OK I have read through the various threads on the subject but not 100% sure on my Encore Metroplex. I just shipped my pile of loot from BBTS so I just received him yesterday. The gridlines on my box aren't entirely gray. They have a touch of white to them. The Takara Tomy logo's white online is dead center. It's not misaligned. I have the H2208 date stamp but there is no rectangular indention around it. Judging from what I have read, I believe mine to a legit Encore but I would like for someone to verify this. I don't have any pics available but will supply more info if needed. Thanks!
