Hm if Kubianbao make that Magnus in the Jinrai colours I'll probably get it.
Funny enough, I just bought the ko core magnus so my siege prime can have a more substantial ion cannon, but the stand alone figure loOKs so good, id probably get the ginrai version too. I don't even have ginrai or tr prime but I'm ok with that. I'd probably just use the cab for the potp trailer.
Does anyone have any experience with KO MPM-03 Bumblebees? I bought one for 35$ off of eBay, have t gotten it yet due to Chinese New Year closing their post offices, but I have no idea what KO it’s going to be. Figured I’d take the gamble, for that price it’s worth some shortfalls that I might be able to correct.
Also, any suggestions for an affordable but good quality KO of MPM prime? Or should I just bite the bullet on the legit one?
Brought the OS Hukie from Sirtoys, first time buying, just waiting for it to ship out.
If you're lucky, it may ship out before the Chinese New Year shutdown that happens every year around now. Good luck!
There's a notice at checkout on SirToys that shipping is already suspended.
Has anyone picked up these Foodformers?
Wondering what the quality is like, of the proper set, and not the knock off ones.
I got everything I ordered late last month stupidly quickly from China so I think they are rushing things to get them done before new year.
I hope my order got out in time. Haha... somehow my pile of loot always waits till late January, and then suddenly I need it RIGHT AWAY!
They changed the wheel placement on his shoulder to be accurate to film!
So is this OS at all or just a direct KO?
Straight copy by all accounts. 1:1 size, no simplifications, no improvements.
The price is a pretty big goddamned improvement.
Yep. Just waiting for them to announce the KO of the Ruination repaint. Didn't mind buying the actual IF Bruticus, but I can't bring myself to pay that much for the repaint.
Well, obviously yes, but I meant improvements in the way that Wei Jiang or Jinbao (or MechFansToys, I hear) make fixes to some of the flaws in the originals.
Just got mines in today. The right thigh ratchet is tight. So is the screw. Tried to loosen it up. But all in all, a Good purchase.
So far, Pocket Toys isn't known for making any changes.
Can someone tell me their favorite MP KO so I can plan my next purchase?
Here are my suggestions
Starscream (or any other seeker)
Ratchet (or Ironhide)
Also I got KO MP Shockwave! It took 12 days, but it was well worth the wait.
Shockwave is a hard MP KO to beat... it is definitively better than the original, for almost 1/3 the price.
With Megatron, there are several options. I'm very happy with THF Dynastron and the quality is excellent. I also like the optional toy-style face and the darker metallic finish. But I've heard that the Infinite Transformations version (a direct copy of the official) is the best overall quality out of the Megs KOs
The Ratchet/Ironhide MP KO are okay for the price. Decent quality, but definitely a bit cheaper-feeling than the originals. The panels need a little extra work to get them all into place.
I have the Inferno and Grapple customs. They're pretty great overall, but my Grapple has some loose tabs in his shoulders.
If it’s just a straight KO, I’ll pass. If it were an OS I could understand but it only exists to take money away from the original designer and company, so I’m good.
