    I used to have a KO that looked like that. Sold it to board member solscud007 so he still has it. He might be able to provide you with more info.

    But I think the KO was pretty close to the original.

    Its a knockoff look at the Fake red autobots symbol or red linny thing on the outside of the wings.

    its a KO, the wings should have autobots symbols.

    also flip down the chest of saber and it should say : takara co. ltd 1989

    It's a bootleg. As you mentioned the chest and head should be blue plastic not red, the stickers on the wings should be an autobot symbol, the copyright is in the inner flap, arms should be white with gray fists, pieces on the jet nosecone should be yellow not blue. Actually it's just easier for you to look at this page

    There's a guy on here named pred4ever thats I have bought from. Sold me some decent stuff but there was a little discrepancy on one item I got from him. Did the guy you buy the star saber from have a sale thread on here?
