The one that has the white Henkei Magnus? Hmm... I seriously think that Magnus is a KO now... But Robotkingdom just made a listing for that Magnus as a legit product. $60. :-?

Yes, same guy. Also, I just threw a Magnus/Skywarp MISB set on ebay. Hopefully I'll still get a decent amount for it :D

By the way guys, I was recently ripped off and bought a KO Dai Atlas locally, thinking it was the real deal. You can never be too careful. It even happens to the best of us, not just the new-to-collecting scrubs.

Yeah, actually, it has. Back when Animated first was being launched, some of those first waves of toys wound up in Chinese stores as knock-offs before they arrived in America. Regarding Ultra Magnus, are you asking if it could be a KO? Anything's possible, but more than likely, no. If I were to guess, it's probably a pre-production sample. Until recently, production leaks happened frequently, and factory employees would be able to sneak out toys and sell them on ebay (I acquired a pre-production SG Prime that way). After Hasbro moved their operations around in the past two years or so, we haven't been seeing many leaks. To be honest, I hope this continues, because factories leaking the latest toys again is exciting!

Yeah, I think so. It came without the box and the micromaster, so there weren't any immediate tells that it was that version. Ryan (Seibertron) mentioned it could be a fake, and after talking to the seller's spouse, she confirmed it. If you're curious, I just made a gallery for it over the weekend here.

The face paint job is a give away. Though not always accurate but his Autobot label/sigil is to blotted(?). Iirc back in the early 90's, a lot of Taiwan K.O. flooded the market. Lio Kaiser, Road Cesar, and Skygarry. only difference was that their label sheets didn't have the Cybertron/Destron sigils. But who knows, some may have been released with the KO symbols.

Thanks for the pics btw.

I realized that Sky Garry was KO'd, but I didn't know about the others until I after I purchased Dai Atlas. Thanks for the tip about the insignias, I'll have to remember that one in the future.
