Here's a helpful comaprison pic.

From left to right: Original BW Neo Archadis, BW Telemocha Series Archadis, Dinobots Airraptor

Also, the first one has a Predacon spark crystal, while the latter two have Dinobot spark crystals (this was an accident on Telemocha Archadis).

Of the three, Airraptor is the most yellow and has a darker shade of blue.

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

I'm still kicking myself for what happened at BotCon 2011. There was a guy who had Telemocha Archadis and Waspeeter, and whne I saw them, I gladly bought Waspeeter from him. And when he saw my enthusiasm over it, he offered to throw in Archadis for a discouted price to go with Waspeeter, but I min my sheer stupidity and ignorance kindly declined his offer due to my lack of interest in the character.

It wasn't until after the convention I realized my dimwitted mistake when I remembered that each Telemocha Series figure also came with a special DVD that had both an episode of the Japanese Beast Wars dub and a chapter in the Beast Wars Diorama Story. Because I chose to turn down the chance to get that Archadis, I also ended up turning down the chance the DVD that came with him. IDIOT!!! :x :x :x

I tried looking for one again this year, but only found one other Telemocha Series figure, Black Widow. I got her, but still no Archadis.

Though, I also want the original figure too since it's the show-accurate version.
