So I recently picked up a "MISB" Special Mission Brazil set.

Like 75% of the boxed stuff out there, it was a reseal. I'll probably try to return it to the seller who I presume "had no idea."

Anyway, before I return it, I'm curious about something. This is my first SMB set, and I wanted to know if this was legit. The rear row of figures is stapled to something or has something stapled to it:

I've never seen "staples" used in any packaging or inserts. It seemed odd. Is this normal or more restoration of some kind by the seller?

If he refuses a return, I'll open it and investigate myself. But until then, I don't want to break the tape seals, even if they're reglued.

Just checked mine and it's got staples too. Must be a production thing.

Hmm I am pretty sure mine doesn't have staples. I know for a fact the one I sold didn't because the glue was coming up and staples would have held it down.

how much did you pay for it?? the last few i saw on ebay seemed to go pretty cheap. You might actually make more money than you actually paid for it by piecing the figures out and selling them as misbubble. After all, you never see these figures sold mib individually.

I just find it hard to believe that his would have staples in the exact same spots with the exact same orientation as mine. I feel like these came with staples in those spots.

Could be a production change midway through. Its not like the first time that has happened. The only bad thing about piecing them out is you would have to cut them. They came on the rows glued down.

And the file cards are printed on the back of the insert they are on... thus making them Red Backs in a package. The files also don't match to where they are on the cards, so cutting them won't necessarily be a good idea.
