    Don't know if this awful transformer (??) is even worth being called a knock off…
    The box is actually an Armada Optimus cardboard, with Spanish writings
    Inside the plastic are 3 vehicles: tank, jeep and something that look like an armored vehicle with two weapons
    [​IMG]

    This is how they look outside of the box

    The box comes without any instructions,
    it took me a few minutes to realize the 3 vehicles combing into one robot
    [​IMG]

    in summary: the plastic is crap
    the joints are all loose and brake easily
    the painting is terrible, the figure is wobbly and cannot be posed
    the weapons don't fit the hands, and so on…

    got this in Israel, but it might be available also in other places
    Don't even think about getting this heap of junk

    It's a pity. That tank actually looks really cool. The streamlined turret gives it a very aggressive look.

    KOs are made all the time. The good and the bad. No need to waste your money to warn us.

    The art for the combiners were so bad-ass!

    Its sad to say but I prefer the retro toy's colours.

    Interesting looking toys. I'm sure, years and years and years ago, I saw a set somewhere for cheap, but never got to buy them.

    They look cool, I just might have to pick one up someday.

    Those do look good. Interesting set. I have a bunch of the other ones that have two cars or two jets that combine.

    Yeah, from seeing the tank and jeep I thought it was half of a Bruticus combiner, but that other vehicle was out of nowhere.

    4 technical points sounds like a challange.
    Cool looking set (I like the Armada package), I don't buy KOs, but wouldn't mind that if it's only a couple of bucks.
