    So i recently started collecting the Predator Euro exclusive figures and i had a question regarding the missiles. One of my first acquisitions was a lot with Skyquake and Snare. All the missiles i received in this lot were the same color and and matched up with the quantity i needed to have 2 complete figures. However, recently i found out there's a second color/mold of the Predator missile and i can't find a good source to see who came with which. Shmax has the light green missile listed for all Predators.

    The Snare i got in the above lot and Talon who i got recently in poorly titled ebay listing.

    Here are the two missiles in question up close.

    The dark green is a hair longer and has different molding around the middle and the bottom.

    Hoping you guys can help me out.

    I have a feeling the lighter ones are actually from Machine Wars Starscream.

    The light green one is from Machine Wars Starscream.

    Shmax.com: Part Details

    And the dark green one, despite the coloring on the following record (the camera used couldn't pick up greens very well):

    Shmax.com: Part Details

    is shared by all the Predators.

    The answer's been given, but repeated for truth
    All my predator missiles were dark green, in my youth

    well, found a dealer in the UK who had a stockpile of both missile types. Skyquake has been rearmed, Snare has been rearmed, Falcon is fully armed, Talon is fully armed, and i also acquired a complete Skydive too to finish off the gang! Just need 2 missiles launchers. god knows how long it'll take me to find those suckers.
