Transformers Movie 3 Ultimate Optimus Prime-China import | eBay

Anyone bought one of these I can't seem to get an answer if they are KO's or just the chinese market release packaging?

Of if they are the same quality as the original ones if they are fake (i.e. made in the same moulds on the side)

I thought I answered your question, chimingmung has that ultimate op listed as a KO.

Thanks!
Sorry to be a bother, but would anyone be able to help me out here?
Thanks!

I think you'll probably find that the guns fit, but exchanging body parts may be hit and miss.

I know some have problems with the KO Dinobot Swoop's weapons fitting even on the toy they come with.

My HQ KO Grimlock and Sludge's guns/swords don't fit the authentic ones and likewise my HQ KO Aerialbots connectors don't plug into my authentic Silverbolt.

I did not have the time to read through this entire thread. What is the datestamp on the KO dinobots? I had read on the ko comparison website, it is just "Takara". Has this changed? Are KO dinobots made with the "Has/Tak" stamp?
My dinos Sludge and Slag have the Has/Tak stamp. The Slag has both on the same leg. The Sludge has both, but the mold according to Fred's is the Macau mold since the indent is oval and not square, but is reads takara and not Macau.

Thanks for the replies everyone. Sounds like it's better chances than a coin flip that the KO parts won't fit my authentic figures. Sadness.

I had to shave the post on my ko Swoop's blaster just to get him to be able to hold it. His sword fits fine though. His sword also fits my legit Dinobots as well.

Credit where credit is due Might.

[QUOTE=Might Gaine;8812059]We were right: Qiupaul/Mcdolltutu has been selling Computrons in fake packaging as "MIB"! He's selling a "repro box" now. Confirmation came that his old MIB auctions were scams when I noticed they lacked the little arrow next to "TECH SPECS Clip and Save!" There are apparently two different versions of the fake box: the "MIB" scam ones have just the one difference. The ones he's selling as "repro boxes" now have a lot more differences.


Ha! Your welcome Might. From the same scam I tried to explain to you and the board in this very thread over a year ago. And btw...once again, those ain't G1 85' original Technobots he's been packing into the repro boxes for years....aka longer than it should have EVER taken for an "official" statement about this unbelievable scam to be made.

Next time, please listen to me the first, 2nd, 4th or 10th time I try to warn you about a scam, and maybe we can work together to help a few more unassuming people from being ripped off.

Credit where credit's due amigo. I'm the one that blew the lid off this thing over a year ago. The proof is in the thread correspondences.

aaaand, you're welcome.
