Meaning? That the design was altered?
See, that's where the difference between retool and separate mold enters a grey area. SL Galvatron could very well be downsized from Energon Megatron from the design sketches on, using the same design cues but executing them in two different sizes.
Starscream is a bit harder to properly place, as the differences between the Voyager and the Supreme are quite numerous. It is possible that TakaraTomy went ahead with an earlier version of the design, and that Hasbro refined it for the Supreme.
