    and when I went inside to pay for it I noticed that they had a toy section. It was KO City! They had all sorts of Power Ranger KOs what i have no idea as I have never cared for that series. What caught my eye was a Voyager class sized Energon Arcee, an Deluxe sized Armada Sureshock, and what really caught my eye was a decent quality KO of G1 Doubledealer. I'll shoot some pics when I go back for the Doubledealer

    I bought one of the Doubledealers (packaged 2 ways)

    Doubledealers plastic is quite good for a KO, I would put it on par with the Chinese Dia Atlas that came out a few years back. He has some of his stickers (All Autobot) and while he has both Powermasters, the lock-out to transform him is not present. The colors are almost spot on, just a few minor differences. What's funny is the entire instruction sheet from the real one is on the back.

    I've seen that Arcee before. Kinda gaudy, but kinda cool at the same time.

    The Doubledealer looks cool.

    Doubledealer was well worth the $6 I paid for him. I'm going to Reprolabel him

    Good grief -- that Doubledealer looks GREAT. I need a chest plate and missile front end for my original one -- is the KO the same size?

    Agreed! Since I've seen the oversized Arcee at Biglots as well as some oversized minicons ( just not that one ), I'm gonna hope this guy shows up there as well. I want that DoubleDealer.

    I have the KO DoubleDealer, plastic is soft but the scale is the same with the real thing.

    As a lot of people have already said, that Doubledealer looks awesome. Was your car wash a regular car wash, or was it part of a gas station? If it's the latter, I need to know what the gas station name was. :p

    I got it at a Danny's car wash, a chain here in AZ, I don't know if they are all over.

    The plastic on mine is not that soft at all. it's got a KO feal, but higher quality than most KOs.

    Yep the size is spot on.

    For $5.99 it's a steal.
