As has been said already, In the Case of the Prime Line, Takara has less paint apps, in fact almost no paint. All the details are picked out using stickers instead.
As for the minicon ports, yes Takara usually adds ports to existing figures to accommodate their Arms Microns.
Also of note, is that for the most part, the Takara figures have no weapons aside from their Arms Microns. The weapons the Hasbro figures include, are not included in the Takara versions.
