    I know the toy has been seen before but this is the first time I have seen the BINALTECH style packaging being used even though the toy is closer to the plastic Alternator. This auction appears to include the BT instructions and trading cards. It looks like there are subtle differences to the packaging including a different faction logo and removal of TAKARA from the box.

    And I believe A3+ are selling this at half that price...

    Isn't that how much a real one would cost? I mean I bought the Alternator Prowl at retail for 20 bucks, seams insane to pay 6 dollars more+shipping for a KO. Is it even diecast?

    Not that I'm aware of, but it would suprise me if they didn't make those colors... plus others.


    It's also a matter of creating awareness of counterfeit product. KOs have been around before TF G1. Example. I don't think that you can really stop them, you can only remind people that what they are seeing is not what they are getting. IMHO cheap KOs are good for kitbashing and replacement of some broken /missing parts.

    I think there are going to be alot of disappointed people who will buy this stuff not thinking that it will LITERALLY start falling apart at the first touch. Even the plastic on the boxs is like celephane.

    Only if your "hobby" is also your "investment"...I'm not collecting anything because it's expensive or that I think its value will go up.

    Ok, dude, please stop being that guy. We know you don't like KOs. You don't have to go around in every thread parading it.

    Crap! I just purchased one of these without realizing it was the KO. I must have missed the details in the description now that I looked at it again. I have no desire to own this, so I contacted the seller to see if he'll cancel the transaction. If not, I'll just offer it up in the Junkion Exchange.

    I hope A3U does get these....I'll be getting at least two.....

    I got the K.O. Grimmy, and he wasnt that bad for the price that A3U sells them for....they at the least make great bash fodder :D

    Hmm, here's an option for me to replace the driver's side mirror I broke off my Alternator. I don't really care enough to do it, but having the option is nice.
