    So to clarify, the improvement is just the paint?

    And "sealing." I'm assuming that means improved tabbing, but your guess is as good as mine.

    I think it's important to note that while Honey Badger comes with two chain whips, this guy has just one.

    I also can't tell if he has diecast or not...with his price tag, it would make sense that he does.

    Damn, $125 is a bit more than I expected as well.

    Yeah but the BMB MPM OS Prime was $100. I mean, I'm gonna buy this but it's just a little salty.

    Edit: Oh man, I was wrong. The BMB Prime was $80

    Not to be a smart as.... but just take the centimeter number and divide it by 2.54
    35/2.54 = 13.77 in

    Had a look at the movie renders, you're definitely right about those wings not being there. But given that they kinda fit with his aesthetic, I can let them pass, kinda treating them like Prime's jetpack.
    But honestly, they had no business interfering with the robot mode to perfect the vehicle mode- literally nobody can remember what exactly megatron's 2007 alt looked like. As long as it had thin pointy bits on the sides and a big pointy bit at the front it would be fine haha

    Ouch, I might just go with the cheapest...
    So we already have two Megatron KOs, one IS, right? And only an OS Ironhide and OS VW Bee? Hopefully we can get some same size KOs of them...

    Just to further muddy the waters, Black Mamba has also announced they're doing an OSKO MPM-8 (LS13?), due October. Evidently it's 36cm, designed to scale with LS03 (MPM Prime) and LS06 (SS Megs). Also "retooled", whatever that exactly means in this case. I guess we'll know in a couple weeks.
