    I got this a month or so ago as a mib complete Motorvator Flame. Now all is well with it, but I noticed when opening it that it is tied down with weird thick twist-ties. I was wondering if anyone knows if this is by any chance the factory sealing to backing for these guys? I ask cuz I'll leave it be if it is factory, but if not, then untwisting time.

    Here's a pic to show what I mean:

    While I don't have these to confirm, it's entirely possible those are legit... the Motovators are infamous for having terrible packaging... I mean, look at that flimsy cardboard holding that enormous figure!

    Yes, they came packaged with twist ties, don't ask me why, but I have a case fresh set with tape on them, and mine are twist tied.
