They were $14 (which is weird for a KO to be almost 3 times the price of the original), at an Asian store in Brisbane.

The store on the corner outside Kmart Chaddy sells KO Kreons. Not sure about these particular ones. There's also a store in Knox which sells the KO Lego mini figs and may have these too.

I remember that place. They had KO AOE figures last time I was there.

Last time I went to Parklea Markets, there was this entire section dedicated to KO Lego

It's been a while but I think it was at one of those variety stores at Broadmeadows Shopping Centre or Roxburgh Park.

I haven't seen them in any other shops

Casting resurrect here

Found a bunch of store-branded knockoffs at the grand opening of Miniso (a Daiso type store) at my local shopping centre.

These included oversize CW legends and Cybertron Hardtop

Someone's asleep at their legal department. Stocking the odd knockoff you might get away with but to put your own store branding on KO products is just inviting litigation.

That is ballsy... and some amusing names for their toys - Skywalker Transformation Toy for Optimus. It's like they are trying to pick a fight with both Hasbro and Disney with the one product.

I like how their Powerglide used to be a Gundam pilot (Char Aznable) and how Bumblebee has taken on the name of a bot that hates him (Waspinator).

I think these guys went to the trademark school of "f*** it"
