    Yeah it has some pretty neat stuff at times, I picked up a Energon Unicron from there for around ten bucks a few years back.

    ^Pretty much, any of the leftover products from the big retailers gets shuffled through Tuesday Morning, it's the reason why I have some of my Bionicle and Transformers figs.

    Found ko bruticus menasor and devy at Tuesday morning. The carded ones. Do they ever have the boxes sets? I think those are taller?

    Either way its a deal for 5.99. I'm going stand them in the back of my collection so they will be raised up a bit to offset the height.

    Thanks guys for the help. Tuesday morning is only place I found these other than 30 bucks on ebay

    No prob dude, and you might want to check Tuesday morning every other two weeks or so the KO's alternate and trust me they do have the box sets circle through them. =)

    Should only be about two or three dollars difference, all of the KO sets I've found at mine are pretty cheap, be they carded or boxed. =)

    Oh well, at least you got yourself a pretty good KO haul today right? Like I said tho check back in every two weeks or so they should have some more KO's in by then and I know for a fact that they've had the boxed Bruticus and Superion there before, not sure about Menasor tho but odds are he'll turn up soon too. =)

    So they not like big lots where they stock once every few months. Yea ill check out every few weeks. Some reason the one close to me had no boxed sets so either they were out or don't carry them.

    I saw this at the gift shop of an old steam train tour place:

    Loco Squad

    I almost bought it, but it was 18 bucks (I kinda regret it, from my research, it's pretty high quality).

    Yeah honestly the KO's are a mixed lot, some of them are actually decent but a good majority are pretty bad they're mainly meant to be transformed and left on display.

    Hopefully you'll find better quality KO's in the future, and hey, at least you didn't find out after paying +30 bucks on ebay.

    that sucks, I have two of the carded KO combiners, and they're awful. the defensor one can't hold his own fist, so he has to stand with his arm raised all the time, and Groove doesn't even transform properly.
    The Abominus/Technobot mix is a little better, but not exactly great.
    if you find combiners in G1-like packaging though, they're likely to be better quality.
