I could help...but unfortunately I haven't got their boxes. Didn't help that I was four of five by the time I got them.

If it's anything about the actual figures you want, I can help. I've got lots of them.

Combiner teams and Throttlebots were carded.

Chase - 5892/5160.02 asst.
Breakdown - 5846 02/5670 asst.
Air Raid - 584 (rest is torn on the card I have)

Okay, something has changed:

I've noted that all the numbers are identical to the original 1984/85/86 releases, with the only difference being the assortment numbers.

Now, the problem is Spanish Wheeljack. He has the "Classic Heroes" assortment number, but a different product number than the 1984 version.
The regular European Classic Wheeljack has the 1984 product number and the "Classic Heroes" assortment number, as expected.

The other two "Classic" releases whose product numbers differ from their 80s counterparts are Optimus Prime, who has just been confirmed to me as being a Spanish release, and Onslaught, whose "Classic" instructions feature the 1986 product code/Classic assortment numbers, while the unexpected number seems to originate from someone who did indeed own a bunch of Spanish toys.

Guess I need the Spanish numbers, then.

The mystery continues! Yay.

Spanish boxed/carded Jazz, Sandstorm, Swindle, Brawl, Vortex, Blast Off and Silverbolt ALL have their original 1984/86 product code numbers plus the respective "Classics" assortment number, just like the regular European releases should have.

Only exception so far is Spanish Hot Spot: 5159/5223. HUH? Product code is identical to Spanish Onslaught (5159/5222), while the assortment is different?!?

Something really weird is going on here...
