I'm pretty certain it's a KO. There is an extreme proliferation of the high-quality fake G1 figs in Southeast Asia, especially Wheeljack, Cyclonus, Scourge, Devastator giftset and Mirage. Practically every dealer is honest and up-front about it, usually volunteering the info that the item is a knockoff without being asked. They're still pretty pricey for fakes tho.

I would be scared of buying figures at an event like this. I would have difficulty distinguishing the KO's from the real Macoys.
