There was a Toy Fair in Shenzhen last month. I didn't go. Did anyone go and take pics of everything that transforms and put it online like I used to do?

Here is a recent video from a Thai YouTuber, who reviews garish, nightmare-fueled KO TFs from yesteryear. Let us never forget our KO roots, brothers and sisters!

Welcome to TF hell, Double-dealer...

I opened it and assembled the combiner. Windrazor is probably the worst victim of cheapening, but Rippersnapper's head doesn't pop off, which is something every single official version of that mold suffers from. Joints are kinda loose, but pegs are solid. And yes, the legs are "wrong" but I'm not entirely sure the correct transformation is possible with these upsized toolings. The weapons are held via cross-shaped pegs with holes that go onto tiny palm pegs very badly.

Worth $10? Yeah, I'd say so. 8" (20cm) tall.

Upcoming OSKO SS86 Sharktikon Gnaw and BB film Ratchet.



There seems to be a design flaw in Ratchet's alt mode, so the vehicle side panels won't sit flush, but if this sells cheaply at ShowZ, I might get it.

Some comparison pics below.

Order Ratchet here:

I would love all of the BB film bots as slightly larger and better painted products. I also missed out on the USKO Sharkies, so I might get an OSKO one to bulk up my Sharky/Quint ranks...

This is kind of neat. All the new paint apps are nice, but it's a shame the side windows became stickers. Also, to go to all the trouble of upsizing without fixing the side panels is strange.

What do you mean and the side windows? The black bits?

The poor tabbing on the sides isn't great but it doesn't seem to impede the alt mode though. They also remolded the bit above too fill in the gaps. I hope that I can fix the clearance to get it to tab in for alt mode when I get mine. It's weird because I didn't even look twice at the original, but the larger version just has this presence that really caught my eye and now I'm looking forward even to a possible Arcee (providing they do something about hiding her hands in alt mode, other than just holding her guns).

Oh I see, there are paint app details on the translucent blue side windows to either side of the main front windshield. I thought they'd painted them over changed it to a sticker.

But yeah, maybe the van sides can be fixed but I always consider the inability to peg together to be an impediment to the alt mode, because it's so obviously wrong.
