    Do not know whether has this been posted anywhere. But buyers beware, KO DOTM Fireburst Prime is out in the wild. Here is the link to spot the difference.

    FWD??3???KO ????OP?? - TF????? - HK-TF ???? - Powered by Discuz!

    The last pic mentioned that the KO cannot stand up properly and will fall because the joints are loose.
    It looks like almost the genuine thing from the surface, upon inspection, there are some mold differences, and the instructions looked like it is photocopied.

    Mods, if this has been reported, please close this thread.

    wish the axe was good. Then I 'd buy lots of KO for the axe if they were cheap.

    Guess I can't see the difference, one close up blurry shot looks like another close up blurry shot.

    It Doesn't really shock me too much that there are Ko's for DOTM. Compared to the previous 2 lines; DOTM is more simplified. plus there seems to be less kibble.
