    one of the Member(also a toy store people) said he found the KO Sentinal Prime.

    but before everything, he is using the Chinese Offical edition to do compare...and my English suck...I knew....

    the different that he talking about, is the feeling of the box, and...

    of course, we dont have Chinese words there. if we have, that will be a big bug!!!! god dmn bless I dont have to see that dumb name in Mandarin.

    and the other different is: the Iron Mark, and the factory info, of course, since different area, the Chinese Edition will have different info from ours.
    and Im not sure, but my Iron mark is not on the buttom of the box, it's in the back of the box...so this still not a main point.

    i see no different inside the pack...

    [​IMG]
    well, our USA verson will of course dont have this 3C sticker

    [​IMG]
    he said the instructions will have different feel.

    ok, here's the main point.

    [​IMG]

    the KO one will have 2 wheels in his leg....
    [​IMG]

    this is really a main point, but here's what am I thinking about, will this one really a KO one? if someone wants to make a KO, why he will make SP's leg like this? I dont think it will save more money when he do a different part from the real one, right?

    [​IMG]

    and basic by the offical picture, 2 wheels on the leg will be the way that SP suppose be, right?

    so here's what I think:
    1, maybe this is just a QC problem of the SP, like the crankcase's finger, if the iron mark before 105, will have uncut, if 106, cutted, so like my SP, have iron mark 106, of course the folded wheels, but how about 103~105? let's keep our eye open, to see what's going on.

    2, the other chance of this issue, maybe someone put the loose one back to the box and re-sell. Yes, this will happen in China, sometime they will get the Loose(or they call sample, or early bird?), but sometime they may have chance to get the box, just the box only, then they will put the loose one back to the box, and make this happen...


    still, let's keep our eye open, and see what's going on.

    well, the point is, the KO one that he talking about, is our USA edition (basic by the factory info), but the leg's problem really a good point....but for now, I feel more confirm, this is someone put their loose one back to the box, and transform the SP as what Hasbro show on their pic.

    I haven't messed with the Hasbro version, so I don't know how it transforms, but there are two wheels/tires in both versions. The "official" version has one tire in front of the other, and the other it's below.

    Maybe they're both official, and one is just mistransformed?

    I think we have seen official packaging with Chinese on it.

    Although that doesn't preclude the possibility of a knock off, of course.

    Don't fully understand that leg part but from what it seems I'll say this. He tranforms that way with the wheel folded up but I think most will just keep it inside the leg the way they're suppose to be for vehicle. So that leg part could just be alternate packaging.

    I was just about to make a thread for this until I saw yours.

    Honestly, I don't know whether it's a KO or just the Chinese toy, as I don't read Chinese so I can't tell what those boxes say...

    EDIT: Never mind, read above post by xterry.

    Someone in the knows told me it was common for Chinese sellers to KO packaging to resell legit stolen samples at a higher price since MISB toys are more attractive. Doesn't mean this one in fake though, hard to tell from here.
