- Weapon: Null-Ray Rifle
Ok, to preface - I'm comparing a "Double Shattered Glass" KO (DSG)to the version posted here as I do not have the original KO of SG Prime:
The purple seems to be a little more vibrant in the new pictures, as well as the gold and green paint apps (unless this is the display version, much like the photoshop'ed images Hasbro uses). The murky orange/brown on the windshields are darker than DSG.
The little black piece outlined in the first image is purple on the DSG, and I'm not sure if this is really significant or not.
Smokestacks are painted silver here, DSG has straight black smokestacks/gun.
Looks like the new pictures show a better detailed head compared to DSG. Again, the gold paint seems to pop better. DSG's facemask seems to round at the top, this one is more pointed.
Autobot logos on the shoulder are beter pronounced as opposed to DSG's bad tampographs.
Some of the arm pieces on DSG are actually clear/translucent plastic, so if the new KO is a solid color than the plastic might be a bit better quality.
Takara/Hasbro copyrights are retained on this release, on DSG they were removed.
So, if this is a new release, I welcome the idea that the paints look better. I also hope that the gun/smokestack mold was tweaked, because DSG's feels very cheap and doesn't even fit properly. I'm not sure what else could've been done to improve the mold, but it's not like we're getting any further details here. Maybe this is more of a "buyer beware" because it looks more like the official SG release?
