    If they're like the originals how can you tell for sure? There was the original releases in 1984, then they were rereleased in 1985 for people who missed them, that's why i'm bringing this up. Maybe the ones that people say are fakes are originals. How can you tell the difference?

    No, even the ones that came out in 85 had glaring differences from the KOs on the market today - the most notable of which is the box art and all the grey areas, and the toys themselves being painted differently or having different color accessories. Just check out the KO permanent thread and look at cyclonus - the differences are obivous.
