    Big Lots is the most disgusting store I've had the displeasure of visiting. And all there food is expired.

    I have yet to go into a BigLots, but these threads are gettin me to think about it. There are only two that I know of offhand on L.I., and both are in the same town! Kinda weird. But if I could get temporary enjoyment for pennies on the dollar, doesn't sound so bad...

    The ones I remember seeing were the Street Speed team, Corona Sparkplug, and WST Red Alert and Prowl all upscaled to roughly deluxe size I think. They might have been $2.50, but I'm not sure.

    I was in my local Odd Lots (or Big Lots, or whatever they're calling themselves, now) Monday. They had Superion, Defensor, and Devestator knock offs. They were in box sets, for six dollars, each. They also had two packs of the smaller members, (no Silverbolt or Hotspot) but no combiner parts. They also had two Mugenbine KO box sets, for seven dollars each.

    i figured i'd check the toy aisle just to see what's up.. and there they were... a wall of knock offs..they were huge... they were scary

    oh man they were scary... it was scary.

    TFU doesn't work for me for some odd reason, so, I'll have to go to Seibertron and search for them.

    Those are kinda cool. Does anybody know the quality of these?

    The quality is pretty decent for a ko since they're pretty big ,but the scary part are the small plastic tabs used for combining. They make a hoorific about-to-break sound.

    Overall, they are not bad, but still not Hasbro quality, of course...

    I haven't been to my Big Lots lately... That place kinda scares me a little bit. Mostly the location and customers. Figures. I'd love some of those KO Combiners, though. And the upscaled WSTs look really cool, too.

    Hey CM, I remember you posted a pic of KO combiners you had, and I remember Menasor had all of his stunticon limbs. Did you buy the set with 2 technobots and then bought the missing original stunticons tp substitute the technobots??
