Well, if it comes from China, it definitely is. (Not a racist remark, we all know where these things come from and all the 'cheap' (ko) ones usually offered from there)

Otherwise, you might be -really- lucky and the seller doesn't know the after market value of it.

I hope for you it's the real deal (but I would resent you forever haha)

Racist!!! Racist!!!!!! (J/k). Personally I wonder what's the quality on the KO's. IMO if the quality is really good, then it's worth it, no? I've thought about buying one but stopped because it's a little too big to scale with the rest of the movie lines' leader/voy/deluxe.

I'll let you know

But have there been any reports of KOs being sold by sellers with almost perfect feedback ratings?

Perfect feedback is about the seller, not the item. There are a lot of people with perfect feedback who are selling KO items. Sometimes the KOs are so good that they buyer doesnt even know, sometimes the buyer knows that they are getting a KO and accepts with when they win. Both times, good feedback is left.

I have heard that the KO Barricade is actually an excellent version, almost as good as the official one, but I would estimate that 60%-70% of HA Barricades on eBay right now are the KO, even if they dont admit to it (in the same way that most of the Alternators SDCC Hot Rods are KOs).

At $64 shipped its almost certainly a KO, and coming from China seals it. Authentic figures go for twice that. But, its probably a good quality KO, if that helps.

So how can I tell if it's a KO? I got it in the mail yesterday and it seems a little floppy (one of the doors doesn't close very well) and light, but it looks good! I haven't transformed him yet since I went out last night, but I'm beginning to worry that he is indeed a KO just from the feel alone. Frenzy is pretty floppy too, but not bad I guess. The packaging was really good looking, which made me think it's not a KO, but who knows?

Thanks for the links!

Seems like mine is probably a KO, but I can't really be sure without having the real thing. If it IS a KO then color me impressed at the job they did! Although I'm still disappointed.

Look at it this way, its either a really good quality KO for a reasonable price, or an authentic version for twice that. Which would you prefer?
