Oh boy, oh boy! What can I say about this?
Well, comparing the two...
I like the shade of red of the Hasbro version, but the shade of blue of the Takara version.
I like the bright optics of the Hasbro version, but the lemon shade of yellow of the Takara version.
I like the shiny trailer of the Hasbro version, but the silver Roller of the Takara version.
I like the better-painted Spike of the Hasbro version, but the dimmer shade of gray of the Takara version.
But, the deciding factor:

I prefer the price of the Hasbro version.
Yeah, I'll have ill choice but to get the Hasbro version.
Though, the differing shades of blue reminds me of the light blue variant of G1 Optimus Prime from back in the 80's.
But, then again, these pictures seem kinda low quality. What we need is a full blown Seibertron.com Toy Gallery to give a toy comparison between these two the proper justice they deserve. I'm sure there's one coming down the line, but just sayin'.
