    Here's a collection I bet you dont see every day.
    These are my old Four Star Knock Offs.

    3 Seeker jets (1 black, 2 White)
    2 Chop Shop knockoffs (1 red , 1 black)
    5 Different Bombshell Knockoffs (one is like a scorpion!)
    1 Kickback Knockoff
    1 Shockwave Knockoff
    3 different jumpstarters
    Mr Hard Hat (Giftset)
    and Cy-Robots (Giftset).

    I'm not 100% sure the blue jumpstarter and the shockwave KO's are technically from four star but they are both made the same as the others. Remolded parts, etc.

    All the others have Four Star printed on them.
    All are cool.

    P.S.
    Please excuse the crappy pics. I'll take better ones someday.

    Yes they are all Four Star. I actually have a few of those. Can you get me some pics of Mr. Hardhat opened? I want to see if the combiner parts and bots are the same color as mine. Trying to prove a point with Jason ;)

    Love the insects, and to be honest, I think that KO Shockwave (or whatever it's technically supposed to be) looks better than the "real" one.

    thanks.
    you know this shockwave can actually hold his gunbarrel like a shield thanks to some remoulding.

    That what makes these old KO's cool. They changed them up a little.

    NICE, i've never seen that red chop shop or black bombshell and i've been collecting bootlegs since 1998! very nice find!

    megamus, hahah, always trying to show me up. are you trying to prove the hardhats came packed with different colored heads, fists, and chest? not sure about that, i have two boxed ones and both have consistent colored heads, chest, fists. the hardhats came with yellow, red, and blue parts. trying to complete this crap drives me nuts!

    Your mistaken. The one your talking about is grey with clear laser parts and hands. The barrel is also more like the Takara Shockwave. This one is made by Four Star and has many noticeable differences. Actually even the gray color is different than the Shackwave or Galactic Man. I have both. There is also another knockoff that looks just like the Galactic Man but the clear parts are pinkish.

    I have comparison pics of all four variations, well actually there are a lot more but these are the ones we are referring to at the moment. I'll try to find them somewhere with your permission. I don't want to highjack your collection thread for information purposes....

    white four star jet variant

    UPDATE!
    In my quest to complete my White Four star jet, I discovered a variant!

    I'm don't know if anyone has documented this BUT the white one comes in two different body types!

    The one I had is very much like starscream only in white & blue. Its the one with the decepticon symbol I added.

    The other one I got today has the jetfire face, bigger remolded feet and a different molded chest. Like my black four star jet.

    You can see in the pics I took today.

    That is crazy and looks extremely impressive! So these were old Transformer KOs or Diaclone?
