Beast Wars MPs are now being KO'd

I found it quite interesting how the Beast Wars MPs were not being KO'd. Well, that is no longer the case, first up is Dinobot: https://tf-direct.com/nb-masterpiece-mp-41-p2766.html

Well, that is a reasonable price. Looks like I may just add Dinobot back to the collection! :D

The only surprise to me is how long this took. ;)
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

Ok, so bad (or good?) news. The only Beast Wars MP to be KO'd so far is complete garbage. It's still not cheap, but obviously cheaper than the original. However, it seems any price is still too much for this release. here is a quick review with pics:

So got mine in today. Appears to have all the parts and I was able to get his ribs to tab together kinda okay. I haven't had a chance to transform all of him yet, but I tried transforming his tail first. It seemed fine and tight, but that one joint that was annoying on the official was just as annoying on the KO. And actually they didn't push in the pins all the way on that joint, so when I pushed it up through the hole, the pin that was slightly out shredded the plastic and now the tail is loose/****. I highly suggest you guys take a center punch to those pins and make sure they're in all the way before trying to transform the tail

Here's a pic showing the damage. The plastic is so thin there that the pins shred through the entire support on that side. The second pic shows how far out the pins are in mine.

This doesn't strike me as being in the same vein as the "Takasa Tony" category of G1 MP KOs. Those, I thought, were supposed to come from the same source as the real ones. The pics/description of this figure almost suggest that it's not even the same kind of plastic.

My theory about Takasa Tony MP KOs has been that they'll sell the more popular ones (I've mever been able to find a Red Bumble KO); given that the BW MPs are relatively new, it may take some time before they show up as decent-quality KOs.

OK? ;)

I’m hoping WeiJang does something with them. Or the company that fixed all of MPM Prime’s problems.
