    Yes, the Ironhide Chinese re-issue can have a pre rub vehicle inside a ® box.

    Ironhide's rubsign is placed on the slanted part of the roof, directly above the windshield.

    If anything, its a "post-rub" release where Hasbro discontinued the use of rubsigns realizing that knockoffs were no longer a threat by the early to mid 90's when these came out in China.

    An excellent article I ran into yesterday:

    I've seen only 3 examples of a pre rub vehicle inside a factory sealed box with a ®. I still question whether there was left over pre rub vehicles that were placed in ® boxes at the factory.

    Crazy? Da King will spare you!

    Recognize.....It's a clarinet, not a flute!

    *You know the Sexy Chica will cut you!*

    I have one of these ironhides graded AFA 85 and it clearly says CHINA on the grade. It also says w/ rub sign but I cannot see a rub sign. Unless the rub sign is on Ironhides roof, if that is the case how can anyone see the rub sign. I just think something is shady with AFA and these chinese market transformers. If someone can tell me how to link pics on here I can post the pics of my Ironhide. When you hit insert image it asks you for a URL cant you just insert and image saved on your hard drive?
