    Pretty sure those are the only characters we've seen as KOs so far. I was really hoping for a nice Blitzwing (OS or otherwise) but nothing yet.

    Sure would be nice to see a better quality KO of that OS IF Tarn...

    Right??

    It's extremely rare to get (decent) KOs of IF stuff... but I'd love an OSKO of the DJD team.

    I'm still not sure actually. I've never seen a real Botbot and size comparison pics seem to hard to find. But the game controllers are retools I think.

    It's remoulded quite a bit they added a removable blade and arm articulation, the shoes also have laces as spectacles the originals don't have.
    But yes that is over sized. The original ones are about the same size as a KO Micromaster. (But smaller than a Modern Hasbro Earthrise Micromaster)

    I've always wanted those - last time I saw them being mentioned they were provided with a T-shirt in a clothing store.
    I have no idea where i'd be able to get them though - that is just the sort of things that would have shown up in the toy section of a discount clothing retailer that used to be in a near town to me, but they shut now - bet they'd have had them though.

    I love the way the colours are complementary to various pre-existing Beast Wars toys but not identical.

    They slapped Autobot symbols on these so I bought them :) 

    IMG20210707105605_Autobot_Symbol_Pencil_Sharpeners.jpg

    Yeah that brown plastic won't survive anything. Just the inertia force of the delivery truck stopping at a stop sign will do it lol

    (on my listings I say they'll probably break (I don't think this was bought from me)).

    Thanks for the intel. I hope whoever gets these posts size comparison pics with the real ones.

    Yeah, it was ordered off Aliexpress from a dude who found a whole case of New Old Stock Thunderclash KOs. He packaged it horribly so it busted. u ^ u
    I'm assuming you'd package it at least a little better - at least from the experience I had with your Fire Chief sale. :p

    Is there a decent OS KO Dinobot II that has been released at any point?

    Just got Jinbao Flame Devil via @tfsafari. It looks awesome and not too hard to transform.

    I've had my eye on that for a while. I've found the normal IF stuff too pricey for what you get but I've got an OSKO legends overlord i deeply love.

    My KO Doubledealer arrived. Not terrible. Cheap and cheerful. Even came with a set of Autobot stickers, although the plastic is a bit shiny and the mould simplified with no Powermaster unlocking mechanism, just a slot. Definitely worth paying to have them shipped in pack though. The packaging was pretty poor, as with the ruined Thunderclash.

    Well, I knew what I was getting into when I ordered it, based on Paul's warnings in the past, but I rolled the dice anyway. Sorry you didn't have better luck, but you probably won't be alone!

    I guess I should be expecting my pile of dust any day now.
