I generally don't care for bootlegs/KOs unless they offer something different from the originals, but these definitely fall into the "different" category. They were fun retakes on the classic Dinobots, thanks for the recap of this and the link to the Grimlock version!

Diecast knockoffs like this one were used to be sold cheaper than their real counterparts of yesteryear--nowadays they're considered as jewels in the collectible market. Personally, I find it fascinating & ironic that value of these toys are on par with the wildly expensive transforming mecha 80s toys.. You would think that that their lowbrow quality would be in favor of the budget-conserved demographic.

I love these knockoffs so much

I love these knockoffs so much. You can see the care put into every aspect of the design revisions - with the exception of those "missiles" embedded in the wings, the new parts mesh perfectly with the aesthetic of the original toy.
