    guys, just wanted to know if there are any differences between the two versions. i'm talking about g1 vintage stuff. it seems that euro versions are slightly easier to find. i'm talking about the ones with the goldish color packaging. obviously i'd rather get u.s. g1 stuff but if the euro is exactly the same then it would suffice.

    They were released later (early 90s if I recall) as Classics or something along those lines. I think they're identical.

    In Spain and the UK (don't know if anywhere else), several G1 toys were re-released in the late 80's/early 90's due to popular demand. They also re-released Pretender toys without their shells in that line, for example Grimlock, Bumblebee, and Starscream. Some were reproduced by Hasbro, and some were leftovers simply repackaged, so they are as original as any other vintage G1 TF. There are no differences what so ever in terms of accessories, remoulding, colors, stamps and copyright markings, etc.

    Yes no problems at all... and actually Gold boxed classics aren't that easy to find... I'm still looking for a Gold Springer box and a mib Gold Classic O. Prime.

    In fact, I believe Gold Classics Prime goes for more on eBay than original Prime, every now and then.

    Some of the European Classics had the rubsign indents removed. The Throttlebots, and some of the Triple Changers come to mind.

    Can't remember too specifically however.

    That is correct. The Throttlebots had no indents. The main combiners, Combaticons, Aerialbots, Stunticons, & Protectobots just did not have the rubsign applied, though I have a Blast Off cockpit where the rubsign square is filled in. I have seen carded classics combiners go for $20 or so.
