    Hey I found this dreadwind the other day and im not finding any identifiable markings from hasbro or takara so I know its fake but it seems to be pretty decent quality. Just curious if anyone knows where it came from?

    Wow, that Dreadwind looks like a fu'd up version of the Joker. I know that mold has been KO'd quite a few times, I've found some in the past in which the plastic quality was awful. Is it the same size as the official release?

    That looks to be one of Pounce's guns. But the purple looks too light, although that may just be the flash.

    Yea he is the same size, and the plastic is actually pretty high quality, its a really well done KO, minus the creepy joker face lol.

    It's definitely a KO, the American stars on the wing are the first indicator, since the KO's had the American flag on the wings. Also, the Powermaster ports aren't there to unlock the nosecone. Functionally, it will work just like the original, although realistically, it's so fragile for the plastic, combining it is a PITA.

    As for the faction symbols, it looks like someone stuck the G1 or repro stickers on there. It's like putting lipstick on a pig.

    And the gun is definitely a KO from Pounce.

    The gun is Wingspan's. Pounce had these cool bayonet blades on his guns.

    So would you say the gun is a KO as well? Or the original, the flash did make it a lot brighter it is the same color as those pics that Fosterlager just posted. Its funny the dreadwind does have the powermaster port but it is just a non moving piece of plastic on the top of his jet mode.

    The gun is likely an original, since it would have been molded with the other purple parts of those clones, and I've not heard of KO clones.

    A picture of a KO Fastlane was posted in the KO thread so that's one clone who has been KO'd.
