    You can't tell the difference. These ones are exact.

    Yours is original. This is the 3RD time you've asked this question. I've made it clear in my last 2 responses.

    Where the windows for Constructicons #4 and #5 (I don't remember their names) meet the big artwork for Devastator there is a sliver of space. That space should be filled in grey. The repro boxes are not gray. Their space looks like the rest of the box, a purple gridwork pattern.

    AS SIMPLE AS POSSIBLE. Look at Devastators gun/rifle in the artwork/ picture on the front. LOOK TO THE LEFT. Is grey touching the gun, or purple gridwork?

    The box is not a perfect reproduction. Thank God.

    That is very good to know. I was talking with one of the producers of the box the other day and he was telling me that he was doing a comparson with a G1 version in hand and that there were no differences between them. Guess he was wrong and missed that big gray patch.

    Go figure.

    Spencer - this should be merged with the sticky
