Having seen comparison images
of both the Hasbro and Takara, I can see good things about both figures, as well as faults in each.
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'??

without further remolding or making a new figure, then this would have been an instant win.
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.
