    Yep, MW Starscream.

    Originally, the missiles were white, then later releases had the green.

    Check out this link for more info.

    How did those launchers pass regulations with such small missiles?

    The toy laws/regulations have gotten stricker since then, and one of the things that's changed is that missles have to be larger than they were back then, and some other stuff (think the missle length has bo be at least 3" or something like that).

    In this case, I believe it is because the launchers (rotary bomb racks) are not spring-loaded. The Machine Wars Optimus Prime had longer missiles for the spring-loaded launchers it had. (And as a result lost the auto-feed missile racks that the Thunderclash toy had.) :(
