    You need to be very careful when buying superion. There're alot of KO ones out there with sticker rubsigns. And I don't see any rubsigns on this one you won.(It's kind of rare for all five aerialbots to lost their rubsigns)

    You'll have to report back with the copywrite stamp info when you get these in. I'm guessing either the seller stripped the stickers and applied repros or these could even be euro classics.

    There's a good chance that's a KO, and a low-quality KO at that. I've purchased it for $10. The complete lack of rubsigns is suspect.
    I'd speak with the seller first. They may not be aware that the product is a KO.

    Looks legit to me. You really won't know unless you either ask the seller for stampings or when you get them. The quality and mold lines matches a real g1. I hope they are real for ya.

    They have already been shipped so I will find out when I get them. They look legit to me to. I did some deep comparisons with known g1 pics. But I will know for sure soon.

    IF that thing is legit, then he hardly got ripped off buddy. That's a fair price for an incomplete g1 combiner.

    Excellent. Is there any sticker residue to indicate the removal of the rubsigns?
