    Scrutinizing at the back of the box, I see where it has been opened. The item is a fake, but it does look nicely packed as seen from the front.

    A KO MW Thundercracker/Skywarp, and an upsized one at that. That KO doesn't actually look half bad you know. But still, the auctioneers should be notified

    *waits for someone to say it looks better than the actual Dreadwing so I can disagree*

    Offically packaged Movie TFs have that also. That way after you open it the tabs can be used to preserve the MOSC look from the front.

    But yeah if you zoom in you can definately see that the tape's been sliced down the tabs and opened. The upper half of the tab on the left (long side) doesn't look like it hasn't been taped back down.

    Gotta admit, that's pretty creative. Must be targeting future collectors looking for rare or mistakes. Sneaky

    Must be targetting people too dumb to notice that the jet on the back of the card has absolutely no resemblance to the toy in the package, apart from having two wings.
