Which G1 Reissue Starscream?

I will be opening a G1 Reissue Starscream for display.

My display is working towards MPs and their G1 counterparts in close proximity.

What are the differences between the 2002 Commemorative Reissue and the recent 2017 Walmart Reissue?

Does one make for a better display than the other?

Is there a significant difference in value between the two?

Which should I open?

If it is relevant, note that I also have the (2002) commemorative Skywarp and Thundercracker which will be opened... or will be up for debate if they are also re-issued before I open them.

You should open the 2002 version. The other is really close to the original, and I find the packaging is nicer.

I believe that they all come with the long missiles so not much difference? I would go all commemorative for uniformity.

On a side note, I did the same thing with my display (g1 plus mp) if you want to have an idea what it ends up looking like.

The new 1 comes with megatron gun mode so starscream can hold it
Other wise not different at all.

They are reissuing skywarp and thundercracker but no need to buy if you already have a set.
To each their own.

My understanding is that Astrotrain and Blaster are being reissued instead of those two since they won the fan votes.

Takara Encore because the missiles aren't shiz.

UNpopular opinion: neither. The G1 toy was terrible. I have one. I know.

Display something awesome instead.
