    These just arrived at Tijuana along what appears a red feet IGA Grapple. Both junkers, but curious markings

    I wanna say Ironhide belongs to the European classics, with gold boxes, but Hook?

    Maybe Chinese reissues from 1989?

    I have a couple Constructicons like that. The shade of green is also slightly different than the original 85 release. I got them from a former Hasbro employee, but everything I could find says they were the Chinese reissues that the UK got.

    Makes sense, seems all the chinese reissues were made from the classics reissues molds

    Thanks for the info!

    We got Mexican reissues of G1 Optimus, Prowl, Hound, Topspin, Twintwist, Ratchet and the Constructicons in Ireland back in 89.
