So they are bootlegs. Thanks for clearing that up.

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

Skywarp408 confirmed that they're Chinese knockoffs. ;)

There's a website with some good info on easily spotting the fake ones. If i can find the bookmark, I will post it. One easy way to tell a ko from the real deal is the grid lines on the G1 boxes 84-88. The ko's are always much bolder.
