Holy crap, I had these a while back. My uncle got these thinking they were Transformers for my birthday party. I could never figure out how to transform them, as there were no instructions. The dragonfly was the only one I managed to figure out. They broke a few weeks after. I still have bits and pieces lying around.

You just killed 4 birds with one stone. Great review! If these are new (or new-ish) KO's there are a few minor differences from the ones I have. My grasshopper (or locust) bot has basically no face, the insect legs are jointed, and the robot legs can extend. Everyone else is exactly the same except my beetle is blue and the grey parts on the bee are black on mines. Also, the bee is one of the weakest (loosest) out of all of mines. Is that the case with your set?

Really informative article, I

Really informative article, I bought the set for my nephews from Big Lots thinking they were of some relative quality. They held up rather nicely to rough play with a 3 and 5 year old, but the set I bought was even further simplified! The grasshopper robot no longer had arms, the hornet robot legs were fused, and the beetles transforming capability was removed entirely! The dragonfly robot strangely enough retained the same joints and parts as the sample in the article

the version i got of this set

the version i got of this set was worse, the beetle and grasshopper had no arms while the grasshopper's robot legs were put on backwards so it looks grasshopper like in bug mode so you have take them off and switch them around and the bee's stinger was a hollow mono leg
I'm still amazed the dragonfly had nothing wrong with it
