    These look great. Anybody know where I can buy these? and for how much?
    Also, for the K/Os do the "nosecones" fold back?
    Thanks,

    Hm, those would make good kitbash fodder. RM Sunstorm anyone?

    I think so, I just saw it for the first time a few days ago. Not sure if I really want to get one since I have the real thing, but it does look pretty damn cool.

    see, here's my problem. I don't see how informing people of Knockoffs and showing pictures that results in people wanting to buy these illegal products is any better than people showing scans from the collectors magazine.

    It's different becuase Hasbro and the club have asked that people not scan the collector's magazine. They have no official stance in regards to the KOs. Also it is a way of informing people that there are KOs of sought after figures, so they don't buy these thinking they are real. If people want them after seeing them, that's not the posters fault.

    No thanks, I have the Takara products. If I see come cool Sunstorm customs made from these, or a Sunstorm knockoff or even better, a Takara product, I would definitely buy one.

    I don't see how informing people that knock off's are out there is a bad thing in any way. If it prevents even a few people from being duped into buying these things thinking they're official toys then I've done my job. This has ZERO to do with not allowing scans of certain magazines.

    That Mini Liokaiser is a nice idea, but let down by the "new member". That missile truck really wrecks it for me. If only it'd been a helicopter...
    Those RM Seeker KOs are cool, but I have the originals, so no thanks.

    I don't usually collect KO's unless they are made well at a different size like the JR. DX versions. :peoples:  I'm very happy with the Robotmasters Skywarp & Thundercrack. The set even came with a small Decepticon pin. :D

    My original two-pack I got from BBTS already feels like KO's, so I can imagine the quality of these.

    They're ok, but the plastic is lighter and feels cheaper than any of my other Takara TF's and the joints are loose.

    All of the new mold Robotmasters feel the same way. I like the idea, but the plastic feels cheap on all of these.
