    For $200, you should have asked beforehand.

    I think it's a very tricky deal, but I hope you're lucky

    I just sent puff a message stating that the box's artwork is much more vibrant and full of color compared to the known reissues. thats all I really had to work with. I thought the KO's didnt come with rubsigns, but that was untrue.

    yeah, you should have asked before buying this. it looks real from the research i've done. pretty dangerous time to be buying a swoop though. do the reissues come with the paperwork other than the instructions? i thought they didnt. not that really means anything here. i thought the rub sign was one indication as well.

    I will take a look on the stamps under its wings.
    I hope that this time it was a tempestive BIN...
    if this was an KO, who cares! it's just a toy...so I would give it to a friend of mine,or a child in the city hospital..
    in alternative I have yet the gig and the Japanese version.
    sorry for my english guys,and thank you for your helpful comments!!

    It's real. Various ways you can tell:
    1) Inclusion of the Reinforcements from Cybertron booklet
    2) Rubsign on the correct wing
    3) Cut of the gray part around the window is the real one, not the KO one

    The seller has another dinobot MIB in the same condition. Also other MIB transformers. So that might help out a little bit.
