    anyone know if this is a normal reissue or if it's a bootleg? There's like no context here, and I was curious if anyone had news about this random rid 2001 magnus

    I have no input except that it has the tomy mfg imprint mfg number on the bottom. I don't know of any KOs that do that.

    So, I got the one on the left today from Ali Express, he's good, but I want more.pegs and ports to hold the modes together better and some better leg articulation.

    Still, for less than a deluxe, he's a great Valkyrie figure, can do all three forms. (Though gerwalk is a bit wobbly due to the legs not spreading out enough.)

    Interesting. Starting to sound like real copies then. Maybe leftover from the reissue

    Been seeing this Optimus primal knock off on AliExpress. If it just the original Ultra class Primal from Beast Wars recolored in Rise of the Beast colors?

    BW Primal in movie colours? I think I need to buy that for my collection: already have the original release, the Takara grey version, the burning version, the skeleton version, the Universe version, a prototype for the universe version and the 10th anniversary version.

    Was already considering getting a RotB primal and planned to look into the best option, but I think I might prefer this.

    It's a great figure, be gentle with the hips, they can break.

    Well, I'm no expert, so here's what I found
    https://a.aliexpress.com/_mNUvy2e
    https://a.aliexpress.com/_mq2UUSO

    If you're willing to splurge a few extra dollars, there's also mp bumblebee kos
    https://a.aliexpress.com/_mt5CqKq

    Ultimately they are all kos, so watch out for what you choose, and make sure to video review all of them before making a choice. They're all prone to breakages as kos in the end
