    A KO! :wtf: 

    This is pretty cool, better than some CW stuff. I might pick it up as a desk bot

    I'm surprised no one ever KO'ed quickslinger/brake neck/blast off... seems like they would have made some quick cash if they did...

    I managed to get the Hasbro versions of CW Slingshot, Wildrider, and Groove... so it feels like the Blastoff mold will probably turn up eventually. But a good-quality KO would probably make a lot of people happy who missed them the first time.

    I'm actually doing that right now. I have him in surgery to add outward movement to the shoulders and I'm figuring out where to get a head. His coloration and transformation are perfect for TM Megatron.

    Does anyone recall if the Shapeways head that was muted for the TFC Dinobot team ever came out - I feel he need a helm for combined mode.

    These ones were deluxe sized I think but the boxes were big like voyager toys.

    It amazes me nobody has yet made bigger wings to plug on that mold... It would be easy enough to fit on, the only trick would be detail and paint

    Yeah I just bought a bunch of old Unicron trilogy toys, and half of those old $20-30 toys are bigger than what passes for leader class now. With way more plastic and stronger too etc. you can feel the weight difference so much in those older toys, kind of freaks me out when I pick them up in comparison to the current lines.

    Those are not KO's, but original molds designed by TFC for a chinese company for kids They also did the star rescue team that turns into a not-Defensor. I have two sets of the dino ones, they combine into a gestalt also and are great fun.
    They have been out for several years.

    To confuse things, a company did actually KO the original molds into an inferior product. You can see both the original ones and the KO ones on sirtoys

    Are all the Mech Fans Toy KO's this size? I thought they were all legends sized.

    There was a problem with your screenshot. It should have looked like this.

    I know this is a long shot but does anyone know where to buy KOs of laserbeak and frenzy? I'm looking for the all white/red and all black versions.

    I have no idea. They are KO's OF Legends scale toys.
    The Transformers ones (eg Huffer/Nemesis, Prime, Scream, Megatron etc are OS, making them bigger then legends, but smaller than deluxe).

    The iron factory Galvatron KO is new, so that is the first image I have seen that confirms it's size. I've never seen the original, so have no comparison, but I assume it would be smaller. There are reviews of all the War in Pocket series (the official toys) on youtube for comparisons etc.
