    That's right its Sealed bitches :dj 

    The reason I'm smiling from ear to ear is that the auction said it was MIB and purported to show pics of the contents, so imagine my surprise when I try to open it and find out its still sealed.

    I examined the tape and it does not look replaced or tampered with at all :rock  The only thing that springs to mind is that the seller was also selling a MIB regular Optimus Prime at the same time. Either way I don't care this thing is BEAUTIFUL!

    yeah it doesn't have the prepressed flap crease on the back and the inconsistent wear and fading doesn't suggest a knock off. Plus the stickers aren't blocking part of the window

    Also I don't think there have been any KOs made of the Pepsi prime ... but I could be wrong
