They were originally $50 each so if you could pick them all up for a little under $200 youre getting a fair deal. There are KO's of Shrapnel and Kickback available at chimungmung. I dont know the quality of the KO's because I own the originals.

Darn! How can I tell the KO apart?

I couldn't find them on Chimungmung? Can you give me a link?

They never did a KO for Bombshell. I don’t know how to tell them apart from the originals.

Wow, those KO versions are cheap and apparently at least one of them also comes with a Decepticon sticker.

Considering the problems I had with the quality of the original FP not-Shrapnel, I'm not brave enough to drop any money on the KO, but the price is tempting.

It's reasons like these that I hate KO's. How can Rated X not get screwed in a case like this?

I bought the originals. But I have had issues with a few KOs in the past. But I bought from reputable dealers who replaced them for me. Overall I have had Mostly positive Experiences with KOs. Theyre not perfect, but they accomplish their intended purpose.

Also, since my last posts a KO bombshell has been created so they should have the set.
