    I was wondering if anyone could help me out. I have a Takara C-77 Rodimus, and I was trying to verify that it was the reissue, the only date that I can find on the box says Copyright Hasboro (mispelled) 1986. But finding pictures of original Rodimus' the Takara symbol is different than on mine. Mine has the plain Takara logo as opposed to the Takara logo with the little black character on it. I'm at a loss, anyone know what sets the reissue apart?

    Ebay:
    plastic tray=reissue. Styrofoam=original. That's not true for sixshot. I think the box, toy and insert are identical for that one - the only true reissue. But don't quote me on it.

    Ok, it's what I was figuring, I got him off of ebay for the normal reissue price. The seller didn't sound like he really knew what he had, and the 1986 copyright was really throwing me for a loop. I didn't want to open him up until I was 100%. Thanks for the help.
