    Hi guys sorry if this has been asked time and time before but I searched and I couldn't find an answer. Is there a list or somewhere that I can figure out if I have a G1 or a reissue? Is this something simple or am I just an idiot? The specific toy in question is a g1 soundwave. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Not very good footage, but it sounds like he explains the differences..

    If the copyright said made in Japan, then it's the original G1. If it made in China, then it's the Reissue.

    Pics would help.

    The main tell is the front. The window and the chrome buttons. I would think made in Japan sections can be added on to increase value depending on how you got it.
