    Hey everyone, I just picked up a BT-16 Skids, but I'm suspecting a KO. How can I tell the difference between the Takara and a KO?

    It's very hard to know if it's a KO or if there even is one. The differences are extremely small. There was one way that I remember reading. There is a small number stamp on the inside of the roof section. The number was 071023. If it's the same number as the 'KO' version then it probably is the KO. There was also some speculation as to whether they actually were KO's, instead they may have been QC rejects, due to some missing/misplaced headlights and other stuff. This is uncannily similar to the HA Barricade "KO's".

    Here is the link for a detailed analysis:
    Cybertron Philippines - Binaltech Skids Review - Is it ko or not?

    I checked mine a while ago and my number is different to that stated, luckily for me I bought 2 when they were dirt cheap, probably because people were scared of buying a KO :D
