    Holy shit.

    I'd say you did. Usually for MIB G1 Japanese stuff the price range goes into the selling first borns souls and blood range.

    Hmm, I won't be too sure on that, there're chinese words on the box(Not the japanese kanji ones, I mean pure chinese)
    Those are probably the ones which got licensed in China.
    Again, Might Gaine should be the best person to ask about it.

    Naturally, I rushed to see what else, if anything, that guy happened to have in stock... and was greeted by Armada Laserbeak. :lol

    I don't know anything about them, but the plastic looks dubious to me. Also, the price is suspiciously low. I hope you just got a good deal, good luck.

    The box looks suspect; shouldn't the bottom right part read "タカラ", and not "TAKARA?"

    looking at other boxes I'm thinking it's legit...at least I'm really hoping it to be.

    I'd say that even if they are the Chinese versions of the toys, you still got a great deal. Nice one!

    I'm pretty sure they are official, I hope they are official. I think my 3 2-packs of Landcross are those versions.

    Will you hunt down the other 2 pieces for RoadCeasar, and 4 for Landcross?

    Like Blahduh said, these are the licensed Chinese release from 1995. So, they're real, just not Japanese :) 

    Basically in China, Hasbro started releasing G1 in 1989, 5 years after we started getting G1. So through 1994 the Chinese line was basically just reissues of a large number of US releases in boxes that looked nearly identical to the US releases, except with a Chinese sticker in the corner. After the Power Master-era stuff came out in 1994 in China, in 1995 instead of continuing on to Pretenders and Micromasters, Hasbro released Victory toys in China: Road Caesar in single packs, Landcross in single packs, and Liokaiser in single packs (but missing Leozack, stangely). That's what these are.
