    PLEASE HELP - how do you tell the difference between the original MOSC Frenzy / Laserbeak and the KO one?

    The card for the KO ones will usually look like they just came off the printing press. - IE a surprising lack of wear for a 20 year old package.
    Font on the back of the card is usually a bit off, sometimes with spelling errors.

    The ones i've seen in person have Frenzy and Laserbeak on the front, but on the back both have instructions/tech specs for Ravage and Rumble.


    Have you got a specific link?

    I'm guessing it's a KO?

    It does look like it has a bit of wear to it though, but probably not enough for a 20 year old toy.

    Going by the rivets on Frenzy's arms, i'm fairly sure it's the repro version.

    Speaking of KO cassettes, I wonder when Ages3andup will be getting theirs in?

    The only surefire way to know is to get a close-up look of the text on the back of the card and check to see if it looks strange. Even though there are a lot more like-new knockoff frenzy/laserbeak sets than like-new authentic frenzy/laserbeak sets, the latter do exist.

    Could just look for one with a price tag. S'what I'm gonna do. I need one to go with my Rumble/Ravage which I bought long before this whole mess.

    Yeah, I got a clear set, and hopefully soon a black set. now I just need a Rumble (or Frenzy however you see the red one as) to have a little army when I get my Soundwave reissue.
