Default Are these G1 Dinobots KO?

A seller has listed a bunch on ebay at the moment, but I noticed the yellow starburst doesn't seem to blend in with the crosshatching of the background on some of the just like many KO packages:

Grimlock is a "Bommander" so yep that's a fake.

And the starburst thing on Slag's box, combined with the seller selling a KO in the other auction, would lead me to say yes KO to both of them.

At a guess I'd say 'YES'.

Does that say 'BOMMANDER' on Grimlock's box?

I can't believe people are bidding on the Dinobot Bommander.

I have a feeling that the seller is the same one that sells KOs at the Parra Fair.

Does anything change on the page if someone reports it?

Searching for TF's on ebay is a minefield and collectors need to help each other and report these guys.

Yeah it's fake, because of the "Bommander" on box which Paul mentioned. Also it's too good to be true for "new" 1980s mint in box dinobots. If there is, they are very hard to find or are those super expensive AFA graded ones.

I think I might have to 'win' these, like I did with that Mirage.

The starbursts are also way overdone too. The black bar behind the "Transformers" logo beneath the front window is the wrong length too (too short).

Here's what a real G1 Grimlock box looks like:


And here's a KO:
