    Hey gang, Just a heads up for those who might be interested. My Big Lots near me just got TONS of KOs in. Goin' from memory I recall:

    Aerialbots giftset =$8
    Protectobots giftset =$8
    Constructicons giftset=$8

    Generic Dinobot 4 pack =$5 (I think)
    Generic Insecticon 4 pack=$5(I think)

    Oversized Constructicon 2 pack (3 sets covering all G1 molds) =$3

    Oversized deluxes (G1 Sideswipe, Prowl, Excellion, a couple molds I don't recognize) =$4

    Deluxe sized versions of Cybertron molds Soundwave, Vector Prime, Starscream, Optimus Prime, Excellion, Thundercracker =$3 (see pic, I grabbed Vector Prime:thumb )

    Universe style combiner teams, Aerialbots (Sixwing), Railbots (Sixtrain), Constructicons (Sixbuilder), as well as a scaled down "WST" sized G1 Devastator (which I also grabbed!:thumb ) =$5

    There was some other generic stuff, too, like oversized BW stuff, I think:confused: . Also some Power Ranger lookin' stuff too.

    They are most definitely KO quality:banghead: , but might make for good practice fodder, or if you need some parts and don't want to fork out a ton 'o cash!
    I double checked another Big Lots and they had the same huge assortment, so they should be pretty abundant, but if somebody needs something and isn't near a Big Lots, PM me and I'll try and grab ya some!

    Moderators, feel free to move this to the appropriate section if need be!:D 

    BASH ON!!----BH:rock

    I think there's a thread in the TF toy disscusion about some of these ko's, but can't remember what it's called. Personally I wouldn't mind getting ahold of the Vector Prime, Optimus Prime, Sunstorm, and Soundwave ko's, as they'd make decent kitbash fodder.

    Edit: Here it is-

    Looks like I'll be trying to get over to Big Lots soon. It's going to be a good while before the Dollar Store their building in town is done, and even then I haven't really found many KO's at them in the past.

    Yeah, I picked up the micro-mini Devastator you have pictured there at Big Lots last week for $5. Its actually not bad at all for KO.
    Big Lots always seems to have these KO's.

    Yeah, if please somebody can grab me 9 sets of those to make at least 3 Devs...Please let them be really oversized and not the regular G1 size. If the individual cons could be deluxe size that would be awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey guys! I'll go grab 1 set of the Constucticons and post comparison pics next to my G1 guys. They are oversized, but more like a scout class. I should update in a couple hours.:thumb

    well i picked up a blue redalert the car form is cool but the bot mode sucks apples.

    encline and others i did not find the main mother load in the main toy isle and i was frustrated. My son found the majority of the good stuff in another place in the store. BTW the dragon megatron is a good find if you are into the whole transmetal thing the real dragon megatron is hard to find and expensive

    also the full size gestalt's are over priced 8.00. i bought 3 for 12.00 last year at Walgreen's.

    i did not see any kind of jumbo figures at my big lots just micro and regular g1 size i will post a pic of blue redalert later tonite

    Hey gang, picked up a couple Constructicons I THOUGHT were oversized, turns out they aren't.:dunce  I haven't broke out my G1s for so long when I compared them I found they are the same size! I apologize for getting peoples hopes up, and am still willing to pick up some stuff for anyone who needs them.
