New? Micromaster Knockoffs at Eckerd's

Postby Jestermon » Sat Nov 25, 2006 9:13 pm

Hey, drawn into the local Eckerd's by an add which claimed they had Classics on sale I was scouring around to see if they did, since I had seen some of the newer Cybertron stuff in other drug stores I thought maybe they might get the second wave and not even get the first.

But in my glee I found nothing, except these 2 knockoffs that are Rail Racer/Six train and Devastator/Sixbuilder, they are not in the best color schemes, but you get the whole set for 4.99, it said 5.99 on the box but I grabbed Sixtrain another after getting the first for the price of one real micromaster figure.

Also, he comes with some kind of crappy battleship transformer with no face, the other came with some other bot that was not part of the original team, they have all the pieces and are combined in the box, the plastic is pretty much the same as the real releases, they are the exact same, no mold degradation or changes.

They also have badly applied stickers which is neat because now I can use them to make a sticker template for my custom micromaster Computron I wanted to build.

I am going to put scans of the box up later but I have never seen these before online or otherwise.

Edit: Actually, the Sixtrain, is not the Rail Racer repaint but is a knock off of Sixliner, the figure that the Rail Racer Micromaster was based, he has the head from Sixliner not Sixtrain.

Sounds cool, I'm interested in these extra figures.

For the record, though, Rail Racer was a reissue of Sixtrain, not Sixliner.

Ya, I know I finally figured it out the other night, the head and a few train details are the only differences arent they?

I know which KO's your talking about. We had them at Biglots last year. The bonus robot that comes with them is a Gobot.
