    I went into Walgreen's the other day looking for Movie Legends. Didn't find any of them, but I did see G1 knock off combiner sets 3 for $11. There were four sets all together, they had near the same Aerialbots and Protectobots sets as Big Lots.

    Walgreen's also had, unlike Big Lots, "original" (green & purple) colored Constructicons and Combaticons sets, which were similarly colored to the pairs of arms and legs bots from Big Lots.

    Even though I didn't buy any, yet, these sets appear to be the same quality as the Big Lots sets.

    So, if you're interested in KO combiner Combaticon sets or green Constructicons you might want to stop in your local Walgreen's.

    Definately down for green Constructicons, I only found G2 color in Big Lots.

    I found that green Constructicon set a few years back in one of those Wal-Mart Easter baskets

    I think I have that Constructicon KO. I can't remember where I got it though. Anyway it was made of crappy plastic and didn't fit together well.

    Ironically enough a couple of guns that came with it make absolutely perfect weapons for Lego people.

    Not bad. How is the quality? Not that I really need another set but...

    What I really want to find are some of the sets that aren't all over... like the Raiden (which I have never seen in a store)... maybe Landcross... even Piranacon or Computron.

    I wish the "good" G1 KO's (Mirage, Swoop, etc.) would show up in a place like Big Lots!

    Wonder if that KO Shockwave will ever wind up there. Looks to be the same type of KO.

    I really don't have anything to compare to this knock off, I couldn't tell you.

    I think it's fine for me..

    Just realize it's a knock off. I'm happy with it. and for 12 bucks for three combiners..or 5.99 for one.. I just don't think you can go wrong.

    Devastator looks sad.

    It's colours are brighter than the g2 set.

    I picked up Devastator, Superion, and Bruticus. They had Defensor, but I've never really been a fan of that one, though Hot Spot is pretty cool looking. The KO stickers for the Protectobots are hilarious. Streetwise has a big ugly sticker on his door that says "wantables"!

    Speaking of stickers, did anybody's Bonecrusher come with any? The Bonecrusher in my set came totally naked. I never thought I'd miss those low-quality, crooked and peeling stickers, but without the chest one, he just doesn't look right.

    I went on my lunch break and bought Devastator, Superion, and Defensor. I left Bruticus. $11.98 + tax!
