    Well, oversized is still going to be fun either way lol.

    You're doing the Lord's work son.

    Admittedly the size is it's number one asset. He has an improved transformation, but not as good as WJ's. However, I watched the video and the changes, while awesome, won't do me any good for a shelf piece. I don't really care for the tactical vest either but that's mainly because it's a pain to put on. WJs solution is incredible.

    Aren't all our figures shelf warmers anyway?

    It comes down to size though. If WJ made it the size of KBB, I'd be all over it but it would be backburnered.

    I saw some chinese reviews so thats why I'm getting it based on just looks alone. It looks pretty awesome, the price isn't the greatest for a ko but it might be sold somewhere else

    If someone has the Asian Exclusive perhaps the link to that video might help spot any differences or lack of them.

    ***

    Also Oversize Soundwave - oh that sounds pretty interesting - I wonder if they'd consider over scale Shockwave too ?
    I wonder if that implies over scale cassettes too ?

    If anything, a straight standard or undersized Soundwave would have been better. I wouldn't have minded slightly simplified cassettes

    Hmm... Was just wondering. How big would a hypothetical Soundwave have to be to hold the MMC Remix cassettes? Could an MPP-10 scaled one pull that off?

    I was hoping he'd play the best hits of the beastie boys and make me dinner. Or at least fetch me some booze.
    Lazy Soundwave! Less scheming, more phat beats.

    If you're looking for an OS thing, MP might not be the best for him. They're too complex.

    So what's the buzz on those Voyager-sized WFC Optimus KO figures... the ones that come with the big axe?

    What's the quality like?
