    Gordman's has been stocking them again but their impending closure may make finding them a bit rough.

    It appears they've used the BW Ratrap mold? Isn't that how it transformers, with the animal legs "butterflying" to the sides for robot mode?

    Was it just the Perfect Effect Hands/feet that were KO'd or were the Superion/Menasor head/chest sets also KO'd?

    Question - did your OS diecast Strafe from Wei Jiang come with two different swords, or two of the same sword?

    I bought two, each from different seller, and they both came with two of the same sword. Heck, even the instructions show two of the same sword, but the original toy had mirrored swords.

    You got it.

    Right now (as far as I've been told anyway), Pyro isnt a stretch goal, but they wouldn't rule out doing a head if fans really want one.

    Oh, I didn't mean the head. I meant that I mistook one of the three decos they previewed to be Pyro... but now that I look more closely, the colours aren't quite in the same place. But almost close enough, I guess. :)

    Ah, that deco is an homage to his Fire Chief colors in Operation Combination. GCfirechief3.jpg
    The red base gives some wiggle room for anyone looking to nip/tuck him into a G2 Hotspot, Pyro, OS Inferno, etc.

    On another note, I couldn't resist those recolored OS Stunticons on Sirtoys. Started my first Pile of Loot, it took all my willpower not to click on 20+ other KOs I've been eyeballing over the last year...

    That depends on how close to China you are and the shipping method used.

    Anyone know if there's been a KO of the Toys R Us MP-10 Masterpiece Optimus Primus? Like the lighter blues they used for the US release vs the darker blues from Takara.

    Basically been looking at the recent re-lease, worried about dropping $165 on something that doesn't seem to be as well built as what some KO companies are producing, just want this particular color scheme.
