    Does anybody know where this mysterious purple/green cosmos comes from? I got him in a junk lot. Hes about the same quality as the vintage green cosmos. Im curious as how his packaging looks....

    Your probably right no rubsign or markings on him....he was in a lot with other vintage g1 figs that are official

    It's a Korean/Taiwan KO, either you got the one I saw off eBay or there are more floating around. Seller is well known for selling vintage KO/Bootlegs.

    That's almost certainly a knockoff. Back in the day, some chinese companies would make knockoff versions of transformers in multiple colors in an attempt to skirt the US copyright laws and sell them in Dollar General-type stores.
