    I would say no. I have that exact set, and I think I paid $10 total for it. $24 is robbery.

    That exact set @ Pacific Mall here is $12 CDN, so about $10-11 USD

    The quality is middle of the road. Plastic is ok, but the fit and the sloppy assembly bring it down a lot. The stickers fall off it you look at them wrong.

    I agree with MMM. I had that set and sold it a while back when I cleaned out my collection. Not worth the $12 I paid, let alone $24.

    Frag. Oh well, it's cheaper than the originals. There's been a lack of G1 KOs in my area lately, so I went for it.

    So people who have it, how's the quality? Better or worse than the Motormaster KO?

    No.

    The quality is pretty crappy.

    $10-$15 is pushing it for KOs like this.

    IMHO the Motormaster that comes in the Stunticon set is the best of these combiner knockoffs. Very close in quality to the original. Everything else in the line that I've bought (rest of the Stunticon set, the Defensor, the Battle Gaia, the Superion, the Constructions and the Raiden) is pretty meh. This particular set is worth exactly the $5 or $6 they're supposed to retail for. Definitely not worth more than that. It might be a little better if Blitzwing had some die cast...

    You can find all of those sets in L.A. Chinatown for $5-7. They are okay for that price.

    The one to look for is the G1 Constructicon KO that is about 75% of original size. No diecast, but the thing is damn good for the price. A bit flimsy in a couple parts, but it actually stays together better than the original Devastator. Detail is good, makes for a good display piece. Stickers suck (like all KOs).

    It would of been a steal if If the Price was $2 and the shipping was $10.00.

    It's Blitzwing, Broadside, and two Japanese Landcross team members.

    What a combo, two triple changers with two Landcross members. Yeah no more than $5.00 for that set.

    That's the Motormaster, alright. It's really good- it has the mini-car launcher that the original doesn't. I don't have any original stunticons or the Abominus set, however.

    Cool, I'll be getting that set then. If I remember correctly, a few years back a fellow forum member bought that set and used two original stunticon to replace the technobots.
