Saw this at my somewhat local cheap and nasty store.





Gotta love how, despite the packaging, these are actually not KO's at all. I also love how they both have a tonfa each and the slogan on the back of the card "Together with you in your happy childhood"

That 'Bumblebee' reminds me of this character...

I have a bit of a backlog of these

Somebody ripped off an activator????!



Advertising ripoff, but I think these are both technically original molds?


Jumbo sized legends for everybody. Like the box art though

Unlike the other toys, these are laudable attempts. Its says so on the packaging. There's also Ultramodern, but I'm not sure how they combine.

It's hard to tell, but the one on the left is probably a knockoff of G1 Skydive (maybe with a bit of Dreadwind thrown in.)

I love the way it tells us to 'COLLECT THE MALL'! As if we haven't been collecting the mall since 1984. :P

Wow no posts since 2012? I swear there was another one of these threads flying around with more recent postings

anyway, let the KreO ripoffs begin!



I'm surprised that Kreo is even worth knocking off, though the quality of the vacuum metallisation looks pretty good.

I think when the KO section was started after the last post of this topic, the "crazy KOs" get posted in there now as separate sightings/topics.

I might move this topic there as well, as I might have missed it when that section was created.

These KO Kreo dare to use the trademarked character names, but not the trademark of Transformers. Weird.

Just noting this previous posting, as this topic was probably started before we had a KO section to move it to... and since that section is used for information purposes not promotional purposes, I've moved it into there now. (and who says we can't have a bit of entertainment on the side, of the really bad ones)

Tiny, freakishly-white Hun-Grrr meets the real thing!





The fake one must have only had two R's in his name instead of 3
