Well, the gimmick is the same: rub-signs. It's the characters featured that differ. Bumblebee appeared in both lines, but in Reveal the Shield he has a Movie-inspired deco.
For the sake of overall convenience, we like to call any figure that's part of Classics, Universe 2008, Generations and Reveal the Shield either Classics or Generations, as they all feature updated G1 character designs.
That's a big help, thank you.
There aren't any size differences though are there? It took me a while to figure out that the Cyberverse ones are ones I can hang on my rear view mirror. lol
The RTS line consists (if I remember correctly) of 8 deluxes, which are the same size as Classics deluxes:Optimus Prime (an original mold based on the G2 Optimus toy, but using G1 Autobot logos), Bumblebee (a repaint of Classics Bumblebee in movie colors), Perceptor (an original mold loosely based on the IDW depiction of the character) Wreck Gar (a new mold, later repainted into other Junkions) Special Ops Jazz (an original mold based on G1 Jazz), Turbo Tracks (an original mold based on G1 Tracks) Fallback (a repaint of movieverse Brawl in G1 Outback colors) and the aforementioned Mindset.
There are also 4 Voyagers: Solar Storm Grappel (sic) (a retool of Universe Inferno in G1 Grapple colors), Strafe ( a repaint of movieverse Mindwipe in G1 Strafe colors), Deep Dive (a repaint of movieverse Seaspray as an original character) and Lugnut (an original mold based on Animated Lugnut)
There was also a 2-pack called Battle In Space which included repaints of Universe Cyclonus and Classic Hot Rod in more cartoon accurate and more garish colors respectively, as well as a diecast matrix and a comic.
