    I recently bought a TFC #10 Soundwave on eBay. Until yesterday, I thought the TFC line was identical to the original toys. Now I see that the buttons are different between the two Soundwaves.

    I believe the buttons on the TFC Soundwave are identical to those on the Encore version. Are they the same toy but packaged different?

    If you want to get technical, a lot of the original toys aren't the same as the original toys. Fred's Workshop (the link ninety provided) is an excellent source if you're interested in all those little mould variations, he's always looking out for new ones.

    I always found it amusing the the TRU 'Classics' reissue Soundwave states quite loudly that it's exactly the same as the original G1 toy - even though it's a recoloured version of a recoloured, retooled version of the original toy, and it shows a pic of said original toy (or more likely a reissue) on the pop-up in the middle of pack... :p
