    so, about the hands. i remember someone saying the ports are both different lenghts. first i thought that was wrong but i do believe thats how they should be.

    checked emgo's vid really quick and his hands are the same. the right hand port is longer then the left hand.

    so anyone here wants to check their hands? mine are also different

    Yes, they should be different, otherwise one side or the other won't peg in all the way.

    I would actually be marginally interested in the KO if they corrected some of Warbotron's color choices. Namely Blast-Off, Vortex, and Brawl.

    Which exact figures did Warbo KO out of interest?

    Oh I'm just saying that 3rd party figures are basically KOs in general because they are all unlicensed products.

    Ko and unlicenced aren't the same thing.

    Technically not. Intellectual Property infringement is a hell yeah but a KO is a direct copy of an already existing figure.

    Oh ok right on. Had my reasoning all skewed. What I was thinking for example the TFC Herc KO. It's not an exact copy but they still call it KO.

    I agree! And Whirlwind also. When I pick them up, I'm painting both red.

    I tried digging through the thread to answer my question, but no luck:

    Does anyone know what the approximate timeline for these guys at Captured Prey is?

    I'm patient, but it would be nice to have a window :)

    I emailed CP a few days ago. As of the 27th, that they were still waiting on Warbo. They have asked them for the invoice, but haven't heard anything back yet and were stuck waiting.

    Does the big gun tab together with the feet in some way?

    No, it's held on by gravity pretty well though.

    That's exactly what I was going for. Will be another three weeks or so before I get the rest of the team again, just had to figure out something with the kibble.

    I'd just be a bit careful doing them in metal; the piece that's breaking is the part that's supposed to flex. WSF in a metal base might be a better option (that way you have metal, not white plastic, showing on the sides of the feet)
