    I'm trying to find out how many different color variations the G1 Prime style cab has come in over the years. These I know for sure:

    Red (OG Prime)
    White (Magnus)
    Blue (Diaclone Magnus)
    Yellow (Special release Magnus?)

    Thinking about maybe....just maybe kitbashig a few of these colors

    There's also gold and silver chrome versions - gold was a lucky draw, produced in conjunction with the Generations book, the silver one is one of those unofficial ones, a so-called "Lunchtime Special" like the clear one.

    There's both official and unofficial version of the black one- official ones are Jafcon Primes, from (I think) a japanese convetion back in '02 or so. Unofficial ones just started popping up a few months ago.

    Varient hands, I think. The left has the larger posts in his fists to take the gun straight, the right is the earlier one that didn't have those so had to hold his rifle at an angle. Might also be the other version of the gun as well.
