    I just purchased the SRD-Bot set knock of devastator and was wondering if anyone knew anything about it. Will reprolabels fit? Will upgrade sets fit? I know my best bet would be a real G1 Devy but funds don't allow for that. I do have a Combiner wars Devastator and like it but looking at the knock offs and real one I see that it lacks alot of what the combiner wars figure has. Also what upgrade set would you recommend for both the ko and combiner wars figures. I don't have the ko on hand yet. 1473692155793-928776445.jpg

    The new Tobot(?...the seller seems to be indicating as much) figures are pretty compelling... Duocon Beasties? There was another auction I bumped into from the same seller that only had the main combined form and no other working images, so not sure if there are vehicles in the mix too.

    Those have been out many months there is a whole other series after that one.

    Go trawling through Peaughs Vids he reviewed them all some months back.

    They are pretty good - actually especially if you like Sentai as well as they are more Sentai like toys than Transformers. Oh and if you buy the giant gift set version you get an additional weapon with them. There is also a moderate amount of backwards compatibility too.

    (edit)


    Peaugh channel : peaugh

    Use the search box and type or paste in "Biklonz"

    I won't give the links as the board auto-converts them into embedded videos - and I'm note sure that is inside the rules to do that.

    Ebay:
    They're on Aliexpress for about 50 bucks. Just search Decool 3335. I wasn't that impressed though, pieces could be higher quality.

    There's 3 of them in that size. Hit the gallery :)  Search DSC03212 or click 'Next' 965 times until you have seen 24124 pics of TF KOs (which everyone should do at least once lol).

    Thanks for the IDs!

    I have most of those Brick "Lego" Star Wars sets, and a few more. Saving them for CNY holidays.

    Especially if it was recently added. There's new stuff coming out all the time, no room to stock everything, but if it's recent I can still go find it.

    I wonder if customizers would buy junkers by the kilo?

    I need that in my own collection. :)  They're made in Korea so it's cheapest to get them directly from there. (hoping they make China versions like they did with the Carbots).

    That's "Galaxy Shuttle" The japan only G1 transformer of big price-ness. I'd love to own the original, but damn so pricey. He transforms from bot to american colored space shuttle. He's not a triple changer.
    But maybe you were using Astro in the generic sense, seeing as he is way more well known.
    Thanks for posting, cool weird thing that it is.

    NOT- MP Grimlock just showed up from the courier (courtesy of Lena / ebay) and I could not resist having him in a family group photo.

    Think I paid $80 total AU including shipping, which was only like $10 more than that Voyager warbo KO (which is also awesome!)

    I've got the Bumblebee of the set. He is easily the sturdiest version of this I have (I also have the WeiJiang voyager size and the offical Takara one). I have the Stinger version in voyager size as well and that one does have a working battle mask. I assume this guy does as well. The worst thing about him is the side windows are yellow plastic and not clear.

    Out of curiosity... I saw those on Sir Toys and thought they looked awesome but wasn't sure what they were. Do you know if they are KO's of a certain line or 3rd party figures?

    My second set of Machine Boy Combaticons arrived today. Man they are nice!
    The other ones have been in a toy boy since I got them and are reserved for the gestalt mode, once combined, they will stay that way.

    The second set are for display in bot mode.
    The head sculpts are fantastic, and the paint schemes to die for, so colorful and full of personality, the weapons are really cool too, like Brawl tank turret can pull apart into a hand weapon, as can most of the other vehicle mode weapons. So impressed with these guys, can't wait for Non-slaught.

    ***Does anybody know how to transform Blast-Off's legs?*** I watched a vid, and they just seem to slide down, but they are super tight on my one and I don't want to break them, any more force and I'll pull the entire leg off. Any tips to loosen it up to move it for first time?
    Think I'll have a go later with the screwdriver, they may be pinning he the leg in / too tight.

    How the HECK did you get the red Grimlock?
    It's been unavailable since the first time it was listed, and it's been on my sirtoys "want list" ever since, but not become available.
    So how did you order it?

    I know, right? Fingers crossed.

    Thanks for the heads up, I was out of these scene for a year or so so I've lost track of all the goodies :)
