    Looks like Encore Mouth is different from the original:

    That encore mouth looks terrible. It looks as though he just ate something sour.

    Yeah, I wasn't sure my eye deceive me or not. So I posted the pics as a comparison from Seibertron.com pic and the link provided by Microlone to the Encore pic.

    heres another set of pics from that same blog showing the individual bots and vehicles side by side, from those shots the colour whilst not identical does have that almost toxic glowing colour that gives the devastator toy a lot of its distinctivness. the sculpts look tight, much neater than say piranacon or bruticus reissues, hes an all new mould maybe?

    the puckered lips on the head arent quite accurate but on a face even the slightest change can make the face look very different, it does give him a different feel but im not complaining.

    It must be the lighting but I never recalled G1 Devi to look so yellow. Especially Scavengers escavator arm. The only savign grace is that the G1 figures look to have that yellow plastic too so it may just be the lighting.

    It could be the lighting, but the original Devy seems to be slightly darker shade of green.
    Some parts like Scrapper's canopy and Scavenger's shovel really look discolored to me.

    the original one does look deeper but they are pretty close which is a good thing, i was expecting it to be that brighter green rathe like the horrid KO's, i grew to detest any devastator that colour! :)  I think im especially impressed with the sculpt though, it does look very tidy.

    Is it me or is some of the plastic a different shade of green? Looks cheap and nasty.

    We should also consider age. The original may look a bit darker, but it's 25+ years old and we're comparing it to a brand new set. Btw, I like the head sculpt. I'm not bothered about the mouth.

    The KO is still available, cheaper and looks like the original.

    The original is the same way, for the Scavenger scoop, Bonecrusher and Scrapper roofs, Long Haul crotch plate and wing missiles. Different, more flexible plastic is used for those parts.

    ...but still a KO, which doesn't fly with many folks.

    Can't wait for mine (in transit from RK) to do a comparison with the OG(1).

    IMO A G1 reissue is on the same level as a KO in my book. Only ones I would have displayed in my collection are the eHobby recolor reissues, KO recolors, and dino cassettes. Other than those, there are to many great condition originals out there to settle.

    Besides, to originals always have cleaner molds. Especially the encores. The Dreamwave and TRU reissues were better, but still not the same as an original.

    I do own many reissues, but I use them for customs.
