    Just bought 12 Gnaws, 4 Wreck-Gars and a couple of Slags. Psst, don’t tell @4249david

    I relented and bought Netflix Cheetor, Primal and Rat baby, 25% off isn’t too bad and I was eying them up and kidding myself that I wouldn’t crack!
    Also bought Draculus, why? I don’t know, something to do with wanting to spend more money on anything I suppose.

    I also saw reviews of a KO Revoltech Deadpool and Figuarts Rocket a while back and it was the same.

    We may live in an age where some Transformers KO's improve on official figures but elsewhere is still a case of not getting taken in by the lower price.

    It's OK if it's just accessories you want but the figures themselves are usually pish.

    Yeah i have a few KOs of these import figures, most have broke in some way but only one that make them unposeable

    Mafex (or was it SHF?) Wonder Woman just crumbled to bits, Figma Tracer and Mafex Spidey have one really loose hip ball joint that falls off when you move it...and both Yamaguchi Deadpool and Wolverine had a joint break but I was able to fix both.

    KOs usually look ok as long as you just want them for a decent pose...but to be fair originals can be a pain to pose as well

    As long as you know what to expect when buying them there is nothing wrong with getting a cheap figure

    Just like Star Wars is only 2 and a half good films out of 9, Ghostbusters is only one good film out of three. Don't @ me.

    (Indy is two and a half good films out of 4. Star Trek is 7 good films out of 13. Maybe. I haven't seen Beyond. Transformers is one and a half good films out of 6, although I'm tempted to make it -5 for the "Romeo and Juliet law" scene.)

    Oh sorry, I was winding David up.

    Of course, I will also let you have my PIN number too if you like?
    If I get any of those figures again I will let you know as I just don’t keep the packaging for any of them these days.

    The Ark is a complete missed opportunity, has QC issues in the shoulders and the middle of it's alt, and will be on sale in Argos after Xmas (no joke). I can't help you with Prime!

    Cheers bud! I assume new dinos and Junkions will also have the requisite Pit and Junk backgrounds, so Sludge and Wreck-Gar's buddy, although they're months away aren't they?

    it’s looking possibly likely.
    Especially given he’s on this official poll even though he’s not been announced:

    Just be wary, they put stuff in the sale that's actually months old POs. Even checking back weeks later the stuff still isn't in stock. They're still waiting on Galvatron as an example!

    It's worth buying KG for the accessory.

    Yes, I enquired about a pre-order recently but it took them about 4 days to respond. :)
