Sorry for posting this separately (and for the compressed image) the forum would only let me post one 1MB image per post
Hello and welcome to the forum.
Yeah 1mb is the attachment size limit, thanks to us being cheap and unwilling to pay for more. There's also a limit to the number of attachments overall which we're fast approaching so you're lucky it accepted them at all!
I use Flickr for my images, decent and free for a reasonable number of pics - 1TB iirc.
Thanks for letting me know : ) (and for the welcome) I'll set up a Flickr account. The Optimus KOs honestly pretty good for what it is. Starscream is less so. If he'd been better I probably would have also picked up one of the white ones hanging up in the first picture as well.
For reference the only others they had were the KO bumblebees movie in the first picture and a few 2007 movie legends primes.
Both the KO deigns and the smaller seemingly original designs say there were made by PMS seemingly in (or for its not clear )the UK.
Surprisingly at a traders stall at a car boot sale about a week later. I found the exact same toys with identical plastic colours and paint, with the only differences being different packaging and a fantastically stupid name.
So I give you........................
In case the image refuses to load that's what they are actually called it seems.......
The box does also proudly proclaims the smaller slogans of
CAR PEOPLE TURNED

I also found next to the carbots these reduced to £4 Roborg Metamorphosis figures, which I have never seen before. Annoyingly they don't picture the actual robot mode anywhere at all on the box (excluding the artwork), so Until I found one upside down and loose in its box I want certain they properly transformed at all.
Before buying one I did try to search for any information, or images about them online and could find nothing whatsoever even searching on the site of the company which apparently made them.
The closest thing I could find were (annoyingly I cant find it again now, but it was an aliexspres page showing multiple different transforming cars of this type, with a video showing off some auto playing on it).
This looks like it uses the same mold, as one of the cars pictured on the back of the Roborg box (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1000003558594.html)
This ones not to bad as a background genericon and all parts of the car body except the roof are diecast.
The spoiler has to be removed to separate the legs, but if it was cut in half this would not be necessary. I'm not sure why they did not make it that way.
The only potential issue is you are supposed to remove the roof and have it act as a shield, but its held in place to securely. However I think it looks fine it attached anyway.
Sorry for all the large posts I did't expect to suddenly find so much.

I believe that was the FOC Bruticus that was headless, unless the overseized Defensor was the same.
My locla B&M has had the Combaticons back instock for a while in the 2 for £20 range, and has also had the odd Protectobot instock as well. So they are the same ones from a couple of years ago, possibly just in different packaging.
I only ever handled the Rook mould which had next to no articulation. The arms in robot mode were stuck in jazz hand position.
Good bye dancing Jazz. May you continue to dance for ever some where else.
