I have the takara version. He is fantastic. I display him in bot mode. He looks very intimidating on the shelf.

I wouldn't bother with the Takara version, unless they're the same price and you have a preference for the packaging & waiter accessories. Otherwise the Hasbro one is nearly the same and comes with the crown accessory which the regular Takara edition did not. If you can get the Hasbro one for cheaper, I say go for it!

Well, given I have a maido san fetish....go for the Takara version :lol:

My Transformers purchasing habits
1. Not hung up or hate scale. MP, Legend, Voyager I'll take 'em all.
2. Price is indeed a big factor but if its a need to own one even if I have to eat "Scooby Snacks " for a month then so be it.
3. I tilt towards Tomy products over Hasbro because it's got lots'a bling (Legends Jetfire being the exception)

I've got the Takara version in signiture picture below. He's usually decorating the bar, along with Binaltech Jazz w/ Martini reprolabels. Haven't had any problems with mine. The version to go with depends on how you will display him the most. I display in dino mode mostly. I did get my hands on the Hasbro crown though! :KREMZEEK: :DANCE: :KREMZEEK: Either version is awesome. I would go with the one whose accessories fit you best.

the light is in the hand. his right hand. there might be a little plastic tab you have to pull out to activate it.
assembling a Neo-G1/TF:TM cast. Please PM if you have (or know of) the following at a reasonable price: Classics or Henkei Astrotrain, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
