    My understanding is an actual shipment of them being available vs. His preliminary test version? He's a ko'llector, just as we are... Probably just shots of his personal bot?

    I already have all the Wj os Dinobots, in original colours, sans Grimlock, since I opted for the black version, and Snarl, since I opted to get the voyager and maybe the Wj version of it if they make one. Dunno if I'll pick these up too.

    Yeah, but generally speaking, he usually gets stuff at retail, and there typically isn't that much of a delay between ActionFigureChecklist and Sirtoys. Did you hear this directly from Paul, then?

    Yeah, from Paul himself... Could be sooner, I just stated what I was told.

    Are there any KO, improved version of the deluxe Warpath?

    I'm planning on repainting my black Dinobots to be more like Nemesis Grimlock, complete with metallic purple, teal, etc, plus perhaps some gloss and matte black parts. In a perfect world, I would switch out some parts with the dark, smokey-clear/chromed parts from additional KOs, but I'm not made of money. I'm going to add reprolabel Decepticon symbols in all of them, too. I might keep some gold paint on them, or move gold details to other areas (for a "Grand Scourge" vibe) does anyone know is Scrash or Sludge are available as dark/black OSKOs?

    The red HotSpot is a limited run WeiJiang is making for KOncept Art Toys, they're currently in production. They've started a thread for him (Nicknamed "Chief Fire") KAT - 02 Chief Fire
    1-2 months sounds about right, maybe a little sooner.

    Nice idea, but a waste for me. I only want one that's in scale with regular CW figs, so an oversized one will not cut it. Oh, well, I am sure an official version will come out later, what with the official Hasbro "Inferno" recolour of Hotspot coming out. The only thing for me would be if they were really cool and released recoloured limbs and re-released Rook and a slightly recoloured Alpha Bravo as official members of Guard City (replacing the samish looking versions of the original team), plus a slightly recoloured police car. Heck, throw in two extra "Kabay only" recolours of a drill tank and spaceship and I would be all over it from Takara.

    So "bound rogue" and "beast wars snarl" and beast wars 2 "Tasmania kid" are all the same mold?

    If anyone had all three of those, I'd bet they'd jump on this lil' novelty.

    Snarl and Tasmania Kid are the same colours, I think.

    I need to see the robot mode from Paul's pics, to see if it's really Bound Rogue. The blue, peeping from within the mold seems to suggest it is, though.

    Robot mode.

    Seems to be an old one. Found behind a shop covered in dust, packaging disintegrating, they might have been just about to throw it out. It was in a box of random broken toys. Rescued it just in time :)

    "Next week on P.E.T rescue, we find a plastic Tasmanian Devil, rescued from a dirty, cramped shop in China..."

    Anyway, that's not Bound Rogue, but a KO-coloured Snarl, probably. At this stage, perhaps the original packaging style might dictate what it was meant to be?

    Hey, anyone here have the OS kbb bee/stinger figures? How big are the heads? (Compared to say, a titan master?) I have a plan, but need to swap the head out.

    Also need to know how big the neck ball joint is, or if it uses another system for head movement. A swivel could work perfectly for me to mount a spare gunpla neck joint on for the replacement head.
