    Don't know if anyone likes these as much as me, but I usually pass on them. They have just restocked on Superion and Bruticus at my local walgreen's had like 30 of each. So if anyone else was looking for these now is the time to get them.

    Well Walgreen's around here only stock up on these during Christmas time. So this is the first time I have seen them in a long time.

    G*dd*mn*t. Everyone around me always clears these out before I have a chance (or the money) to get these. :banghead:

    The ones I saw at Walgreens seemed inferior to ones I saw at Family Dollar. I looked over a Bruticus set and could tell the plastic was paper thin in spots.

    I saw Bruticus the other day and got excited, but on closer inspection it almost looked like it was made out of candy. Probably one of the worst KO's I've ever seen. I was still tempted to get it at only $5 though.

    I've got the Big Lots/Family Dollar Defensor KO (saw the same package at both places), it's pretty sweet for $5.

    Well we don't have family dollar here, but I do own some Big Lots KOs and this one is superior to the crap ones I bought at Big Lots.

    The Walgreens KO Devastator is meh. it's a bitch to get devastator formed and standing properly. However the Aerialbot set is pretty nice. The only complaint is a few loose arms on the couple of the jets, but Superion is very nice.

    Yeah, these have been seen at Walgreens at least a couple of times now. What did the fourth set look like? I can't remember if it was the Protectobots or not.

    Not to be a buzzkill or anything, but those have been out in drug stores and at Big Lots for years. You've got Devastator, Superion, and Bruticus. We'll just say the quality is on par with the price. Hope you get your $3 worth.

    EDIT: The fourth set is the Protectobots.

    Awesome. I didn't notice. LOL. I went to a different Walgreens than usual. It was magical.

    Had the Devestator until he fell over the first time and Scavenger shattered. Still have the Defensor and the Superion KOs. They look fine sitting on top my dresser, but they're too flimsy to touch.

    I wish I had bought those instead of the yellow ones I got. I'd pay 3 bucks for Bruticus KO though.

    A friend bought me a protectobot set a few weeks back.
    It's this one here.

    While the set is nothing to write home about, it isn't a piece of sh*t. The main problem are badly assembled ladders and the black swivel piece (but I can fix that with proper tools) and legs not being aligned properly in truck mode for Hotspot, and the stupid remolded drone heads for the other bots accept Streetwise who has the original head design. The overall quality is not really bad, they hold great in gestalt mode. There are some minor issues here, but even my original Devastator and Ruination have those in combined mode.

    Wow. Shippiing is a killer on that one. I'll have to stop at a Walgreens. They look good for experimental kitbashing.
