    Shiny paint jobs, closer to movie accurate. Leader Optimus Prime even has the sword and remolded head to look more like he did in the movie. Other than that they are the same toys that were previously released.

    More paint detailing primarily, to make them look more accurate to the movie characters. Movie Prime is the only say far that is a remold. He's got the armsword (no gun though), and a remolded head. I also belileve he also has a new autobmorphing sound too. I can't say the same about Megas, but his color scheme is MUCH better.

    You've also got Bumblebee sporting his armored head sculpt from the Stealth version of the figure.

    Nothing at all except for additional paints which really does not warrant calling it Premium. If that's their standards for what Premium should be like then were doomed.

    Sorry for asking but I just wanted to know if I might want to get them or not cause I already have the orignal ones. I'm really liking the new Megatron paint scheme and I also like that Prime comes with the sword but I heard you can just get that on ebay. Thinking I might just pick on Megatron and Stealth Bumblebee.
