also here are the details on the defensor box set.... the box itself is ko big time tooo glossy and instead of one of the tech specs saying defensor it says Befensor !!! okay!! like wtf !!! now the hotspot careful on some sites .. hot spot is one to figure out easily the top on its later there are two metal screw .. round ones are the ko's big time .. he suppose to have the flat top screw not rounded , first aid was an issue you can tell the windows in the back part are differenmt the ko is larger then the original ! on the back windows plus no stickers .. you can get away from it with reprolables .. yet again i differ cause check this out >> noticed the difference from the holes in the back as well also the chest on the ko is alot brighter red the original is a b loddy red color watch out for that

A thought occurs. Reflector knockoffs are one of the only real ways to get him, especially new, because of his bungled U.S. release. He was in the cartoon from the beginning through to a cameo appearance in The Movie. But he wasn't sold in the U.S. until the Movie came out, and then only as a mail-away. They didn't even change his deco to the Transformers colours. Poor Reflector. I say petition Hasbro for a mass-retail reissue. In cartoon colours.

I think we would be more lucky if the petition was for Zhong Jin (the high quality KOs company) instead .

Optimus Prime: Great... but how are we gonna explain to capellamusic the hole on his wall?
Megatron: Hmm... a free natural air conditioning system?

Hey guys!
I've knocked together a comparison with pictures for the KO Sunstreaker, this is an out of the box comparison as I know that has already been done.
Find it here: [Links are hidden for guests. Please Register.]



Hope this helps!

Nice little comparison there. I noticed both your roofs have the black bit in. Did you add that your self? I noticed my KO did not come with that and I had to add the black in my self using stick on monokote from model airplanes.

The KO should come with those factory stickers included. I have it and mine had them. It seems like yours came without them .

Strange, it came with most of the stickers. Like the red shoulder bit's.
