    I was looking on Ebay looking for a HA Barricade and the first results were around 30 bucks, and from China. The other ones prices are in the Hundreds.
    So I was wondering, are the ones from China Knockoffs?

    they are sort of i guess. most ppl who have them can not even tell the difference between a real or ko and guess the quality is really good.

    i guess ppl dont really know if it is a ko or not since it is the same down to even the box 100%. some believed it to be a KO and some believe it was made again as a chinese release, but it deffinately is not an official release. so it would be more ko than original.

    Google this topic with "TFW2005" and you should see several threads talking about this. This was a decently big topic back in the day. Sold my authentic one just before the bubble burst. Might pick up the KO down the line. Does look like a great HA figure.

    I have the "KO" and it looks like the factory just did another run with the original molds. As best as I can tell, its just as good as the original.

    Yup, like they said, there is a KO version. I saw one in hand and didn't notice any difference at all compared to the original until the seller told me that it was a KO. It was that good.

    In my opinion they are distinguishable in hand, the KO I had didn't measure up to the official one, but some have said the opposite.

    I can only give you my own opinion mate :thumb 

    All the best

    I have a KO, and it @is a KO, not a reissue or anything like that.

    And it is pretty good quality and in hand it's hard to tell that's a KO, but you can tell. The main flaw is Frenzy is very floppy. IIRC there was a review thread somewhere I did pics for ages ago, but I think those pics are down.

    I also have the KO. Never had the original, but nothing about it looks or feels like a KO to me.
