Would Euro tail end G1 exclusives only contain UK releases? As some of the later toys had name variants in different countries... and then you'd have to filter in Italian toys which had different names from the get-go. Europe is a tricky field. :\

This is an accurate list on European toys, but it's missing anything between MB and Euro exclusives.

Regarding Classics, don't believe anyone telling you about variants in the same markets with "Classic" vs. no "Classic" monikers. UK (English) and bilingual French/Dutch packaging had the name "Classic", Spanish and Italian packaging had not. Spanish Onslaught was the only non-Italian Classic with an different name from the UK/F/NL version ("Oslat"). Name variants other than Italy started around the time of the Turbomasters etc.

"Was it G2" is pretty easy. Or wait, it's not.

European non-G2 toys released in 1993 were re-released in 1994, this time in G2 packaging. Clench and Pyro were renamed into Colossus and Spark, everyone else retained their names (it was not a "UK vs. rest of Europe" name change for the Obliterators, it was a "pre-G2 vs., G2 packaging" change).

Seriously, believe Fred's list.

Or use my incomplete TF Wiki list as a template.
