I finally got around to buying a Targetmaster Hot Rod reissue. I got it off an eBay auction listed as MISB for a pretty good price. However, as soon as I got it, it was clear the box is not sealed. Both the tape seal for the box and all the tape seals for the interior plastic have been cut. Even the plastic bag with the paperwork had obviously been opened. Everything is there and the figure itself appears to be virtually untouched, so I'm fine with it as is since I never planned to keep it in the box anyway. Thing is, considering I already know it's not quite what was described, I'm not certain I can trust the seller. The fact that it's a new user with only 8 ratings so far doesn't help either. I'd like to make sure I really did get an authentic item, and not just some knockoff swapped into the packaging. First off, I noticed that the three factory-applied stickers (the flames on the chest and the sides of the car) are replaced with paint applications. This was the thing that really got me suspicious. As far as I knew, all releases of G1 Hot Rod have stickers for these details. Is the TFC version an exception? The quality of the paint apps seems excellent, so I have a hard time believing it's a knockoff, but it was so unexpected that I have to wonder. Next, does anyone know if there are any G1 Hot Rod knockoffs out there? I've heard of the Alternator Rodimus knockoff and too many G1 knockoffs to count, but I've never heard of a G1 Hot Rod knockoff before. If there are any, is there any good way to tell one apart from the real thing? Thanks in advance for the help.
