    The ORIGINAL box said "Ages: 6 & Up" just like this one does...

    The way you can presently tell KO Swoops from real Swoops is that real swoops have the rubsign on the right wing:

    Fake Swoops don't:

    I'm not sure if it's that they don't have a rubsign at all, or if it's on the left wing instead.

    This one has it on the right wing, so (unless someone moved it to the other wing--pretty unlikely) it is real.

    You can also tell by the cut around the grey area. It's different on the KOs.

    Hmm, are you sure? I do have a g1 swoop box and as you can see here, it clearly says "ages: 5 & up"

    And I did saw some KO swoop with the rubsign on the correct ring.(I think they fixed it on later KOs)
    Unless g1 swoop come with two different version of boxes???????

    Yeah, there must have been a change during the run from 5 to 6 or vice-versa. The one I show as an example of a real Swoop I know 100% to be a real Swoop.
