    I would assume that they are aftermarket KOs since there are so many KO Swoops in the market now.

    Yeah, I've noticed these too for a while. yc-collection (aka yc-collectibles store) has been selling the same items as this seller for a while. Despite the auctions not saying anything the quantities scream KO. I actually was curious if buyers were aware the parts are probably KOs (it was for some obviously non-original prime fists) and contacted a buyer who didn't know and was furious.

    I don't think they're aftermarket so much as KO parts specifically made to be sold without the toy, just like the sticker sheets and boxes these guys sell. (But maybe that's what you meant?)

    Thanks for the info....at least it was only $6 so not a huge loss...but he/she should be mentioning the ko factor in the ad

    I bought a swoop KO beak from this guy last week to place on my G1 original beak-less swoop.

    I am hoping it will fit.

    What about all those sticker sheets yc-collectibles is selling? Are those legit? His Omega Supreme sticker sheet is cheaper than reprolabels, but it really doesn't matter if the quality stinks...

    Unless he and band of ninjas broke into the original factory the bagillion stickers sheets he has are repros. Can't speak for quality though. My experience in general reqarding quality is KO < Original

    The stickers are repros/KOs. Apparently the guys who are making these knockoffs have access to both molds and sticker sheets.

    I've had both reprolabels stickers and KO stickers. I honestly like reprolabel stickers better. They seem to adhere to the TFs better.

    Anyways, even if this is from a KO as long as it fits your bot then I wouldn't worry about it.
