    I recently acquired some Devastator parts (I am trying to put together a complete G1 vintage Devastator - i.e. no re-issue or knock off bots/parts) and I'm pretty sure they are not original G1. However, I'm not sure what they are from - are they KO or re-issue or something else? Anybody know?

    Please see the attached pic below - the parts in question are on the left compared to the authentic G1 part on the right. The differences are subtle but are present. For example, on the part on the left, the screws are silver (as opposed to black), the green is brighter, and there are notches/grooves that aren't (or are) on the right one. So what is this - anybody know? My guess is KO (based on the stickers on the green shield piece) but I'm not sure.

    Thanks in advance!

    Definitely looks like KO, that plastic is far too shiny.

    Is there a different in density? If it's a LQ KO it'd be lighter in feel.
