Cool! I think when I got you

Cool! I think when I got you that blue car bootleg the store had a couple in this style packaging as well. I'm still kicking myself for not grabbing you the KO Super Gobot that was boxed as well. It was the Fairlady Z mold (Zeemon in Gobots?).

I always liked Hans-Cuff (not the name so much, but that was always a weak point for the Go-Bots) because he fit in with my Hot Wheels City by looking like a "legitimate" police car in alt mode. The non-KO version also has the ends of the front bumper as part of the arms, which I always thought made a cool set of "brass knuckles" in bot mode.

The genuine version is

The genuine version is actually a nice little toy, that I wouldn't mind owning.

Not all of these are that bad...

Yes, I own multiples of this toy by chance, and oddly I don't think I have ever come across the KO version. Spencer is right, it fit in quite well Hot Wheels/Matchbox wise.

Also, many other MRs were KO'd and sold on simple blister cards (tons of different ones). Some came both carded and boxed from either the same or different companies.

I never gave a whole lot of love to Go-Bots, Convertors, Remco stuff, etc. because I come from the Transformers side of the hobby, but I have had tons of them since I was a kid. Maybe it was because I didn't have many of the good ones, but since I have picked up more and more, you will see that many of the machine robo/go-bots were VERY intricate and deserve praise. One of my favorites is Flypaper (garbage truck, Japanese name escapes me at the moment). He is so unique for such a little bot and absolutely amazing. Definitely worth a look if you find a shiny one.
