What does that mean? They cut off 10% and replaced it?
Meaning, I am leaning there is 10% possibility that it is a KO.
Maybe the KOer will read this but if you check ALL the Optimus Primes/Convoys released up to 1986-1987, there is an inherent mis painting on them. In others words, it ain't perfect
. In the Japanese version, the "part" I mean isn't painted all the way to the left part while the USA version, it isn't fully painted all the way to the right.
I was looking at the pics posted by the seller and given the bad lighting, I can't commit to a 100% original.
WHat is harder are those released after 1987. They don't have the blemish and their boxes (not an accurate indicator of course) don't have an area of original country printed on them. Same with the Takara embossment......all gone. Just the Hasbro and year (1984 is now covered up)
I know what I'm talking about btw. Same with a particular printing blemish on an original Fortmax USA release.
