    there are some differences.

    most obviously, windcharger's face is not painted.

    Second, the sticker quality is inferior to any other release of the figures.

    the plastic is different, resulting in bumblebee and cliffjumper having trouble standing up at times.

    And the joints are... say it with me now... FLOPPY! :D 

    Still, for those of us without the dosh to get the real thing off Ebay, they're a great nostalgia item. :D

    Mine don't have floppy joints, and can stand up just fine. My G2 Bumblebee on the other hand....

    I should note it's only my Bumblebee's left arm (the in and out, not the "articulation" and foot (it keeps wanting to slide back in) and my Cliffjumper's legs (same). Windcharger is fine. Didn't get brawn - always loved the character, hated the toy.

    Yeah, my Bumblebee had an arm that would flop out too easily. My advice? Don't use 'em for keys that you use often. I had it on my work keyring, and the keying tab broke. Luckily, I bought a back-up.

    The joints on mine are absolutely solid.
