    Hi there,

    I was wondering if the (official) Reissue Metroplex and Sky Lynx boxes/styrofoam are the exact same size as the original G1 issues from the 80's?

    Can anyone tell me for sure?

    I've got an ORIGINAL Metroplex and Sky Lynx box...but no styrofoam. I was wondering if the reissue one would fit in either of them?

    :)

    The reissues come with plastic inserts not styrofoam unfortuantely.

    Bummer. Would they fit the original boxes though?

    My reissue Metroplex's box is more compact than my original US G1. It might be the same size as the original Japanese box though.
    As for Sky Lynx, I have no idea.
