    I have an extra pair of brand new insignia for sale (US & CANADIAN residents only) for $17.99US. I'm selling it on behalf of ShowZ bec. they resent me an extra one after Canada Post told me my first order was sent back to sender.

    Got my Lewin Resources oversized prime today.
    Not too bad.
    Unfortuntetly, the left foot has paint issues. Most likely caused by semi dry paint covered with the protective plastic.(I did even try using a magic eraser, but it’s not a film residue and the eraser was turning blue so I abandoned that before it made it worse).
    The bottom of one of my smoke stacks keeps falling off due to really loose fit.
    Also a hairline stress crack was on one of the tabs that hold the pin for the vent panel.

    Aside from these issues it’s a great piece. I got a metal autobot logo from the same seller as linked above on eBay. I like it. I don’t really like the one from other site that is raised. This one sits flush.

    Anyway, got this from The Chosen Prime site. Awaiting to hear back from Brandon about maybe getting a replacement smoke stack and what to do about the paint issue. The stress Mark is not yet a crack and I don’t plan to continually transform this so that should be ok.

    Still, it hurts paying what I did to have these issues. I know it’s a KO and that’s the problem. I could live a little easier with this if it had been cheaper.

    My card says LCO529 so not exactly the newest batch I’d wager.

    hmmm, not much happening with this discussion any longer I see. Well let me tell you this much. This "KO" is in ways even better made than anything hasbro or Takara is putting out. The plastic quality is on par if not better. The joints tighter and the way it all lines up much better than my hasbro MP10. So if on the fence, I'd say if you have the money, go for it. I bet these will command a hefty price someday once they are no longer being produced.

    I have owned mine for a few months now and I still have yet to buy a single battery for it. :lol 

    I do owe it to myself to get them though.

    Mine still is perfect. no issues. I don't transform him much because he's so blasted heavy. So instead I keep him in robot mode guarding my office from intruders.

    Yeah I don’t know where exactly I will put him.
    And I agree, I had thought of displaying in truck mode but he looks too cool in robot mode so that’s how he will stay.

    Truck mode would be a little easier to find the space for though. You Just have to chalk that wheels. Once that thing starts rolling it rolls. It’s a heavy toy.

    Waiting on what Lewin's next project will be. Recent post on their FB page has this cryptic message when translated through google:

    "Humanoid new packaging, new layout, new liner, knocking on the blackboard: the inside and outside of the package are kept well. This version is not replaced after the New Year's edition. I don't know much, I will have a new color in the future. Guaranteed to increase the amount of 30% accessories [smirking] limited edition worldwide only for 1 time, if there is a chance to overseas mystery customer customization 1.8 movable celestial statue will also open a few to everyone to see our communication, in short, we do everyone to see Yes, our quality and service, everyone feels, there are many good things, and you will wait for us."

    Wonder what color scheme it's going to be? A battle-damaged one would be interesting.

    Man this thing is only $320?! Nearly 3 feet tall, still transforms, and yet is cheaper than MP-44.

    I may get him just so I can use the HOV lane when I go to work.

    Here is mine on display. Just wish you could get to his cab light switch without opening this chest up and having to close again.
    A remote would be awesome for another run. That’s hasbro mp10 below.

    Yeah. It certainly was a waste but I can think of a lot worse I could have wasted that on. Ha.

    Yup. Drugs, alcohol, anything really.
    I drive a truck so it's fun seatbelting him in the passengers seat and having him look out the window. WELL worth it.

    i take them for health issue's too as suffer chronic pain and depression ....... nothing wrong with a coctail of illegal drugs and booze now and then tho :p  :lol  now if you were buying that every day yeah i'd agree its a waste i know addicts friends and family

    a lot of 3rd party tf's are a waste as soon as a new one comes along or hastak produce a better one the one you bought goes down in value .... even some hastak mp's have gone down in value for example mp shockwave as soon as the ko hit and then the redeco it dropped in price quick i lost money on it when i sold it .... but with that in mind if you you enjoy them thats all that matters :D

    Yeah. But man this Optimus prime is,in my opinion, better than the Takara/hasbro version in terms of material.
    Not even meaning the size. But the plastic, die-cast, chrome parts. All of it. The tight ratcheting joints and the lights. Just an all together awesome piece. It’s very impressive and kids love it.
    Very glad I got it. I have no doubt the price for this will go up once no longer available based on supply and demand trends. (Not saying it should go up as it’s certainly not worth more) I know it’s technically a KO but it’s a killer KO and the emblem I got off eBay (metal) just finished the figure beautifully.

    Hi guys,

    Do you also have problems with the battery cover for his head not staying in?
    Need replacement if yours stays in.
    This is him lying on my bed.
    As soon as i get him standing, the cover will just fall off.

    My gun button is broken and only light up when i press the button in the whole time.
    I need ShowZ to replace this one for me.

    But this is awesome.
