    One word: Box art.

    Is the Box Art on the box in English or Japanese. The Japanese one is made by Takara, and thus will have a Takara stamp.

    If the box art is in English, it is manufactured by HAsbro and thus will have a Hasbro stamp.

    I think the original poster means Encore Optimus Prime, which only came in Takara Tomy packaging, and therefore would be in Japanese. I took a look at my Encore Prime and my New Year's Optimus Prime that came out a few years back and they both only have the Hasbro trademark on the trailer, and nothing on the cab. The trailer was molded from the G2 trailer and thats why I believe it has the 1992 Hasbro mark on it since that was the last time the G1 Prime mould was used before he started getting reissued from 2000 and onwards.




    And not to nitpick, but box art is actually two words :D
