    Not to break your stride or anything, but I'd recommend using the Multiquote feature here on the forum, rather than chaining together a several separate replies in a row. It generates more forum spam when you post so many separate replies like that. :)

    The gun for Trypticon is like the guns of Evas - just a building-sized human SMG.

    AROOBEE SODO!

    A good tea I see. Is that Pu-er? I absolutely love Pu-er.

    Ya know, omce Powermaster Optimus Prime was intended to have BOTH Hi-Q powermaster AND a ROLLER II headmaster which had its own altmode and became the super mode head, but then the head was replaced by a simple add-on part.

    Smog, if you are never wrong, just right in an opposing direction, it means you are never right, just wrong in another direction? Sorry for no multiquote, it's a noob's mistake.

    No big deal! I just thought I'd mention it :thumb 

    And I think it means that I often look at issues from multiple perspectives and play the devil's advocate, so even if I'm arguing against myself, I'm never really 100% wrong about anything :lol

    There was a Beast Wars Neo Action Master line? Wanna see Break and Dead End. They have dropped a kilo or two without their shells...

    Um... why are you still posting separately instead of in multiquotes? :redface2:

    More importantly, why does he seem to be trapped in 2017?

    About time: in Russia, most KO's arrive some yerars later.
    About multiquote: I forget, not used to forums. When I want to make a cool joke, I tend to forget 'bout multiquote. My only internet communication experience is Youtube comments.

    Welcome to the boards and please use the multiquote feature. It just makes it easier for others to read and navigate the boards. It is easy to. Just click the "+Multiquote" button to select the posts you want to add. Then at the Quick reply box at the bottom of the page where you would normally reply, hit the "Insert Quotes..." button located on the lower left. Then hit the "Quote These Messages" button and you are set. You can also ask any online staff member for assistance as well.

    Now back to our regularly scheduled Knock Offs...

    That's a bit mean, maybe?

    Guys, sorry for all my misdeeds. I am just a Russian guy, wanting to be a part of community. Yes, I may seem ******ed or time-displaced, but outdated Kos such as dong men, Fhreighterpans, Shuttle Voltrons, Action Master Big Convoy and unknown-brand Hulkie KOs are still found in Russia MISB/MOSC, and not just in second-hand stores, but everywhere, even on the same shelves as official TFs. So I often visit 2017-2018 pages of forum, because I know that 2017-2018 KOs are among the newer hauls in stores. And yes, I am weird.

    Sounds like you have some great finds still available in your area.

    Welcome to the club! Most of us have to search forever to find certain things.

    Hey, anyone owns that KO of Generations Sandstorm which is very common sight at AliE (for example here -> US $13.98 20% OFF|WEI JIANG 22CM Big Size Transformation G1 Anime Action Figure Toy Boy Plastic Dinosaur Vehicle Military Model Classic Kids Toys|figure toy|wei jiangaction figure toys - AliExpress )?
    Any opinions, is it worth it? It doesn't seem simplified, the paint applications seem slightly different and it's missing clear plastic, but I'm okay with these "flaws" as long as it's not simplified and tolerances are ok.
    Does this KO's mould-mate - Springer - exist?

    Amazing to see figures that sat on shelves for awhile that are now very desirable. I was just messing around with sandstorm the other day. I think I like him better than springer.

    I know...springer is good. But sandstorms alt modes are fantastic.

    Yes, I have a Shuttle Voltron with a Kyoryuken GAWD HOARN (RENJAA SHOUT, patent p.), but there are 2 major differences from yours:
    1. He has a Bay Bee head and color.
    2. He is by an unknown company named XuiJingTzu (no translation available).
    Sorry, no pics. On a vacation away from my collection.

    Also, I can give you the photos of Devy (the Hulkie KO I mentioned).

    Got one recently. Applied some paint to the head and various tiny details.
    Found in a dollar store, bought for 8 bucks, head does not transform, no Cog or guns. Elevator, second door in the prison, the cockpit and fist guns lost in simplification. All door intact, articulation and modes are the same. The head is a plastic piece which attaches to the torso by sliding over a separate connector which is a head in its own. Through model clay application to the bigger head, it can hold the smaller head upside down in a crude robot mode. But better than other things at that store.

    I have this and like it a lot. The plastic is cheaper but durable enough. The only simplification on mine was the joint that allows the legs to collapse inward a little bit for his transformation. It turns out he transforms just fine without it. He's also a little oversized, just about a head taller than the official version. I've never seen a Springer ko, which is a shame .

    Happen to have a Megatron with geewun toy head and a projector scope which projects an image of a garishly blue anti-aircraft tank

    I am a happy owner of a legends size Green Galvatron and Red Cyclonus.

    Anybody have much experience with the CCB Defensor KO, or where to buy the single limb robots? I’ve got the legit CW Hot Spot, but finding his limbs in the UK for a reasonable price isn’t going so well (especially Groove!) I wouldn’t usually do KOs so I’m not sure where to start with picking them up.

    I’ve found them here, just wondering if anyone’s ordered from these sellers and whether it’s a good deal:

    Thanks, I guess I'll grab him then :) .

    One more question - anyone knows if there are variants of LS-01 (Ares Nitrogen - KO of Nitro Zeus)? It seems that there's LS-01 and LS-01s (the latter had more paint and seems sold out everywhere) but what bugs me are prices - these range from ~$45 up to ~$75, what the fudge? Such price discrepancy is suspicious...
