    Found these guys at Big Lots today along with bootlegs of Vector Prime, Thundercracker, and Hot Shot/Excellion. Basically it's an oversized version of Legends Cybertron Prime. On the back of the package, it also shows Titanium Starscream and Cybertron Soundwave, but they were nowhere to be found. Pity because I want that Titanium Starscream knockoff badly (especially since he has Sunstorm colors). Also notice how they actually used the full-sized versions of the toys in the photos instead of the Legends ones. Shame on you, bootleggers.

    Notice on the front, it says Speed Planet Deluxe Class. And though you can't really see it because the flash is covering it, it says it's Excellion (which is a repaint of Hot Shot in Rodimus colors). Doesn't look like Excellion to me. Looks like Prime.

    Legends Prime is next to them for comparison.

    Now I found this guy in two different colors. Red and yellow. Plastic quality is kinda eh, but to be expected. Expect something to fall off or come loose.

    And vehicle mode, just like Legends Prime, long truck is long.

    Naw these are keepers. I have a soft spot for bootlegs. Especially ones with goofy colors and variations.

    How can these be legal? I remember buying a Devastator KO from BL a while back. The plastic felt cheap and one of the figures broke on me while I was transforming it. :(

    Funny you mention that. They had a yellow Constructicon set as well as off-color Arielbots.

    I think that was the set I bought. It was a KO of the G1 Constructicons and they were relatively small. I don't remember their names, but it was the 'con that formed the upper torso of Devastator. There was this plastic piece that held to together the two halves of that figure and it just snapped on me. :( 

    Had it stayed together, I would've kept the set. I may just head out tomorrow to try my luck with another one.

    Titanium? Looks like Legends of Cybertron Sunstorm to me.

    I.MUST.HAVE.THESE.

    I've kinda gotten away from the KOs here lately, but I still love the ones with size/color variations.

    Gotta fix some error's you've got here:

    That's the cybertron legends starscream mold. In fact, ALL of the bots on the co-sell panel are legends class cybertron KOs. I own Prime, thundercracker,hot shot, and starscream and those all match exactly. The pictures they've got there actually ARE the KO legends they're selling. Which is, in itself, is strange for KO packaging.

    I picked up all those from a Poundworld here. The packaging is slightly different but it still has the same crest logo and artwork off the back. They're all enlarged Legends figures, including the Starscream.
    I also picked up the Constructicon KOs in two packs of three for £1 each. They don't have the combiner parts unfortunately, but £2 for all six members is a pretty good deal anyway. :) 
    And last week I happened across packs with three figures in for £1 of either enlarged Legends Cybertron Scourge, LeoBreaker and Hotshot, or enlarged Legends LeoBreaker, Scourge and shrunken Terrashaver (or whatever the other version of it was called).

    I love me some crazy KOs. :)

    Huh. Odd. Because the yellow guy in the left corner looks almost exactly like my roommate's Titanium War Within Starscream.

    ((Edit: Now that I look at it, yeah now I can see some differences.))

    Mine fit together. My problem is how one piece or another has fallen off due to the cheap plastic. Thank God for super glue.

    I might have bough one or two of these when I saw them at Big Lots but they raised the prices on all their Transformers and other things KOs. There was also this extremely ugly combiner made from different oversized LoCs and some kinda weird combiner that I didn't know what it was from. Plus, more Gundam KOs.

    That's because Cybertron Starscream (the Voyager, Supreme and Legends versions) was loosely based on the War Within design.

    I happened to see these at the Erie, PA west side Big Lots last week. They seemed interesting, but not worth $3 each. Two colors of most of the molds were available. They had a pretty good selection.

    Also the huge bad looking $15 combiners and some other bad looking $10 combiners.

    I dunno, is the quality of any of these decent? If so I'd consider getting some, but I can't trust them yet.
