    These guys are putting quite a bit of thought into their work.

    The fire set will have Laserbeak. The red plate on orange plastic is a very nice color match.

    The ice set will have Buzzsaw. The gold plate on blue looks fantastic.

    On all sets, be sure to watch the weapon color. Some will have chrome, others will be gold. The gold sets always have metal toes and back plates. The chrome ones are a mixed batch. Some with plastic bits, some without.

    Rest assured that these KO's are of the highest quality.

    When ordering overseas, be sure to note that the cards never come in perfect. They're often warped or crushed.

    When ordering in the US, go with seller "Spirit-of-Cybertron" ... his stuff is usually in MUCH better shape than the direct from China batch.

    There's another seller, "LostAngel52r" (or something close to that) ... he fronts an address in "Westmont, IL" ... but always ships from China. His stuff comes constantly wrecked with figures loose in paper envelopes.

    They look really cool, but too damn expensive for tiny KOs (even really cool ones)

    Sounds like Pokemon games!

    The blue ones look a little nicer in my opinion.

    The blue one looks amazing. It's the first one of these KOs that's tempting me.

    The orange one OTOH looks delicious. Yes, delicious.
