    I know it's a KO. But is it a rare KO? I looked on ebay and there aren't any of them there to rate his value. I was thinking of opening it, but didn't want to if he's worth something.

    For those wondering, he's smaller than the regular Primal, and bigger than the robot masters version. I don't have the BWX version yet, but I'd imagine he's about the size of him.

    by now? yeah, i could say its kinda rare, but he was extremely available almost everywhere a few years ago

    Quality is kinda bad, the worse and more fragile pieces are the elbows. None of the panels (like arms or cannons) of the larger version open, and obviously the munkky head doesnt flip for the chest plate

    Hmm. I used to have one like that... though I don't think it was this one exactly as the colours look off. Mine was actually very decent quality. But yeah... don't see that on EBay much anymore.

    So how much do you think it's worth? Enough to keep it MOSC? If it's only a few dollars, I'd like to open it for kicks and giggles. To paint him up right and pose him with the regular and RM versions.

    That's where'd Id be stuck as well, deciding to open or not. Really don't know what to tell you on that one, sorry lol

    Maybe find a loose incomplete BW Primal to paint so you won't be stuck with painting KO grade plastic. But not sure how well ko's hold the paint

    Should IG open it?

    Send it to AFA along with your $100 payment and they'll tell the world it's worth $400. :D 

    Otherwise, I'd be shocked if it was over $10.

    Keeping knockoffs sealed is just crazy.

    And I should know.

    Thing is, I want to open this one because it's a different size than the real BW Primal. I think it would look cool displaying him in 3 different sizes. That's why I want to paint this one so he'll match them.
