KOLD launches first knock-off Lucky Draw
March 17th, 2010 08:03:39

Genzaho of KOToys.com has publicly announced the release of the first KOLD figure (Knock-Off Lucky Draw for those wondering what the name means).  The figure is a gold chromed knock-off Henkei Convoy and is 100% non-official (I.E no parts of this toy are made by TakaraTomy or Hasbro Inc).  The figure is, for now, being sold exclusively through KOToys.com with an original run of 250 items.  If you look quickly you may be fooled into thinking that this is an actual TV Magazine Gold Henkei Convoy or one of the fakes that was around last year, neither is the case.  Here are some of the things to look out for on this figure to know that it is a fake and not an original, official item.

  1. The plastic joints are a darker brown that any official lucky draw figure that has been seen.
  2. The figure has no copyright markings.  This is because it is using the KO mold.
  3. The Autobot insignia are larger than they should be.

One thing to be careful of though is that this figure was chromed whilst on the spruce and not afterwards.  This means that it will have the "snap" marks on the gold chrome which have, in the past, be used to try to help identify some of the fakes.  From speaking to Genzhao we known that between 25 and 50 of these have be sold to one or two people in China so we urge everyone that if you are offered a gold Henkei Convoy to look very carefully at the figure, ask to see the copyright markings.  Compare any images to images of this toy and the ones features in our fake Gold Henkei Convoy gallery.  If the toy you are offered looks like either of these then there is a good chance that it is a fake or knock-off item so ensure that you know before you part with your cash.  KOToys is selling these for $59.99 so if you do wish to get one you can buy them direct from them.

We will create a gallery soon mirroring the images of this figure to help people compare as well as showing images of a sample of the KOLD figure that has no Autobot symbols and different coloured plastic.

Again, this toy is 100% non-official.  If you see a figure looking like one of these for sale as a real item you are being conned.
