    Hi,

    can anyone help?

    I've been looking at the below and trying to figure out if it is an official G1 19080's release with an error having the wrong coloured cassette (per the toys at that time, not getting into that debate).

    Does anyone know if this is a genuine G1 release or a KO?

    Cheers

    Doucoo

    That Price tag is what confuses me... I've never seen a KO with such an old Price tag on it you know?

    Its a KO. The shiny rivets instead of dark/black ones are a clear indicator.

    I've seen this and intentionally worn packaging, attempting to give an aged appearance many times on eBay. People are dicks.
