    These look really good but it's also nice to already have the Takara ones so don't need em.
    Even though if I saw them on the shelf *swipe swipe swipe!!

    The Robotmaster versions are excellent if you buy them for dispaying purposes, but if you buy them for playing , their lack of solidness may feel awkward in your hands.
    Eyes closed they 'd probably feel like basic sized Star Wars Transformers.

    Sorry if I'm alone in this, but the real Robot Master toys are like bootlegs with their cheap plastic and wobbly joints. I bought the Starscream one and regreted it ever since. Hasbro's right for not releasing them. Just my opinion.

    Could be why Archer says he doesn't like them.

    You're not alone; that (and the mismatched paint apps in jet mode) are why I avoided the RM Seeker 2-pack; too much cash for dubious quality.

    What would be funny is if these KO's were unsold 2-packs repackaged to look like KO's. Hell, I doubt anyone would be able to tell the difference.

    I noticed the wrong stickers on Skywarps wings instantly. he has silver and pruple stripes that are angled near the tips, and this KO has the Starscream/Thundercracker stripe that is red and white... it clashes rather badly :(

    Ugh no thanks...I know I'm in the minority opionin in hating the RM seeker mold, but to me they look just as horrible as the originals. More for the rest of you.
