    The missiles for the reissue version are longer, 2" actually, and rounded on the tips. That and the cut stacks make up the changes they had to make for a US release.

    on a totally different note... how can we differentiate KO gestalts from original ones?

    a KO devastator looks like an original one imo

    The KO ones don't have any metal, and it's hard to tell in pics but the stickers aren't identical either...similar but not identical. Devestator is the hardest one to tell the difference, the other combiners knockoffs are colored differently (Defensor) or have mismatched members (Menasor with Afterburner and Nosecone)
