    Those are pretty nice. I have the blue and original colors. They're a bit oversized, kind of in the middle of legends and deluxe. Here's the dedicated thread about them if you want more info:

    What @DrJest said. I got that one too. He is decent, I am using him as a stand in SG Powerglide, until I decide to paint the DX9 KO.

    I have the original PE Ginrai Prime version, and it's one of my all time favorite 3p toys.

    That's a pretty cool KO... didn't even know there were KO's of upgrade sets. I'd really like a KO of the X2 upgrade kit, I can't find that anywhere :(

    I have the Magnus also.

    He feels smallish as a stand-alone figure, but no complaints. I haven't removed him from CW Magnus for a while, but that functionality works pretty well too.

    I feel like standard MP KOs just kinda stopped? I know MP44 KO is teased but that makes sense considering what it is. What was the last MP KO before that? MP12+ and MP14+? I wasn't impressed at all by the MP39 KO and is the only KO I ended up selling to buy authentic. I think as official MP gets more complicated with more parts counts, the generic "NB - No Brand" KOs can't keep up, so I'd be surprised to see an actually good Bee v3 or Hound KO. MP44 seems more like 4P (as in a company is willing to put their name on it similar to the MP36 4P KO wars where they all made improvements). I'm not sure other MPs are going to get the attention anymore sadly :( 

    I do hope the Datsun and Wheeljack molds eventually get toon accurate KOs (I'd love an MP29+ KO), but I gave up hope and bought those used someplace else, haha. At this point I'm more interested in Siege/Earthrise OSKOs :)
