Yuppers. I thought this was going to be far more expensive. Not sure it's worth the new head, but I bit at $60 (If I'm willing to pay this much for new not-insecticons...) I suppose I can now sell the one Armada MISB I still have...

Not available again. Wow. It's a long way to go until my payday. If I can't get one from Amazon, I don't think I will try to find it elsewhere. The secondary prices will be ridiculous.

The Hasbro one has the more correct color choices, while the Takara one has the more correct color layout.

Though, the Takara one has slightly more correct use of its colors than the Hasbro one.

THAT, and the more 'flat' (as described by another) colors used sealed the deal with the Takara one for me long ago. Goes perfectly with the ol'collection.

And, seriously, was someone referring to the the correct orange-toothed-center as a 'racing stripe'?? :roll:

That'll be the next repainted version...

Too true. Given there's a head variant, there will be at LEAST two more repaints. That's how HasTak rolls.

"Racing stripe" or not, it's still more correct than the orange "zigzag" going down the chest on Hasbro's Unicron.

But both versions need to use more SUBTLETY to their color schemes if they want these to be as show-accurate as possible. The G1 animation models were not fancy-shmancy with so many itty-bitty details splattered onto their bodies. They had BASIC color schemes and those worked well for them. All these tiny bits of added red and silver paint are completely unnecessary, as they take away from the show-accurate nature of these color schemes.

That being said, the little silver paint additions are much more welcome than the red (or any other colour) ones, as it atleast keeps with the other places where silver is used well.

Looks like it's available again for pre-order...

*never mind...it disappeared again. But check back often cuz it'll probably show up eventually. Or just sit back and wait till it's in stock again in good numbers.

Even funnier that Unicron is boxed in a pose that suggests that once kranix is glanced upon, you will get punched in the arm and called gay.

Yeah, I thought that was pretty funny. It reminds me of a series of Unicron videos I made that I cannot post on this site without getting in massive trouble.
