i bought this figure a month ago off ebay, and JUST noticed something off...
almost all pictures i can find of this figure show him with painted hubcaps and other silver paint apps all over to simulate scratches. which my figure.. has none of!
when i was searching for images of this guy, i did however come across a news article of this figure being "leaked" and pictured for a sneak preview for that years botcon i assume. the figure pictured is oly in truck mode, has black hubcaps and no scratch paint apps. could mine be a prototype or early release?
and i highly doubt he is a KO or custom. ive never seen this figure KO'd before and he feels like the real thing. the other paint apps he has are solid as well. and i know what a KO feels like after so many CHMS seekers...
