    I usually use foil for light leaks if the shape of the interior will allow it. Not only does it prevent the leak, but it also redirects the light out the front, possibly making it brighter.

    Will this set work on KO versions?

    I like that idea. It's pretty tight inside the head, but I'm going to try it anyway and see if it's better.

    No the normal sized CKKO version. The company that KOs all the Bape versions and white one.

    Not sure. Even putting the KFC hands into the KO MP-10 was difficult. The parts are just different, and modifications had to be made to get them to work.

    Why not try the Eness hands. Those are of better quality than the KFC versions.

    If I had one gripe is that I wish the new left shoulder had the holes molded in to it so the autobot insignia of the original could be easily pegged in to it.

    But thankfully theirs a simple work around with that, just gotta shave the pegs off the symbols back and then it'll need some simple glue to sit on shadows new shoulder.

    I do like the light up matrix and eye's. But that's about it.

    Same here. I'm assuming the eyes are obviously not painted and remain dark when light gimmick is turned off.

    So buy just those, they are sold entirely separately from the arm parts.

    I got mine from tony over at chimungmung for $40. Imo easily worth it but ehhh I really really hated how his old forearms looked and I had a busted smokestack as is so it was nice to replace that. The much improved ratcheted elbows, tighter bicep swivels, more securely tabbing forearm parts and the solid axe were all just icying on the cake.

    Initially I liked the light up parts more but now I'm thinking the arms and stacks are the best of these two kits and make Optimus look better for the rest of the time when he's not lit up.

    The stacks do work on the KO.

    So these are only in stock at Chinese retailers at the moment? BBTS & TFS both still show pre-order?
    Made the mistake of ordering this from TFSource months ago before I realised what a crap retailer they are and am almost sick of waiting. Prepaid unfortunately so bugger all chance of cancelling.
    Really hoping these arrive soon
