Platinum Edition Reissue Generation 1 Trypticon Has Some Small Differences From The Original

User Kelvin Chan of the Talk Transformers Facebook Group has posted a photo showing off the major differences between G1 Trypticon and the Platinum Edition reissue. One of the differences is shared with the previous reissue, Beast Wars Second Gigastorm, while the other is new. Click through for details!
The original post from Kelvin Chan:

I haven't been actively looking to spot differences between G1 and reissue Trypticon, but here are a few which immediately stood out to me.
* G1 Trypticon's eyes are gold chrome (vacuum metallised), reissue's are metallic gold stickers
* G1 Trypticon's lower ramp has two small 'bumps,' these are absent on the reissue
* Reissue Trypticon has various legal blurbs and logos tampographed on the toy which are absent on the G1 figure


I don't own Gigastorm, so I don't know how many of these differences are present on that toy.


The reply from Tony Klepack:

Gigastorm:
- Appears to have metallic gold sticker eyes.
- Has at least one legal blurb on the tail section (the black writing in the pic but mine's grey instead. It's molded onto the toy).
- I don't think the bumps are on it (there's a place where the ramp snaps into--and it was very tight on mine--but no upper visible part).
