    I'm entirely sure if it is the reissue or not but regardless of that, 20 bucks for it is a pretty good deal

    thats the reissue. The original didnt had chromed stacks, and they were larger, plus the front grill had less chrome

    It is the real deal from the looks of it...

    I have three of those reissues and just the vehicle mode of the cab has diecast, and it looks like that one does it also has the chrome stacks and grill. It is real...

    It looks like the reissue to me, but I'm less versed in the little details like some of others are. Although I don't believe any version of this figure had clear windows, since there's no open space in the chest.

    And for anyone bidding, watch out for the $15 shipping charge.

    I've got the Japanese one. That auction is accurate. In vehicle mode, Ginrai has a diecast front, similar to G1 Prime. The windows are translucent blue, and the stacks/grille are chromed. In robot mode, Ginrai has blue stickers on his chest to simulate windows.

    It's the real deal.

    That's part of the point... he thought that maybe the seller was *gasp* lying. It's been known to happen on eBay...

    But yeah, it is the reissue.:)

    ah well if that's the question, conclusive evidence (other than already posted) that it's NOT the original cab is that it had red eyes and not blue eyes. (excluding kitbashing etc.)

    The windows on the reissue are dark enough to look opague in some lighting. I can tell by the headlights, that it's the reissue. original PM Prime's headlights weren't attached to the grill. like that.
