    Thank you for this

    May just track down the ko set because it’ll be cheaper than all the upgrades for Hasbro Bruticus

    I would recommend the Jinbao oversized Bruticus... all leader sized bots and better feeling that the original. Plus at 120-140 its a steal ;)

    I hope they'll upsize them to the size of the old size classes.
    With Hasbro having downsized the line they don't have to oversize them by that much anymore for the knock offs to be "different".

    I'm personally not too interested in the OS Siege figures since the regular ones are so good. But if the price is right, I may or may not splurge on a Magnus or Shockwave if those are ever released.

    They ARE good... except for the relatively small size of most of the figures, and the much higher MSRP.

    Some nice KO versions of these molds (especially bigger ones) would be great. I agree that Shockwave especially is a good candidate for the OS treatment... but most of the Deluxes too.

    Overscale Siege would be nice - I hope they know to put a pin in Starscream's chest. Six Gun would be nice too. It would be interesting if they'd thought to do what was done with over size Minicons sometime and make the connections still 5mm - I don't expect they will - but if they did that would make them so much more "useful" after all why would you want an overscale Six Gun that isn't compatible with Metroplex?.

    I'm guessing someone had some fun and it's a reference to this...

    But who knows really?

    will OS Six-Gun's part connect to the 5mm holes on the regular siege figure?

    It's like the Spinal Tap version of that reference, where someone wrote down 'a Starscream that looks like Optimus' and the reader did it entirely the wrong way around! :lol

    We don't know anything yet. Are we 100% positive that OS Sixgun is coming?

    I'm down for an oversized Sixgun. The official one is too small for Metroplex. I just hope they leave the pegs 5mm so he'll still connect.
