The unknown is very intriguing
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.
this is actually a transformers jr trypticon.
4 inches tall
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.
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...
About how long does it usually take to get stuff from China? I ordered two kos from bhiner and I'm excited to get them
That depends on how close to China you are and the shipping method used.
Everything between a week and 3 months
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.
Aha! Well, that makes sense! They'd probably win over more people with a Pyro homage (a bit less obscure than that repaint) but it's still all good.
Yeah, it can really vary. I've had some really slow delivery times from Chinese sellers to Canada in recent years... but I generally expect about a month-ish.
In some cases, it can be faster. If you get a larger order at Sirtoys (for example) that needs to be sent EMS (a bit pricier than Air) you can sometimes see it arrive in around 2 weeks.
What recolored ones?
I'm not so sure. I've ordered some toys from SirToys and the supplier seemed to be in Singapore, and it was fast. I've ordered other stuff and it has seemed longer and it's from China.
Both were/are EMS and I'm just down the continental road in Japan. One of my current orders feels like it's taken longer than two weeks, even via EMS. I suppose it's all down to the suppliers?
Some cool kos from Bangkok
I think Hornet Blast is a ko of rid grimlock in movie colours. No clue about red spider. Both are voyager and look like they could fit into a generations collection.
These bad boys.
If their quality is anywhere close to the oversized figures WeiJiang has done (or if WJ made these themselves, I don't know who's behind these...) I'll be happy.
I believe they're both based off their respective Cyber Battalion molds?
Wow, good work. Google tells me you're correct. I didn't even know that was a line!
Those both seem to be KOs of the Cyber Battalion official figures, only released by Hasbro in Brazil and other developing nations. The Grimlock design and colours, although as you say based on two different versions, was done just so by Hasbro.
G2 Autobot combiner goodness awaits you, Challenger.
They have diecast parts.
They're not Same scale though.
How's the qc??
Pretty much perfect. The toys a *limited* from a design perspective both KO and Official, but the QC on the KOs is as good as the real ones...and with the diecast arguably the build quality is even better...though YMMV, as the diecast is more paint chip prone than plastic...but mine have had very little of that.
Thanks for the info. I'm thinking of recovering the heads and feet to make a tm megatron
