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.
