These figures, show or not, would make awesome display pieces!

Now give us a highly detailed Ultra Magnus, less neon Predacons, and a show-accurate Smokescreen! And watch out for that yellow light-piping! It needs to be blue!!!!

I could never understand what justifies paying a lot more money for a figure that costs half, or less than half, here in the US all for slightly different colors, or even a better color scheme. What happened to saving money? I for one shall take a $20 green sword and window Prime any day. And what's so great about that Shockwave? The only difference I see is the color of the beast armor that I thought we didn't care about.

sometimes I can definitely see the difference, and the reason for paying more for something that's nicer in general, or more accurate to a show or something. Most of the time I don't see enough improvement for me to pay the extra, and sometimes the Hasbro versions are the ones I like better.
Sometimes there is quite a huge difference between US and Japanese releases. Take TFPrime Breakdown for example.
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, Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Blurr, or 3rd Party iGear Ratchet and Ironhide.
Also looking for Universe Repugnus and Overbite, Frostbite and Longhorn and any Webdiver toys.

And in that case, it's less "different deco" than it is "Hasbro didn't release it for some reason." :lol:

Hasbro has too many colors, Takara not enough.

Starscream is bizarrely similar to Megatron now.

Motto: ""It's all part of the plan...more or less.""
Weapon: Star Saber Sword
Hmmmmm....

OK, first things first...Where the heck are the "combiner" bots that were listed, talked about etc??? I was psyched to see what was up with those...Only Tomy Takara import I've ever ordered was Scourge/Nemesis Prime YEARS ago. Nothing has ever stood out so much I wanted to pay more than Hasbro retail...

Second... I am not a fan of the Crayola-formers (wish the Preds had WAY LESS colors for sure) but these look REALLY BLAND... Only one that benefits is Shockwave. Optimus looks cool with the blue, BUT since it's looking like it isn't Optimus anyways I am good with Hasbro's green.

When it's all said and done... I am not importing anything cuz I have a kid to feed and bills to pay, BUT I would really like to see the afore mentioned combiner we were told about.

Blue windows! YAY! Could've sworn we read somewhere a month or so back that Optimus would have a blue sword but keep the green windows. Guess it was wrong. Thank god! :APPLAUSE:

Starscream is such an improvement over the Hasbro version. I'd love a small squadron of those.

I'm holding out for decent pictures of Shockwave, Smokescreen, and will wait to see what they do with the Predacons.

Well, it looks like all my money will be going to Takara this time around. Balance has been restored. Huzzah. Shame really. I enjoyed being able to buy my Transformers figures from local retailers again.

I'm sorry, but red and green don't go together as well has red and Blue. Maybe if we complain enought, we'll get s special edition prime with blue plastic.

Not sure if this has come up before but it seems that Predaking's Japanese name is Dragotron.

[quote="SKYWARPED_128"]That pic of ROTF Megatron in the bottom right of the last pic, is that a statue or a DMK model kit? If it's the latter, I'd love to get one. The words are too small to make out more than "Real Master Line," "Transformers: Revenge" and the price, "9000 yen."[quote]

I think it says "Museum Masterline Transformers Revenge Megatron Polystone (?) Statue". It also looks like 188,000 yen. Ouch.

Just about every one of these look way better to me than Hasbro's version. If Hasbro would have gotten the same color schemes, i would have tried to get them all....

188,000 yen?! Mother Futcher... :shock:

Why Takara? Why didn't you just go with making a much cheaper DMK kit? Would have bought it in a heartbeat. :BANG_HEAD:
