    Hi all. I have a quick question concerning Rodimus Prime. How can I tell if the Rodimus Prime I have is the original or the re-issue. Until today I didn't realize there was a re-issue version. But now that it has come to my attention I'd like to be sure of which I own. Any help is appreciated.

    quite a few ways. when you go to transform him, and extend the body up, is the rectangular cavity in the yellow plastic facing forwards or backwards? Facing forwards, that's normal. facing the back, that's a re-issue.

    look at the eyes. on the original, they should be a blue line between two squinty-looking eyelids. on the reissue, the top eyelid has been painted blue instead, to give him a less squinty look.

    I know the hasbro reissue had both these changes, but I can't be sure of the japanese reissue, as I don't have it.

    Check the copyright stamp. The original version isnt made in China. All of the re-issues are.

    Thanks. Just wondering then what would be the difference in value between the original G1 and the re-issued version?
