    I believe it's a KO- lunchtime specials don't come in packaging, although it's possible that he could have taken a lunchtime special figure and placed it in a KO box to look more impressive from a sales standpoint.

    Still, that seems unlikely.

    Considering the seller, the 12 he had originally (some sold) and the news we had a week or two about this figure coming soon, it's definitely the KO. Shouldn't this be in the news section?

    I like the transparent tires.

    Yeah, its the KO. I think I'll get mine from Spencer, but the price really isn't that bad.

    the windows aren't really orange though, they're tinted. it honestly looks like ultra magnus' windows.

    Limited to 500? Someone had to be seriously busy during their lunchtime, I'd have to say it's a KO. And if that's true...then I doubt they'll limit it in anyway.

    The state of KOs is such that even the KO companies have limited exclusives in the form of redecos.

    Eww, just noticed the orange tint. Is anyone actually fond of that? It seems it would be tough to like, so not sure why they did it.

    As for the 'limited' run. That could be total bs, and if they did actually claim that, they're an elicit bootlegging company, I wouldn't hold them to their word (maybe their first run just happened to be 500 of these, with future runs to come if they sell well, we already know they've done the other bootlegs in multiple smaller runs).

    But also is 500-1000 figures really that few for a ko/bootleg? It's not like they're selling thoussands of these at retail or anything.

    Is it just me, or nowhere in the auction there's mention of this being a replica?

    That's bad.
