    I'll stick to loose/complete GENUINE TFs for the same price, I think.

    And what's with KOing Red Alert and Sideswipe? These guys are as common as muck. What's next? Top Spin and Twin Twist!?!?

    I want that defensor set! Bet it's going to be as much or more than a real one though :( . With the prices of KOs these days.

    I feel real dumb for asking, but I'm kinda new to the KO's. How do you spot a KO from an original?

    Every KO released has differences unique to it. There isn't one standard for all of them. Some of the members here are nice enough to post pictures and descriptions for the differences between KOs and the real deal.

    I hope the KO makers get to makeing them in G2 or Shattered Glass recolors quickly.

    BTW - We still need white and red Constructicons.

    Given how rare Defensor giftsets are, a sudden influx of new, mint packs shouldn't be too hard to spot.

    Red Alert and Sideswipe will be trickier.

    THIS! I don't care nearly as much about the KOs since my sets have been complete for ages, but I'd buy recolors in a heartbeat :)

    Well red alert is missing the door badges. Sideswipe is missing a completed grid section on the front to the right of the word sideswipe. The graphic is also way too dark and the gray border is cut too close to his arm. The defensor box looks like a pile o shit and i can't look at it anymore. More crap. suck it KIDI toys.

    Unless the packages have disctinct differences from the authentic, G1 versions, I can scratch these off my 'To get MIB/MISB' list. The thought of having a fake item in my collection troubles me.

    Heh, I like how they disguise the news post as "warning collectors", when they're obviously promoting and encouraging the KO makers.

    How much will the Defensor set run? I've seen it for $110 + shipping in the junkion, but that's just robbery for a KO.

    EDIT: N/M, $100 shipped - I'll have to think about it, still seems high. No loose price? I could care less about the box.

    I could really go for a Defensor or Mensaor set. Anybody have these yet or are able to discuss the quality? Also, a Sideswipe/Red Alert ko is kinda dumb given that they have been reissued multiple times in Japan, and even here in the States.

    Glad to finally find a dependable source for these KOs.. I have a extenvise original G1 collection both loose and MIB but these guys are great to have just to have a nicer/cleaner version and I use the weapons from the KO to help complete the originals I have when they fit.
