    Hi everyone,

    Just wondering if anyone knows of any articles or have any advice on identifying reseals on old G1 figures? I've just purchased a couple of figures I've been after for ages and want to be sure that they are legit when they arrive. I can think of a couple of tell tale signs but want to have as much information as possible so that I can give them a thorough inspection! Any help greatly appreciated.

    Hasnt been update in a while but
    HIGHENDTFS.COM<br> G1 Counterfeit ID Guides for identifying kos. There are many G1 face book groups also that can help identify.

    If you are looking to see if the box has been opened look for a break in the paint on the front corner of the flap.
