Big Bad Toy Store Exclusive Transformers Prime Dark Energon Deluxe Knock Out

The Dark Energon series of Transformers Prime Deluxe and Voyager toys are exclusive to BigBadToyStore.com in the USA, though they are available at retail in some other countries.  The Voyager Optimus Prime and Megatron are set to come out soon.  I really hope this will not be the last series of Dark Energon toys.  I would love to see a second series of Deluxe Soundwave, Vehicon, Ratchet, and Arcee, and Voyagers Dreadwing and Bulkhead.

Knock Out looks awesome in translucent green, translucent purple, and black.  It’s a much better paint job than the original version, which I didn’t like at all.  Still wish they would paint the tip of his staff.  Also of note, the black pieces on his shoulders are purple on the box art and photographs.  It’s quite common for the box art and photographs not to match the toy.  I wish they had, it would have looked nice.  He could have used a little purple paint on his legs too.  I love the Decepticon logo on the pink X.

Thanks for reading!

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
