    There were KOs, but I believe that they were different colors or, if there was a silver one, an unpainted roof.

    HA Sideswipe was very poorly received and didn't sell well. I think there are likely to more unsold of Sideswipe than there are of Bumblebee, and BB was in almost every case! I am not surprised that he is turning up cheap.

    same as leader jetfire was a steaming pile of shit when it first appeared, i'm surprised there is no ko of it yet.

    loads of KO rotf bludgeons from where i come from in asia though , probably because of the blood the dark warrior add on

    Was there ever a KO of HA Mudflap made? I remember seeing like 5 of them in a store in New York City, but passed on them because I wasn't sure.

    If you search the China buy & sell sites, online shops, There are KO versions of HA Sideswipe, BB and even Barricade. I have the KO Barricade. Doesn't fit as well as my original one and it comes loose and without frenzy

    KOs don't use the Transformers brand name.

    Actually, the China KOs do use the Transformers brand. From what I had seen, the packaging is similar, except for box art that is not as sharp as the original

    i think i may have bought one of those KOs by accident.. i remember the boxart being pretty terrible.
    contemplating a proper hasbro replacement now, does anyone reckon its worth it?

    I've got a knock off HA Sideswipe that someone was giving away. In car mode it looks exactly like the official one, but when you try to play with it you can tell it's really poor quality. I never even tried to transform it...

    For Sideswipe?

    Most people seem to hate him.

    But there are a handful of us (myself included) who think he's among the better HA figures.

    I used to rank him second only to Jazz. But I think I may like some of the DOTM HA's better than him as well. But yes, I'd recommend him.

    I think this thread could definitely benefit from pics between the KO and regular HA box art.
