*flips through the catalog*

I must say Happy Well has come a long way from KO's. Some of their ideas are actually quite nice:

- magnetic three mode build-a-bot sets
- triplechanging X-bots
- Goal-Bots or "Soccer Label" with transforming soccer balls, shoes and outfits :lol:

And I see they still have KO's in their line-up. O well.

2) RiD Landfill (Heavy Load acquired)
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

Can someone please give me some input on KO Wonderfest Black Convoy? Was it "crystal" black or just "straight" black? I really appreciate the help all! :VEHI:

Haven't posted any of my toy hauls in a while, here's what I got lately,

Seacons, haven't opened them yet to see what the quality is like

Lighter lol, shampoo bottle plastic

Cylinder, I've seen what look like better quality ones around, after opening I noticed this one the quality is not so good, must be a KO of the better ones.

Micromasters, I think I've completed my collection of colour variations now,

and while in another city, found 2 mini Predakings, been on the shelf since 2008, when I saw them the first time in that store.

And on a side note, some other wacky toys I got in China,

theres 2 versions of wonderfest convoy

theres the KO Henkei version which is a direct replica of the 1 that got cancelled

Then theres CRYSTAL Henkei Wonderfest convoy. Hes basically the CLEAR version of wonderfest convoy - al la Henkei Clear Convoy but in the wonderfest colours

i have had clear wonderfest convoy sat on my shelf now for about 2 months and im really really happy with him. He goes very well next to clear ko henkei prime. I like him much more than the SDCC optimus we were given in the classics line. All thats good for is the shadow commander kit

Most of the knockoff Transformer come from the OEM toy factory from China. I just get the Omega Supreme Energon but with the head of Omega sentinel it exactly from the original molding and the cannon still function as the same as original rotate with same direction and with the sound & led light on when rotate the cannon. It just cost me less that USD 8.00. I stick it with the original autobot sticker it look perfect. I do some repainted job for the knockoff Transformer to make it look original( since from the original mold)Beast World Knockoff T-Rex Megatron just cost less than USD 3.00 , especially for me with low budget in keeping them. I do buy some original from toy shop especially on special edition ie like the disney special edition.

I'm so jealous of all the awesome knock offs everyone finds in the UK we never get anything that cool or it could be just the area I live in

http://i636.photobucket.com/albums/uu82 ... /gal23.jpg Is there anyway to buy these considering KOTOYs is gone now? I really wanted to do a major kitbash on this!
