    To clear things up, there are currently only 3

    • Honeybadger, normal-sized KO
    • Model Wizard (aka WJ), OS
    • Aoyi Mech (aka Black mamba), OS with some retooling

    Not sure if you were still thinking of grabbing the MW Megatron, but Terry has it up for $65 on his site.

    If it was, I managed to somehow miss it completely. I've got zero memory of it being shown anywhere or being in the instructions. But my memory is more like a colander these days, so it's entirely possible.
    This thread here is the Wei Jiang one. It's being referenced as part of their Model Wizard division, yet features the EarthQuake name, so there's some corporate tomfoolery going on here for sure.

    got it. I'm guessing these 3P companies are doing this to evade HasTak's cracking down?

    Well I'll be damned... somehow managed to miss that part of Emgo's review.
    Still his newest listing!

    MW AKA WJ T-08 SHAKE SKY WING OS MPM8

    He actually doesn't have the BmB listed at all, yet.

    I'm in no hurry. I think one of the OS MPM 08s will work just fine for my Megs.

    In my headcanon, Megatron doesn't want to take any disgusting human based alt forms and proudly shows off his Cybertronian form instead.

    The Wei Jiang figure in those pictures just has his forearm painel down over his hands. Not sure why.

    Honey Badger's are just painted differently and made of harder plastic. Not sure about BMB's, but they look to be the same as the original; just painted better.

    What have people's experiences been with buying from Terry?

    WJ/MW Megatron looks really solid and sturdy with improved ratchets. Hoping the eyes show up better in person.

    A little disappointed they went with a rubbery mace chain though. Couldn't wait til Nov. for Black Mamba's but it will be interesting to see how they compare.

    I didn't even know there was an MPM-8 KO of anykind until I tripped over on on ebay yesterday - now I find out there is several of them.

    Oh well.

    Damn you, Weijiang... $65 for 14" in too good not to buy a Foilatron.

    Ordered via Terrance.

    Agreed. But if BMB drops their price to match I will probably end up with both.
