    Which KO's are you talking about? Cause there are some review of the mirage and other higher quality KOs on this forum. Just look around or do a search.

    I'm waiting on the Metroplex KO review. If any of you come across a good in depth review, please post it here please.

    I agree with this topic. We should have an ongoing thread devoted to various KO figures, reviews and pictures. Maybe it should even be a sticky!

    Posted here before, but here are some KO pics I took...

    Maybe we should have a seperate "DESIGNATED/MAIN" thread for each KNocKofF?

    List the thread as Official....... example: Official Metroplex KO review thread.

    Nah, as good an idea I think that is... that's really a mod's decision. In fact, that's probably a decision that all the mods would have to discuss and come to an agreement on. I think. Something like that.

    However, I do think that, though they may be KOs, they are still transforming toys that people on these boards are interested in... so feedback threads on them, high quality KO/replica/whatever or Big Lots low-quality KO, a feedback thread is probably appropriate.

    A great thread actually... I really enjoyed the pics, though we don't even HAVE Big Lots in Canada, so all of those toys will have to remain out of my hands, sadly.

    I suggest a general thread for pictures and reviews of ALL kinds of KO figures... that way we can come to one sticky thread for all our KO reference needs. And there are certainly some KO's that I'd love to find out more about.

    I'm still kicking myself for not scoring one of those oversize Classics Astrotrain KO's that was on Ebay a few months back, and then never turned up again. I'd love to obtain one, or at least see some pictures that show off how crappy or great it might be.

    Yeah, I agree. We need one general thread for all kinds of KOs and bootlegs. Just like on Seibertron.com. They have a great there, with pictures and concise reviews.

    I can post some pics of the various Yuusha KOs I've picked up these last few weeks to get this thread going, if anyone's interested?

    This thread was made for those every day big-lots (Or any other place) KO's.

    So, I have to know, how much were they and where did you find them. Especially the giant Wrecker Hook KO. I still don't have that mold, but if I had a choice I'd *love* to get one as big as a deluxe. XD

    My ko collection (10 pages, tons of Big Lots )
    http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v148/loebig/Knockoffs/



    Review- Looks cool, plastic sucks

    The ones with the best quality that I own are the mini G1 Gestalts, and the oversized Machine Robo's. The oversized Spychangers are awesome, but not sure if they're ko's.

    The G1 Bruticus's arent bad either. All mine held up pretty well

    Well (and I admit, part of this comes from wanting to feel like I did something good), if you think it's a good idea, go to that thread I started and start posting! ;) 

    Ooh, actually, I have two more KOs I can add to that thread.
