I'm sure there will be a Takara version of Skids at some point. They're probably winding down Generations to do Age of Extinction.

NP!

My reasoning for this is that there are no Generations figures scheduled for release from Takara Tomy after March 2014. I'm assuming they're gearing up for Generations round 2 or whatever the next line is that follows the Classics/Generations/Henkei motif.

Looks like a toy I might buy just to do some repainting on.
It's show-accurate, at least:

EXACTLY.

i don't see how someone, who has never even seen the show, could call takara's less accurate.. that baffles me.

oh well.. i think takara's is pretty awesome.. and i might get it.. especially since it's a pretty nice mold.

Here's a case where not even Takara could make me like the repaint version more than the original. So far, the pictures I've seen of 'Screamers mold done up as Jhiaxus look better to me than Starscream himself. I absolutely despise the Hasbro version of him and the Takara version is just as abhorrent. I was excited about the figures release until I saw the paint scheme. I love the mold but the paint job just blows. I don't care if it matches the cartoon version, I personally find it just hideous on this toy and refuse to buy it for just this reason.

That mini-con (Ammonite) team however... I've had the U.S. release in my hot little hands and loved how it looked and Takara has made it look just that much more enticing. Come pay-day, now that I've tracked down a store in my area that's carrying them, I plan on adding these guys (the Hasbro version) to my collection. I would say it's well worth it to those of you who are waiting to get the Takara version. Snag it if at all possible.

everyones entitled to their own opinions. but yours is wrong.

how could you hate his show accurate, perfectly executed paint job? what exactly are you looking for? (besides an inaccurate orange jhaixus obviously).

Yeah if the colors he's suppose to be in aren't good enough, then what is? A full colored body in prototype gray?
