    For those of you have the Japanese version of Cybertron Optimus Prime aka Galaxy Force Convoy, can you tell me if the insignias on the shoulders are stickers or tampos? Only the Japanese version please, I already checked the US version.

    My copy has tampos and not stickers. Pretty sure it's the Takara release, too.

    The two easiest ways to tell if it's a Galaxy Force version is the lights are painted yellow on the cab and the wings are held in with pins. The US version, the wings are made to pop off.

    IIRC, Ladders are also painted on both sides on the GF version. The US version only has them painted on the outsides of the truck mode, not the insides.

    Also, painted Galaxy Key. But that's not necessarily attached to the figure.
