    The real thing doesn't say C-888. It would say C-348.

    Also to note:

    1) The Wings won't fit into the holes of Dai Atlas shoulders/arms nicely.

    2) KO piece doesn't come with working electronics.

    Adding on to what Auto has mentioned..

    I can't seem to find any printing of Takara on the box, and at the back, bottom-right corner says "Made In China"

    Not that the toys can't/shouldn't be made in China, but its font size is a lil bigger than it should and very blatant in location and visual-appearance.

    And lastly, there's the Micromasters logo AWOL-ed at the top right corner of the box

    I bought one of these a long while back not realizing it was a KO. Fool me once...

    At least the seller is straight up about it being a knockoff.

    EDIT: To add to what's been said here...the paint on the part that becomes the nose in vehicle mode should be silver. In the KO the color is white. You can see the white in one of his pictures (the one with Dai-Atlas in his insert) and the pictures of the vehicle mode on the box show it as silver.

    One of the better knockoffs out there. Though that grey micromaster sucks. :lol  I had this one and the Sonic Bomber knockoff. I don't think Roadfire was ever made into a knockoff.
