Found out that Starfighter's 'bomb' is actually the second bit of his gun (thanks to son, who spotted this immediatly!). This means that Starfighter would definitely give Cliffjumper - the robot, not our Cliffy - a run for his money on the really totally ginormous weapons and associated psychological problems front.

Tahukanuva: Didn't know that. Have no Robot Masters. I was also thinking about the War Within future vision of Megs and Prime battling on the Sherman dam.

UPDATE Another trip to the shops and another one of these guys captured. I got myself a Formula yesterday and Im well happy with it(really like the head sculpt on this one)
This got me thinking about which actual Transformer (series/name of character) these are a knock-off of.
Can anybody supply this info???

They're lifted from the Robot Masters line - Formula is Rijie, or Mirage to anyone with an ounce of sense.

Yeh, I'm surprised my site has Transformers content too.

The other ones are Robot Masters, as well, except for Lockheed. He's a knockoff of Armada Thrust.

Has anyone spotted these in the states? I'd love to have the Starscream KO for cheap. Sounds like this is only in the UK though

Check teh ebay. They're usually less than $10 shipping and all. If you want one that much, I've been meaning to pick up a Prime to kitbash/repaint.

I don't know. I couldn't find one on eBay. If you could get a link or something.

Are you guys still seeing these in stores? I have yet to see a Starscream KO like this on eBay...if anyone would be willing to grab me one and ship it to the US I'd gladly trade something from my trade list for one of the Screamer KO's.

They hadn't got 'em last time I was in a branch, and all of the stock had moved around. Will grab a Prime and a SS in case anyone wants if I see either.

Can you downsize the signature, please. It's 300 as a max height including images and text.

There were chuns of the things in Leicester Poundland on Friday. School Easter hols now on, so they might be sadly depleted by Monday when I get back there - but anyone who desperately wants one (can't guarantee which, though), let me know and I'll go grab for sending forth.

I have 3 Tractor Trailers - one is yours, martyboy70 - and am now waiting for more stock to arrive in Poundland. Stripped out by the children on the Easter break, as expected.

pm me if you want one of the other two I have.

I wish those were around in the US. Big Lots still has plenty of the G1 gestalt limbs KOs and that series of Beast Wars KOs, but nothing as cool as those.
