    I don't recall G1 Prime coming with the Autobot stickers applied to the cab. And it definitely looks to me like the tape on the left side has been lifted.
    Having said that, he doesn't actually say it's factory sealed anywhere in the auction.

    Sellers description...."Autobot Commander Optimus Prime from Hasbro's Generation One Transformers, 1984. Optimus Prime is mint in the box with original tape still securely fastened on both sides of the box. Everything on the box is intact. I have taken pictures of all sides of the box you can see the condition of the corners, etc and also the closeups of the original tape."

    If nothing else, it is a little misleading.

    The item is also listed as NEW.

    Correct, the KO Prime has the sticker applied to the cab.

    To me it looks like the left end-flap spine has a white line running down it on the 1st & 2nd picture. Maybe the box was opened and the sticker was applied, or the Prime was switched out?

    The box appears to be real, and the price tag has the correct price for a Prime back in the day.

    I did notice the copyright information on the back has a black box around it! My Prime doesn't have this black box. :inquisiti
