Counterfeit has an extra-wide grid square (double sized) to the right of Sideswipe's name
The grey grid lines in the background are thicker (like you see on most of the counterfeits).
"Transforms from [...]" and "Autobot Warrior" are the wrong fonts

Also, the 8 and up is on the KO as well but is different:

Quote:
The counterfeit has "Ages. 5 & Up" instead of "Ages: 5 & Up" on front of box--it uses a period instead of a colon. This is the same difference as on Mirage and Wheeljack's boxes.
Are you sure it said 6? Some photos are blurry and its difficult to see it exactly.

I wonder if a knockoff reissue of Fortress Maximus will be in the works.

That has been in the works for some time. It was pretty much killed when kotoys went under. It wouldn't matter anyways because it had a $300 price point!

I'm not aware of a pictoral comparison. Some text descriptions on HighEndTFs but it also mentions that the problems with the "reissue" KOs in their initial releases were later fixed. So that part of the guide is valid, but it doesn't specifically mention differences with the new versions.

Otherwise, you can look for pictures of molding/stamping variations on Fredsworkshop.com.
