Yep, and I think that's because in Japan they're still really into model kits and such. That's why they have the Arms Microns (and we don't) and they have stickers. With such small/cheapy looking toys, it makes sense to get the bang for your buck by getting a model kit to build instead of a malnourished Deluxe
Of course, then there's their Generations offerings. I thought for certain that with the way things have been going, Takara might at best do a few minor paint mods to the FoC figures. I was way wrong. They put tons of paint onto the ones I've seen so far. They really do look like collectors' items for what they are.
Now, as for MP-10, I have the Takara version, I don't have the Hasbro version, but I've seen picture comparisons and video comparisons aplenty and aside from some of the colors (and the yellow paint on the lights on the top of the cab), I see no real difference. My Takara version has a leg panel on the front that doesn't like to stay in place unless I get it just right, and it usually takes several tries. It's a common issue, not one limited to the Hasbro release. Honestly, I'm shocked that Hasbro was able to release it as complete as it was and for the price that they did. MP-10 is one of the few imports in a really long time that I think Hasbro got right. Hopefully we'll see more like this in the future.
