    $50.00 for a KO. Not for me. I would like to know how they don't get their asses sued by Hasbro though.

    Hasbro: "What Happen?"
    Fans: "Someone set up us the auction."
    Ebay to Hasbro: "All your Prime are belong to us. You have to chance to reissue, make your time. BWAAAAHAHAHAHAHA!"

    holy crap!!! Thats scary. That means that people have to be very careful with MISB's. Sure, ive seen all the knockoff cassettes, but I should have realized that other g1s were on he way. Its pretty easy to do ko's nowadays, considering all the reissues that are out. If you just make a spiffy replica box, you can make an easy misb. of course no one here would do that since we all respect TFs, the TF market, and our fellow TF buyers...right!?!?!?! :Gouki:

    At least this guy admits it's not the real thing.... most of the others wont.

    ***Wonders how hard it would be to get one past AFA***

    With the KO Cyclonus there was the small tell on the flap with the 2 Asian characters. On the cassettes, the tell was they were packaged on the wrong side from thier names. Any tell's yet by looking at the package to know that Prime is a KO?
