Note the differences in the stickers. Not all have been changed, but many have. The biggest changes are the yellow vs. gold plastic and all the orange and red plastic has a slightly metallic sheen to it as opposed to the G1 whose colors are lighter with more of a matte finish. The new one has a new sticker sheet with red eye stickers for all animals and robots. Accept for the Predaking head which is still black without the stickers, the eyes were painted gold. The swords are more gold while the original is more bronze.
