    I'm looking to beef up my sealed/boxed G1 collection & once in awhile I run into auctions for TFs that are graded by AFA with the note "Hand Cut Box"

    I figure maybe these were boxes that came out of the presses with a bit of excess carboard on them that needed to be trimmed by hand? Or could these be first run Packaged Production samples that were hand assembled before the toy went into full production?
