    Default Funny Transformer Ripoffs & KOs

    I'm not sure if this is the right place for this thread, but I wanted to have a thread where we discuss all the hilariously bad Transformer rip-offs we've seen in stores.

    I remember going into Red Dot once and seeing one that transformed into an F1 car. The font and packaging was similar to a real TF, but it was called 'Transformable Robot'. Not as catchy IMO.

    The best one ever was at WA Salvage though. I saw one that transformed into a particular kind of dinosaur, and the name of it was 'Euplocephalus Bot'! Yeah, kudos for getting the alt-mode into the name, but shouldn't the name be something that kids can read and pronounce fairly easily?

    Your turn!

    the best i saw used the deluxe armada optimus prime mold.
    from memory there were 7 or 8 versions, all with different trailer parts, for example one was dump truck, another had some sort of earth moving equipment.

    the best part of all this though? i saw them in Big W Blacktown (western Sydney) a couple months ago, i should've bought a couple of them.

    i saw them very recently too, they were all the same just with a trailer attachment to make them slighlty different from each other

    Were these genuine or KOs? I've seen Big W (or was it K-Mart?) selling KOs alongside genuine TFs which makes me scratch my head...

    No, it's not. I've moved it into the non-TF section

    - Blue Microchange MC-04 (02) Familia 1500XG (that's the pre-TF Bumblejumper)

    To be fair, this isn't about 'giving publicity to KOs'. It's more about mocking them for being so bad.

    Also, the ones I mentioned weren't even based on real TF moulds AFAIK. They were just a lame imitation of Transformers, not pirated versions of real ones.

    Yes, I'm aware. I mentioned this so you know _why_ I moved it
