Red face DANGER OF BECOMING A CLOVER FANBOY AVERTED

Seriously, would you look at that thing's arms? They're down by his bloody ankles. He doesn't even have elbows to de-emphasise them. Even being 90% diecast and weighing three metric tonnes can't save that. And he's got a nose... Gundams have noses? At the same time as a faceplate? Argh.

Plus side is Dinky Dynaman's mildly ace, despite having the most half-arsed transformation ever.

Whew! I thought Cliffy had come over all unnecessary and was talking about the spreadable buttery stuff.

This is much more... normal...

What the hell is that? It looks like a crappy KO!
 

No longer looking for RID Dreadwind, but I still need Smokejumper. I'm also in need of Mammoth Nemesis Prime's tail piece, as my figure lacks it. Send me a PM.

The same thing went through my mind along with ''Can butter be counted as another toyline''

Because KOs use a lot of diecast. Seriously, do you feel the need to flag what a spastic you are to everyone?

Gave the thing a second chance and picked up one of the variants with a more Anime-accurate colour scheme. Not sure if it's the more interesting colours or just lowered expectations, but I liked it rather more... Only problem is now I'm hankering for one of the Deluxe versions, and they start at ~150...
