    Right, so there are a couple of things I need help with and I've been putting off making these topics for some reason. I figured I'd merge the two and just make one thread.

    First up, I need to know what the date stamps on G1 Hound, Sideswipe, and Red Alert are supposed to look like and where they should be located. Pics would help big time here, but if you know the info off-hand that may work too.
    Also, is there anything that could help me determine if this Hound I have is vintage or a reissue?

    Another thing. Does anyone have the inserts for an Alternator Nemesis Prime? If so I need a pic of the tray part that's on the inside. I'm trying to sell the box to someone and the only part missing is this tray. I've found a couple trays but since I don't have NP anymore I have no way to test which one is the right one.


    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks. :D

    Off the top of my head, reissue Hound has a much softer, less angular, less robotic looking, face and a fairly distinct mesh pattern on the headlamps

    I went ahead and took some pics of my own.

    Here is hound. The date stamp looks nothing like the ones above. So which version is this?

    [​IMG]

    Red Alert. I couldn't even see the date stamp on this one until I took a flash picture. :lolol 

    [​IMG]

    One Sideswipe.

    And a second Sideswipe.

    Thanks for all the help so far. :D 

    Still wondering about the Alt Nem tray too. :thumb
