaining because this scale doesn't fit the scale you want.

    SN: i still need that 45-50 cm jetfire!
