I definitely like Takara's take on Megatron much more than Hasbro's. I hate crappy Megatron decos, something which Hasbro has had too many of.

Motto: "It's not done right if it's not done well."
Weapon: Saber Blade
Metroplex: All that unpainted white plastic. :SICK:

Megatron: G1 colors on a mold that's obviously sculpted to be Miner Megatron. #-o

Starscream: Wrong color layout for that body. >:oP

Sandstorm: Different, but I'm fine with Hasbro's. =;

He's coming in Wave 6 (October 26). We still haven't seen official pics of Wave 5 (September 28) yet. We gotta see Wave 5 before we can see Wave 6. ;)

Correct.

Hasbro retail: stickers, paint, no chrome, one red gun
Hasbro SDCC: stickers, paint, chrome face and thighs, second red gun
TakaraTomy: stickers, more paint in robot mode, less paint in altmode, chrome face, second red gun

Yep, Hasbro's version had the :BOT: symbol in that spot, which Takara tried to hide to put their own in the center.
