    I am watching an auction. In this auction, the seller says the bubble has never been opened. So, essentially, it's MISB. It looks unopened, but I can't be %100 certain.

    Anyways, the question is were G1 toys packaged with their weapons INSIDE the bubble? This particular auction has them inside the bubble, and I had no idea they were thrown in the bubble like that back in the day.

    Hmm, I don't think any weapons came in bubble, not sure though. Does anyone out there know of any G1 figures that came with the weapons INSIDE the bubble?

    There were lotsa figures that had a secondary bubble for guns/accessories, but I dinna remember any actually inside the main bubble. They were always in the baggie with the catalog and instructions off to the right, no?

    Not sure if this is going to be helpful to you. But I think the KO Swoop had the accessories inside the bubble like that. So my thinking is that the original dinobots were packaged like that. Somebody with a MISB G1 dinobot might want to check it out.

    Yeah, I always thought the accessories came in a separate bag or separate bubble next to the main one. Hmmm....

    I'd be wary since he calls the auction MISB, but that Snarl is quite clearly not in a sealed box.

    That said, I don't know anything about the Dinobots in their packaging. Never got any back when they were first out.

    I clearly remember my Slag having the weapons in the bubble back in the late 80ties when i got him.

    All the dinobots had their weapons inside the bubble. The autobot cars were in plastic bags, decepticon jets were in the secondary bubble. Most everyone else had them sealed in plastic bags like the autobot cars, with the exception of the targetmasters and the regular pretenders which were in a secondary bubble like the decepticon jets
