    Looks nice and gigantic.

    Ben mentioned in his most recent video that he could use the MPP10 trailer - do you have one lying around that you can take a pic with? Or at least take a picture of the trailer hitch?

    Missed opportunity here...they couldve done some leg work and a couple of bits to truly elevate the mold

    Haven't dropped in in a while but this looks like good news!

    So, we're looking at:
    • a 1:1 KO (Aoyi)
    • an OSKO that scales with MPP-10 (WJ)
    • a heavily modded KO (unknown size and manufacturer?)

    Lastly. you guys are saying WJ dropped the ball on this because there were no improvements made?

    There are improvements. Nothing drastic, just simple ones like opening hands, light up eyes, matrix, calf stays together.

    It's huge! Love the rubber tires as usual, from Wei Jiang.

    I'm think I'm gonna pass. If it's only oversized without improvements, then I have de SS.

    You can swap out the hands for semi-articulated ones, they've added ratchets in several places, the leg panels stay tabbed in. Check out my post on page 4.

    These aren't improvements, just addons. An improvement is for example a new engineering, new transformation design, changes on the modeling / sculpt, etc.

    I mean, that's clearly YOUR definition of improvement. Not sure how anyone could infer all that from your post.

    I did mention there were no drastic changes, which is true. It actually has a lot of minor improv...updates, which individually may not be too impressive, but add up to give him a nice finish.

    I thought this was the OSd version with changes (movie feet, less back and forearm kibble)
    Edit: found the other thread

    He is nice. Some strange choices in things but, well worth the money.

    1. The shoulder swivels are so tight, im scared he will break.

    2. The way the gun pegs in is bad. He has MP hands but, holds his gun like a mainline.

    3. Black hands.

    4. Some parts on his stomach shouldve been painted red, not black.
