    I've been unsuccessful so far today in finding anything that could help me differentiate between the real ones and the KO's produced awhile back.

    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    basically, if its in like new shape, odds are its a knockoff. those figures are hard to find loose, much less in package.

    I don't think these are the same type of KO's we're seeing now. This might fall into the "official press, but never destroyed when the factory closed" category.

    The dead give away on these was the Chinese lettering on the upper right hand corner.

    (but these stickers can be removed, leaving a residue)

    Also, a section of the techspec, under the stats, might be blacked out. It'll look like a portion of the white text which states the hasbro address and copy rights has a black bar running though it. Like on the Seaspray posted below.

    see how the white text just ends? That should run from corner to corner on the real ones.



    As far spotting a "bad" figure ... it'll be next to impossible. These are made from legit molds and are takara / hasbro stamped.

    That picture was taken a long time ago. You won't see a display like that again.

    What's the quality of these? I've suspected they were different than the current wave of knockoffs, but is there a discernible difference compared to an original figure?

    Any and all info. is greatly appreciated.

    Nope. Squawktalk is missing the tabs.
