    There are two versions out there, a Korean and a Japanese:

    Of the two pictured, (1) which one is which and (2) is there a difference in value?

    You've got two shots of the Japanese version of the toy, you'll fine a Sonokong logo on the box of the Korean version. What you're looking at there is the front vertical image and the back horizontal image, it's not like a USA toy with photos and descriptions of the gimmicks on the back. As for value, the toys are identical in shape and quality so I've seen no current difference in the value of the two version.

    I can't say specifically for Brave Max but generally in my experience the Japanese releases are worth more. In this case since its a highly desirable mold id think the difference would be small.

    Of the two pictured they appear to both be the Japanese version. The Sonoking box should have Korean writing on it rather than Kanji and katakana.

    I have a Korean one - there's really no difference since it's all officially licensed. At this point the value between two versions of Brave Max would be effectively equal, and I doubt most sellers would even make the distinction unless they're selling with the packaging.

    Even though there is absolutely no difference in quality (unless you count an upside down Autobot logo in city mode on the Korean version), the Japanese version typically sells for 10-20% more than the Korean one.
