    Hi there, I have read that nearly all of the european boxed soundwaves that come with buzzsaw with painted decals are a HK (or chinese) reissue from the 1990's. However I also read somewhere that the UK version released in 1980's also had a painted buzzsaw. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to spot the difference?

    The one I have has "1986 Hasbro Bradley INC" on the copright line on bottom of the box?

    Thanks

    My original Buzzsaw (UK) had stickered wings, so that last piece of info you stated is off.

    thanks for the reply, what I meant was that some of the later UK versions, not all uk versions. I got the inof from this page:

    Chinese cassettes

    if you scroll down to the section "The Printed Buzzsaw version"

    My childhood Buzzsaw was the same as Ramrider's, the bottom one in the pic. That was the site I thought of before I clicked the link. Not really sure why I've posted this as it's no real help I'm afraid.
