    Question about the G1 Powerdasher Jet type (Crona, I believe?)

    I've got one that's broken and I want to replace it. The body is BLACK (with silver arms and a red head and legs). But all the ones I'm seeing for sale right now have a BLUE body(still with silver arms and a red head and legs).

    So my question is... Which one was the version Hasbro was selling the US as a mail away, and which one was from Japan? Or is that even the difference? WHAT IS the difference, I guess?

    Hasbro mail-away was black. Diaclone was blue. Not sure if KOs exist...

    Does yours have a spot for a Diaclone driver to sit? In addition to the color change, the jet Powerdasher's seat was remolded by Hasbro so it was not possible for a driver to sit there.

    Pretty sure mine's the Hasbro Mail-in. I just wanted to make sure that's what I would be replacing it with. I mean... Diaclone is cool and all, it's just not what I'm looking for ATM. Thanks for the info, guys! :)  20170129_141405003.jpg
