    I believe these are from the KO Japanese Headmasters reissue set that came out last year around Botcon.

    No they are not from the KO set from last year. KO set does not have the takara stamps. White versions are store exclusives.

    They could be another knockoff with the stamps on them. The official white exclusives are insanely rare, and honestly these don't look as white as the official ones I have seen. I'm not quite sure what they are, but they aren't from the KO set that is for sure.

    In all honesty they MIGHT be legit...but with so many "alt"-headmaster / head makers out there I'd be REALLY leary about pulling the trigger. Sure the main ones we saw KO'ed had the Takara stamps removed, but as we've seen with other groups copyrights are certainly not sacred and any high end figure is fair game...especially one that can be remade easily.

    They are legit. The rivets and stampings all look vintage to me. Also, the coloring looks right.
