    Ebay item 160315101066

    Of course, now that you can't see the high bidders ID, you can't even email a warning.

    I don't want to start another arguement, because I think this has been beat to death, but I just can't see how these things are good for the hobby.

    wow , that is sure is high, specially when you can get it at ya-hobby or toyzzunlimited for 1 fifth of that, here we go again, I am a KO lover and i buy that stuff, but I DO NOT agree with scams, and sellers who DO NOT STATE IT IS A KO should be punished.

    I do not know what ANONYMOUS saw in it, but I know because NO Original Devastator in the world comes with all the stickers on the side, there are factory applied stickers, and most of the recent chinese bootlegs bring all of the factory applied stickers on the side, this same pattern applied to my mirage, my black optimus prime, my two wheeljacks and obviously my devastator giftset.

    on top of that if you were to find an original devs in this mint condition, be sure that $500, would be just the initial price and not the final price.

    there are other indicators like the box art and some other stuff you can find here:

    hope this helps!!

    This is a good general review/overview of a comparison. The biggest give away is the missing grey border on the KO

    I've contacted the buyer; hopefully he can get his money back. I personally don't have a problem with KOs, but I DO have a problem with fucking scumbags like this seller passing them off as the real deal.
