I'm no Bumblebee-ologist but I'm pretty sure there's no changes. Aside from J-exclusive figures and, IIRC Breakaway, the Takara movie line has been unaltered.

Isn't the silver plastic on Ironhide different?

There is one significant difference: BB Optimus Prime has the face-ripping hooks instead of the blades of the US version. Before anyone retorts that's the Leader Class version, look closer, it's the Voyager.

At this point all the Optimi have blurred into one big blob for me.

That's why I don't really like BB Prime, it's too similar to the Leader Class version, hooks aside.

Insecticon and Ironhide are remarkably different. I might pick up both.

Insecticon's colours look pretty cool. I think I'll pick him up.

I'm not even going to tackle these Takara versions, mainly because the differences from their Hasbro counterparts don't seem to be too vibrant, and even if they are, I'm too used to their glaring Animated metallics.
