    Just made my first trip to a Big Lots store. The toy section was only one shelf, but I got two cool KOs.

    Heinlad was $5. TMII Megatron was $10. Let's take a look:

    Not bad. Not bad at all. The paint apps obviously aren't close to the real thing, but there is enough paint to make it look alright. The clock isn't there, replaced by a sticker. But he still has his mighty tanookie robo-nads, and that's what's important. :D  The goggles don't move like the original, and some joints are too loose and some are too tight. For $5, I'm happy.

    OK, this guy really feels like a KO. Pretty floppy, some connections are a bitch to make, etc. But still...that's a pretty cool color scheme. I like it.

    His wing extention gimick is present and working. All other gimicks have been removed. The covers to the wheels in his legs no longer open. His heels no longer articulate, making him difficult to stand (you need a PhD in action figure standology). The dragon tail is the same, rubber and all, but the dragon neck is a bizzaro new rubber mold with no armor plating. $10 and a cool deco of a great mold...with lots of drawbacks. You could do worse.

    And finally, each figure came with one of these guys. They're tiny specks of clear plastic molded into aligators wearing cuttoff jeans or something. To be thrown in as a bonus with cheap-ass KO toys, they must be virtually free to produce. Whatever. I like 'em. :p

    The Heinlad looks pretty good. I like the deco of the Megs too, albeit it is missing many details like you said.

    Is that Megatron the oversized version? Or the one that's approximately the same size as the original?

    I've seen them both at Big Lots before, each in multiple different color schemes. They both look great... may pick one up.

    There were several different color schemes for the Megatron KO at my local Big Lots. Can't remember what all of them were, but I think there were at least 3 variations, including the one you've pictured here.

    Same size as the original.

    Hmmm... An oversize exists you say? I'll have to look into that.

    There is no oversized KO of Dragon Megs, just two downsized version

    Those small figures from what i saw in past years, are from digimon figures

    Tell that to my Big Lots. The oversized one they sell is like twice the size of the original. It was like... $11.99, I think?

    Damn. I HAVE to get Liz to pick me up one of those.
    Heinlad looks pretty cool, except the twatty sticker where the clock was on the original (one of my favourite Japanese toys in my collection, I have to say). And I am LOVING that TM2 Megatron KO.
