    It'd be a KO. In the KO vs. Legit thread, Zap Dragon said that the KO bubble outlines the figure only while the original is the whole back

    What about the people with the cases of Gig sideswipes and the cases of sky garrys and the cases of jazz's? CZ 10 - HS17 -5 :D

    It's obviously a KO because the originals had styrofoam in the case. This one is Vaccu-formed.

    No they didn't. The only Swoop I'm aware of to come in Styrofoam was the Japanese release.

    This is a knockoff, though. The original 1985 release has the rub-sign visible on the wing from the packaging IIRC.

    And real MISB Swoops don't go for $65 :p

    No, US ones definitely didn't have styrofoam - you can check AFA'd Swoops on eBay to verify this.

    2 key indicators from the box's outside: the yellow glow by Swoop's left leg isn't as brilliant as the original and the color of the right corner of the box around the text, "Transforms from Dinosaur..." is darker compared to the original which isn't as black.
