It appears that another kind of KO can be added to the list.
Large size Knock Off versions of World's Smallest Transformers Prowl, and World's Smallest Transformers Red Alert have been found at Big Lots.
Read the full siting here along with pictures of these interesting KOs.
As always keep an I peeled towards the Seibertron.com Toy News Section for more information on vintage, Knock Off, and New Transformers' Toys news.

They have a "Military Fighter" set which is double sized minicon jets and tanks, and a "Construction-Bots" which are 16 variants of small bendy Armada Prime as construction vehicles. (Optimus Prime as a Crane, Optimus Prime as a tow truck, Optimus Prime as a garbage truck, etc. Seriously, they made 16 variants of Armada Deluxe Prime!)
All these toys are about scout size (whether they were minicons, WST or Deluxes before) and sell for $2.50.
Here are pictures of three of the giant Mini-Cons from the Military Fighters set from the same company, also showing up at Big Lots. - and also one of the shrunken Armada Prime knockoffs they sell.

Go to the right flee market, general, or closeout store and you can find plenty fo guys who sadly just won't make it through the night.
Collecting is something I enjoy and I care for my bots. Still smashing, inpailing, and burning, are things I enjoy as well!

I'm sorry, I could have been clearer. I only meant it reminds me of RID Prowl because the colors of the KO remind me a bit of those early Universe repaints. Definitely not the same mold though.

I was just in Big Lots, though not for toys. I should have taken a look...
