Dammit. I'm in.
I ordered mine a couple days ago. Now the long wait from China. I couldn't turn down $99 shipped.
Do I need a second one? I am a few days away and think this might be worth keeping a MISB one. I guess I will know in the next few days.
I bought a second one, and I do not regret it!
I'm currently working on a rusty repaint on my first.
Hopefully he will be up for sale on eBay in the next week or so.
What do you guys think is a fair asking price for a decent repaint of this beauty?
Normally I avoid cheap KO crap, but this one actually looks half-decent. How's the build quality?
You will reevaluate what you think the word knock off means if your brain can even grasp the awesomeness that is this figure. It'll be top 5 in your collection
Um. Reximus. This. OS MP10. You are missing new levels of awesomeness.
Preach it brother!
I'm impressed it has diecast parts (hey, it's a lost art). And that shiny red is hot. Though I do still love my Asia Premium Leader Prime, this guy seems worthy to stand next to him.
Yeah, it's not really fair calling this or MPP-10 KOs. I propose a new word - VIOSKO. That stands for Vastly Improved Over Sized Knock Off. I think it's kind of catchy, so lets all start using it please.
No, what are we, the military?
Now, imagine a KO OS MP-22. Considering Magnus already holds the record for tallest MP currently, picture the size of that thing.
I dont wanna, Magnus barely fits on my shelf now
It's rock-solid without looking like a Tonka toy. This figure makes the originals look like cheap, KO crap. Even the Leader-class stuff can't touch this.
This piece will make you re-evaluate your stance on knockoffs and whether or not it should even be called a knockoff. Without reservation I can say that no mainline Transformers toy in recent memory including Masterpieces has seen this kind of love in terms of engineering (yes, it's based on a pre-existing toy but there's a lot of original engineering and improvements that went into this), materials, attention to detail and overall production value. Yes, it's that good.
Unfortunately, this also means that the bar has been set impossibly high. With the rampant cost-cutting in almost every mainline toy line these days, I don't foresee any official product even approaching this kind of quality. If anything, get this as a statement piece. It's obvious that the people who designed and built this did it as a labor of love, and it's a testament to what can be done when profit isn't the primary motivation.
Unfortunately, the left rear view mirror has been reversed so the actual "mirror" is on the wrong side.
Does anyone know if I can remove the small pin the reverse the mirror myself, please?
I wholeheartedly agree that M-01, MPP-10 and the Trailer are so fat beyond the "regular" definition of "KO", that they're practically 3P collector's items.
USUV (UpScaled Unofficial Versions) anyone?
So am I remembering correctly that this or another company is making a larger more premium DOTM Megatron? Because I think I would actually marry such a thing.
If you have this guy in hand, you'll be saying "My APS Leader Prime seems worthy to stand next to this guy". It's pretty much universally agreed that everyone in this thread that owns him considers him a top 5 Transformer. Not just in our collections but ever.
So we want a dirty truck instead of a triple changer megatron? There should be a poll which we can submit to black apple
There are a few KOs out there that recently, have upped the bar on the meaning of "KO." Anything WeiJiang has put out, as well as KuBianBao.
As of recent, it's KBB's Crosshairs, Drift, Lockdown, Hound, their AoE Dinobots and WJ's Evasion Prime, Hound, and for those that want it, MPP-10 and MP Bumblebee (not sure if the last one is WJ or not)
It's a great time to be a Transformer collector, especially is scale is something that you try to keep up with.
