Exactly. I'm not all that impressed with him. There's an awful lot of kibble on him. He's one hell of a cheatformer and shellformer. You mean to tell me they couldn't find a way to collapse that hood into his chest? Really?
I admit that the AM Smokescreen isn't perfect, but with a few mods, I think he'd look better and more accurate than this one. And the paints on the US Smokey? Bland. Just...bland. The stickers (I do hate them) really pop on the Japanese version. (Their only saving grace.)
I don't know. I feel like people got screwed all around when it came to Smokescreen. TakaraTomy apparently didn't get this mold for their use, at least right now, and the US version has a LOT of kibble on it. A lot.
I don't know what to think or do here. I'll probably buy it and do some parts swapping, such as the heads, but once I have it in hand and can do a complete comparison, I'll make a final decision for sure.
As of right now, I'm less than impressed. I'm actually glad I paid for the import.
