    About a year and a half ago I picked up a G1 Mirage (Goodyear tires variant) from the Pasadena Flea Market. Somebody at work told me that this was the Diaclone version. Is this true? Also, it does not have a rub symbol.

    Bought it loose with no accessories, I cannot remember if it came with all of the stickers, and I do not have a camera right now. Also, it does not have the HASBRO seal on the bottom it just has TAKARA 1982.

    this article should be of help.

    The date stamp is the best way to tell, it is completely different on a diaclone mold:
