    I wonder why she's so expensive for someone who showed up for about 30 seconds, then was rammed off the road.

    Thanks for the warning. Hope you do get your money back.



    Mainly because Fracture is Crasher from the Gobots. They used a different name for trademark reasons, but it's her. Fracture being a female Decepticon makes her rare in just about any character lineup.

    It's weird that I haven't seen this one pop up on Taobao. I saw every other one there first before they were announced here or on KOToys. But I scoured the Transformer listings last night and didn't find one single Fracture.

    Yup, they're actually being sold as genuine ones. You'll notice the differences if you make a side-by-side comparison. Or if you have the authentic ones.

    The most common KO I think is the TFTM Legends Bee. The telltale signs:

    - the packaging looks paler/faded
    - there is a piece of scotch tape at the bottom of the package
    - the paint apps are really bad, the Autobot logo on the chest is smudged/deformed
    - the metal parts of the wheels are rusted/tarnished

    I got the refund for my KO Fracture yesterday, which is good, but I'm still down $4 for all the incidentals (i.e. travel fare, food and drink) and also lost time. This is a bad experience, I tell you.

    Anyway, after getting my refund I checked out stores in Greenhills Shopping Center, it's like a mecca for toy collectors here in Manila, and saw the KO Botcon Mirage and KO Henkei Rijie Electro Disruptor displayed at one of the stores and checked the signs I pointed out in my how-to-tell guide for KO Fracture and they all match on the two. It looks like my KO Fracture was made by the same KO maker as KO Botcon Mirage and KO Henkei Rijie Electro Disruptor. No Transformer made out of the Classics Mirage mold is safe from being KOed now.
