    So, I just hit 'BUY IT NOW' for a 'City Commander Armor' set cause I missed it and this was only $70. Well, of course AFTER I freak over the 'deal', I see in the listing the seller sez '...this MIGHT be the KO version...' Hrm. :/
    Sooo, is there a KO version of the TFX-01? I know technically the thing is kinda of a KO since it's 3rd party, but did I just step in a $70 bear trap? Anyone have one or know anything about this item? Any help would be appreciated!

    How good were the pictures provided with the auction?
    Try and zoom in on the paint job. If it's nice and clean and doesn't show brush strokes or touch-ups, you got yourself a legit version. Also, If when you do receive the Armor, try it on and see how it fits. There should be no gaps and everything should click in, nice and tight. Also look for gaps in the trailer.

    Thanks so much for the help!
    Of course the pic is of just the box. o_O  The box looks legit, and the seller stated that he's ''not sure'' if it's a KO or not. Which is prob a slick way to say it is. Hrmmm...

    a KO does exist. So it will probably be the KO version. The seller covered his ass with that note. You bought it hoping it was the real one, and if its a KO, you can't take action against him for having a misleading auction.

    yes, did reissue but it came with the addon missiles launchers and gun. If im not mistaken, the KO doesnt include the addon... mostly likely a KO or maybe its used from the first version from 2008
    the new reissue has 2009 on the box

    It probably is the KO version, but if it's solely for display purposes (which the original should be as well) then it should be fine. I have the KO Shadow Commander trailer and the only issue I notice with it are some loose forearms, but that's it.

    It's a knock off, because the seller is selling more than 10 & he's selling ko shadow commander too. But he did mention it in his descrition, so can't blame him. Just got to read the auction first, before you bid. But yes it's the ko version for sure. Btw the ko city commander is total crap. The shadow commander ko is better. Do a search on this site for ko city commander and see for yourself.

    The shadow commander supposely got improved on in the iterations of KO so the ones that you can buy off the factory now should be decent quality.

    I was looking into the KOs but then found an amazing deal for the real thing (almost as cheap as KO and yes, it is not a KO)

    That said, I did a lot of research and came to the conclusion that the KO CC in general is viewed as inferior in quality to the KO SC.
