I totally agree. If it wasn't such an awful mold, I'd buy this one too.

The only thing I don't like about the mold is the sculpting of his head. :BOOM: The rest looked pretty nice, down to the TRON tires.

Why can't you be in America with us to get better toys from you than Hasbro, Takara? If you design toys like the ones shown, could you at least sell them at hard to find places?

Yep, definitely sticking with my preorder. Takara wins...again.

I'm getting to the point where I'm considering skipping all Hasbro releases entirely. With Takara, I always have to wait longer, but they're always so much better. Sure, it means that I have to pull off some ugly Arms Micron ports from their AM figures using pliers, but it works and they end up looking soooo much better (even with stickers) than the stuff that Hasbro has given us.

Hasbro focuses on price, Takara focuses on accuracy. For me as a collector, that makes Takara the clear choice, especially now that I'm not collecting as many lines as I used to (most of my catching up on lines I missed in the past is done now).

HOLY CRAP!!! :BOOM:

They don't actually look half bad. Well done, Takara. :APPLAUSE:

Still a 'no' mind you.

Wow, these look so much better than the hasbro versions and I like both them especially the jazz.How he looks is much more accuate to the game version.
I like the Optimus too and is again better than the Hasbro version.
I am more willing to spend on the Takara versions than the Hasbro versions because they look better and are nicer to look at.Well done Takara :APPLAUSE:!!
