    I am about to make payment on this sealed G1 Swoop. The box it comes in is vintage; there's even a Toys'R'us sticker at the bottom. Knowing that a KO Swoop can easily be placed in a vintage box though, I am weary about my G1 purchases.

    Can anyone with expert knowledge tell me whether the Swoop sealed inside is vintage G1, and not a KO? Are the stickers the tell-tale signs?

    the card Swoop is on looks aged as well, either a very well done KO, or it's legit. I say go for it!

    Well, according to what I've read, you can tell the KOs apart from the grid lines on the box art. KOs have this uneven 2 colored lining while Originals have solid lines.
