    Ok so in general which one is likely to have better quality, MB or this one?

    MB fo' sho.

    I have all of the current MB combaticons, and the Jinbao Predaking. While I like both, the MB combaticons are a cut above. They are not without faults, but they are better. With that said, I will still be getting the Jinbao ones because they are bigger and fit the size of my current collection better. I will be repainting it completely, though. While not necessary, it takes it to the next level. The Jinbao Predaking didn't necessarily "need" a repaint, but the original paint apps weren't exactly the best, nor applied very well. I'm expecting the same, here.

    I asked my wife if an extra 2.5 inches would make a difference and she said it would. It really, really would.

    i was pleasantly surprised with the QC for the OS Rex I received, especially the upgrade kit, so I'll be watching this as well.

    I have the original as well. I also had MMC Feral Rex. I had no concerns selling Feral Rex for nearly what I paid for it and funding Jinbao Feral Rex + a few other things like MPP10. I'll be doing the same with Warbo :)

    Nice loud ratchets joint. But my problem with WB is stress marks. Wonder if they really put die cast parts there.

    So they fixed the combiner arms so they can hold the gun up without drooping it seems, but they made the whole thing so heavy that the ankles and waist are now prone to tipping over. I would not put this guy on a high shelf.

    Jinbao better maintain this quality for their next KO, hopefully it will be Gravity Builder or Computron.

    Does anyone remember when Jinbao Warbotron was originally teased? I just wanted to know the lead time for release. It was probably 6-9 months or so.

    This is so good looking. I am definitely going to buy him if my MotU classics sale goes through.

    Um, I believe that this one is dropping VERY soon. This isn't a "tease" that is months away based on Rubadubspawns supplier's facebook .

    Yes, it will be shipped very soon.

    I am just saying that Jinbao Bruticus was initially teased about 6+ months ago via facebook/weibo with one picture. Just want to know how the wait is usually from that point in time.

    Forgive my being slow, but is this the same Oversized figure pictured in this thread? That's a great deal!
