    I was wondering if there are any differences between Superlink Shockfleet (SD-15) and the Hasbro version.

    The Japanese version had an extra paint app on the shoulders, but that is it.

    I think people are getting confused? SL Shockfleet is not a repaint of Armada Tidal Wave... (who doesn't have batteries anyway?) Or ahev I got that wrong and this mould does have batteries? Anyway TFW's own resources pages have entries on Shockfleet and Mirage, his Hasbro equivalent.

    Mirage - Transformers Toys - TFW2005

    Hasbro Mirage...

    I *think* the clear plastic was different. I believe the US one was more greenish, where as the Japanese one was clear/gray.

    Yeah sure it could have been better but seeing how things are as of today, the Transformers anime back then were much better than the ones of now. I mean, for the main characters/Transformers (ex: Adventure Bumblebee) they dont combine w/ anyone whiles the Convoys(ex: Fire Convoy) back then did.
