    Which Titans Returns / Power of the Primes Legends class toys DO NOT have a KO.

    for example Cosmos, Outback, Cindersaur - do any of those have KO's ?

    Also ask for return postagr if possible. sometimes they will ask you to send the item to a different address. I went through this with a chinese seller, and Ebay gave me a full refund,since the seller,wouldnt give me a return postage label to the US address he wanted me to send to.

    No, it's not a knockoff. It was made by Hasbro for the Chinese market. It's a reissue of the 2000's reissue. There were several of these: God Ginrai, Rodimus Prime, Soundwave too off the top of my head.

    Sorry Guys, it was a Rewind not a Ramhorn. My mistake!

    Official reissue with the short stacks.

    Fyi, this had the blue mouth guard, red optics and diecast feet and rubber tires.

    Another heads up, so KOs like Devastator lack some features /connectors that turn the vehicles into their combat mode. The G1 Constructicons had a Diaclone feature using the bits and pieces of their super warrior mode to be combat mode vehicles.

    KOs of Universe/Henkei Seekers and Coneheads are giving me a real headache. These are the ideal deluxe class for me (seekers shouldn't by Voyagers IMHO) but finding legit ones is a real hassle.

    Concerning Encore in Metroflex's case, there is none (Encore)as the Koers attempted to Ko the original. Aside from the chroming of the tires and the lack of the "molded" addition to Slammer's turret.

    I don't recall any other "Encore KOed. Most are the G1 originals.

    Btw, G1 Grimlock has an issue with the locking mechanism of his chest. The peg is too small to latch on to the indented part, and the head plastic isn't glossy at all.

    G1 Wheeljack can easily be called out with the dull white plastic and the crappy wheel rivets.

    G1 Headmasters have also been Koed. Iirc, there's Weirdwolf. This one is kind of hard to nail as the original one had a dull finish plastic like the KO

    Sunstreaker too is a well made KO, very hard to tell the difference though the black plastics of his shoulder and black has a certain quality different from the original.

    Insecticons too, the black plastic is duller than the original.

    Just in case anyone was also reading these posts a bit older looking for info - ioffer.com apparently was smacked around quite a bit over KO Brand merchandise in the past 6 months. The site was down for months & when back, most listings for major branded items were gone. No Transformers listings anymore - one less KO marketplace...that is if you were lucky enough to be in that 10% that actually received their order vs. getting taken by a buyer that disappears after payment...
