    Think I'll give the KOs a miss. I wanted to repaint them for Cyclonus...

    Yep. A lot of that Cool Change is downscaled, though.

    I'll just use MB Bruticus. I am curious about Superion. I'd probably buy my kid Fruticus.

    These pistol-bots look pretty cool. Probably about scout size. Each comes in either solid black, or colored version like the one below:

    Thinking maybe I should get one to check out, and if good then all four to display as a team.

    Dying to know what the deal is with these guys. Are they actually CW molds (as pictured on the box...or are they in fact the G2 deco G1 KOs you just posted?

    im assuming they are cw molds. i looked for that product on sirtoys but i didnt see it. im curious on the price. if he could get a run of different ko cw combiners, that would be something i may be into if the price is right.

    i take that back he lists them as cw g1 combiner, so i take it its not the actual cw molds, just the cw g2 colors, now that i've let it digest. i was looking for the boxed product with those cw images but i didnt see that. so i guess the latest combiners he added are what they are. or maybe he does has a lead on cw molds.. im lost..

    regardless, i got what i wanted. i wish i had more funds to waste so i could have gotten the blue superion too.. but i spent me load on some other tfs, including a human alliance barricade and windblade for the kid on xmas.. man, they cost too, that could have been my mpp10..im not really complaining though, he really likes tfers.. i didnt force it on him. and he has his own tastes in robots which is nice to see

    GiftLove Store on AliExpress has them for $14.50 loose, shipped. I got my Hardhead and Skullcruncher from there with no issues and have Highbrow and Brainstorm on the way. They've been very good to deal with, I bought some loose MFT Sharkticons from them and one arrived broken, they gladly sent a replacement.

    Hey guys! Been out of TF for about 5 years because of financial issues. Starting to look at getting back in. Can anyone point me at KO MMC Predacons (individual bots) vs Combiner Wars Constructicons vs MMC OS Predacons? Thanks! Sorry for the annoyance of talking about nothing current, but searching has failed me.

    Or opinions would do, I guess. I'm looking for the bot modes that are closest to G1 cartoon scale chart.

    I'm seeing two groups of people posting MP Star Sabers on eBay. Most are $150, but some are closer to $100.
    What are the chances the ~$100 ones are KO?
    And if so, what would I expect from the KO, quality-wise?

    Not sure exactly what you're asking for, but here's the really simple breakdown...

    In my personal opinion, the MMC Predacons (Feral Rex) and the CW Constructicons are both basically in the Masterpiece scale realm. However, Feral Rex is just not nearly as big in combined mode as CW Devastator.

    So it depends on what your priorities are... if you're mainly looking for Predacons to display as Predaking, I'd go for the JinBao oversized KO MMC Feral Rex set. That way you'll have a decent-sized Predaking to stand next to CW Devastator.

    By most accounts, the regular-sized KO MMC Predacons are rather shabby. Cheap but not great quality, and a lot of simplification in the design. Probably best to skip them, unless you're just looking for a display piece that won't be handled.

    The oversized JinBao MMC Predacons are very nice quality, but they have sort of enlarged heads for some reason, which makes them look a little bit funny in bot modes.
