As the title says, can anyone advise what are the differences?
Um, well one is new, the other is not? Sorry, that's all I got.
Well if it is a pre-rub then the date stamping will be similar to Diaclone. Circle with "TAKARA" in the middle.
Dont know what the date stamp is on the takara reissues.
... the price?
Seriously though, I won't be much help for this, so hopefully someone who knows more about Hound's details will appear.
His head. The original's face sculpt is worlds better. G1 hound had a great head design, I dislike the reissue so much I just bought another G1 and gave thr Reissue away.
1- the stamping should say "Japan" the reissue says china
2-early pre rubs do not mention hasbro later g1 and reissue will say hasbro in the stamping
3- vintage has crisp sculpt detail in the face, the reissue has soft lines due to mold degradation
4-Tires in the reissue are a bit larger than the original.

Just grabbed this off my shelf and snapped a quick (crappy, sorry!) cel phone pic. Stamp on the Takara reissue:
Some Chinese writing (I hope I'm right...afterall I am Chinese, just no good at reading/writing it lol)

I don't know if this thread is still alive, but I have question about a (possible) reissue Hound.
I recently bought this one off ebay. The seller said that it was a vintage G1, but I have my doubts.
What do you guys (and girls) think?
Thanks for your help.
Here are the pictures:
That's a reissue.
China on the coyright = reissue TFC/Dreamwave version
Yes definitely reissue. You can also tell by the smooth face if no copyright pics are posted.

What "Dreamwave" version? His package art has been done by Hirofumi Ichikawa, who has never in his life worked for Dreamwave.
Yep, that's a reissue. The yellow stripes on the Jeep's hood were stickers on the vintage. Only the reissues have them as tampographs.
Thanks for the replies.
Just a fandom name for the Takara TFC reissue line as some of the box art came from some of the artists at Dreamwave.
Plus the word Dreamwave is awesome.
Or, more correctly, "Takara decided to use already existing art by Pat Lee originally created for the covers of the first Dreamwave mini so they wouldn't have to commission new art, but had Hirofumi Ichikawa do the artwork for toys with no suitable existing Dreamwave cover artwork".
Too bad the company ended up being such a bad joke.
Cool stories, awesome artwork = disagree
