    Wish my Poundland would get these. Last I looked they were still stuffed with those Combaticon KOs.

    yeah thought so but never really been into the animated transformers. I have an addiction to cheap fake toys though.

    Shame they didnt have any others. Would have liked the remaining 3.

    Well it seems the 3 you don't have pictures for are KO's of ROTF scouts if the back package pic is to go by.

    seen these in my local pound land today along side KO's of the Machine wars jets in raindow colours. they look sooo cheap honestly £1 is asking for a bit much. Also BB's arms are just 1 peace of plastic so they have made these about as simple as they can get

    That's how Animated activators work. In alt mode you push a button and they automatically transform into robot mode (well, you still have to move a few things, but you get the idea.)

    Yes, these are definitely the (slightly oversized) TFA activator knock-offs.

    I could only find the Ratchet and Prime ones in London. The seeker mold looks great.

    Certainly, the Poundland in Ealing Broadway had all four combaticon limbs in RiD-accurate recolours.

    Great find, though. The activators are fun to play with but those KOs are a little, well, unstable back in Alt mode.
