    I would say it's nice, but I think I've seen that picture somewhere before (and no, it was not on ebay this past week)

    Me thinks this is something he bought, not selling. So, it's cool here. As far as I know that is.

    If there is gray between the gun art and Longhaul(#5), your fine its' legit. If it's purple gridwork like the rest of the box, its' a knockoff.

    From what I see, it's :thumb

    Man, IMO for the price you paid...that's a STEAL! I've been eyeing one for ages but in my country, it would cost around $300! :(

    Yep. http://cgi.ebay.com/G1-Devastator-Giftset-Box-for-MISB-Constructicons-Mint_W0QQitemZ330147044018QQihZ014QQcategoryZ4696QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    I thought it might be to good to be true so nice, so I checked them out and The one in question one looks real, though. the black on the original box goes down more and darker.

    I thought it might be to good to be true so nice, but damn, that is a steal! I paid $300 or so a couple years ago.

    Man, if it wasn't so buried, I'd post a pic of my Devastator giftset. I think it might win the prize for "Most Haggard Box". Seriously, it might grade a C-0.5 . A third of the box is missing, looks like someone ripped a portion of the right side, straight down clean off. The left has no flaps, and is squared off NEATLY! with hideous brown duct tap, to close the gap. The best part is the styrofoam. I used the styrofoam as a kid to launch THOUSANDS of bottle rockets-my bday is the 4th. Pieces blown off, billions of tiny holes, and the mf is scorched. I'm going to put the thing on ebay, but separate auctions. One for the box and one for the styro.

    Here's a before shot...

    I guess if it's authentic, in the eyes of a collector, then its good.

    HEY VNUTZ!!

    Look at the space between Hook(#4) and LongHaul(#5), where they almost touch the artwork of Devastator. On original, space is grey. On knock-off, it's purple gridwork-like rest of box. Yours is ORIGINAL.
