    Hi guys, I am new to this site, but I have always lurked around but finally joined to see if I could get some genuine help.

    I ordered one of the last pieces of my Takara Encore series for my collection (I only need soundwave & cassette operation 1 now!)

    But I was kinda wierded out by the box art on this one. It looks like the two figures on the front of the box are "hand drawn" or pulled from a really crappy scan. Comparatively to all the rest of my figures, which seem to be photographs this ones box art doesn't line up.

    Help?

    Did you actually use Google Images yet to see how other Encore Skywarp / Thundercracker sets look like? Let me give you a hint: they look exactly like the one you are showing pictures of :) 

    As stated: you have the real thing!

    I did use google, and the quality of the photos did seem similar, but who knows if the images popping up are of fakes as well?

    I wanted to come to the source and get some advice from the pros!

    Also when it comes to the stickers of the set, the real set's are pretty bad.
