    Ha its not one of "those" Jetfire questions... Anyways...

    I know Jetfire had 3 releases:
    - US Hasbro
    - Canada Hasbro
    - Europe MB

    I already know there are 4 base versions that were released in the US:
    - plain-wing Bandai square logo
    - plain-wing Bandai word logo
    - Matshurio painted Macross
    - Matshurio sticker Macross

    My question is, did (any of) these extra versions show up in Canada and European releases? Or did they primarily just get a certain version?

    There was also a European post-MB release, multilingual packaging.

    Unfortunately I have not owned enough Jetfires to be able to provide any further variant info, but I'd be hugely surprised if the Matsushiro version was ever available outside North America.

    All the best

    Interesting... that makes it easier for me at least. However still unknown which Bandai one showed up in MB or CA then.

    Are any pictures of this tri-lingual Jetfire online somewhere? I am not familiar with it I don't think.

    Ya I have the Canadian one... Ah so the Europe quad-linqual is just the MB box with a Hasbro logo. I have a feeling this will take me a while to acquire all of these lol.

    In this instance it does appear that the post-MB Quadlingual is the same as the MB one. Sometimes the precise language used on the back is not the same, for example in Spanish some say "Funcion" and some say "Cometido" on the techspec.

    They are pretty damn hard to find, especially Milton Bradley Jetfires, and you'll have to contend with quite a dedicated small group of MB collectors who do pay out a lot for these toys.

    All the best
