Totally Awesome...

Josh this thing rocks! I can just imagine how bad the plastic quality is, but the crazy colors make it pop nonetheless. Crude, yes, as many KOs are. I am not a big Combattler fan, but the whole Combattler/Clover Gundam/random bot mash up is just awesome and man a window box with presentation flap on a KO? Oh my! Any toy that has a ride on space cruiser is a winner in my book! Great find and thanks to Dave as well for having his input.

NO GEARS

Combattler's head and Gundam's torso... it feels so wrong...

At least it doesn't have gears. That would be REALLY upsetting.

This definitely looks right

This definitely looks right at home in my display! Thanks again for hooking me up. It seems strange to me that there is an unpunched hole in the top as if this was meant to be hung on a peg.

Takara Timanic Nic Machine 2

The base parts for the vehicular part come from Takara's Timanic Nicmachine toy, which was also repurposed as Micronauts' "Hyperion" with some serious modification.

Josh-- thank you for reviewing such charming junk.

I really appreciate your reviews of clunky and unwieldy bootlegs--- these reviews are my favorites in that they enable me to enjoy various crummy and ill-conceived toys yet not spend any money on them nor feel badly for throwing them away (or flushing them, if they are small enough). Keep the clunky bootleg reviews coming!

...and count me in if you want to do a kickstarter campaign for a Josh B./Collection DX book on hideous bootlegs.
