    from what ive heard (well...read): pretty cheap, but not so cheap as some KOs where it breaks if you look at it, great display piece, just dont play with it too much.

    If you look at them the wrong way they will fall apart. I have most of them and they all pretty much suck.

    They are display pieces at best, IF you walk very lightly around where they are standing, that is.

    Paint apps range from real bad to horrible most of the time, the faces can be unrecognizable(one of my combaticons was so bad you can't even see the face).

    Absolutely horrible pieces of crap. Touch them and they will break.

    They just don't have a good fit if you know what I mean. The mold degradation on the big-lot KOs is so bad that even transforming them can be very difficult. You could probably mod them but they need some work to bring them to an acceptable level first.

    I own a KO Defensor. Worth the 10 bucks I paid for him (would have paid 15 for the one I own). Holds pretty well, no loose joints apart from the head/ladder assembly. Individual robots are fine, crisp detail all around. The plastic is KO quality one, you have to be careful not to force things or they will break. Just take it slow.

    Keep in mind there are different versions, of different quality. My first Defensor was bad when compared to the one I have now. The one I have now came packaged in the combined mode. The first one came packaged as individual robots in alt modes.

    Lousy one (note the sticker color on the chest - yellow):

    I bought one for the $8 at big lots yesterday...the yellow devs.
    Quality is ok. I am going to mod the living hell out of it and paint it.
    I'm going to make it fully posable and weathered green.
    I would not use it as a play piece...but for modding and painting I could not pass up $8.
    If you yank the stickers and paint it i think you'll see a huge difference.

    $8 seems alright for the Devvy chestpiece and a good look at how Devastator combines, as reference for the "Ptitvastator" I'm making.
