    I've not seen these mentioned anywhere else apart from a UK board, but there's some new knockoffs floating about, namely:

    Powermaster Getaway
    Actionmaster Voyager Movie Prime
    Strange Dinosaur things
    And.. (a bit older this one) the Armada Bendy Prime police

    I've taken a few photos of them on my site which you can have a look at. They're probably the more awful knockoffs I've seen, which is a shame

    Sadly the red Getaway comes solidly packed to a case, so there aren't any other powermasters or colour variations

    I used to buy this sort of thing, then I realised I was throwing money away. It would have been kinder to the environment if I'd given the money to charity rather than encouraging the production of items I laughed at for thirty seconds before lobbing them in a corner (normally breaking them in the process). Just say "no" to knockoffs, kids.

    Sadly, I know I'll be buying a crotchformer at some point. Crotchmaster? Dinocock-former?

    I picked that guy up at Poundland a few weeks ago but didn't post it in the KO thread because the good quality of KOs in there would've embarrassed this poor cheapy guy. :p 
    Just a pity he doesn't come with his engine partner (he appears to still have the spring mechanism for it) and has a sword instead of his gun.

    I also grabbed me one of those Armada Prime things a while back. :)

    I passed on the BayFormer figure thing because it doesn't transform (and where's the fun in that?). And I already have a DinoCock Prime from ages ago so I skipped the new stock of those too.

    I think the sword he comes with is vehical voltron's sword (possibly the same mold as the rubbery "assembler" version)

    I grabbed this guy at Big Lots a while back. Now my wife calls every single one of my Transformers "Super Tructor". As in "Get all of your Super Tructors off the family room table!".

    She has me doing it too.
    "Sweetie, have you seen my big green Super Tructor?" While looking for movie Brawl.
    "Don't knock over Super Tructor." After carefully posing Masterpiece Starscream.
    "Keep the lights up. I can't see Super Tructor." While playing with Universe Cyclonus in the TV room.

    Sometimes I will call a crap Transformer "Regular Tructor".
