Transformers KO Reflector

Here's one of the best knock offs around, the Reflector knock off, transformations and mold is identical to the original, the only difference is the lack of diecast and colours.
The bad new of this set is the crappy stickers it came with and the joints, pegs and peg holes needs some filing down to fit better but all in all, it's a great representation of the original reflector set.

Highly recommended set if you cant find the original Reflector or just love to have another wierdly coloured version or just a transformer fan, these sets go cheap and found them at the night bazaars with all the other wierd knock offs.

Power ranger Megaforce Gosei Great Megazord

Based of the Goseigers mechs, Power Ranger Megaforce Gosei Great Megazord is the adaptation of the Japan's Gosei Great.
Currently not released in Singapore, the Megaforce line will be due to be release in May 2013, I got mine through a good friend on Instagram.
I'm not going to do a review on the zords or the combined megazord but this time, I will talk more on the pros and cons of the American release version of Gosei great and the mods that will make the figure better.
First up the Red Dragon Mechazord, the paintwork on the American release is definitely inferior to the Japan released. So painting and adding details will make your set alot cooler.
The rest of the mechazords are lacking details too, here's a pic of the shark, phoenix, snake and sabretooth tiger.

The megazord's head is lacking quite a number of details too, inked in details on the face and added eyeliner on the eyes to make the eyes pop more.

Black washed the crest piece and belt piece to make it look more metalic.

Detailed the tail with silver sharpy and yes i don't have a gold one. The next thing to mod is the flimsy shaky connector joint pieces on the waist and shoulders.
The bad news is it takes abit of work, like dismantling the red dragon mechazord and layering out a few coats of nail polish on the connector pieces.

After all the mods, you have yourself a better Gosei Great Megazord, though not as good as the Japan version, this set is a Gosei great alternative. Price point is alot cheaper and lacks quite a number of detailed paint work with a quite a huge size difference. The zord bulder ports also allows for interaction with all Samurai zords for more play value.
