    WOW What a great price.

    I wonder if people were afraid it was a KO or something.

    I thought it might have been at first, but looking at it, it doesnt look brand spanking new, but its in pretty decent condition. Hell, even if it was the KO, I still think it would be a decent price. Guess it pays to be a TF fan for once! Casual collectors may not be able to tell if its the KO or not.

    Damn. Nice deal. Wish I had seen that. I want a G1 Mirage as he was my very first TF as a kid, but I don't really want to go spending a ton to get one... I would have gleefully paid $22 + shipping, though.:)

    It's easy to tell the K.O from the real thing. The K.O has painted white/red racing stripes on the top sides, on the original those stripes were stickers.
    Also the the 26/Elf on the chest is painted on the K.O, it's a sticker on the original.

    Appart from the yellow chest/nosecone he looks quite minty indeed. And to $22 it's a steal. I recently got one too for $16 however he hadn't any weapons.
    Great find :D
