G1 commemorative prime reissue vs 25th anniversary. Differences?

Postby Breakdown 2099 » Tue Nov 20, 2012 4:58 am

Any difference from the 25th anniversary prime that was released with the washed down paint scheme, comic and DVD? If so, what are they?
Thanks in advance

No way to know until its released. Judging by the pics though I'd say the only major difference is that roller is silver for this release, and was blue for the 25th version.

Also the boxes are clearly different, as this one appears to use the G1 style box, rather than the nightmare that was 25th's packaging.

Other than that they seem the same. The coo emorative release appears to be using the non-bloated versions of the accessories.

The differences lay mainly in the shades of colors used, with the commemorative edition being closer to the G1 original (aside from shortened smokestacks and longer missiles). A key difference lies in the rifle. The first reissue had the one with the thick barrel, but the 25th anniversary has the slender version instead.

Weapon: Acid Spray Gun
I have the 25th Anniversary and felt the need for a proper red prime. Got the commemorative whose cab red makes the 25th look pinkish/orange.....much better. The blue legs are similar to the difference in the new Hasbro & Takara MP releases with Hasbro being bright blue and Takara being an awesome dark blue/purpley. Was dissapointed to find the trailer to be the same, which I find to bee way to bright grey. I no longer have my original G1 trailer, can anyome confirm that the original trailer was a much darker grey than these two newer releases?
Also, I wonder how the Chronicles G1 Prime compares to these. Looks like it doesnt have the original trailer, but does have the unshortened smokestacks?
