The best way to check for authenticity is to look for the license sticker,
which should be a tiny square found on the front cover of the box, usually
with the Gundam's head prominently found on the sticker (depending on the
series upon which the product was licensing from). They've basically
done away with such stickers these days, so look for a tiny square printed
on the front of the box with a Gundam's head in it.
