Question about Optimal Optimus armour plates

Postby Tonelock » Wed Jan 23, 2013 5:26 am

Ok so I ordered an optimal Optimus from eBay but no armour plates and gun, I found a set of plates on eBay as well but there ko's, from what I can tell from the pic they look the same but not 100% anybody know if the ko's will fit?

i do know that the original armor plates are actually spring loaded missiles in effect so they dont just peg in they look like a missile. im not sure how these kos would stay in since they dont have a notch to hook onto something to prevent the springs from ejecting them.

even if you find them again i dont think id risk investing in them and having them turn out to be crap given this.

up to you of course!

I ended up not buying them and there back up on eBay, and no they are not even close to the same I compared pics and the peg holes aren't even the same but if you need them for the KO version then there won't be any problems, and there only 5 bucks.
