I'm fairly certain my Battle Cat was part of the first run. No "Original" starburst, and the tape on the white box was a little yellowed, like it has been when I've purchased older MOTUC figures from resellers like BBTS.
There was absolutely nothing wrong with my Battle Cat, though. Other than the helmet not being seated right in the package, that is. Since I was going to take him out of the package, I've got no qualms with that.
