    ok, so I know the real deal is going for like 600-700$ on ebay. And most of those aren't even complete. I'm not concerned about like the little robots or guns..I just want what is needed to make the big guy. I bought those little KO separate guys at Big Lots awhile back, but didn't have the main body or parts/head to form him. I'm looking on Ebay, and they have 2 versions..

    [EBAY]200754229751[/EBAY]

    [EBAYLINK="http://www.ebay.com/itm/Transformers-KO-Remake-G1-Combiner-Gestalt-LIO-KAISER-Mixed-Lot-Set-MISB-/200754229751?pt=US_Action_Figures&hash=item2ebde271f7"]KO LioKaiser #1[/EBAYLINK]

    Which looks decent I guess..and has the parts i'd want..is this guy full size? Anyone have him and can comment on quality?


    2nd version is just together on a card back.
    But I guess that's just a WST thing.

    I saw another something awhile back about another higher quality KO to him, something like Metamorphs or something...Anyone have anything on that or know where I can get one?

    There's always this one...

    It's actually bigger than the real thing, and comes with all of the chest partners.

    I have it, and I'm thinking of selling it.

    Pretty good quality actually. I have more photos posted in the main Knockoff thread in this section. The colors are wacky, but it's an upsized fully functioning KO.

    It came from China via Ebay, about 10 years ago. I haven't seen any other ones like it before or since.

    Here's another shot of it compared to other robots to show the bigger size.

    Compared to a deluxe size:

    Compared to Bruticus w/Fansproject add-ons:

    So yeah, it's pretty big, and has transformable animal/gun/breastplate partners.

    I can point you to a bootleg that's approximately (or exactly - I don't know) the same size. It has off colors, no "BreastMaster" partners, and I think the combiner head is just an oversized version of one of the individual 'bots' heads.

    It sounds like you're looking for HQ ones. The only ones I know of like that (for certain) is the Taiwanese Metamorphs. NICE job...VERY similar with sticker sheets, window boxes, styro inserts. I think they were done in the early 90s, though, and they go for nearly as much as the real thing.

    I *THINK* there might have been Korean/Chinese KOs shortly after the authentic issues in decent boxes.

    Hope that helps. Good luck. But not too much (I've been trying to get a LioKaiser by cobbling together various ones, but I drop out of the auctions for the Metamorphs once they get above $110 a figure).

    I used to have half of those but never completed the set. Felt a bit cheapish but not too bad. Nice to see a full set.

    I've got a really good quality KO I can share pics of when I get home later. It's a KO version known as "Testron Liocaesar", quality is on a par with the real thing or even better in one case, only thing is it's a rare piece these days. I think it's the same deal as the Taiwanese Metamorphs one haventgrownup mentions - might even be that one, I've not actually looked at the labelling on the box in a while!

    Righto, Testron Liocaesar. The quality is nearly as good as I remember, but there's loose joints in there too which can be a pain, particularly Jaguar who is forever trying to be the Quagmmire of Transformers!

    I still want that one. The colors are so... Garish that you can't help but love it.

    It's so purdy!

    That's better than the $1000 a guy was asking for it a few years ago.
