The quality of that KO looks really good. I wonder how the stickers fair vs reprolabels.com own.

Not surprised. KOs still sell even though everybody knows (some don't) know what they are...Cheaper alternative to the original.

@ Azrael...that's not a hard part, you'll get there.

Thats great news. And yes the stickers are every bit as good as the original. I have a full set of G1 Stunticons but will love to have a new set to display and I can lock my originals away from the dust. Hope they come in a repro display box like the constructicons do.

I was actually thinking that the stickers of the KO was the easiest way to tell it's not legit - look at the yellow and red stripe sticker on Dragstrip's arm. It's shorter than the legit one.

Of course this is meaningless if someone buys a Reprolabels set as these are closer to the original.

Aside from the stickers, this is going to be very hard to tell apart from the original. Hopefully, TFW or Highendtf's will have a guide up soon.

Yeah I'm hoping there will be small mould differences too, most likely the face - look at springer or scourge KO thers faces look terrible.

More KO's means more questions for sellers, buyers have to be more careful and so it goes on. Lucky im finished collecting or I would never start now.

No matter what people say a KO does taint anyones G1 collection(and the sometimes the seller), its like a rotten vegetable in the bottom of a fridge.

You're absolutely right. If I were still collecting, I'd NEVER settle for KOs...they absolutely do taint collections...people will buy whatever they will for their collections, but real is real and fake is fake

Damn that looks so real. Gotta think about it though, why are they making deadend and wildrider all of a sudden?

As for telling apart, the minty-ess of it should be a givaway. Plus did they do the other vehicle weapons too or not?

No idea - my guess it will come out in a giftset like devestator or defensor. Fingers crossed they also mess up the art work somewhere
