    It's a KO. Wheeljack had some factory applied stickers on him. This one has none.

    I'm going with legit. The plastic insert is a repro, likely from bubbleformer aka miragesboxes. The figure appears to have have all the stickers stripped. The paint doesn't have the characteristic bright white rear half with an tan-ish hood. There also appears to be some paint wear, possibly indicating age.

    I say KO - there's no rubsign on the spoiler.

    But I do agree that it does LOOK old...

    I say it is legit. I have seen this before where the stickers are so crappy, the toy actually looks better without them, so they strip them off.

    Some of the G1 KOs are known to have paint chips after very little handling. I have a KO Wheeljack and it has minor chipping in the inside of the feet from the first few transforms. I think a few of the Dinobots also have this problem. Unless the guy takes the toy out of the packaging with some closer pics, it's difficult to tell whether it is truly legit or not.

    it is legit, I have 2 original wheeljacks and 2 KO's that I bought for customizing

    1- Ko wheeljack wheels pins (hubcaps) are deformed with blemishes, originals are smooth and well finished

    2- Ko wheeljack plastic is Ultrawhite, the original wheeljack is "bone white" and this one is not just aged but is not completely white.

    3- the guy states clearly that he cleaned it and removed all the old stickers

    Love Die Cast toys, but the chipping sucks. Every die cast toy has this issue, KO or not.
