    I'm not really getting the argument that it's a KO therefore should be cheaper, this isn't just upscaled but all joints etc reworked to factor in the excess weight, along with fitting in all the lights I'm not sure how this is your run of the mill KO and only deserving of a KO price.

    I think the current price including shipping is more than fair

    Sorry if this derails the thread but here's another big boy to go alongside Lewin! 50-60cm in height supposedly and about $500 AUD / $350 USD

    hmmmm... That's a deceptively large box (combined with a slightly smaller than average American male?).
    I guess the boxes of the two figures might be comparable, but if that 1/20 at the beginning of your advert pic refers to its scale, then that'd make the pilot slightly smaller than a g.i. joe figure (which is 1/18 scale, i.e. ~3.75").
    Other listed dimensions of [570mm x 620mm] = [57cm x 62cm] which is roughly [22.4" x 24.4"].

    I think this OS'd Optimus is in scale to 6" figures (I should find out within the week since I got the tracking number yesterday!!:D :D )

    Found this other pic, out the box, that gives a better idea of the figure's scale 'in-hand.' ;)

    This might scale quite nicely with some of the custom GI Joe strikers I recently picked up...

    I might have to look more into this how posable this valkyrie is as well as its pilot's accessibility.

    Wow that massive Valkyrie looks very cool. But I won’t buy it. It has no place in my collection. I will skip it.

    Just need to keep repeating that to myself.

    Lewin actually has fixed battery covers for the head now. I got one free with the replacement parts I asked for from TF-Direct. Also, it looks like they are reinforcing the connection slots for the smokestacks as well in future runs. I wonder what else they'll be changing?

    You might try asking your seller if you can get one of the fixed battery covers from Lewin.

    If I was gunna get a giant Valkyrie—or really any Valkyrie, a “Do You Remember Love” version is what I’d go with, besides maybe Isamu’s and Guld’s units in “Macross Plus.”

    Still, while it’s not a need, that looks awesome... after asssembly and paint if that is a model kit! xD

    @ShowZStore Have you heard anything about a new battery cover? Any chance of getting a fixed battery cover?

    I bought another one after getting the first one. Ive been collecting for over 10 years, and one thing i'm sure of in my whole collection is that 10 years from now this thing will be just as strong....never seen anything like it.

    That's going to be difficult to handle the gun in this scale.

    Got in to work this morning to a VERY LARGE box sitting on my desk. This thing is HEAVY and MASSIVE.
    Way to big for me to reasonably open and take a look at here in the office... LOL. Normally I don't mind taking a few minutes to play with a new MP or figure at my desk, but this?
    I'll have to lug it home and crack it open tonight. Very excited!!
    Grand total of US$244 shipped to Australia thanks to TaoBao.

    ShowZStore Will those who ordered from ShowZ be able to get replacement battery covers for the head, like TF-DIRECT is doing?

    Mine arrived today from TaoBao and as well as the main baggy with various grey and blue bits (most of which I have no idea what they're for) there was a second baggy with another battery cover for behind the head. It looks pretty much the same as the first but is a much tighter fit and doesn't pop out easily. The one in the main baggy just kind of loosley sits in place and falls out immediately but this one is a much tighter friction fit.

    I have to say, this guy is insane. The box is about the same size as WieJIangs Omega but the sheer amss and presence of this guy is amazing. Pulling away the black foam to reveal that enromous vehicle mode is glorious. Transformation is abit of a bitch, simply because of how big this is and how tight the ratchets are! I have to brace him against my body and use two hands to move the legs, the ratchets are so solid. He stands just prefectly.
    I was kind of amazed feeling the heft of the various parts so pulled out my scales - the matric alone weight more than an MP carbot. My MP-39 weighs in at 160gms and the matric is over 200gms. Each smokestack is the same.
    I had to pull up a video to remind myself how the MP-10 transformation works because it;s so big it;s kind of hard to "feel it out".
    ToyWorld Devastator blew me away when I finally assembled all six bots into combined mode. Then Weijiangs Omega Supreme knocked that to the curb with its size, heft and general feel and stability. This thing is in another ballpark. I don't think the shelf I wqas planning to pose it on could even bear it's weight, and it's certainly not tall enough to hold this guy.

    Just wow.

    Still have no idea where any of those little blue and grey add on bits go though. Hopefully there's a video or guide somewhere explaining it.
