    To those of you that have found one, how many pieces of tape were sealing the red flap on the box? I've seen boxes with just 2 pieces of tape, near the top and bottom, but I've also seen them with 4 pieces of tape, 2 pieces overlapping, and 6 pieces of tape with 3 pieces overlapping near the top and bottom. Anyone see similar things?

    Mine had 2 pieces of tape sealed and Grimlock was put in backwards. I know it wasn't a return because I waited as TRU unloaded them off of the truck. My guess is factory QC checking.

    You can even see some of the taping variations within the eBay auctions.

    I honestly wouldn't trust those - ebay isn't exactly scammer free

    Mine has two pieces of tape on the red flap and two on the white flap. I haven't opened mine yet.
