    Deffo KO, I have it.

    It's the smaller KO version, commonly 3-packed for a quid in the UK without the combiner parts.

    The shitty wheels are the real giveaway.

    Keep an eye out for the oval-ish metal piece the whole body swivels around on. Hopefully you'll find one with a non rusted piece
