    Hi. just come across this " traceandtrev " selling on ebay, but doubted his collection could be fake as some reason. 1. all his selling collection just happen to be the released KO versions. 2. judged by tips on forum, his boxes failed. 3. every robot is too new!!!

    some advice please. cheers!

    Ebay:
    Most of them look legit to me as far as I can tell. Many of the toys he's selling haven't been KOd, and the ones that have, the boxes look like the real thing. I know for sure that the Optimus Prime boxes aren;t the KO boxes, at any rate. No grey strip running along the top of the clear part, and the Trans Formers title is spaced properly.
    However, I think this one is a fake

    http://cgi.ebay.com/TRANSFORMERS-G1...3911.c0.m14&_trkparms=66:2|65:1|39:1|240:1318
    because the hole punched out is in the center of the card, and not more to the side as it would be if it were original. Like in this auction:

    Wow. Considering that YOU SELL KOS AS ORIGINALS ON EBAY YOURSELF, I'd say you've got one FUCK of a nerve.
    Also, traceandtrev has been selling original G1 toys on eBay for a LONG time; far longer than the KOs have been available.
    Rodimus Major, the first Beachcomber you linked to is a fake; I've contacted them to let them know.

    He has a feedback rating of over 99 percent, and over 3000 successful sales...Its almost inconcievable with someone of that record would throw away their Very sucessful business for some bootleg stock. I don't buy it.

    I got a reply from traceandtrev:
    And, true to their word, they've pulled the auction.
    You could learn a lot about honesty from them, TNLonflings.

    Yep. I don't knock anyone for selling or wanting the KOs. But to try and fool people into believing they are authentic originals, well...those kind of people are worse than scalpers.

    Selling K/O's is cool in my book but like the others say passing them off as vintage is bad.A few bucks is not worth your pride dude!

    Guys, in spite of your feelings about KOs, this guy is still a member here and that means the no flaming rule still applies.

    The question has already been answered so in the interest of keeping the peace I'm closing this now.
