Could someone with a BotCon box set (preferably the Generation 2 or Shattered Glass ones) tell me the dimensions of the box? Trying to plan ahead for postage boxes here

Hey, HD!
Could you remind James of the [moderator's edit: stuff] I wanted to get from him?

Did any Hasbro toys actually have this box art in 1985? My toys from that year, either boxed or carded, all had the original version. Maybe it didn't get to the MB market?

It's not Hasbro's, it's the Takara Japanese 'boxart'. That's why Jetfire, Shockwave, the Deluxe Insecticons and Deluxe Autobots are missing and replaced by Devastator, the individual Constructicons and Swoop. I think the caption in the book is misleading.

The caption is accurate, but doesn't explain the context. So what they said was true... from a certain point of view.

I recently purchased an MIB Smallest Transforming Hot Rod and noticed that a lot of the seller's other TFs are KOs.

Has Smallest Transforming Hot Rod been known to be KO'd? Thanks.

He hasn't. There are however KO versions of the Seekers.
