    I don't know if this is considered 'NEWS', but at TRU today I saw a Gravity Bot Battle Steel Optimus Prime. HOWEVER, the bubble area said Nitro Sideswipe. I inspected the card and it was not tampered with at all. I don't know how common this is. Good luck to all of you who collect packaging variants. I left the figure in the store, so if someone REALLLLYYYY wants me to pick one up for them, PM me and I can try (probably not before next Monday). Attached is the pic...

    EDIT: The title should say "Completionist", not "Completions" :)

    Generally I find that this sort of thing is considered a non-value-added 'Packaging Error' by most collectors, but if anyone out there is into it, happy hunting! (Though it's likely there aren't [m]any more).

    It's probably a one off

    Probably a one-off error package. It happens from time to time. However, if anyone else also spots this error and can provide proof I'll be happy to admit I'm wrong.
