    Does it mean knock off, as in not the real thing? And how can people sell these? Wouldn't Hasbro sue?

    Yup, KOs are a copy of the toy. Generally the manufacturer gets away with it because they're either shell companies or because since Hasbro no longer makes the toy, they aren't "out" much in the way of financial loss, so they won't be able to get much money due to lost income.

    I hope they make a KO of Kickback, that'd be freakin sweet!

    Hey AGESTHREEANDUP, could you do me possibly the biggest favor on the planet..... and request the following figures please?:
    -Horribull (and other headmasters)
    -Scoop (and other targetmasters)
    -COMPUTRON (most of all, Abominus wouldn't hurt either)

    I just want them to get the Happywell Dag Shadow with all three animals, not just the bird. The fact it's one of the few KO's that they actually make in the correct colors, doesn't hurt either. Seriously, wtf is up with all the gray and black?

    It's a group of specially fierce TransFormers made for the sole purpose of knocking ppl out.

    See, KOs are made with less care, often times the plastic is brittle or thin, so we call them 'KO' because that is the opposite of 'OK.'
