Answering the community's request, Logan79 has now done comparisons between the two sets of stock images Combiner Wars and Unite Warriors Computron with the G1 toys. He had previously compared them to the animation models. This helps us see what probably inspired the designers for particular colour choices in the Hasbro version. For instance, the unbroken white cockpit of Hasbro's Lightsteed in vehicle mode is far more similar to the original Lightspeed toy than the animation model. The toy photos come from the always accessible Seibertron galleries of G1 Lightspeed, Afterburner, Scattershot, Nosecone and Strafe. Just to note, while the stock photos were used, the Hasbro Afterburnerbreaker actually shares the same headsculpt as Takara's and this was seen on the Botcon show floor.

Don't know about you guys but if I was getting both (If I would get any of the sets I would get both not just one) I would repurpose the Hasbro Strafe and Nosecone as the obscure Protectobots Skyfeather and Heatrock and the Lightspeed as Red Alert.

omg, Hasbro Strafe having a cockpit where the original had a black Rubsign is the most adorable thing ever

Looks like there is a LOT of room for Takara to take another pass at Victorion and the Rust Renegades, the Hasbro toys and the IDW art color layouts really don't match at all.

Looks like it will become common with characters based around new toys (as opposed to those based on classic characters).
First, Hasbro designs the character.
Second, IDW stylizes the character for the art.
Finally, we all talk about how Hasbro "screwed up" the "original" design. :roll:

The same thing happened with Windblade.

WIsh you hadn't have said that...

I was actually looking at CW Light Speed and thinking Red Alert. And as excited as I am for the Blast Off basemold, I do like CW Strafe better, It's the above mount gull wings and the cockpit.

And as much as I think the Unite Nosecone is a MUCH better figure I honestly feel like the Brawl Robot mode better captures Nosecone.

I'll do you one better though, CW Strafe, CW Nosecone as Heatrock and Sky feather, plus ROok (orphaned by Groove), and CW Mirage as the members of Big Rescue Force.

I also don't like all the deep red on Afterburner. I really don't like the Deep red on any of them, although points do get earned for the unified paint scheme. I'm not sure I like how patchwork CW Burner is, but I prefer his colors.

Dammit... looks like I am double dipping.

Still confused on this one... Don't feel like getting both.. Prefer the Harsbro UW colors, and general modern Computron look.. however the individual bots (esp. Strafe, light speed and nosecone) look exceptional from Takara. Ideally I'd have to get the Takara version, then get the Perfect Effect kit to swap the head and chest and add feet and hands. then I'd need stickers from reprolabels to be get it halfway right. Is it worth the effort?...I dunno

I wish Hasbro would've went through with upscaling the Prime Terrorcons to deluxe size. At least we would've had AN Abominus to go with Computron.

We'll get a proper Abominus at some point. And the rest of the animal based Combiners. I'm fairly certain we'll see all of them based on what Hasbro has said to me in interviews over the past couple of years, and with them hearing all of the fan comments about those combiners, Hasbro asking if we wanted to see the animal combiners after Titans Return at BotCon, and so on.

If they can reverse engineer Chromedome out of the Dead End/Prowl mold, than I'm confident we can get Terrorcons, Predacons, and Seacons out of guys like Skullcruncher, Weirdwolf, Mindwipe, Doublecross, etc.

Victorion really doesn't match any of the drawings, whether IDW or even the poster that comes with her.
Some differences between her and the poster: red versus grey hands, a lot more green, the center of the torso is red not black. odd that Hasbro's artist could match the figure to their own artwork.
