Prime is definitely an improvement, and how he should have been done in the first place, but I don't like the figure enough to pay import prices.

Oh well, I'll stick with the green I guess.
For Sale:

Kinda Pisses me off that Prime Get Blue over our Green. I't one thing for Takara versions to have more paint apps, but it's something Completely Different to have different Plastic colors....

Nothing new here... Almost all the plastic are differently coloured. Look at starscream, bulkhead, and even wheeljack has a different vibe to him.

Meh. I like BH OP with green windows and a green sword. I'm not a slave to G1 designs or cartoon accuracy, and I like that the green differentiates him from other OPs.

All-green Bulkhead looks boring. I like the Roadbuster-homage paint job we got from Hasbro.

Should've saw this coming. Well, I suppose many of you did. :lol: Oh well, if I end up finding a Takara version at a reasonable price (doubtful), I'll get it. Until then, I can settle for green.

Indeed. Optimus Looks better w/ the blue, so he'll stand alongside the Hasbro one I already have (and no, I don't regret it).

Predaking and Bumblebee seem unchanged, so the US figures are fine.

Bulkhead, Jackie, Starscream, Soundwave and Shockwave look bland. Sorry Takara, I'll stick to Hasbro for these.

It would have been funny if they mirrored the Hasbro versions. Keep the "proper" decos for Soundwave, Starscream and Bulkhead and make the rest some wheird colors.

Shockwave in a shocking blast yellow, Optimus in different toxic tron style greens, Predaking in icy/cryo tech type blues, Bumblebee in a bug bitingly white and Wheeljack in slicing blue or a maligned and boring style.

I don't know, I kinda dig the marbleized "scorched" look of Hasbro BH line. I havnt bought Optimus yet, but I cant really justify spending $60 on an import right now, so ill probably just get the Hasbro version of him

I don't get the love for Shockwave vs the Hasbro version. They look the same, aside from the rubber monster bits, and are people really wanting to display it with those attached?
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.

I wonder. The grey version of ripclaw we saw on a box, could that be the takara version of her? if so, what will the other predacons look like? i need that prime, Ripclaw (if its different colors), and soundwave. that soundwave is bitchin.

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."

Funny how changing the clear plastic on BH voyager Optomus from green to blue makes such a massive difference!
