    Okay, so I have access to the members of the European-exclusive Rescue Force guys for pretty cheap, and I want to make them into the full team. Does a full-size one exist? I keep finding scaled-down ones...

    wow those look really nice, almost as good as the real ones. i managed to get a ko set from toyhell.com about 2 years ago but the quality is pretty low. maybe the guy still has some (yes the website is pretty atrocious design wise, but guy who runs it, dahveed, is a pretty nice guy)

    How much does the set typically go for, any idea?

    I got the ko set from toyhell too, just to get arms for the Rescue Force. They work well as they're a different colour to the LioKaiser originals, and it comes with a big gun. Got a red Kaiser head from Bogatan and just need some new stickers for the arms now to complete Rescue Kaiser.

    Blueshift did a video review of the Rescue Force which can be seen here. If you jump to around 8:30 you'll see the bootleg arms from the toyhell ko.

    KO toys have been hinting that a few Japanese late 80's exclusives are being copied soon - and Lio Kaiser may be one of them... personally I'm hoping for a high quality copy of Black Zarak though (that does not come with the crumble to a pile of gold dust action feature).

    Those are a vintage KO's and are still pretty pricey. I'm still trying to hunt down a Hellbat from that set to finish mine off. Each figure usually runs between $50-80 each depending on the condition. As far as I know it's spot on with the real deal, the only difference are the stickers (as far as I know).

    There was a low quality KO released seveal years ago (neon colored as well). I got mine for $10 at Botcon 07 or 08.

    I always wondered what the 'Rescue Force' would look like combined with other Liokaiser parts myself...

    I have a vintage KO Guyhawk (looks just like one in the photo, they were sold as "Metamorphs" here in the early 1990s) with Hawkbreast. He is mostly in good condition except for the little flap that goes over his chest (the flap broke off but I still have it).
