This past year, I've been collecting G1 stuff and trying to pick between originals, official reissues and KOs. In cases where there are official reissues, it comes down to which reissue (Takara TFC, Hasbro, Takara)? My criteria are cartoon accuracy and face sculpts. So far I've found: 1) Jazz ->Takara. Don't go with Hasbro or TFC since the face has suffered from mold degradation. Takara Jazz has a new face and blue visor. 2) Prowl ->Original. All reissues suffer from mold degradation so the facial features are not well defined. See: 1984 Prowl - Prowl (1984) - Autobot Military Strategist - www.tfu.info 2003 Prowl - Prowl (2003) - Autobot Military Strategist - www.tfu.info 3) BlueStreak ->Original. Same reasons as Prowl. Sadly, I believe the e-hobby anime BluStreak also suffers from the facial mold degradation 4) Bumblebee -> Takara reissue. New cartoon accurate head and blue eyes and other extra painted features. 5) Inferno/Grapple -> Either TFC or Hasbro. They have toon accurate blue eyes and no obvious mold degradation. TFC has the nicer packaging. 6) Sideswipe -> Either TFC or Hasbro. They have toon accurate blue eyes and no obvious mold degradation. TFC has the nicer packaging. 7) Hound->TFC. I find the reissue's mold degradation somehow makes the face look better? Take a look here : Hound - Toy Gallery - Photo #78. 8) Slag and Swoop ->KO. The KO red faced Slag and KO Blue chested Swoop are toon accurate and well made. 9) Astrotrain-> e-hobby but expensive. Have you guys found any different?
