    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.

    I could probably find the Aoobo cars. The Construction Combiner, maybe more difficult.

    If you come across them (Construction Combiner) I'd be interested? Would that be the only color they're availible in?

    They appear to be simplified Armada minicons. The boat is for sure, I own the original. Not 100% sure aout the car ones though
