    Hello everyone!

    A friend of mine down here in Florida just sent me a picture of this. He found today Legends Tankors, with Jetfire's name on the front of the box. The figure was not a return; it was completely mint, and was a factory error.

    I haven't heard of anyone finding an error in the current Legends figure's packaging until now. Has anyone else seen Legends figures with the wrong name inside the box? Either way, it's kind of funny. :lol  :) 

    Here's the photo:

    Does the back have Tankor's bio and picture?

    :lol  The figure isn't mine, but, I appreciate the thought! :) 

    According to my friend, yes, it does still have Tankor's box-back. :)

    I saw one at Walmart the other day like that. At first I thought it was our local repacker that struck again. The bio card on back is correct. Only the front bottom part is wrong with Jetfire's name on it. There was another Tankor there but everything was correct on that one.

    Well there goes your kid's college funds. You could have made a mint..

    oooh that makes it a little less rare, but still worth a bit. maybe $100

    So just a one-off case of the wrong cardboard insert.

    Unlike the European "Detour" Dead End, which was available in considerable quantities before it got fixed.

    Weird, Up Here In Michigan We Have DOZENS Of Tank-Fires Just Like That!
    Since There Here Common That Makes It Much Less Rare, Probably $50.

    That's normal. Tankor is who Jetfire's spark is put into after he dies in the movie.
