    Sorry no pic.......the box is the standard "Super Transform Robot Warrior" type crap, but its not made by the usual ko companies and isnt a biglots or family dollar thingy. its a gestalt of sorts, made up of five minicon sized construction type vehicles ( a backhoe, a crane, a dump truck, a mix truck, something else) that all join onto this blue lump of plastic to form the big robot. The set also comes with an extra minicon sized bot that doesnt attach anywhere to the gestalt. It is actually decent quality plastic, and the arms, hands and feet must be attached separately, like the G1 gestalts. every vehicle is a different color, and a couple of them have Autobot stickers on them. Once put together, it actually looks pretty cool, and stays in one piece. im still confused as to what the extra guy does (btw he's a dark greenish truck) They almost look like KOs of minicons but the transformations are too simple, even by minicon standards.The combined gestalt looks like a cross between Superion, Devastator and a 80's gay disco. What the hell is this thing?

    I have that same ko version DC has. Heres a close up on the green bulldozer

    The blue Autobot symbol is kinna strange.

    It's only worth 5-10$ but you never know in a few years.
    Only ko's that ever really increase significantly in value are the giant oversized ones.


    Here's some oversized ko Spychangers that are pretty neat, on pg 2 & 3 (Which Ithink It was Dragonclaw who hooked me up with them)

    That green bulldozer is a Gobot ko. I happen to have it. It sucks. Bad.

    While I may not have the original, I'm liking my Biglots KO much better than that one.

    The machine robos are alright, the connection joints are pretty loose but the individual modes are solid, and they reproduced the colours and all the stickers.

    Only problem is they turned all the transparent plastic opaque, and that kind of screws up the motorcycle guys (their faces are behind the windshields).
