    There is no dinobot figure that could stand in for the masterpiece :D  I paid a little over €35 for him But the only reason I actually got him was because I missed out on the 3D printed version (which was higher in price, and plain white) so I would’ve ending up painting that version anyhow. I’d like to make his beast mode pop along with the shoulders and head :)  but I can see where you are coming from. Thanks :p

    Not a problem :)  as far as kos go I’d say this one is decent quality, maybe a little lower quality than the ko botcon devcon/platinum sweep (which feels like an official figure quality wise to me) but better than the old $10-$20 hexatrons

    Just got two deliveries from both Sirtoys, and Robotoys (Australian site, but the owner lives in Japan). I got Clonedroid Blackshot, OSKO Blackjack (replacing the one that broke), Lost Planet KO Dia Battles (?) From Sirtoys, while the OSKO Reximus Prime (which is pretty rare these days?) was from Robotoys.

    Better pics later, tomorrow morning (Japan time).

    Huh. Well, they're all listed having metal parts, which, AFAIK, the originals didn't have. Especially puzzled about the Ratchet.

    Why do I have a feeling that I saw this specific Cyber Battalion Starscream a few days ago, in a local shop in Greece?

    Yeah for me too. I can understand it though, I guess.

    Most likely due to not POL their orders... If I only ordered 1 or 2 items at a time and shipped, it'd be expensive for me as well.

    Sending a good POL also increases the chance of custom charges. The bigger it is the harder to ignore. And not a big fan of paying for it twice
