    Default 'Target' Vault hardcover vs USA version

    Hi everyone, while I am on holiday in Australia, I thought I would see if i can pick up the Australian version of The Valut book as sold in Target. However I have read that there maybe some differences between this version and the one sold on Amazon in the USA. Can anyone let me know those differences so I can make an informed decision on getting the 'best' version. Cheers

    As far as I'm aware it's just the cover.

    The US version has a solid blue slipcase with a drawing of G1 Optimus Prime on the front beside the title and G1 Megatron on the back beside a blurb. When you slide the book out the cover has no text but three Prime pictures (Powermaster box art, anime Primal, drawn Movie) an the back has three Megatrons (G1, anime BW, cgi ROTF).

    The AUS version has a clear slipcase and different cover/backcover.

    Oh and since it's not sealed check no kids haven't taken the pull out items. I've seen them lying around the book section.

    G1 catalogue pg 15
    Tech specs and decoder pg 21
    Poster pg 81
    Animation cel pg 89
    Movie poster pg 101
    Model sheet pg 105
    Movie ticket pg 141

    Cheers for the details. Haven't yet seen one yet though so I'm not sure yet on the version that will get my money.
