    Can you tell me the text of the copyright stamp on the trailer? I'm trying to differentiate a KO from the real thing. My KO says "Made in Japan."

    What does the real thing say?

    I think an easier way to tell the difference between the two is that the plastic on Jafcon Convoy is actually sparkly plastic. The KO is just flat black, I believe.

    I don't have either, but I know for sure Jafcon Convoy is sparkly.

    When you hold them in your hands, you can easily tell the difference. The plastic quality and joints are far inferior in the KO. I was looking for some smoking guns that you could use to identify the two by picture alone.

    sorry to revive a zombie thread, but one sure way to know if he's an original is to check the cab's two front tires to see if he has the connecting pegs for the UM armor. the fake and KO versions do not and have a flat tire hubcaps instead.

    Does the original "Jafcon" sticker play a part in the differentiating between the original & KO verion? Which i feel it does play a part.

    Yes, the front sticker does make a difference. Many unscrupulous sellers will try to sell a Black KO prime in the 15th Anniversary Prime box, but the stickers on the real Jafcon and the 15th Anniversary box ARE different. Text on the back of the boxes is different as well.
