TT really knows how to package their wares! Just love those panoramic battle scene in the back of their boxes. In fact, during G1, they also used their own paintings besides those by Mangiat.

That art sure looks nice and it almost looks like there should be another box next to it to show you who computron is firing at.

Once I get my comp up and running I may have to see if there is larger versions out there

Cool we got the UW Computron diagonal box shot. But UW-06 comes out in 4 days, and we still don't have a full frontal (no pun intended) box shot of it, and the usual window box preview...

According to this post on the news sub-forum on TFW, it looks like Yuki may (or may not) be teasing a Renuation (?) repaint of Bruticus.

Obviously I'm optimistic, but wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't happen.

I'm not saying this post means anything but if they we're doing a ruination repaint why would they do a teaser like we saw before? With the standard silhouettes it's obvious which combiner they're doing but for a straight repaint it would be more vague.

A Battle gear (?) ( Battle Gaia) version would be better. That's how I pronounce him in english, 'cause "Battle earth" sounds loopey and girly 8-}

Coming from other forums like Smogon I really miss having a Like button :p

Seriously tho an RiD Ruination would be a nice repaint. It'd surprise me tho since Takara's Unite Warriors line so far has had an impressive streak of having no straight-up redecos - at the very least every figure has a unique head.

Omg the Nosecone leg on UW Computron even looks horrible in the box art. So sad. Hasbro's just is a better choice in my opinion.

That may be the one bummer about this over Hasbro. Individually unite Nosecone is significantly better, but combined he is not as good as Hasbros. But that is pretty much the story across the board, with all of the takara ones looking better individually, but Nosecone is the one case where the combined mode on Hasbro looks better. I think Takara wins this one. :MAXIMAL:

Well, you have to keep the drill attached to the knee, that's just storage, you can attache it to comps' wrist in lieu of a hand - it's what I would do 8-)

Hasbro's also comes with better combiner pieces, those couple extra little figures (forgot their names), AND a better color scheme in my opinion. A better use of money in my opinion. Why spend 150 USD on the Takara version, then spend 30 to 50 MORE dollars for an upgrade set, when I can get it all at once for only 100 USD in a box set with better colors AND more figures? :???:

That't totally your opinion, though if your prices are a bit off as you can get him for $130 shipped, which is what I'm going to do. to me, despite Hasbro having those hands and feet and Scrounge, Takara went so much farther making this a true technobots set. Nosecone and Lightspeed are mere repaints without proper heads on Hasbro, and the Computron torso is just a miscolored Superion torso, which to me sticks out. I like that Takara did differentiate the torso, Scattershot in robot mode, and Nosecone and Lightspeed in both modes. To me, they did it better, and I don't pose my combiners doing some weird A-stances, and I like the HFG, so to me it isn't a deal breaker. Plus, Screamer has the right idea about a drill hand! :MAXIMAL:

Whatever man, I've never had an issue with the hfg's >:oP

I wouldn't mind grabbing hasbro's comps if I found it at hts for 20% off, but if I were going to get any more combiners, it'd easily be TT's version, they went so far above and beyond on it, and even throw in a ton of additional guns.

I too always prefer using the term Gaia than "earth". Thats translating things a bit too far.

Yeah you guys do you, but for me personally, I am gonna save money and get the one I like more. I also think the Hasbro one captures the G1 toy look a lot better, which is the version I like more.
