    I just removed those ratchets entirely. He stands just fine without them. I even (can't find it now) had a picture of him doing a high kick without the ratchets.

    So as these guys were originally being released I bought the first three. I sort of lost interest and was thinking about going back and picking up Onslaught and Vortex. How does this set hold up over time? Would I be better off using the $150 it would cost for picking up the rest of Warbotron on one of the new Bruticus sets coming out? I transformed the 3 figures i have into their limb modes today, just to make sure mine didn't have any issues. I originally was buying them as my masterpiece versions, but I booted them off the shelf when it got too full.

    Personally I wouldn't bother.

    Depends on what you want. I don't think Warbo is a bad set. However it's also not super G1, if that's what you're looking for.

    For not much more than you'd spend to get the two you're missing you could get the entire Jinbao version. Alternatively, you could get the UT Brawl and Swindle that look a lot more G1.

    As much as I agree with supporting the original companies, they've gotten their run out of WB-01. Get the Jinbao. Better set overall with a lot of fixes, only real issue with it is the scale, if that matters to you. Otherwise it is superior in every way and costs less than what you'd spend to complete yours.

    I sorta agree. Value wise the jb version kicks @ss. For less than the price of the 3 bots ud have to buy, you could get the whole set incl shipping.

    The jb set is pretty awesome and one ofy favs. However, I do find the plastic a bit glossy/waxy compared to the original which is more matte. I kind of like the finish on the original better, but it is a bit prone to stress marks.

    Both are good sets and I don't regret either purchase..

    yeah, i have the original.. I wish i would have waited.. i'd of gotten the KO.. not the Oversized one, or the weird colored one, but the one that looks exactly like the Warby one, scale and all..

    That's the simplified one. This is the wukong.. it's basically a warbo replica
    WuKong WK09-Onslaught

    Still..go with jinbao. I've had both, and sold warbo a while back.
