    They're newer and they're in different boxes.

    They tweaked the colors slightly. Little bit lighter on Soundwave's blue, that sort of thing.

    we're very slowly getting info. so far we only have out-of-box pictures of convoy and soundwave, and only comparisson pics of Convoy.

    here's what we know so far:

    Convoy -
    Has tampograph autobot symbols on cab
    Silver-painted Roller
    Blue parts are metallic

    Soundwave -
    Lighter color
    Laserbeak's red is correct, opposed to the orange-red of the hasbro reissue.

    Starscream -
    Cockpit hatch color has been changed

    and there's a chance that Megatron's gun barrel has changed color, and is no longer plain silver. we have no confirmation of this.

    I'm so fucking tempted to buy Prime and Megs and leave them MISB. They're kind of like the corner stones of TF collecting and it would be fun to point at them whenever my friends come over to show them the rediculousness of my hobby. Plus I can actually afford them now, and if anything happens I can get good money for them later. Argh :cry

    ok, a few more differences:

    OP: metallic blue paint (blue on the light side but the tiny metalic bits are in the paint and reflect light

    SW: rubsign on left shoulder, supposedly lighter but I couldn't tell that from the pics

    SS: different coloured cockpit window

    Megs: different coloured barrel (more brown/tanny)

    EDIT: Nerdling, sounds like you should be making that order then.

    Convoy's blue parts are PAINTED? you sure it's just not metallic plastic? I hope it's not paint, his legs are gonna get so scraped up if it is...

    I'd love to see pictures of Megatron and Starscream if anyone has them.

    Nerdling, order them while you can. I'm sure you know fast the prices for reissues go up. these are only going to be cheap for another week or two.

    the biggest difference in Soundwave, is that they re-issued Soundwave- not a re-colored Soundblaster, like the Hasbro TRU Comm. edition. I have the Megatron (encore)and I dont think there is much of a color difference. The encore Ratchet/Ironhide set doesnt show any real difference beyond the both of them not fitting together 100% in vehicle mode. I think that has to do with them beig made in China rather than Japan. Encore Jazzz has his Autobot symbal stamped on rather than a sticker---and also doesnt have any "Martini Porsche" stickers. So far I'm very pleased with all of the "encore" re-issues. The original box art is very displayable and looks great.

    Yes, G1's stripes are stickers, and his visor is silver like the rest of his face. On Encore it's painted blue.
