Korean KO Oversized G1 Cars, Part Deux

Found some more pics of the Korean oversized KO G1 Cars:

I think I may have finally managed to track down all of the figures in this line.  The Korean KOs really have great amazing retro box art, reminiscent of the old Transformers catalog art, which shouldn’t be a suprise given the Japanese influence on Korean pop art.  Their themes seem to draw influences from both US and Korean pop culture, which, during the 80s and 90s, was very much just a regurgitation of whatever was popular in the US a few years earlier.  These KOs are an interesting mashup on many levels, and are at least good for a laugh.
