My friend "M" has made the comment to me a few times that he believes G2 figures will really be increasing in price. They are currently so downplayed by many people but they're still essentially G1 figures with some minor retooling. They already are pretty expensive (ever try to buy a G2 dinbot, especially the silver ones)?
Though I don't care for all of the figures from this line, but the ones I do like I think are great.

If you're familiar at all with the original, you'll see than it compares very closely, as most of the changes are mainly sticker-based.
- G1 & G2 : Painted die-cast metal hood and rear end (excluding spoiler and rear window)
- G1 : Two tone blue with red stripe down centre of hood, roof and rear fenders; G2 : Musical note on hood, roof and door panels, Jazz's name and "Autobot" on rear fenders and spoiler
- G1 : Car #4; G2 : Car #1
- G1: Front grill criss-crossed sticker pattern; G2: vertical grill sticker
- G1: Autobot rub insignia on hood; G2: Autobot sticker on hood
He has no axels, so his wheels never really point in exactly the same direction, thus he doesn't go far when pushed.
He has chromed silver feet, with a black head (silver face though thats heard to see from this shot), shoulders, hands and lower legs.

It might be "the new generation" but I'm still seeing the same figures.....so far anyway. They actually do go on and introduce new figures but it's nice to see that they have kept some of the originals, mainly due to already having the molds for them.
For me personally, I still prefer the original G1 stickers and should canon, but obviously if they were doing a reissue and needed to make changes those would be the two easiest things to revamp.
