    Ok, almost everyone has a couple of KOs. So which one would be your favorite? Mine would be one I just got...The G1 Shockwave KO with the red parts. They really knew how to make the fakes back then. My mind might change when my complete KO Cassette Man arrives. I always liked the darker colors better than the original release.

    my two favorites are the ones closest to the real things that cost the most:
    1. dinoking with all six dinosaur shells--real one costs at least $400, got this for $70
    2. raiden--real one is $500, this was $7. yes I realize the stickers are a bit cheap and the plastic may not be the best, but honestly, does anyone PLAY with a raiden?
    3. abominus--not that the original's THAT expensive, but this was $10, the plastic's super high quality, and the only issue is that two of the figures have color-swapped schemes, I believe

    I like the mini devastator. I've always been a sucker for scaled-down things.

    I like the Minis and Mirco KOs that look like the original. Mini Fort Max, Jr. Energon Omega Supreme, and Micro Superion, Menasaur, Devastator, Defensor & Bruticus. Oh, and I like oversized Micromaster KO's too. :D

    I SO want the oversized Bruticus! :rock 
    I was thinking about using its dog-shaped symbol for the reprolabels
    contest,but I thought it would be cheating. :( 

    I like the cassettes and optimus prime kos,
    and anything else of similar quality.they're fun.
    :D

    I dont have any KOs aside from the black and yellow devastator I got from walgreens. I love it. some silver and red paint added to it, all stickers removed, and chrome parts added in from the individually sold construction KOs at the same store (the ones with retarded colors), and I have a super-badass devastator custom.

    Raiden & LeoKaiser. KeoKaiser is almost a perfect copy of the original toy, right down to the box. All I need is some replacement faction stickers and I'm set.

    alright, here's your pics. in this one, the 6 dino shells from dinoking are the ko's

    [​IMG]

    in this one there's the combined dinoking, as well as the abominus bootleg. and yes, 3/5 of that menasor is a ko ;)

    and finally, in this one is the ko raiden, road caesar and land cross. the sky garry's not a ko, but the red sonokong one that I repainted.
