    They're excellent figures IMO. Niceley detailed and fairly well articulated. Plus, they combine.
    A word of warning, though - Starsaber's sword handle is a VERY tight fit in his hand. I've heard of it snapping off when trying to remove it again. Curiously, the eHobby version I used to have didn't have that problem at all.

    I highly recommend getting it. It's an awesome toy. Draven is right though, don't push the sword into the hand too far, or it'll break off when you try to take it out.

    Its a very accurate small scaled version of the old Japanese releases. There is swivel waist swivel on Star Saber that the original guy didnt have, overall a very nice a figure!

    love it, but i'll also comment on the sword handle, i ended up drilling out the fist a little to save it from breaking again

    I got them, KOs, but i still think they are excellent figures. Really, they dont have too much difference with the originals, i checked before buying them.
    They are really excellent combo, nice articulation and the combined form kicks so much ass! You wont regret buying the RM heroes. ^^

    They are good figures. Articulation is limited but not to the point of being a brick. They're fun, nifty figures which I recommend getting.

    Buy them. They are excellent quality and an excellent representation of the original figures for a fraction of the cost.

    great figures and a much cheaper alternative than trying to get your mitts on the original version.

    Pretty cool set of figures. Of note is that the indivual pack and twin pack are different. The twin pack has more metallic look than the individual packs.

    I sold mine so that is not much of a good feedback...I liked Star Saber, very nice looking and the sword was nice. For some reason I didn't like Leo, and I bought the two for him. Maybe the overall proportion put me off.

    one more question, does anyone have em in the box? If so, can you post a pick? I came across a pretty cheap set and was wondering if I am buying a KO version of this set.

    Easy pass. Get Lio Convoy from the RM line instead, all 3 versions if you can.

    Quick comparison pic:

    Robot Masters version second from left.

    Have to echo the comment that it may be oddly proportioned, but that is actually sort of anime accurate. Big Brother is a bit chunky.

    Star Saber has the best articulation of the two. It's the only smaller version of Saber which actually combines with Leo and they combine in roughly the same way as the original.

    To clarify on the whole sword thing - don't push it in to the point where the plastic is textured and you should be alright. Literally just put the very tip of the handle in the fist, that is the safest way to play with them to avoid breakage.

    Star Saber is a great little version of the big guy. Victory Leo is more of an add on than anything else, but he still manages to work out great.

    Recommended if you can find them at a decent price, not so much if they start getting too expensive, though.
