    Haven't personally had hands on that version, but I'd say it's safe to say that in regards to those emblems, what you see is what you'll get.

    Easy to cover with some decals or take off with a little alcohol (or even a Magic Eraser) if you don't want them.

    these are pure junk. Don't even try to transform them or they will break at the slightest bit of pressure applied.

    Yeah they are not worth the plastic their cast in. Their very floppy and the paint apps can range from ok to terrible. Save yourself the disappointment and spend a little extra for the original.

    That's an exageration - the inital Faith Leader one is junk the later ones in other colours are much better basically the later they are released the less flaws they have - I have heard of the odd missembled piece but overall to say they are terrible or KO quality isn't that fair.

    As for the Classics KO - the only reason they are floppy is they lack the ratchets the legit ones have - if it bothers you you can floor polish the joints or get some new ratchets on shapeways.

    I have several and the quality is a bit all over the place but They are fine to display if you don't want to pay for a Henkei one or want something cheap to put commander armour on.

    They won't take as much rough handling as the legit ones might but they are not going to fall apart unless you abuse them or try to transform the arm kibble the wrong way.

    The only real problems the KOLD like ones seem to have is a melted looking face, a lack of ratchets and sometimes the bumper does not fold up correctly in robot mode... this I find Odd as some of them work fine. and if you buy a clear one they do have weak spots where they can break.

    I like them but I didn't pay much for mine so I suppose that helps me having a high regard for them - they are not something you should be paying $50.00 for though.

    This. If you want one I have a broken one (windshields broke on the arm) I'll send you for shipping costs only. I just want $10 total for it.

    I think I have one of these. Mine isn't that bad so it may be hit or miss in quality. You might want to look around some more if you really want one because $18 plus shipping sounds like too much money. I got a KO black Prime for $18 shipped

    He's right. It IS possible to get a legit Classic Optimus on ebay for less than a body part - you will have to search and sift through the offers on there

    Just be careful of those seekers as well. KO's are not ones to transform heavily. I just got a clear KO Ghost Starscream and both of his arms snapped right off. Save your pennies and buy legit shit.

    That is also where I got my KO Primes and a KO Classics Mirage. Mirage was broken in the package. They are garbage. I really don't want to burden them onto someone else, I'm sorry I even offered, haha.

    Good luck!

    He had good reviews and one is from daelite20. I don't plan to transform them either so hopefully they come over fine. Looks like hit or miss on YouTube reviews on them

    If they are the CHMS seekers, they are ok. Some tabbing issues and floppiness that can always be fixed. I haven't had one of thee break on me yet. I have them all but the clear ones.

    I actually love the seekers that CHMS offered.
