Got this in today and absolutely love it! The bombardeiro laser anti-radar(that's a mouthful)
Color variances(To the U.S./canada X-19, don't have a UK or rubiplas to compare): Grey is lighter, has less blue tint to it. Emerald green glass(also believe there is a blue glass variant). The yellowish greenish parts are less neon and a shade or two more green.
Mold differences: Uses the lever that the UK(and rubiplas) x-19 has, much nicer than the pull action lever on the U.S./canada version.
Decal differences: White is more bright, very nice looking comandos em acao(later version) logo with red white and blue stripes. Ghost rider ommitted from decals
and the pics!
the U.S. missiles(the one I'm holding) are more neon, the glowing is not from the lighting.
the difference in the white(note the ommited ghost rider on the brazilian decal)
note the lever
the copyright info. Note the "ESTRELA S.A." about an inch below the hasbro info
Here's pne of the most popular estrela vehicles here on the U.S. market, the blindado de aslato
Color differences(To standard retail U.S./canadian vamp mk.2): Light tan body and wheels, slightly darker grey parts, the brush guard is tan instead of grey.
Mold differences: Estrela logo and copyright info on chasis, slightly different roof piece

Here's the estrela vamp. Nothing amazing, probably my least favorite of the group I got. Still a cool piece.
Color variances: Extremely slight differences in color being the green is just slightly deeper and darker, and the grey parts are also just a shade darker.
mold differences: Nothing(I'm aware of) other than the estrela copyright info and logo on the chasis. Also, IIRC there is a variant that uses the brush guard with headlights from the vamp mk.2.
Decal differences: These decals suprised me quite a bit, as I though they were paper decals, but they are vinyl decals like the U.S. version, but some have colored backgrounds instead of clear backgrounds(most have clear backgrounds though). The biggest difference is the comandos em acao logo on each side and the writing in these decals are in portugese.Also, some of the red(like the tail lights) are clearer, therefore darker against the background.
the estrela is on the right
