Basically... I had a Starscream boought for me for my ? birthday back in'th day. My parents obviously threw out my old toys against my will back then as i grew older. However i've always wanted a Starscream G1... Just last week i won one on Ebay.. Won it for £18.50 all in.. with instructions, fists, landing gear etc.. just one of the larger missiles missing. *figured i could fetch later if need be from somewhere.* Anyways.. to the point.. It has No Rub sticker... and it is stamped on the body with "Takara Co. Ltd. 1980,1983.Japan" and i've since read about this ol "pre rub" business... Anyways.. its no biggy for me really as i have him now.. but i was just wondering if anyone could direct me to or give me some definitive info on "pre rub" starscreams and how to identify one.. and also to maybe identify if parts have been replaced. I had a short walk around via google and started a little reading on the subject but found not exactly enough for what i think i want to know. lol. Hence my prescence here now. Muchos appreciated for you guys reading. Thanks.
