    been trying to research this and havent come up with anything.

    the premium series best buy type packaging version vs the sam's club 3-pack with arcee, voyager starscream and battle damaged optimus prime.

    was this just a straight repack or are there any differences?

    here is a link to the premium series version

    Premium Series Optimus Prime Limited Edition With Battle Damage - Transformers Transformers Movie 2007 Voyager

    here is a link of the sam's club 3pack

    Arcee & Optius are the same toys as the single packed Arcee & Battle Damaged Optimus.. but I did hear someone say once they thought the starscream had more paint on the legs in the 3 pack but I think that is just a running change on the mold as there seems to be a few tiny variations on the 2007 Voyager Starscream.

    Such as degree of weathering, eye colour, and plastic colour of the accent parts being a slightly darker brown or matching the rest of the body.

    I think these variations can show up in all packaging types though. but the darker brown accent colour might be a quirk of later release Japanese toys only.

    The single packaged Optimus Prime is officially named "Autobot Optimus Prime", and not officially part of the Premium Series. He was never released in the USA, only in Asia, though he does share his assortment number with Best Buy Premium Megatron and Ratchet.

    The toy itself should be identical to the three-pack one deco-wise.
