BTW, just for fun, one hinge of the trailer's back-door is broken...
I believe that this was the only Prime made in Strasbourg, France:
I'd be inclined to say that your Black made In France Prime is indeed a KO
And since when has a broken door ever stopped you?
Oh well... I thought so. It IS a very good KO because everything that should be is. He transform superbly and it has no flaws... until that idiot who sold it to me packed it pretty much loose and bouncing in the shipping box.
I hope that's not 30$ wasted.
Most of the later issue KO Black Prime's are noted for their loose wheel pins, stickers and panels amongst other issues. So if yours transforms perfectly, then I'd say that it's $30 well spent.

Made in France? Interesting, this may indicate that these KO's have been made using the French Joustra Diaclone molds, and they were not reverse-engineered as previously thought.
That doesn't make them any more legal though
Top 5 Priorities:
1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) BW II VS-18 Powerhug vs. Autocrusher
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) RiD Landfill (regular, not the yellow)
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)
Also looking for Arms Microns, especially Shadow (Gora & R.A.), Hellflame and Shining (O.P. and R.A.).Preparing to move to the US!

I have both black G1 Optimus Prime/Convoy figures. Jafcon "Black" Convoy can be had for $200 and up. I did use those quotations for a reason too. Be aware, Jafcon Convoy is NOT entirely black. His plastic is mostly a transparent dark brown with gold metallic flecks in it. You don't just have to take my word for it though. Seibertron can also confirm this. He's nice despite all that. As always, your opinion may differ on whether the cost is worth it.
Aha! A quick Google search brings up this! question-about-jafcon-convoy-black-optimus-prime-toy-t84423.php
There you have it.
