    Can anyone confirm whether this Cyber Battalion seeker KO has knees or not?

    Pictures of these were shared here a few months back, but I don't remember. It's annoying because the molding on Cyber Battalion Starscream is designed to LOOK like he has knee joints, even when he doesn't.

    I'd like to know too, since these looked sort of neat. Of course, I haven't seen them for sale anywhere. :(

    Yeah, there's a depth to the detailing lines around the knee area that makes it impossible to judge by eye.

    IN my honest opinion, the knee seems molded together, no knee joint. That's what it LOOKs like. The entire below the knee section is hollow where the joint would be reinforced.

    Unlike the original mold, knee articulation has been added. :)

    Anyone bought this Zodiac animal combiner?

    Wondering how's the plastic, seems alright.

    Thinking of Xmas gifts for kids. Looks fun.

    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. ;)

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

    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)
