    Okay, I brought the above item thinking it was a good deal. Later, thanks to some fellow members, I realized it was a KO. I do feel kind of stupid because I paid for it right off the bat. The seller doesn't accept returns so there is no way to go that route. Is there anything I can do to get my money back?

    Contact the seller and let him know it's a KO. He might not have known. If that doesn't work, contact eBay and tell them he is selling a bootleg item as legit.

    I just emailed the seller. Can anyone tell if his other items are KOs?

    What is the tell that it's a KO? It looks real to me.

    If you really want to get rid of it, I'll buy it off you for what you paid (assuming it isn't broken or really, really crappy).

    First off Skar is the wrong color (his chest isn't gold)

    Same deal with Knok

    I'm cool with that. I'll still buy it off you if you're forced to take it.

    The main robot, missile, and chest piece may be legit, but the Powermasters aren't.

    Seller says: Manufacturer: Hasbro / Takara if you probe that this it not a real takara figure you can reply this to seller and if he don't want to solve this to you then you must start a dispute arguing tha this was no takara figure means not as descrived.

    If I'm forced to take it I might keep it, $31.11 isn't too much.

    If the seller isn't willing to work with you, file and escalate a Paypal dispute. Choose either significantly not as described or the item was a counterfeit. Make sure to give a detailed explanation. It's, say, 99% guaranteed you'll win the dispute, but will be out the cost ship the product to the seller (not as described) or Paypal themselves (counterfeit), depending on how you file the dispute.

    Well I got a reply, I'll remove the guy's name.

    Hmm... What do I make of this ? He did point out the problem that I found(Knok & Skar).
    He is offering a full refund, should I take it ?

    I dunno dude, you won't be able to buy a complete original one for that money and it looks like a close facsimile. I'd keep it and for the future just keep in mind with eBay, if it looks too good to be true it probably is.

    In the email he pointed out Knok and Skar's color schemes, was he trying to cover up the fact he tried to sell a KO or is there some variant I'm not aware of ?
