    This does not look like a KO to me what makes you think this is a KO?

    It's the knockoff because it has no gray border between the Devastator art and the toy windows.

    The buyer says that only the box is KO and all figures and accesories are original. How can you tell if this is true or not?

    The original auction has been ended, and the item has been re-listed with a new description.

    I would question a seller that first claims everything is original, then claims that the figures are real, but the box is a KO!

    The seller has the item listed again. I never heard of a KO box containing original figures. It must mean that the seller handled the figures to place them inside the KO box.

    Agreed!

    This doesn't make much sense. I would think an original box in poor condition is still more desirable than a KO box in mint condition. I think the item's description was changed only because the seller was notified that their item was a KO. Notice the seller doesn't say what happened to the KO figures that came with KO box or the original box that was damaged!

    Maybe he sold the Constructicons KO's separately and kept the box. But still, he should explain on why he is selling originals in a KO box.

    you can buy the KO box separatly. I also got a KO box with vintage figures. But this sellers figures look way to shiny for vintages. Also note the weapons are on the same sprue. Don't know if that's normal either.
