    Highlights:

    - Encore Sky Lynx will have a bit more detail, especially around his eyes and his interior.
    - USA Edition Starscream will use the Japanese mold as opposed to the one used for the US release, which had some slight changes to the tailfins.
    - Incinerator's Japanese release will be much closer to the Ospreys shown in the Movie, being a different colour and having a tampo with the numbers on the side that match the ones seen in the Movie.

    Uh, why the hell call it USA edition if it's not actually going to be the US version?

    I dunno, ask that red Armada Thrust USA edition that we never saw in this country.

    I only have the "true USA" MP Starscream, can someone enlighten me on what changes were made to the tailfins? I don't see anything obvious on mine.

    Yup because it sounds better than "Oops We really Screwed The Pooch On The Last One" Edition

    Good thing they announced the details of the Ospray before he was released, might just pick up the Takara/Tomy one instead.

    As far as I see the only difference is the little 'points' on the vertical stabilizers are longer and more pointed on the Japanese version (it's not noticeable unless you have them side by side).

    Takara must've read my mind on the Osprey. I'll save my money for that release. ^_^

    10 to 1 they won't pick up on the improvements of the Starscream mold.

    I thought that might be it. Looks like some sharp points were blunted a bit. If that's the price for not poking my skin or catching my clothes, I'm all for it. :)

    yep, but we decided to not show them off to anyone. we aren't trying to always encourage more people to join our site or anything, so we figured it wasn't necessary. :p

    Improvements were already apparent when they released Skywarp, there's nothing to worry about.

    Didn't the Hasbro version have more since some Skywarps still had issues?
