    I was thinking of picing together some of the G1 Combiners, and I was wondering If the KO biglots parts could be used with the G1 bots proper. and ethicly speaking is it OK to use these parts until I get the real deals?

    They don't. I have a KO Defensor and Menasor and the KO's are actually a touch larger, in Defensor and Menasors case, to make them not fit. Not a huge size difference, just enough to make them incompatible.

    The KO Superion is actually smaller.

    Touching on the ethics question, no problem using those parts as subs for the real thing unless you sell them. If you're selling, it would be good manners to tell your prospective buyers which parts are originals and which parts are KOs.

    ^^ Sol Fury is right. The toy doesn't care but a buyer might.
