    Is this real vintage or a fake?

    It is being sold as a sealed bubble on card but tape dried sellotape on the box sides....

    Real G1 or fake?

    I have a pre-rub that is sealed to a gray backer card. This is a rub version box. Ask for a picture of the date stamp which can be taken through the bubble.

    Grey backer card won't necessary imply 1984 or pre rub release, it looks legitimate enough to me? Certainly, the box is vintage,

    All the best
