    Hello all, I have what I believe is a G1 Grapple which is complete, my question is this how many different Grapple have been made, I only know of 3--G1 Grapple, Hasbro Reissue, and the Takara Reissue, reason I am asking is that if I have authentic G1 Grapple would the date stamp say Hasbro and not just Takara 1980, 1982, any information would help thanks in advance

    from Fred's Workshop: The Grapple reissue seems to bear this out. It has the thick arm holes/head pegs...and the dual-holed shoulder assy previously found only on the G2 Inferno :)  Talk about mixing and matching! An interesting find; the grill is not melted in on the sides(merely screwed in on the center). The unit is stamped china, of course. One one odd thing; they didn't chrome the hook, or the crane-brace. But the crane ratchets now, so I guess it works out ;-)
    Hope that helps
