Oh wow, that Springer looks fantastic!
But not too sure about Blitzwing here.

Thus, Takara delivers.

Springer is all too perfect. Probably one of the best, if not the best, Transformers ever made. :x

I like how Blitzwing's deco'd. My only gripe against him is that his sword, while shiny, looks rather bland compared to Hasbro's. I'm still going for the Hasbro version, but I still love Takara's more. =P~

Takara's Springer's paintjob evokes a more G1 feeling than Hasbro's IDW coloured Springer. Doesn't look too bad.

Okay so I'm not just color blind and this is not a case of lighting for the pictures...the tan/beige paint on Hasbro's Blitz not the same as Takara's Blitz? :VEHI:

It's Takara: most things are different.

The khaki on Hasbro's is darker, whereas Takara's is much lighter.

I have to admit these look pretty good. I was hoping they wouldn't be that significantly different but I should have known that with these two popular characters that Takara would put out some great paint work.

Does it look to you guys like they tweeked the cheeks on the G1 face? And no, I didn't rhyme on purpose lol. It just looks more like a proper grimace but I'll have to go fetch my Hasbro version off the shelf to compare. And I would assume that they would fix the shoulder tab issue that we've been dealing with stateside. And the springer just looks great, ugghhh I may have to put these on my check list.

Nope, don't need these. Not different enough from the Hasbro versions I already own.

hmm the green on Springer is much more military looking, yellow looks slightly less Skittle-y too, but I think the more neon colours on the Hasbro version looks more like the toy.

Blitzwing's color layout looks the same to me, but I do like how his head isn't so garishly yellow.

Springer's green reminds me of canned green beans. :SICK:

They really don't look that much better. I'm more inclined to get Blitzwing because the paint job is growing on me. However the silver on Springer matches the G1 toy. In the past Takara has been show accurate for the Classics/Generations line but it seems now Hasbro is taking the show accurate lead. Now Springer just looks nasty. This is not even show accurate. Just watch the '86 movie and look at Springer. That paint scheme does not work.

I DEFINITELY like Hasbro's Springer more. Even prefer the contrast in Hasbro's knees with the off-white plastic, breaks up the gray. And yeah, the shade of green is.....not good. If it were accurate to anything (show, comics, something), I'd say ok. But this....ew.

Blitzwing, though, is an improvement. The lighter tan and the gold instead of yellow are very nice. Not enough to pay the premium for (unless they come from the factory without any issues like Hasbro's have, then maaaaaybe), but nice.

Takara, why do you have to do everything better? I want these, but I need to save my money for HyperJapan!

Strange. I feel these Takara versions are the better versions, but I prefer the Hasbro ones. Springer's colours make me think of TMNT.

These aren't nearly as good as the Hasbro versions. Not even close. Well, that's less money spent at least.

Eh...I think I'll take Hasbro's Springer all day long.

I like the paint job for Blitzwing but not Springer.

Springer looks great, except for the gray face paint apps.

The gold head on Blitzwing is the only thing better to me, so it is definitely not worth the takara price. As a side not, I realized putting blitzwings sword on the underbelly of the jet mode, and the gun in the top hole looks much better, unlike the photos here.

Nice to see several others have realized Hasbro's are better, while everyone else is draining their bank account dry.
