Correct, Black Mamba's products use the LS model numbers and are oversized
The OSKO is also more in line with his previous incarnations, size-wise.
Really tempted on the osko magnus now
Was gonna wait for kingdom magnus (mainly for the alt mode and new head) but the ko just looks so good..
Maybe if they repaint it I’ll get one
Yes, the BPF OSKO Siege Ultra Magnus retains all the same 5mm and 3mm ports compatibility from the original Siege figure...
Here's BPF Magnus's inner bot wielding the original HasTak Siege Megatron's weapons (The 5mm ports do feels a tiny bit loose on my copy, but it's possible to arm up this figure with whatever 5mm compactible weapons you got lying around just straight OOB):
The 3mm "impact pegs" are also retained (With no change in peg sizes like most OSKOs), allowing your typical Siege/Earthrise effect pieces to be mounted on these hardpoints on the figure itself to simulate being 'shot' or on the back of vehicles to simulate "rocket boosters" or "speed":
If you could get one for a good price, I say it's worth buying. For an OSKO, BPF OSKO Magnus is actually a very good toy that even slightly improves on the original figure in some aspects.
I'll say, however, buy with caution as I do hear that there are a few QC issue reports of some copies have the shoulders break off even just straight OOB; Those may possibly be isolated cases so if you could get one with no breakage straight OOB and handle the toy carefully, it's a good buy.
I really appreciate the 5mm compatibility on the BPF OS KOs. I like that Wei Jiang had attempted it with some of theirs. If these companies manage to continue doing OS Generations figures going forward I hope they’ll retain that compatibility.
Indeed, since they dont want for whatever reasons to do the weaponisers and modulators, at least keeping the pegs as is, is a great boost, so to speak.
Aside from the wfc figure, what yellow optimus figures are there?
I don't even remember wfc has yellow optimus?
The only yellow optimus' I can think of are the old RID01 repaints (both the leader and spychanger)
The yellow Optimus was also repurposed by Takara as one of several "coloured" Convoys:
- Optimus Prime (Universe) - Transformers Wiki
She kicks @rse.
Not a yellow Optimus per se. but there is the "Shining" Ultra Magnus reissue from 2001
Ah, good ol' Piss Magnus!
piss magnus needs to drink more water
Indeed, otherwise he'll get stones. (I speak from painful experience.)
'Til All Go Number One!
(So my 100th post on this site is a toilet joke. What a milestone.)
Oh, c'mon. It's not a pissing contest!
Wheres our osko siege piss magnus
Its all we need
Please cease with all this pith and nonsense.
It's getting Christmasy again and that is the time of the year when even shops primarily selling groceries come up with delicious KO's!
Behold oversized chromed WfC OP-wannabe Combaticons! (found in Kaufland in all of places)
It makes you wonder...They KOed G1 prime in every conceivable colour but they did nothing for a diaclone Magnus....
