There has always only been one GTV Co-Star model that came in 2 boxes. The plain box is labeled as the VAP-430 model and it's intended for internet sales. The other box is the colorful box that is labeled as the Isg-b03 model - and it's intended for retail stores. Same hardware different boxes. IMO the Co-Star is dead and there will never be a new model. The current inventory is being cleared out. The differences you notice could be due to new firmware updates.
