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.

Posted by Alpha Weltall on March 21st, 2013 @ 4:17pm CDT
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

Posted by craggy on March 21st, 2013 @ 5:56pm CDT
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?
Re: New Magazine Scans Reveal Takara Tomy Transformers Go! Figures (1473403)
Posted by Doubledealer93 on March 21st, 2013 @ 6:14pm CDT
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!

These figures, show or not, would make awesome display pieces!

Now give us a highly detailed Ultra Magnus, less neon Predacons, and a show-accurate Smokescreen! And watch out for that yellow light-piping! It needs to be blue!!!!

I could never understand what justifies paying a lot more money for a figure that costs half, or less than half, here in the US all for slightly different colors, or even a better color scheme. 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.

And in that case, it's less "different deco" than it is "Hasbro didn't release it for some reason." :lol:

Hasbro has too many colors, Takara not enough.

Starscream is bizarrely similar to Megatron now.

Hmmmmm....

OK, first things first...Where the heck are the "combiner" bots that were listed, talked about etc??? I was psyched to see what was up with those...Only Tomy Takara import I've ever ordered was Scourge/Nemesis Prime YEARS ago. Nothing has ever stood out so much I wanted to pay more than Hasbro retail...

Second... I am not a fan of the Crayola-formers (wish the Preds had WAY LESS colors for sure) but these look REALLY BLAND... Only one that benefits is Shockwave. Optimus looks cool with the blue, BUT since it's looking like it isn't Optimus anyways I am good with Hasbro's green.

When it's all said and done... I am not importing anything cuz I have a kid to feed and bills to pay, BUT I would really like to see the afore mentioned combiner we were told about.

Blue windows! YAY! Could've sworn we read somewhere a month or so back that Optimus would have a blue sword but keep the green windows. Guess it was wrong. Thank god! :APPLAUSE:

Starscream is such an improvement over the Hasbro version. I'd love a small squadron of those.

I'm holding out for decent pictures of Shockwave, Smokescreen, and will wait to see what they do with the Predacons.

Well, it looks like all my money will be going to Takara this time around. Balance has been restored. Huzzah. Shame really. I enjoyed being able to buy my Transformers figures from local retailers again.

I'm sorry, but red and green don't go together as well has red and Blue. Maybe if we complain enought, we'll get s special edition prime with blue plastic.

Not sure if this has come up before but it seems that Predaking's Japanese name is Dragotron.

I think it says "Museum Masterline Transformers Revenge Megatron Polystone (?) Statue". It also looks like 188,000 yen. Ouch.

Just about every one of these look way better to me than Hasbro's version. If Hasbro would have gotten the same color schemes, i would have tried to get them all....

188,000 yen?! Mother Futcher... :shock:

Why Takara? Why didn't you just go with making a much cheaper DMK kit? Would have bought it in a heartbeat. :BANG_HEAD:
