    More like it was the Revolutionary move that started the OS KO movie craze. Everybody has made all of the OS KO figures with a few exceptions to the scale of m01 Commander because it was that brilliant of a toy. Go watch some reviews I'm pretty sure you won't be able to find one that was like oh this toys sucks. That one figure alone got a lot of people into collecting movie toys. It changed the opinions of G1 enthusiast about the movie toys.

    I like the figure, don't own it - bought for a present, but really like. But I consider another OSKO to have made that Revolutionary move. I think, M 01 Commander was released a little bit later, though it supported the revolution. Who really started the revolution is another Wei Jiang's product: MPP-10 - a king of OSKO and still a guiding landmark.

    Can you explain how an oversized version of G1 Optimus Prime resulted in all of the oversized movie Robots? From my understanding there's only four or five oversized G1 Masterpiece figures and repaints of those. Oversized Megatron oversized start screen and all the repaints oversized Ironhide and the repaint ratchet oversized Inferno oversized Bumblebee oversized sideswipe that doesn't scale with anything. So what does G1 oversized mp10 have to do with Dream Factory black mamba and all the other companies that have been making oversized Movie figures?

    Easy. You make great oversized robot that becomes a real OSKO Masterpiece and then: "So why can't we oversize something from the movie?". But I think it becomes an off-top now.

    That's not how it happened at all. Black Apple made the modifications first, and was either approached by WJ or vice versa. Either way, the OS resulted from the modifications made by BA, not because of WJ OSing anything.

    Which, by the way, OS bots are not exclusive to WJ nor did they start the "movement." "Taighonzen's Dong Man" is a line that has OS figures across the board, long before Evasion Prime or even MP10 entered the picture.

    Not sure if it's out yet, but I think the wait is worthwhile. Looking pretty good. Also, surprised to see it's a bit taller than M01.

    I knew I'd get at least one chuckle out of that.

    I don't make the names though.

    if wei jiang's megatron is named this, it would be the best figure ever. No contest.

    Unfortunately, it's a line. 50 cm Starscream, Prime, Ironhide, Megs, etc. are all under the line.

    In addition, the line carried over to regular sized KOs like that Voyager DoTM Megs above.

    But yes, I agree. The next Erector, ladies and gents!

    Very true I love my OS Starscream from them. But they made things big for the sake of being big whereas because of m01 Commander a lot of companies made things big for the sake of scaling with m01 Commander.

    Does anyone know if this is out yet? I'm quite confused. Has terry's tf club received their stock? Sorry. I've been busy recently, so I couldn't really catch up with the thread.

    People have reported that their preorders have shipped from both terry and showz. This is the second small batch. A third small batch is expected at the end of the month.

    True. And, let's not forget the improvements too!

    But yeah, Dong Man Starscream is nice. I need to paint mine some day.

    Still peeved that I didn't even make the second batch despite ordering in June :mad: 

    Out of curiosity does anyone know why Wei Jiang are taking so long to get this figure produced in decent numbers? Since it was initially released they've seemingly managed to produce about 10 of these, meanwhile they've also released their OS MPM Megatron and SS Bumblebee Movie Optimus both of which are readily available in decent numbers. Why has there been a specific problem producing this figure when the rest of their release schedule seems to be running smoothly?

    Showz started shipping some again but it was processing slowly, if you made your pre-order in March-April you'd probably get a shipping notification. Then the National Day of the People's Republic of China came and they went silent for a whole week.

    I know what you mean. Don't want to buy Megs until I get my Optimus.

    Yes. A 50cm Dong Man.

    Maybe I should say it in inches. It'll make Dong Man sound bigger.
