    That's not exactly a contradiction, smog is saying that some people want voyager seekers because of their collections, but he doesn't think he'd be happy with scaled down mp seeker molds since they could be finnicky

    The Devastator is really cool, I still have to sell off my extras. I do want that Bruticus, too.

    Well, what people are saying is that they want a voyager-sized G1-style Ironhide... that's another item that we've been missing for a very looooong time.

    And the Weijiang version fixes the generally acknowledged kibble issues of the MP, so that offers an obvious model to follow. So it's basically the same story as the Seekers... something Generations collectors have been hoping to see, that Hasbro has not provided. While we're on the topic, I'll add Trailbreaker and Hoist to that list too! Those guys need to be a bit beefier than deluxes. :wink: 

    Hell, I'm in the camp that finds MP Ironhide looks too big next to MP car-bots anyway, so having even just a slightly smaller option would also please me.

    Yeah, I didn't really pick up on that.

    Yeah, that's why I suggested that the oversized set might be cool if you mainly wanted an impressive-looking Predaking in combined mode for your MP shelf... but individually, they are probably too big.

    Just made my biggest SirToys order yet! Mind you, some of this order is for some kids, but still, it's big (around 300 dollars.. )

    The good thing is that you get a LOT of toys for your money...

    Careful about 3P for kids. Remember China KO's are often not up to us safety standards. (remember the lead paint thing a few years ago)

    Cheers, chum! I actually mentioned that myself a while back. Ages ago, during G1, the UK was inundated with cheap Mexican G1 toys that were official, but didn't meet UK safety levels for lead in the paint.

    Anyway, the kids are 10 and 15 years old, so there's no real danger of them sucking them to an early, mentally disabled grave. I've even warned their mum about it and she's fine.

    BTW, I was discussing the possibilities of possible OSKO stickers with Reprolabels (I think I mentioned it on the OSKO Headmasters thread), as I wanted some OSKO sets for the OSKO Headmasters. Here's my reply to them (as they originally said "no"). I also mentioned/tied this in to possible bespoke/custom sticker orders, if this was possible. Excuse the swypos'

    How does this KO scale with MP-10V?

    fairly close. i like d01 for what he is and for what i paid. i rarely rock his crown though.

    a few grams heavier, a little larger to tower a mp 10v a little, better hands and better articulation in areas (hshoulders, elbows and added ratchet to hips), he'd be a real winner. but i only paid 17.99 USD i think and its worth every penny of that.

    The only reason I post ones like this is because I'm purposefully trying to burn out your retinas.

    I'm sure a few of you have been suspecting this for a while now.
