Big Lots is carrying a line of not-Constructicon vehicles They are voyager sized, and packed 2 for $10. They make 4 vehicles, which looks surprisingly like low-budget cousins to TFC Hercules or Maketoys Giant.

Unfortunately, they do not sell the bots that has the body and hands. So, you can't really have a combiner per se.

I've seen these a few times. Been tempted to buy them, but I want to hear from someone who has them first.

They're the [Links are hidden for guests. Please Register.] figures that came out a few years ago, but those are made for the export market, (no Chinese on the box), I wonder if the plastic quality is the same.

Yes, I need to take much better pictures of this guy, that's my next project after digging him out of storage. Then I will probably be selling him.

It's the somewhat oversized, garishly colored Liokaiser KO!

That's just a teaser, more and much better photos are coming, I promise.

Yes, it's ugly, but it's pretty well full functional and includes the animal breastplate guys.

Yup. KOToys used to carry it. It's not bad, but it's not great. Mine's currently being repainted into Nova Prime.

Blunghole, was it you who did a video review of those constructicon like KO's
that scaleface posted? I know someone did a video review, I just thought it was you.

Here are some better photos of the oversized LioKaiser KO that I bought a long time ago.

I don't know where he came from, and I haven't seen this KO every again, but he's a somewhat upsized, garishly colored KO, including fully transforming Brestforce partners. The quality is pretty good, all of the combining function is there. I'm pretty sure I have Killbison's breastplate partner, but I didn't find him the first time I looked.

Combined into Liokaiser:

Some height comparisons:

I'm thinking of selling this guy, he'd make a great project for someone who could paint him up to look like the original. I thought it was interesting that for all of the odd color choices, he seems to have all of the originals' functions, and has what looks like Decepticon symbols on his stickers.

Is Leozak missing a tailfin, or do you have it stashed somewhere?
