    Curious to know if anyone bought these and what are your thoughts?

    I’m considering getting the KO Defensor and if you have pics, please post some.

    I've got Skittles Blast Off. Like him very much. Guns are Dr. Wu. Couple of Skittles Arielbots on the way.

    I’ve considered a few of these as well. How’s the quality on them? More or less comparable to official? And these are not the oversized ones, right? Hard to keep them all straight sometimes....

    There seems to be varying levels of plastic quality depending on which ones you buy. The rainbow color ones are a slightly harder plastic than the officials. Harder, not stronger. I could easily crush some of them in my bare hand. For the price you really can't go wrong but don't expect super high quality.

    I want to get them but there are just too many things I want. I cherry pick & there's still too much crap on my want list.

    I have a couple of the older ones like Alpha Bravo, Groove, First Aid & Streetwise. The ones I have don't really line up properly in alt mode.

    Ah, okay, good to know... thanks! Yeah, I'm not a fan of that brittle, hard plastic. Thanks for the warning!

    I kinda want these... but I really don't have room and I know they would just end up in a storage bin for years

    It's not all of them, the Red Defensor is the worst. As long as you don't manhandle them they will probably be fine.

    Plastic same as CBB Devy?

    I'm guessing the upgrade kits fit these as well?

    Joining the thread here because I'm curious if anyone has purchased these off Ebay and if they have come with these KO Computron Feet shown in the photo:

    Ha! The red Defensor is the only one I have currently and my Groove was broken when I got him. The others aren’t broken but there’s some looseness and tolerance issues. I’m planning on getting the other two (skittles Superion and Bruticus) so hopefully they’re better.

    Anyone know if this guy's being sold on Ebay? I used to go the Aliexpress route, but I've had a few issues with their site.

    Hopefully kbb will consider making a Defensor in his g2 scheme! At the very least, a black Streetwise and a blue Blades could go with potp wreckgar, inferno and a regular first aid to make a pseudo version o_O

    I just got the KO Air Raid and Sky Dive for a project I had in mind. They're VERY tight - almost seems like they could hold up a Seacon limb as an arm. Tolerances are okay for the most part but Sky Dive's legs won't stay flush in jet mode. I have the same gap you see in the packaging photo. The plastic doesn't feel brittle but it's VERY hard - a lot harder than the originals. I planned on cutting them with an xacto knife but it's really slow going. Overall they're not as good as the originals, but a fairly decent substitute if needed.

    Oh, while we're wishing, CBB, it'd be lovely if you would hit the PotP molds any day now. Skittle-y beasts, maybe a Buster/Hydra deco, let's get some weird ass fembot colors, go!
