    Doesn't look promising, because in the thread for the BMB siege figures there's a pic of Siege Optimus with a ruler. And he's 23+ cm, which makes him the same size as MP-10, thus Masterpiece size. Likewise, deluxe Hound is apparently some 18 cm which makes it larger than an MP carbot.

    His name is Honey Badger (Ratel could have been better, but oh well).

    Ko Mpm-8 Megatron

    They've been discussing it for a little while here. I like the idea of the plastic parts instead of the rubber, and that paint looks wonderful. Undecided if I need one myself though, given I have an MPM-8, but it's certainly piqued my interest.

    I didn't see the image with the ruler. Darn... that's a bit redundant for me, since I already have MP10. If the pricing follows WJ's usual pattern, I'll probably end up buying them anyway, but I suspect that most of those Deluxes are a bit too big for my tastes.

    Sadly, I doubt they'll go that far. WJ has an annoying habit of upscaling just SOME of the characters in a line-up, and then just dropping the line...

    The OS Legends, OS RID, OS CW Stunticons... I think most of those were under the WJ umbrella, and they never really deliver a full set. :( 

    I'll be thrilled if we get guys like Flywheels(Skytread) or Springer, but I sort of doubt it...

    BMB and WJ are not related unless your dark-web-KO-insider-source says otherwise.

    As far as I can tell the only die cast parts are the upper parts of the dino heads.

    Wait, are the OS Siege figures BMB? I've already forgotten. :lol 

    I don't have any personal insider sources, but there were some conversations in passing when Black Mamba started releasing stuff, about connections between the various KO companies. Someone alluded to Black Mamba being related to WeiJiang (or possibly, Black Mamba being ex-WeiJiang people?). It was either on TFW, or on FB somewhere, or on a podcast.

    No idea if it's actually legit. I didn't subject it to rigorous fact-checking at the time - obviously, I didn't anticipate it would become the lynchpin for an internet dick-measuring contest 2 years later, otherwise I would have locked that shit down. :wink:
