    Forgive me if this is the wrong place to post this ( mods please move to proper place if so)

    I purchase a crystal henkei prime from a member here and was told it was a original, but when I recieved the items today it turns out to be a ko for many reason and on top of that the arm broke right off from the elbow when I rotated his elbow..
    1 the face mask is round/ original prime has his mask pointy
    2 his head is attach with a screw when/ the original is rivet
    3 it has no Takara stamps on his inside leg/ original does
    4 the waste does not have a ratchet when u rotate his waste/ original does
    5 his arms have no ratchet when rotate/ original does
    6 I own many henkei/ prime molds and none look or have any identical issue like this crystal prime does.

    The member sent me a picture before purchase but silly me I choose to ignore the zoom in on my iPad, and now if I zoom un I can see his face mask is round..
    The problem I have now is the seller claims its original, so I need your help if possible to see if you can tell from the pic he sent me its a ko prime or a original prime ( I already know what it is, but I need to make sure if my info correct or wrong)

    here's the pic u need to zoom in to get a good look at the face..

    IRRC, mine has both the Hasbro an Takara stamps on either side of is legs and copyrighted 2006, with the painted blue eyes.

    Edited with pics. hope this can help you make a case against that seller and get a full refund!

    sorry to bump this thread. need some help identifying my crystal convoy if it is KO - what does 'variant' mean?

    this is my crystal convoy. has crystal clear face but it does not have the 'E1308' number on the leg. transformation is perfect.

    Wow, I need to double check mine again just to be sure eventhough I bought mine way before the ko was release but just in case. You never know! I bought both mine off ebay one brand new in the box and the other loose but complete which makes me question it's authenticity

    BUH?! I had no idea Crystal Convoy was so expensive these days. I don't recall Classics Prime shooting up in value that much.
