    So I had a few years ago the Japanese C-310 Reissue of God Ginrai with God Bomber attachment, and had to get rid of it. Right now I am in the middle of a deal to get the TRU Reissue (from a few years back) of PowerMaster Prime, with Apex Armor. Are there any noticiable differences between the two of them? Is one considered "better" than the other? Thoughts? Opions? I know the American Reissues of the G1 guys have had alterations made to them that the Japanese ones did not have (longer missiles, shorter smoke stacks, etc.) Just wondering mainly if the TRU PM Prime has suffered this treatment.

    Thanks guys, I appreciate the help.

    just the missle for godbomber is changed. The TRU version is horribly elongated. doesn't bother me though, i look at as a harpoon cannon now!

    God Ginrai already has shortened smokestacks.

    i just got TRU PM OP myself and from all the hunting i went through (both for him and God Ginrai) at a decent price, i learned that there's not much of a diiference. as for that missile, i don't take it out of the box, so it's not on the figure as it's displayed on my shelf.

    at any rate, the TRU reissue is a great deal.

    The Takara reissue has a short chrome missile for God Bomber.
    The Hasbro on has a long gray missile for God Bomber
    The Hasbro version has a much cooler box IMO.
