Very tempted to get Orion Pax, though the hollow legs look pretty bad. And since these are Takara pictures, it's unlikely they were mis-transformed.

Lookin' good!

Also, I don't really mind the hollow legs. After all, those feet have to go somewhere.

On the other hand, hollow legs means possibly more options for 3rd party armor addons :lol:

Actually I meant metallic. I tend to refer to metallic as "chrome" sometimes. I know it's not correct technically, but theyre both mirror shiny just one has color and the other doesnt.

I think they are both keepers but I wish the engineers would have done something different with Orion's :BOT: placed behind his wind shield. :VEHI:

Nope. No comics for Takara's versions.

These are fantastic! Both figures are much more vibrant than their American counterparts, which is pretty snazzy when it's done with a black figure.

The price point is a little high, but expected. I'm just not sure if I want to shell out that much for deluxes I might not end up caring about.

The colours on Megatron really make him pop. The black nose, the purple highlights, the silver and the red on his weapon. He looks amazing. He looks imposing. Shame that he's not. :roll:

I think I actually prefer the clear window of the Hasbro version of Orion, but the better paint applications and the fact he's coming with that awesome Megatron mean I'll probably take this one over Hasbro's anyway.

Nice work Takara.

We get more in-hand images of the Orion Pax half of the Takara TG-25 Orion Pax vs. Megatron set courtesy of Lost of HKTF. He is also shown compared to the Hasbro version of Orion Pax. The main differences here are the metallic paint that Takara is fond of as well as a blue tented windshield. This set is due out this month.

Wish it were Ryan's shots. I can't seem to tell the difference, until you mentioned the blue windshield. It seems to have neutered the Autobot sigil on his chest.

Interesting. They're showing how you can store the ax on the back. I think it's slotted between the two tires.

Blue windshield takes away from the Autobot logo, which is never a good thing. Also, I'm not a fan of the brighter blue and orange plastics used. Makes him look too vibrant. Even Pax needs to balance his colors, and Hasbro's version does that quite nicely.

Also, in b4 Takara fanboys, aside from lighter shades and metallic red and the windshield, there are NO VISIBLE DIFFERENCES in paint apps.
