    What makes you think they're KOs? It's not at all uncommon for Chinese sellers to have assortments of things that aren't normally available in the US without them being unofficial products.

    Given the seller location and that there are 4 (I think) of the same auction. Those things to me make me think knock off. If they aren't knock off it seems like a good deal.

    are these even worth the effort to ko tho? they're so small they can easily be sneaked out from the factory. $1.50/fig doesn't seem worth while to set up molds and paint/assembly line for ko factory.

    I don't know enough about the Kreons to tell if they are KO or not, but there is another possibility...

    Given the sellers location it is also possible that he/she , or someone they know, may work at the factory where they are manufactured and snagged some to put on ebay to earn some extra money. This is how a lot of the "pre-release" transformers end up on the market.

    They are probably not KOs in the sense that someone made copies in another factory. More likely some Chinese factory worker stole a case of them from the factory where he works and is selling them on the side to make money to feed his kids - sorry KID, this is China.

    Knockoff Kre-Os looks more like this:

    Forget being red. Look at how he turns into a perfect viper. Not blocky at all!

    These KOs are better than the real thing.
