    Maybe so, but the stickers are different shapes/sizes too. Better comparison shots would be helpful.

    I don't see the remould here.. I think the sticker sizes are different though..

    EDIT: Sorry Dark Prime I didn't read your post. I basically said the same thing you did. ;p

    And that is most definatly a remold. Compare the width of the sticker "mount" with the width of the rectangular sculpt directly above it.

    cool! a running change.

    not as cool as bendy prime's variation, but its cool they improved on the little details.

    now all they need to do is make prime's arm kibble fasten in place like bumble's and a-train's feet kibble :)

    So which one should I go for, or should I go for them both?
    Off topic, what's the bendy prime running change?

    There were two. One was the misassembled elbows (which seems to have been on very very few) which were corrected, and the other was having all four cyber planet key symbols painted on the truck, rather than only two.

    Correct me if I'm wrong - I often am. :)

    i think they were refering to the armada versions..

    first he had no autobot insignia and grey headlights

    then it was changed to yellow headlights

    then they added the autobot insignia


    btw...i have the remolded BB with proper sticker support :D

    This would fall under the category of "variant" ... much like Armada Sideways, Bendy Prime and his paint applications (in both Armada *AND* Cybertron).

    I wish my "Two of the same gun" Starscream was a variant :cry

    I may be wrong, too, but I thought it went from NO planet symbols to 4.

    There was also a change to having white paint decos on the sides of the chest and shoulder -- there was no paint there in the first version.

    I think there are actually 4 possible versions, given all the running changes.

    Looks like my BB is the 2nd version. Which is good.

    You think it would have been cheaper for Hasbro just to have moved the rub sign.

    I can just see someone at Hasbro HQ going "Damnit why didn't we think of that, and firing the person who ok'd the remold."

    Oh man, I'm really appreciative of what Hasbro is doing with this line! And Classics is one of the best TF line ever to come out in years. Kudos to Hasbro for the effort they're putting into this line!

    I doubt it. For this change I'm assuming all they needed to do was widen the vent on the existing mold once they noticed that it wasn't as wide as the sticker.

    its nice to see Hasbro trying to improve their product. I think we might be entering a period of TF's that will rival all other periods.
