    Just received a MISB TFC #13 Rodimus.

    The flaps have two pieces of tape on each side for a total of four pieces of tape.

    Are there supposed to be four pieces of tape, or has this item been resealed and passed off as MISB?

    Everything else is pristine and untouched.

    Was $21 a good price for him? It seemed so at the time.

    I believe some have no tape, some are single tape, and it wouldn't surprise me if some are double taped. Since it was double taped on both ends, I'd guess it was a factory thing (who cuts both sides of a box and doesn't leave any obvious "it's been flattened" signs?)

    $21 is a good price, whether it's been opened or not.

    I had a Prowl which had no tape at all, so it wouldn't surprise me if yours was legit.

    To be honest, I'm really not all that fond of Rodimus as a character, but the price was low and I'm looking for MISB reissues for a display.

    I've gotten TFC reissues from BBTS with double, single, and zero tape.

    I had the same thing on my Starscream, I figured they did the thin tape on top because they added the DVD and then taped it by hand.
