    between the two starscream g1 reissue? one is takara #22 the other is encore. im not talking about the tfc book collection.

    i notice the canopy looks yellow or orange on the encore and more greyish without any color on the #22. any other differences?

    im looking to buy the encore i think. i want it to match my skywarp and thundercracker encores i have.

    if any one has one available unopened let me know.

    I believe the #22 is more accurate to G1.

    Tampograph
    The Decepticon insignias are applied in the same fashion as the TFC version; i.e., printed on the wings; nosecone.

    Another difference on the Encore version is in the launchers. Annoyingly, they are missing an inner ring that keeps the missiles/null rays centered in the launcher. Without this piece the armaments are crooked when inserted. Not too crazy, but it is noticeable. I'd recommend D-22 over the Encore version, personally. If you are a nut like me, though, then you will buy all 3 versions ;)

    tampograph is basically stencil painting, so yes they're painted
