A Question about sticker for #10143 UCS Death Star II

wagnerml2wagnerml2 Belleville, IllinoisMember Posts: 1,376
I have one of these that I am selling and the seals have dried out.  Everything else inside the box is sealed.  Buyer is asking for a pic of the sticker, but I cannot find it with the manual outside the sealed inner boxes.  Does anyone know if the sticker is supposed to have been on the outside of the boxes or on the interior of one of them?  I am going to investigate when I get home taking everything out of the outer box to see if the stickers are stored below the inner boxes, but I'm not sure where I'm supposed to be looking.  Any help is appreciated.

    Perhaps there are some old YouTube reviews that show where? Sadly missed out on this one due to dark ages.

    Believe it not, I spent a good hour yesterday searching for the answer through Google and You Tube videos.  I cannot tell you how many minutes of old footage I put myself through.  Came up with nothing.  Seems reviews back then are nothing like they are now.

    I do however have an opened outer-box one with sealed inner boxes.  I am almost positive I opened the outer-box just to see what the inner boxes looked like.  How dumb was I?  Did the same with my #10129, just to check it's sticker was intact and not bent in half.

    When I can get access to it I'll have a look for you.

    Yeah, these days some reviewers take half an hour just to open the box.

    Did exactly that back in the day with my UCS 10179 to see the X/#10,000 certificate number. DOHHHH. Never built it, and sold it on several years ago. 
    I actually still own a 10143 UCS Death Star II but, unfortunately for the TS, it IS still MISB and in the original packing carton.

    It's the moment the set's resale value drops like a stone, so obviously the reviewers are going to milk it...

    If it's a big set, that is. On he smaller ones, I don't know - pad out the run time so they get ad revenue from viewers who want to watch a second review?

    I know that 10030 and 10188 both had their stickers within the white boxes... if this helps at all.

    I would take a safe bet that it is inside the inner boxes.

    I dunno why, they seem pretty easy to open for thieves
