    Does this version come with the cartoon purple chest plate or do you have to get that extra?

    No, it has the same silver chestpiece as the original version.

    You know you are a good father when you put cushions to avoid your son to injury when he is learning how to stand :D

    Never knew the JinBao OS Version had hip problems. The only version I was familiar with that had horrible hip issues likes your OS was the WuKong KO which was a regular size KO of the the Regular Warbotron.
    Good job on the fix,if only me and my friend knew that 5 years ago for his WuKong KO lol.

    This set is the most far from show design accurate of any 3P Bruticus. You think a little color makes it show accurate?

    Scroll back a page and look at the comparison pics. It makes a significant difference IMO...

    Mine was fine out of the box, but overtime (6 months) a lot of the joints started become very loose. I've had Jinboa Bruticus, Predaking, Devastator, and that OS KO of the Combiner Wars Superion and all of them did the same thing. Except for the Devi, but I didn't have it long enough to find out. When I moved my collection for dusting I couldn't get any of them to resume their poses. Its what finally made me sell them all and commit to MP combiners. But I will say I sometimes wish I hadn't. These may be smaller but they never looked bad with MPs in my opinion.

    Did they scale well with your Devastator?

    It's nice but it says in the text that it's a custom not a new paint scheme.

    There was supposed to be a green, sand and grey repaint (don't know which size it is though the overscale or the machine boy size one) :

    It says Jinbao so it's probably the OKSO version. Can't seem to find it on Taobao, other that the seller that you took the photo from, but it's only on pre-order. Not sure if it's gonna be released at all.

    What size O rings did you use for the hips? I may try that for mine.

    One of his ankle ratchets is also not strong enough, which cause him to collapse from time to time. Also plan to try the same trick.

    I thought it was the bigger one (because of Blast Off's guns), but I can't read idiograms so I didn't know for sure.
    Sometimes things take a while but it may show up one day in this or another colour. (perhaps next year).
    After all these mould cost a lot to make ; one Might as well use them some more to recoup some of the costs.

    It's not the most thrilling of colour schemes, and perhaps i'd rather have a black one, but I don't dislike it either.

    I can't tell what you actually did, as I never opened the joint before. There is no problem with mine but I would like to save your fix just in case. Can you outline in the pic (MS Paint or something) and highlight what you did?

    Anyone have both this OSKO and the Devastator OSKO? Which one is better in your opinion?

    The Jinbao Bruticus is by far more playable than the Jinbao Devastator, at least for me. Their Devy is just too bulky and top heavy, even with the upgrade kit and replacement parts, it tends to be wobbly for me. It also has many parts then tend to pop out while posing it. The Scrapper-feet-bucket in particular likes to pop out of the connection tabs if there is too much weight leaning on it, and so the whole bot would topple over. I had to buy some 3d printed parts to serve as locking bracers just because those problems got annoying real fast. It does stand straight with no problems, but I can't dream of making it do dynamic poses that some people have posted over in its thread.

    Very sorry for you,it had emersed from a while that JinBao Devastator may have a weak point for combiner joints not designed to suffer OS dimensions but I was convinced that was just that combiner and JinBao Bruticus was safe. Hope that at least NBK and other 1:1 combiners are more resistant in this.
