    I'm wondering if anyone can tell me a way to tell the difference between a G1 and a KO. I bought a lot on ebay and the reflector is ko, also got a springer so now I'm trying to find out if it's real. I don't think is is real, but need prof for ebay.

    There should be a rubsign on the real toy.

    You can tell by the box. I also heard the head on the original is a slightly different shade of green but on the KO its the same color. Also lots of the KOs from China come with rubsigns now. My KO Dinobots came with them.

    They do. The real one has "taller" text.

    As I said, you can tell from the face. Also, the original gun was made of die cast from what I remember. A 30 year old loose toy in mint condition is a red flag to me. Unless the seller really took good care of it

    I bought from a guy on ebay, then bought a ko reflector box from someone else. just found out it was from the same guy with 2 ebay accounts. 1 he sells ko boxes and inserts, the other is G1 stuff. but he has sold G1 stuff on one and the ko boxes on the other at the same time. just pizzed ppl do this to make money.

    That Autobot chest sticker doesn't look right to me. Selling loose g1s and ko boxes on 2 different accounts makes me think you have a ko springer. Is he selling a springer box in his ko box account? If so, case closed.

    That's just lazy if they don't bother painting the face.
