The kids magazines at the supermarkets and newsagents are regulars with these KOs... at least once a year, and these were in Coles last week (Mania Magazine).
Oversized and modified Legends Optimus and Bumblebee.



I like the "allegiance" symbols on the packaging... reminds me of the Unicron "allegiance" that some ehobby toys had on a sticker sheet.

They had those at that dollar shop at the bottom of the footbridge at Hornsby. They had so many dodgy transformers there. They had some Beast wars figures there but I wasn't sure if they were KO's or legit figures. Never bought them and aren't sure if they are still there, but if the UMD movies are still at Target Carlingford, the Beast Wars KO's might still be there.

Not really funny (aside from the bad engrish on the box), but since this is an ongoing topic for KOs, this was at Garden City, at one of the kiosks in the centre of main walkway...



It's the over-sized movie KOs that I saw a lot of in Singapore a couple years ago.

I had to do a double take as I thought that said "methtech" on the box

Upscaled Huffer doesn't look too bad.

Those figures were EVERYWHERE at Paddy's Markets (no surprise since that's one of the places to find Transformer KO's) though oddly enough they were even inside Market City.

Also eariler this year while visiting Melbourne, I walked past this shop in Brighton and saw these figues.



The KO DOTM Optimus looks intresting, though closer inspection showed how poor the quality actually was, the AOE Optimus (which is actually the 1st movie) was meh since that mold has been done a lot, while the Bumblebee one is the best with it's catchphrase "Coming Today!" Yes Bumblebee you are coming today

Also what gets me is the fact most KO's have the handle on the box. Why exactly I don't know.

I was tempted by the Huffer, but I have all three versions of the mold in commander size. There was also a weird but kinda cool painted optimus. I was going to try to get a picture but the staff member started to wander over.
