    I've just bought a MOSC G1 Beachcomber and I need to find out if its a KO what are the most obivious flaws i can look for?
    The hole punch is off center the Rub is on his right leg but thats as much as I know, i think its UK release version if thats any use.

    If i remember correctly, Beachcomber was one of the first bootleged figures to surface, like 6-8 years ago and at the time, they were though to be old warehouse findings (even after being found at stores in chinatown)

    Im not sure, but i think one of the few ways to know for certain was looking at the back of the card, "i think" it had some typo (but extremely minor)

    No the Rub sign is on his Right leg, he has the hourglass type symbol on his chest.

    This has come in handy cheers Ninety.

    looking at it i cant seem to find a typo but without knowing what it is I'm bit Stumpted.

    I wanna send it off for grading but wanna make sure before hand
    Cheers for the help guys! :thumbs2:

    Even if its a KO the quality is near perfect, its a great filler for the real deal and a good way to scavenge tires for a real G1 (especially if you pay next to nothing for it and it has rubber wheels)
