    Yeah, except for the limited articulation, but then again, if it's for kids, they won't care.

    Supposed to have another set coming based on the remaining 6 Chinese Zodiac animals:

    Funnily enough I picked up one of these just yesterday at my local TK Maxx for £6.99!


    Knee joints confirmed already but I will post a couple of pics once I open him up. ;)

    So I've just popped this guy open - love the colours/deco on this guy, reminds me of something.
    He's all plastic unlike the previous KO Starscream which has a metal chest. The moulds are different but very similar - I think it was confirmed these are a mixture of the Cyber Battalion and the Thrilling 30 moulds.
    Articulation is good, if a little loose but fixable. The wings can be folded back unlike the older KO, which is a nice touch.
    Just checked, the weapons/hand holes are 5mm, so compatible with official robits. ;)

    Awesome! These look fun! Now I just need a place where I can find them! :tongue: 

    NEAT! :D 

    They looks simple, but also just inventive and fun enough. I dig it.

    I’m in the market for a KO MP 29 Shockwave. What’s a fair price? Any suggestions?

    WITHNESS, BROTHERS!!!
    I haven't found any information on this. It seems like it is unique to Balashikha.

    After a few attempts on eBay and just getting scammed, I ponied up the extra $8 or so and ordered from Ali. In August of 2020 I got one for $45 with the box, closer to $50 after shipping.
    That said, it looks like the price has creeped up a bit in the last year - Looking back at the link from my order, it's now over $100 without the box, from the same seller.

    This is the cheapest I saw after a quick search - $57 and free shipping, seller looks OK.

    This one looks good too - $58 and lots of orders, recent reviews and pics. I'd try this one.

    Are these Voyager size?

    The turquoise one really reminds me of Leozack.

    Definitely seems like someone was referencing Leozack for that one. :) 

    Yeah, they're roughly Voyager sized (actually probably bigger than many current Voyagers)

    Didn't they already KO the T30 Jetfire?

    一个老粉被KO货 坑倒在 IDW 领袖 天火上了 冤不冤?|变形金刚综合讨论区 - AC模玩网

    Bought it from Taobao 2 years ago, exact copy down to the packaging, but they don't call it a KO.

    At least I think mine's a KO, based on the price and small quality issues.

    They were selling the Japan version (non-chrome accessories) for 100 yuan / 15 USD, and the US version (chrome accessories) for 120 yuan / 19 USD, before shipping.

    Don't see it now though.

    Update: after surveying CollectionDX, I've found 3 similarly cheap, off brand, barely painted pseudo-Gundams. But my pseudo-Gundam is still unique. Gotta buy it, for it costs less than a dollar, and paint it in the colors of RX-78-2, as I have some ZVEZDA military model paints.

    I saw TFC Devy's KO, which I haven't seen before on Sirtoys. Will this satisfy both G1 and Bayverse fans? :lol
