    I got an Optimus Prime Alternator for Christmas, but I noticed something interesting about it. This may be a little hard to explain, but I'll try. I can post pics later if it will help. The lip of the plastic cover that hold the top of the packaging on the cardboard boxing is on the outside of the boxing all the way around. Does anyone think this could make this more valuable as a rarity defect in the package?

    Ok, just thought I'd check before I took it out to try it out. All my Alternators are still in boxes but I've taken out at least once to try it out.

    I don't think there's really much of a market for packaging variants among TF collectors. I know there's one or two people here that care about them, but I think that's it.

    Targetmaster Hot Rod variants might be an exception. But I know that you already know that :p
