Kablamo, there's a new KO of Generations Warpath in the works BLAMO.
This figure was brought to our BOOM attention by Transformers-Galaxy's, a Hong Kong based Transformers fan group, Facebook page. They have posted a small gallery of two examples, we have mirrored two images, if you want to see the rest just click the following images BAM.

The album title says that these are 12 cm tall, the original Generations Warpath is 14 cm tall, making these KOs just about a head shorter. BLAM

Yes, but he has knees and swivel joints in his arms, he's more BLAMO for your buck :P

Luckily they're noticeably different from the real thing.

Wow, I've seen some KO packaging that steals actual designs and photos (ignoring near-exact replicas) but those one goes really far with the blatant copy-pasting without actually using the real lay-out. There's even a difficulty scale, Reveal The Shield and a correct character photo.

I found the pictures of jintoys.com, but they are a wholesaler, they don't sell individual toys. You'd have to set up an account with them, possibly in Chinese, and then purchase a case of them.

the silver one looks pretty cool, guess ill have to start checking the dollar stores again since the places that would always get KO transformers are either gone or dont carry them anymore.

I kinda like that gray one, even (especially[?]) if that green on the head sort of makes it look like an exposed brain (or robot equivalent).

I'd guess they were made to take advantage of Warpath not appearing in stores, but he's actually gotten some distribution since last year.

That would be correct: he reappeared along with Wheeljack in the same case as Sky Black Shadow and Junkheap Junkyard.

Went through hell tracking down an authentic Warpath and wouldn't trade the frustration for the ease of getting a KO. Not the least bit impressed with the KO and thoroughly disgusted with companies that produce KO's and try to pass them off as authentic. These people are nothing more than thieves and con-artists. Petty criminals that haven't the guts and the talent to create something worthwhile on their own. They are parasites and shame on all of you who support their "work".

Sorry to be so contrary, but you made several mistakes.

1. This KO is not "easy" to get ahold of. You'd have to import it from China, and no online stores stock it, which means going to China to buy it! Meanwhile the real Warpath toy is in local stores in the USA.
2. No one is passing them off as "authentic", they are OBVIOUS copies.
3. No one here is a "parasite", nor do they need to be "shamed".

I wouldnt mind that grey ko a couple of decepticon stickers and i can see him fitting in

I also like that white skyhammer give him some decepticon stickers and a couple of touch ups ill be happy to give them a home

I will never be ashamed of buying a KO TF i support all 3rd party work and even if these warpaths & co are on the cheap ko side always good for repaints and kit bashing.
