Double posts, double posts everywhere.

But I do agree, they look a lot better.

I'm not planning on getting the Takara versions, with the better pain job and higher price they are just to "collectory" for me. I like my TF toys as toys so I'm sticking with the cheaper Hasbro ones that I can actually find in stores.

The one good thin about my hobby store is that since they don't bring in Hasbro versions, I don't have to choose between either. As much as I want Shockwave, he's too tiny to make it into my neo-G1 shelf. And as a TFP figure, my collection is too incomplete to include him. I'll have to pass on most of them.

I might pick up Soundwave, just for for that little kitty from hell on his chest.

So I finally watch TFBH#4 'Rebellion' last night... WOW! :grin:

The new Optimus '2.0' looks great in robot mode, huge too! Would that make him Ultra class in toy sizing?

Question is, do I pick up the Hasbro 'green' version Voyager, the Takara Tomy 'blue' version Voyager or will there be an Ultra class version released anytime soon? :???:

Whats a collector to do? ;)

The larger-scaled Optimus was shown to be uber-size at Toy Fair. I wouldn't recommend it because it doesn't have the jetpack he now uses, and because of his size, he would be horribly out of scale with the Ultra Magnus Voyager and the Deluxes.

Image

The American release of the Voyager (which has the green sword/windows) is alright. I would recommend it only if you can't afford to import the Takara version.

The Takara version is the winner here. The windows aren't that Jolly-Rancher green, the usual outstanding deco Takara is known for, the usual shebang. I would recommend the Takara version for maximum accuracy.

Shockwave would like to apologize.

Image

As it turns out, the more bluish Shockwave shown in the previous pics was a production sample, rather than the final.

Image

This new, more purple version shown in these new pics is what the final will actually look like.

The blue one on the left is the sample we saw before, and the purple on the right is the final.

Image

As a bonus, here's the Hasbro one (left) compared to the final Takara one (right).

Image



Though, one thing that was cool about the previous pics was that blue Shockwave was in the famous "ARE ALL DEAD" pose:

That is a seriously sexy purple.

I wish they'd show it with the beast armour on though. It looks even better in grey than it did in orange.

I don't think he looks blue at all in that illustration but hey what the hell do I know. :P I think the Go Shockwave looks mind blowing over the Hasbro version. So if you want the ultimate you gotta pay the ultimate price...'nuff said! :VEHI:

All those Shockwave figures look nice to me. If I can't find one domestically by the time Botcon rolls around though, Takara gets my money. I've been a little more active in my hunt in the last couple weeks. No luck yet.

The new one is nice and shiny, but the blue paint ruins the look drastically.
Hasbro's version still looks better.
