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.
??? There's no gap, you just have to transform him properly. (There's a tab on his front wheels that the side panels peg onto.)

Like I said, I don't even have him so I don't know - just going off the pictures where even the official version doesn't appear to quite tab together securely. There are plenty of figures out there that have tabs that just don't work quite right due to imperfect plastic tolerances. So if there is a flaw with the original and all they've done is upsized those parts, they've likely just increased the tolerance issues resulting in the pictures in this thread.

But, if it's just someone being lazy then that's cool.

Yeah, it took me a while to figure out how to properly get everything in place on that mold. Specifically, not until I was reviewing Ironhide did I discover I'd transformed Ratchet incorrectly.

Both videos of this figure have showed the same mistransformation. I've pre-ordered it so I'll let you all know (unless Ben's KOllectibles or Paul beats me to it with pics).

This is really 3P news, but a company that made large, fairly cheap Chinese military vehicle TF robots has just released a red recolor of a previous version for $20 MORE than the original.

Also, there seems to be a homage to Broadside, sans jet mode. Seems like a nice, chunky figure!

Knockoff Rescue Bots racer sets. An almost-on-model Blurr, and jet-mode Blades in Bumblebee colors. The autotransform works acceptably well.

I picked up the Triceratops/Blades set.

WARNING:

- The upcoming OSKO Ratchet now has pictures at the Sirtoys website showing serious QC issues with this figure. Apart from the side panels not tabbing in vehicle mode, the panels covering the backs of the lower legs and the entire waist joint seem to break very easily.

Edit: - Show Z just checked 3 of these figures and they stated they were fine.

Ben's got a review up:

-

Plus one of a KO 3P Soundwave:

Here are three reviews, featuring recently released OSKO SS Bayverse constructicons and their combined form:

The OSKO SS86 Sharkticons are now available to preorder from ShowZ:

- https://showzstore.com/4th-party-sm01-ss86-sharkticons-oversized-version-set-3_p4623.html

As is a KO of TF Prime Bulkhead (Takara Tomy version) :

- https://showzstore.com/4th-party-ac-01r-tfp-bulkhead-japan-version_p4522.html

Also, my "Shock Warrior" (by "Our Little Buddy"?) OSKO SS BB Ratchet just arrived and he's lovely. The Autobot symbol is a reprolabel and his gun's LED is so bright, it can illuminate the opposite wall of my room.

(The side panels have faction symbols on them, which were from an uncut sheet of faction stickers that came with ordered from ShowZ)

Btw, the side panels on mine can, with a bit of fiddling with the rear "shoulders" and other parts-massaging, clip in correctly. The only "hole" is then due to a part that was seemingly removed from the side panels for the OSKO version.

A new batch of OS Micromasters. I like the A10 with AWACS dish that transforms by standing up...Size comparison of the OS Sharkticons.

Nice pics! I missed the opportunity to get the undersized KO Sharkticon set so I'm still looking for them. Please PM me here Paul if you've got any spare (hopefully in their box?) and/or if you can accept credit cards via anything other than Paypall (as it's stopped working for me a while ago at your site).

In other news:

-
(Personally, I think even the KO is overpriced, but that's just me).

-
(Apparently, according to Ben, in the video above, there's a modded/alternate mold out with a KO 3P Superion head and the shoulder weapons/kibble have been removed. If anyone has links to the pics, please could they share them here?)

-
(Some sort of KO/3P Bayverse toys?)

-
(A rather slick KO MPM BB)

The OSKO Sharkies just arrived about an hour ago.

I added metallic red, green and purple details to the two bots that didn't get any details on them. I'm also adding additional paint details to the beast mode faces/heads and their flail weapons/tails (to give them some further differences/character).

Btw, here are two English reviews for the oversized SS86 Sharkticons:
