    A friend of mine found gift sets for Devs and Superion for 69.99 a piece on ioffer.com and I'm pretty sure these are the KO ones. Just wanted to get some confirmation so I can save my bro his money.

    Those are definitely KOs, real ones cost a HELL of a lot more

    yup, its a ko. main thing to look out for ko devastator giftsets is the box, specifically on where devastator's arm is when its touching the window where hook is. look at this picture: Transformers G1 Devastator near complete, Box&Instrctns - eBay (item 280492384607 end time Apr-19-10 11:14:35 PDT)

    then compare it with what you posted. look closely on the window where hook is. see the difference on the part where it touches the arm of the devastator art. hope this helps!

    Checking the seller's "other items", he's listed a Re-issue Sunstreaker, Mirage, and Wheeljack, and he's also listed an item labeled "Defensor"...when it's clearly Shockwave (it even has the name on the BOX).

    On that evidence alone that this guy is trying to pass off re-issues of figures known to never have been officaly re-issued, it wouldn't be to hard to say those combiners are also fakes.

    With Devastator, isn't it just a case of the original has the grey border but the KO doesn't. Someone correct me if I'm wrong on this.

    Thanks everyone! I just needed this info to convince my friend not to blow his money on this stuff.

    Mods can close this thread or let it disappear.

    Why can't this seller just go ahead and label his figures as KO's? It should'nt hurt his sales.
