    I think he knows it's a knock off, and I believe the RiD Armorhide is there to provide scale.

    What he's asking is, WHICH KO is it? This doesn't look like any of the double-sized KO's we've seen previously. Likely he'd also want to know if the other Combaticons were knocked off as well, and what they, and the 2x Bruticus looks like.

    no stamps or anything. the only difference other than size and color is that he is missing the peg to hold the gun in the arm. also the wheels are differnt...they have like tiny little spikes.

    Looks to be one of the older ko's of the mold, as it looks like it's been threw a bit. Not really sure which ko it is, or when it was made. The Combaticon molds have been ko'd a good amount of times, including oversized, undersized, and normal sized ko's. There's a good chance, imo, that the other four were also ko'd when this one was made. I personally haven't seen any examples where only one or two of them were ko'd at the same time. Closest thing I've seen to that were the more recent regular sized ko's that came in two-packs, and Onslaught was the only one missing from the overall set. Though at the same time all five molds were ko'd in a 5-pack, along with pretty much every other TF gestalt of the era. Not sure if that's helpful at all, but at least it's more than just stating the fact that it's a ko.

    No problem. As for pictures of the oversized ko, they are a little hard to get ahold of, so pictures are slightly harder to find than normal. Here's two pictures of the more known oversized ko of them (you'll need to scroll down a bit to get to them).

    Google Image Result for http://img93.imageshack.us/img93/4672/brutsides4wy.jpg

    Personally this is the first time I've seen an oversized ko of any of the Combaticon molds in the colors you've found the one in, so I'm not sure how easy it'll be for anybody to find pictures of it. Basically, what you've found here is something not seen around here that often, or at the very least as far as I know.
