Hello, This is my first thread started here, so forgive me if it's in the wrong forum. I have a substantial collection of unopened Transformers from the movie trilogy. In particular, I try to collect those figures that were actually in the movies. I am very particular about the box conditions. So, because there was no U.S. commercial release of the Deluxe Leadfoot, Soundwave, and Que figures, I bought the Japanese versions online from a seller in Tokyo. When I got them, they all had heavy (and sloppy) tape about the bubble edges. At first glance, it looks like they were either opened, or the bubbles were pulling loose and someone decided to tape them up. The seller tells me this is normal for the Japanese releases (Takara) and swears they are unopened and fresh from the case. Is the assertion about the tape true? If so, the U.S. releases looked exponentially cleaner . . .
