I wonder if the difference with the tailfin/chest stickers is if it's the Hasbro version versus the Takara Book Collection version. The one in my gallery is the Takara version. The one in Optibotimus' video is the Hasbro version. Does anyone have a Hasbro version with the tailfin stickers? I haven't opened my Hasbro version yet so I can't say one way or another yet.


Mine is the Hasbro version. It wouldn't surprise me to learn that Hasbro omitted those stickers.

Weapon: Null-Ray Rifle
I also have the Hasbro reissue (just got it as a late Christmas gift, so I'm thinking it's the one that was just "released" in the past year with Ultra Magnus in Asia; the box also have a 2012 copyright on it). The sticker set does omit the tail fin stickers. Oddly enough, the instruction set shows a different set of stickers in the 2nd panel, but in the panel for just sticker instructions there are no placement pointers to the fins. Guess it's just a running change.

I got mine from BBTS in December 2012 when they restocked them, and they were listed as "Commemorative Astrotrain (New Version)" - so you might be right.
