    There's a store the uk called Poundland where every item costs a £1
    I was in one of there stores the other day and spotted some imation transformers one of which caught my eye it was a red and blue truck when i looked on the back of the packaging i was suprised to see optimus prime standing there.

    My mother promised she's get me a optimus prime years ago perhaps now i can convince her to spend a £1 and get me one lol

    That's a little pricey.

    Yeah, here there is a dollar store that has a "optimus prime" KO as well. It's supposed to be him, but it is so cheap looking and crappy I didn't even think it was worth a dollar so I passed. Gold Chrome mostly, hideous. It had a red L.E.D. in his chest. Woooooooo

    Funny, I thought "dollar" stores were limited to the redneck areas of the U.S., like where I live. Can't say I've ever seen $1 TF KOs, though.

    I never saw anyhting like a transformer in the dollar store, and it's been there about four years. lots of KO power rangers and never was toys though.

    The main dollar store around here has a pretty decent set of constructicons (connector parts and everything. Plastic, spring loaded hands, and each one's a buck, still pretty good though). They also have some weird combiner I can't recognize because he's that remoulded. I suspect it may at one time have been bruticus. But its not even close to him now. I dont even see connector parts in the package, so they might not even properly connect.

    In my area that kind of shops are called 2 dollar shops. Sounds so right because toys cost twice more here :( 

    I have recently seen KO Primal and T-Rex Megs. 10 bucks for a cheap looking KO!

    I think these would be the Robotmaster knockoffs reported in the UK sightings thread.
    I'd like to get hold of a couple and see if they're any good. If they're rubbish, then £2 isn't too much to lose.
    Only problem is I have to find where there is a Poundland. There isn't one in Halifax, as far as I can tell.

    They suck, theyre brittle as hell.
    I have (jpn names):-
    Wingstun - loose joints and brittle wings
    R-Blade - same as above
    Starscream - Nosecone/Head broken off right out of packaging, arms + wings always fall off/apart.
    Ligier - Fists broken out of pack, mold sucks, but thats Takara's problem.

    ive got one of those...got the red one...hes awful....his arms are from the g1 inferno mold, and to Tform him, you remove his head and arms, then fold his legs back. he does have a great little axe and gun though...for a buck, the weapons are worth it....my classics BB may get them...
