  1. Just got these oversized Perfect Effect Reflectors. Cheap and cheerful, but will make good MP Reflector custom fodder...




  2. i placed my first order last week with kotoys. i didn't receive any confirmation but have been charged on paypal. i've emailed them 3 times but no reply. is this normal? what should i do?

    I wouldn't panic just yet, I think Paypal is the only confirmation... I sometimes get a shipping notice later, sometimes the package just turns up at the door! Guess it depends who's doing the processing.

  3. My latest KOs...


    Oversized Classics seeker...


    ...and oversized G1 Dreadwind (comes with a Powermaster partner, although he doesn't transform into engine and there's no Powermaster unlocking feature)


    From www.kotoys.com

  4. Is Ghost Starscream's head painted gold...or is that a trick of the lighting???

    There are a couple of gold paint apps (inside the air vents, at the tips of the wings, and on the tops of his feet), but the head isn't painted. It's not gold, but compared to the original dark grey MPSS head it is definitely more bronze-tinted plastic.


    Overall I'm extremely pleased with this figure (like I said, I wouldn't normally buy clear TFs - I don't see the point - but this is one time there's a good reason for it). Swapped the orange vertical stand he came with for the standard clear one. Not a lot to report on in the packaging; just a black & white instruction booklet and character card. And standard MP3 SS sticker set.


    Appreciate that dude *nods*


    And thanks for the idea of chucking him with my MP figures :thumb


    Be interested to see your custom upgrade *nods*

    No probs, I'm sure you'll be happy with him. Oh, and he's much better sized against G1 Blaster too! :D

  6. Just won the Transformers Oversize Soundwave with Laserbeak & Ravage on ebay and i'm wondering if anybody here has got it because i'm curious to know what the quality of the plastic is like ?

    I've got him, he's actually very good for a KO. Best thing is he can display alongside MP seekers :love


    No real flaws, except mine seems to topple forward at the drop of a hat (he has plastic feet not metal like the original). A few paint app issues, like the eyes in the wrong place, but overall a really great buy (for the price). Comes with a very nice Laserbeak and a so-so Ravage (no foot articulation).


    I'm in the middle of a custom upgrade to give him the real MP treatment :win

  7. Here's my latest from www.kotoys... Supersized G1 Blitzwing!


    Your Blitzwing is one of these :) It's an old KO, I found them in a small store, they had 6 stashed in the attic, I bought them all, got the store dude to call his supplier, but no more. I gave them all to Mike.


    I probably got the last 6 available in China :)


    You sir are a God! :wave


    I've been trying to get one of these for ages, I even got Mike on it through the Toy Hunter service last year, but he couldn't help. The scale is really impressive, and Blitzwing is my fave triple-changer. Thanks dude!


    I'm hoping to paint him up G1 style. :D

  8. Ooh, oversize Kickback!! I got the oversize Bombshell & Shrapnel set in blue/white but I need a Kickback, is it from KOtoys, I can't see it on their site? And were the orange Insecticons separate or a set of 3?


    I used the KOToys Toy Hunter Service to get those :) Mike at KOToys can get anything on taobao also.


    yup, set of 3, pic of the package in my album, better to get the 3 pack anyway, better plastic and chrome parts,

    Thanks for that Paul, I've emailed Mike and he's gonna keep a look out for them for me :D


    In the meantime, I got me an oversized Dirt Boss;


    I don't have the real one for comparison, but I know for a fact that this is much much bigger!!


    And here's oversize Soundwave and Blitzwing;


    Laserbeak and the black Ravage (who has no ankle articulation) came with Soundwave. The green Rumble and red Ravage are similarly oversized; Rumble's head is backward but Ravage has all articulation intact.

  9. Got a big KOToys haul in the other day, here's a few of them,


    blue and orange Devastators to build my ko Devastator army,




    Oversize Insecticons with chrome parts and guns,




    Another undersized Sixshot (red), to build my ko Sixshot army,



    Ooh, oversize Kickback!! I got the oversize Bombshell & Shrapnel set in blue/white but I need a Kickback, is it from KOtoys, I can't see it on their site? And were the orange Insecticons separate or a set of 3?

  10. Frikkin' monsterific oversize G1 Doubledealer!



    Nice! Does it still transform into it's vulture(? It was a vulture, right?) mode?


    Yeah he does, and with a wingspan greater than the length of a MP seeker!! It's a pretty faithful reproduction of the original toy, even comes with Nebulan companions (but there's no 'unlock the transformation' buttons)...


  11. And so I happily bought some of those BT/Alt KO's at Kotoys.


    That was june the 16th.


    They were shipped with trackin number on June the 20th.


    After three weeks I mailed them because I still hadn't received anything and the tracking number had never yielded any information. TO which I only got a reply asking to which country they were sent.


    And after four weeks I mailed them again because I still hadn't received anything and the tracking number didn't do anything.


    And today it's five weeks and........still nothing. No KO's and no e-mail reply.



    So, I guess I'll have to make a Paypal claim about not receiving anything and hope I can find another place to buy the KO BT's I want (Red Smokescreen, White Sideswipe & gray flamed Sideswipe).




    You might still get them, I ordered from KOtoys and also from www.chimungmung.com on the same day, got the package from Chimungmung less than a week later but was waiting for another 2 weeks til the KOtoys stuff came...


    BTW KOtoys has a forum, you could try posting in there?

  12. I've been loving the oversize KOs, and since I have a huge collection of BT/Alts I couldn't resist these guys:

    Oversize Universe Sideswipe...



    Alt mode is a shade too small to pass for 1/24 scale, but bot mode fits in well. There are a couple of simplifications which affect him, such as the car front not extending and therefore falling too low on the body when in robot mode. Also the doors do not swivel around the wrists. I'm sure something can be done though.


    Oversize Ironhide...



    Now I'm not the biggest fan of Universe Ironhide, mainly due to the jigsaw-style of his alt mode, but this KO does go well with Alt scale. Again there are simplifications, noticeably the shoulders, and his heels were cast as a single block on the feet (not hinged like the original) making him almost unable to stand (I cut the heels off and they clip onto their corresponding pegs on his back). He's very loose-jointed but that's something I'm going to fix when I paint him up.

  13. Hey Breaker....here's the links to find them:



    wow dude thanks a bunch been looking around for KOs...


    BTW:what does zone prices meane? higher zone means higher qualityu?


    I just bought from them, it is slightly complicated... as you pick each item you choose a zone for shipping; zone 1 is Japan/Far East etc, zone 2 is USA, Canada etc, and so on. You then add a flat rate fee to the end of your order. Also you have an option of buying stuff sealed on card or specially unpacked which saves a bit on the cost (guess it allows for smaller packages).


    Hope that helps.
