I don't mind the colours on the Hasbro one. Yes, in comparison, the Takara is more in line with the G1 toy, but the US/Europe(pwease?) release is toon/comic colours and doesn't look bad. The shade of blue is different, but other than that, there's the lights on the cab now painted, and the bits on the wheel arches not, so it balances out fine for me.
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, Ramjet, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party Motobot Arcee, iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

Other than the shade of blue, there aren't many differences on Prime. I like the painted yellow lights on the top part of his cab. Looks nice for such a small touch. For $100, I'll pick him up as well.

I'll take the lighter colors, probably 'cause they're $150 less expensive.

Man, you don't know how much I want that statement to be real!
I'm thinking, maybe I should purchase Hasbro Prime (in addition to my current MP10). Once TTomy release an armor MP UMagnus, then the Hasbro Prime can serve as the inner core of the armor fighting along side with the TTomy white robot Magnus. Then my dream display will be completed :BOWDOWN: :BOWDOWN: :

I think I would actually shed tears of joy if the rumors come true about the Magnus armor. Idc if they charge $300 if it's done right and I would die happy if they released mp wheeljack

I will have this toy soon. I do not want to mess so much with my Takara ver. I'm glad Hasbro brings to the table something I could man-handle without so much care. :D

:shock: Oh boy, oh boy! What can I say about this? :roll:

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:

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'. :-B

Over the past couple years, I've discovered a deranged solution:

Buy both! #-o

I open the Takara versions and put them on display, and keep the Hasbro versions MISB. The Hasbro versions - Grimlock, Rodimus, and now Prime - come in the nice windowed boxes for easy display. The Takara versions, on the other hand, come in black, not quite-so-attractive boxes.

Stop looking at me like that... :HEADHURTS:

:/

I can probably deal with the lighter colors, but the painted-over eyes are what's kind of killing it for me. :( I really prefer the transparent jeweled look of the Takara version.

Still, I'll reserve final judgement for when I see a better gallery or in person. And it's not like I can afford the Takara version anyway...

I guess he still looks good in the SDCC gallery:

Maybe it's just the lighting in this one.

I like the Takara price better, it's more elite and killer for my wallet.

I like the Hasbro paint better, cuz I love cartoon accuracy.

I think I'll go for the hasbro one, SDCC Bruticus has made me near homeless. My gawd, ebay........ Next year I'll be @ Santiago my self!

I prefer the lighter blue in the alt mode, and the darker blue in the 'bot mode. Spike is much better. I said I wouldn't buy this, but if it makes it to the UK< it will be very difficult not to! I still think that in alt mode, the legs look way too thick.

I wonder if the lighting or the camera flash (if used) made the Hasbro version look lighter? Still, who cares. It saves you a bunch of cash. I will buy on sight when it comes to the UK. :)

Have you guys all gone crazy? G1 fan here -- Takara's Optimus Prime is more cartoon accurate. Optimus prime only has light blue eyes, the rest of his body is Dark Blue.

A couple of cheap and simple fix, squint your eyes when you look at the Hasbro version to cut down on the the light you let into your eyes OR stand the figure in a shadow. Sorted.

The lighter colours are a little garish, but they do also seem more cartoon accurate especially with the lighter eyes. The lower price also makes this hard to resist compared to Takara's version.

being that it's 150 less for the same thing, you could paint flames, and give him a Monkey ass, and I'd still buy it.
