    can anyone please help me out. How do you tell a KO Devastator from the real one. I got one off ebay last month and I think hes a KO but not 100% sure.

    If you post/link to photos of it, it would be easier to tell.

    First indicator would simply be, are the individual figures imprinted with "Hasbro" or "Takara"?

    Yes, post a picture and I will immediately be able to tell you if it's a KO.

    Or post a link to the ebay auction.

    do you see the slight yellowing on some of the individual pieces? that's the real deal. another member on here told me about that tip. apparently hasbro used cheaper plastic, so over time the yellowing occured.

    i guess the real test will be in 20 years. we'll have to see how the KO's look like of this era.

    Looks legit enough to me, somebody correct me if I'm wrong but I've heard that even the best KOs do not have die-cast on them.

    Just wondered if anyone out there knows any more about the above comment.

    Do all the high quality KO Devastators have a certain copyright stamping ? Would anyone who owns the high quality KO Devastator (the set or the individually carded ones) be kind enough to tell me what the copyright stamp on the toys says, exactly ?

    It would be greatly appreciated. I've been looking high and low for this info and although there is a fair amount of info & pics of the box/card discrepancies, there is no mention of the copyright stamps on the toys themselves.
