    Yep, you got me. Enjoy your day.

    That sucks, I really want to buy a second round of the skittles, but I dont want the quality to be that of the red defensor. I will still buy them, but I pray the quality remains the same.

    You mean, entirely grammatically-correct sentences are hard to decipher? Even syntactically, it's rather blunt. :lol 

    There's always some risk. On the bright side, most of the time, they don't cost very much. :thumb

    Anybody got the studio series Devy KObots yet? Design-wise i came around about not getting them, but I'm still kind of curious about the plastic quality.

    I don’t know if this is been brought up already but I noticed that yellow Superion has Galvatronus’s chest instead.so no chest upgrade for him. But I have the perfect head to put on. Can’t wait. Ship Paul! Ship!!!

    I believe it was noted on the first wave of CBB KOs that they were a mashup of the mold variations. Like some of Onslaught's unique parts were missing. I mentioned the Bruticus chest plate does not tab in as they used Hot Spot's shoulders.

    I only have the Rampage KO so far the quality is excellent. He has some minor differences like screws instead of pins, a couple of missing tampos and some parts have changed colour between grey and black. But the plastic is terrific and the joints are all good - one very small issue was his torso joint was so tight it wouldn't move so I had to loosen the screw to unlock it.

    Superion has two versions of packaging one in the gift set and one in the individual packet - perhaps that makes a difference to which chest it has ?

    A few questions - How well do these 'Skittles' Deluxes (particularly blue Blast-Off) work as limbs with official Hasbro Voyager torsos? (Skittles Blast-Off does have that G1 Scourge-ish deco. So I'm thinking, four 'reformatted' Sweeps + Cyclonus = Galvatronus? )

    Also, about 'Red Defensor' Protectobots, do they work well as individual robots?

    I understand they have flaws, but I'm not thinking about getting most of the Skittles KOs for the combined modes, but as individual figures. Just about all my official CW/UW TFs are in combined mode, but I don't want to get doubles of those, so I'm thinking cheap recolours may do as standalones.

    Do you mind sharing a pic for us? All the ones I've seen were the superior chest, so I'm super curious about it!

    Scourges = kool... pretty sure we all have that exact idea in mind.

    Red defensor individual bots... pretty sure as stand alone bots, they are great additions.

    A complete kombiner is about 40 bucks... hasbro charged 60-100, and takara went for 120+... normally I'd say "you get what you pay for", but in this instance... you get more bang for your buck.

    People can complain left and right about quality and tolerance issues, but in the end, we are getting gravy on the biscuit.

    I only ever wished for a red cw sunstreaker to use as sideswipe... wish granted, thanks to the ko'ds. :thumb

    Wait, this hasn't happened yet, right? I didn't think any of the CW Autobots or Stunticons had been KOd (apart from an OS Offroad and Breakdown, I think)?

    For some reason the Stunticons haven't been KOd aside from those OS ones. It is a mystery.

    No, but the ko red streetwise is close enough for now if I remove the blue lights and tampos.

    They're cw-classics versions of their g1 counterparts, so smudging a bit to fold into a character genre is good with me.
