    hey all.

    just wondering how you can the difference between a original G1 prime, to an encore or reissue as such. i know the reissue has shorter smoke stacks. is there a difference between the encore and g1?

    Thanks

    There are a couple of easy tells:

    1) The front hubcabs are extended. This is because all reissues of OP use the Ultra Magnus version of the mold. (except some KOs)
    2) The shoulder autobot logo is stamped on the Encore version. G1 had a sticker for this.

    There are more differences, but these require extensive knowledge.
    If you want to know more here's a couple of resource links:

    yeah, the wheels are the dead giveaway, since every reissue is like that. encore prime's blue plastic is metallic too, which is easy to notice.
