Nah no knock offs that I know of. He's sold a heap of them, so other people seem to be confident of this as well. Get in quick man, only 4 left!

Australia seems to have missed out on that two-pack. All I remember seeig on the shelves was a Prime and Magnus (ultra rare), Magnus and Skywarp (rare). AFAIK and as whoopy said I don't think it's a fake/KO.

Yeah, we didn't get that Jetfire/Dinobot 2 pack.

Also, I don't recall Ultra Magnus and Skywarp being rare at all. They were quite plentiful and in fact took some time to sell. I remember passing up on that set a lot of times because I wanted Skywarp, but I didn't want Ultra Magnus. In the end I caved and bought the set for Skywarp. Ironically I've since sold my Classics Skywarp (after getting Gentei Skywarp) but have kept Ultra Magnus. But I certainly don't remember that set being rare or anything.

I don't know if the Skywarp / Magnus 2-pack was rare in my area (I do recall seeing it a couple of times at Target Castle Hill), but it's massively inflated value on eBay leads me to believe it was everywhere else.

Like you Goki I passed on it because I had no interest in Magnus and held out for an individual release of Skywarp to complete my '84 seekers (according to a regular board member this should have happened last September). Unfortunately I am still Skywarp-less

Any chance you could upload a larger photo? It's kinda hard to read the fine print on the packaging on such a low resolution. I've never seen that box before, AFAIK Diaclone Jet Robo High Speed Fighter Type in box should look like this, and that looks totally different. I can't see any Takara logo on the box, but again, hard to tell at that small image size.
