    I remember getting mine from an ebay seller AGES ago... it musta been like ten years, because I remember having him for a long time... right now he's still got some decepticon stickers I made for him out of postal labels and purple markers :lol  And if the Wildly was the size of the originals, then they are tiny, but I don't think that's the case... seibertron.com has some photos of MS and DK next to guys like Galvatron, and I think they may be the same size.

    This bootleg was made in China and called "Racebot Rider 28" on the packaging (which also features Mirage's original box art). This garishly-colored Mirage has new stickers, including the numeral 28 on the hood. It comes with his hunting rifle but no missile launcher, and has snap-on plastic wheels. The toys was simplified so that the elbows and wrists have no articulation and the legs don't separate in robot mode. There are at least two color variations. There's another version my brother doesn't have yet. It's has blue legs, red middle section and a white front end.

    Also,There's another version that looks like a similar mold, but it's cast in more or less the correct colors. The chest is metalized silver, the forearms and fists are blue (and have no articulation), and the face is unpainted, but other than that it's a pretty decent reproduction. This one also has snap-on plastic wheels.

    Onslaught actually looks pretty good in that shade of green, imo. Seems to be missing his chest plate though. And it may just be me, but it also looks like the slightly altered one that has the firetruck-like cab-over-engine styled front end to it.

    Yep, that's the RM version of Snarl. I remember owning the original BW version. Wouldn't mind getting ahold of one again.

    On a side note, anybody know of any decent quality RID ko's out there that are easy to get ahold of?

    That Prime actually looks pretty cool, with alot of paint and he'd be awesome. Where'd you get him from?

    Yeah, that Prime looks pretty good. Wouldn't mind one of those, to join the three or four other KO Robotmaster Primes I've got.

    We need either a sticky or a section for KO's.

    Yup. He didn't get his chest plate but he did come with other extras:

    He came like this:

    Also these guys:

    Not over my way unfortunately. I'd love to chance upon some when digging through shops.

    Some Cybertron Legends (and deluxe Brimstone), in differing changed sizes:

    It just cropped up in an independent discount shop here. These three guys were only £2.99 each (Alt Grimlock was normal size). Unfortunately they've all since sold (mostly to me to give to friends who kept trying to lay claim to mine :p  ):

    I have a KO G2 Devastator, Superion, and Defensor. Devvy falls apart when you look at him, Superion falls backwards at the knees, (then again, the original did that...) and Defensor is surprisingly sturdy.

    They are all in a bag now and I need to get rid of them because they are ugly and not fun at all. :)

    I had that with my KO Raiden. Utter crap. Transformed the figures and combined it once, and then stuck it back in the pack and hid it away.

    Somewhere I've got some double-sized Powermaster Darkwing and Dreadwind. I really should write on my storage boxes what they have in them, then I may actually be able to find stuff back out easier. :p

    So would I... :p 

    They came on A4-sized blistercards in jet mode and both had the same background of G1 artwork and photos of the characters. They were my first KOs so I thought they were official TF products since they had the TF banner (ah, the innocent youth of me). I can't remember if the stickers were silvery or not, but I do remember they were accurate in design to the originals. They were done in the correct plastic and paint colours and came with their Powermaster engines and guns.

    The extra accesories helps make up for it though, and he does at least come with the Bruticus chest plate (though the smaller one looks better on him while not in gestalt-mode, imo). I just noticed he's also missing his traditional guns on his back, though the accesories help make up for that too. If I could find one of these at my local Dollar General, I'd probably get it. Only TF-like ko's I've seen there so far are what appear to be Road Bot ko's (look similar to them).

    Ah, see, my KO Dreadwind and Darkwing are significantly undersized. Like about half the size of the originals. They still came with little non-transforming PM figs, tough.
