one thing i don't get, and to me this is a major thing. if these guys are supposed to be "experts" on all things toys, and they are the major graders out there, wouldn't they know that this sticker was applied later? even if the sticker was/is perfect, you know what would make me wonder? take a look at the actual price that's on the sticker!! $12.98 for a 12/21 back figure?? if i remember correctly, those figures were closer to $1.98 or $2.98 back in the day. no way my mom would have bought all the ones she did for me if they were $13 each back then. that's crazy. that should have been an absolute tip off for them to take a better look at that sticker. it was the first thing i noticed about it, to be honest.

nice detective work dale, and thanks for those pics  :D

I never pulled the sticker off. I had been removed before I got it. The surface of the card was torn and there was no residue that I could see.

As for the price tag. Wouldn't the price be in Yen, seeings as it's a Takara figure? Or were these available for sale in the US too?

Not sure if they were available during the vinty time era, maybe after market? Could be that some were brought over during the time.   :-\

that's probably an even better question than the actual price... what would a takara carded figure be doing at bradlee's???
