I agree those colors are sick!! =P~ I want that Shockwave in my collection for sure :BOWDOWN: Takara even made Prime look good...better than the Hasblo Crayola color schemes we get. I better preorder a Shockwave soon...time to break open the piggy bank :ic$:

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.

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.

*Cue the fanrage as (almost) all those who purchased BH OP now regret doing so*

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.

Soundwave and Shockwave are GORGEOUS! I must have them both!

Damn it, and I was this close to swearing off buying Takara figures...

Definitely getting Prime. I'm not a huge fan of the green Synth En Hasbro version.

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.

:BOOM: IGNORE ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
