Weapon: Null-Ray Rifle
Starscream and Kickback are all I can afford, after pre-ordering MP Soundwave and Sideswipe, as well as a truckload of HT figs. Gotta save my pennies for the MP Cassetticons too. ;)

Bruticus: better colors, although Vortex still has too much red. The individual figs have too many issues (Onslaught's horrible shoulder articulation) for me to buy the set even if I had the spare cash.

Voyager FOC Soundwave is tempting, but it would be a little redundant, seeing as I already own the WFC deluxe fig. I'll have to think on this one.

Anyone else think that the mold for Magnus was designed with him in mind and then Prime was shoe horned into it? Works so much better as Magnus than Prime I think.

I wish they would put Laserbeak and Buzzsaw in their own two pack. I need Classic versions of them but I don't want to get another Soundwave when I already have the deluxe WFC version

Well the Hasbro version can "be" Fireflight. To be honest these are Aerialbots made from Shockwave repaints so colour inconsistencies are not the worst of their accuracy problems.

Also that giant weapon that comes with Sideswipe makes me feel even more of a mug for buying Jazz.

Shiny Bruticus is niiice. However, at the cost of Takara figures, I might as well have bought the SDCC version. So I'm stuck with the Skittle-colored Hasbro retail version.

Same goes for most of these, probably, though Starscream is mighty tempting.

No brainers, already have SDCC Bruticus, and all the others will be mine except Soundwave, I'll get Soundblaster since I got deluxe wfc soundwave. But I'll get the hasbro versions, SDCC cost me enough not to buy any takara the coming months.

I mean, I don't want either version to be released as Air Raid because they're Shockwave remolds. I want an Air Raid that looks like the game model, but with them using this mold instead, it diminishes the possibility of us getting one. :-(

You know who might have made an okay remold for Air Raid? Blastoff. He has those shoulder bits that you could redo into looking like air raid, and he they both have very vaguely similar jet modes.

Though you need to bear in mind that even now, as people complain en masse about Hasbro deluxes reaching the giddy heights of 18 dollars, Takara was charging the equivalent of $25 per deluxe as far back as 6 years ago. You'd hope for a little shiny paint for that moolah.

What I don't understand is why ultra magnus uses optimus' wheels when the Hasbro version gets its own remolded wheels. I really prefer Fireflight/AirRaid in Hasbro colors, too. Way more interesting colorscheme.

Im so happy I didnt get the SDCC Bruticus from scalpers. This version makes SDCC look like a piece of s**t. It's such a shame they didnt just do Vortex right in his proper G1 grey and blue. Maybe if there is enought calling for it, it can be a future TFCC repaint. FOC creators were wrong to screw with Vortex colors. Who cares about the game anyways ??? I also jumped on both Soundwaves. But Ill be using Perfect Effect Laserbeak and Buzzaw, not those disc things.

The objective of this deco was to strive for game-accurate colors, hence Vortex's deco.

These Takara outings really look good. They are landing all of the small paint apps that the Hasbro releases desperately need. Especially on the combat icons. What a difference the painted rims make. Ultra Magnus is a huge winner as well I think. Preo-ordered two Kickback figures as well. Starscream and Sideswipe look good as well but i want to see side by side shots of them with the Hasbro versions before I commit.

The other 4 FOC Combaticons are all G1 colors, so Its quite obvious some guy who does video games (not toys) got the wrong info and they rolled with the mistake. They probally recieved a picture of energon Stormcloud instead of Vortex. Takara is known for correcting all of Hasbro's stupid mistakes. Takara even got rid of that crappy SDCC grey on Onslaught and went for a G1 blue not as bright as the Hasbro versions. So why not correct this Vortex too ??? Does vortex have to be the color of warm PISS just because some geek from activision screwed up ??? Im buying an extra Hasbro version and painting him in nobody wants to step up and get it right...

Also I dont suppose you were at Botcon in Dallas at the Hasbro pannel. When the FOC (SDCC versions) slides came on the screen, Vortex got booed while the other 4 got cheered. I heard it with my own ears. The fans have spoken on Piss Vortex.
