I would like to know if it is true that they have a diferent face sculpt or something.
They're newer and they're in different boxes.
So, nothing else, huh?
They tweaked the colors slightly. Little bit lighter on Soundwave's blue, that sort of thing.
on optimus, his autobot sticker is painted instead of a sticker i believe.
silver roller, don't forget optimus now comes with the silver roller!
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:
Has tampograph autobot symbols on cab
Blue parts are metallic
Laserbeak's red is correct, opposed to the orange-red of the hasbro reissue.
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
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.
why gravedig a thread over a year old? by now people have these already and know the difference...
ok now the only difference between encore reissue jazz and g1 origional jazz is the porsche stickers and autobot logo?
Plus Encore Jazz has painted stripes and a painted visor on his face.
while G1 is stickers?
Yes, G1's stripes are stickers, and his visor is silver like the rest of his face. On Encore it's painted blue.
sweet thx, saw him on sale, and really thinking bout getting him, just need money
