    I'll take votes from everyone. Is there a way to add a poll?
    I can't decide which box to keep.
    [​IMG]
    First box:
    Little corner tear
    [​IMG]
    bent top corner
    [​IMG]
    slight tear on one flap, sticker on other
    [​IMG]
    very minor flap crease
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Second box:
    little dent (Appears to have black marker over to hide) and bent corner
    [​IMG]
    One side still sealed, other side flap has major hinge wear
    [​IMG]
    No flap crease!

    Also, I believe the curled sticker sheet is genuine and the flat one seems identical. Maybe one hundreth less shiny and it seems the underneath paper sticks out a millimeter at the bottom (Possibly shifted).
    Do you know how to spot the "repro"?

    Thanx to anyone who can help!

    Yeah, I'm really leaning towards the no flap crease also, it just makes me want to hit it from the back. lol
    Any info on the sticker sheets?
    Thanx!

    all g1 primes sticker sheets are curled from my experience because its rolled up like that. I dont have any bootlegs or repor labels but i heard there is a difference in the sticker/paper quailty and in thickness.

    Yeah, I wasn't sure if any sticker sheets might have been behind the foam, like they do with cars & such.

    by you saying "I don't know which box to keep", does that imply that you're looking to sell the other one? If so, please PM me.
