    Hey guys, someone emailed, showed me the pics, and was wondering if this was a KO, legit, rare Titanium G1 Ultra Magnus. I have never seen one and could not find it on googles. It's certainly not the standard/regular one. So does anyone have any idea, here are the pics:

    It has Two to Three different languages on the box. So I assume a UK or Canada box.

    Well, from reading the text on it, which mentions Habsro UK and Hasbro Canada, I'd take a leap and say it's international packaging. It certainly doesn't look like a knockoff, but I guess we can leave that up to someone more well-versed in these things.

    You have one or saw one?

    Sorry dude, I thought the forum board would automatically re-size itself, I guess even with that capability, it was still too big.

    Yeah, it's definitely international packaging but I never seen one. I don't want to give the person any wrong information.

    Gallob closed in 1998? Maybe Hasbro purchased them just like Micro Machine. I'm looking at Titanium War Within UMagnus, the instruction sheet copyright showed 2006, Galoob (TM), Micro Machine, Hasbro, etc.

    It was treated just like Kenner. It became a division of Hasbro. As mentioned in previous posts it's a Canadian box.

    Also no site I know of resizes the actual size of a picture unless the site hosts it and compensates for it. For looking forums will resize the picture to fit on screen only.
