    If and when these show up at Big Lots, I'd immediately get Bonecrusher, Wolfang, Op-bat, Meg-croc, and the Tri Pred Council. The only one I've ever been able to find was the TriPred, and mine is old and loose. I'd be interested in Tarantulas, but Hasbro is making that available, so I'll give them my business (my gray-area morality when it comes to knock offs).

    I dont think all of these are new. I have the exact same tarantulas and waspinator bootlegs. they're made of really soft plastic, and can barely hold together.

    I like Optinus Primal color scheme. Nice looking KO's overall.

    These have several years on the market. Some of the different packaging variants, mentions "General Ape" fighting against Megatron or something....

    THESE ARE THE SPAWN OF SATANS BUTTCRACK!

    I've picked up two of these KO's. they were available in the infamous "easter baskets" at K-mart last year, and have very poor quality. The plastic is terrible, and the molds have been drastically simplified. I bought the "Megatron" in twrecks flavors. only arm articulation was at the shoulders. I also bought Dinobot in Grimlock flavors, falls apart way too easily.

    The "New" Waspy and Rhinox look like they've spent some time camping out on the sun. :)

    Yeah they're "burning" versions. We got Burning Convoy; why not Rhinox and Waspinator?

    Yeah, but when you have a "Burning Waspinator", it's more of a comedy thing. :)
