Japanese toy blogger Alfes 2010 has posted a gallery of Takara Tomy's recently released Transformers Go! G06 Hunter Smokescreen. The figure features a more show accurate deco, but does not come with his Hasbro counterpart's Beast Hunters armor. We've mirrored some of the images below, the full gallery can be found by clicking here.

Yeah, show-accuracy... but he has since changed his colors.

Yeah, didn't he adopt a G2 Sideswipe deco like the Legends class/Cyberverse figure or whatever? If so, I'd much prefer this one (which is already on preorder from BBTS).

I still am excited for him and for Ratchet. But is it me or are there some flaws in his paint specifically the stripe on his hood? I really hope this was just an unlucky pick and not to be expected with every single one. :VEHI:

Chances are Beast Hunters won't be aired in Japan, so the Japanese will never get to see him (or Bumblebee) in the new colors. >:oP

What? G2 Sideswipe was black and red. A more accurate comparison is that he adopted his Alternators deco.

I've just ordered him. I wasn't going to, as I've already got the Hasbro version. However after seeing the two together the Takara one puts Hasbro's well and truly in the shade.

I'll give the Hasbro one to my boy, he'll be over the moon.

All needs is a dose of shininess and he'd be near-perfect. ;)

Painted rims for the mother-trucking win! :grin: Having seen Takara's version, I'm not sure I could be happy with Hasbro's.

Smokescreen and Bakudora are processing at BBTS as I type. :DANCE:

Agreed. But these pics were enough to convince me to cancel my Hasbro version and go with the Takara one. He could use a bit more detail on the chest too, but otherwise he's vastly better.

The unpainted chest headlights really bug me but the autobot symbol and the pained rims are nice additions.

Not much they could have done about those given how the CG model looks and, unlike the car mode headlights, they aren't separate pieces from the chestplate.
