    No its not a KO and the seller posts on these boards and is a very good guy, why do you think its a KO ??? the box is worn and the inner styro is correct (KO has a longer upper tray) all thats wrong is the trailer stickers are missing and thats stated in the auction.

    You're not him, are you? :p 

    Actually, Red Leader's right. This is the real McCoy. A pity about the stickers.

    My auction ^^ and no it's not a KO. Some kid's peeled the stickers off the trailer, that's all. It's 100% original, worry ye not :) 

    edit: and I just noticed the text is in black, d'oh. To the edit button!

    Ok, my apologies. I thought the grey insert on a ko went around the plastic window. I'm probably not explaining this very well but nevermind. And good luck with the sale:)

    If it was a KO, it wouldn't have styrofoam. All the KO Primes I seen have a cardboard with plastic bubble.

    When I went to Comic-Con a few years ago, there were sellers trying to sell KO Primes as if they were the original. They even went as far as placing the sticker sheet over the window so you couldn't see inside the box. I knew better... besides I already have too many primes as it is! ;)

    All the KO's I've seen do have styrofoam, and packaging nearly identical to the original. Do you have an example of the ones you're describing?
