This is basically my attitude... I picked up a large volume of deluxes just because. I haven't been able to get Takara product for these prices since GO!, so.

Takara's are metallic rather than matte colors, so it really just depends on your preference.

Slug is the most dramatically different, with Slash not far behind. Those primarily give that metallic plastic/paint vibe that one typically got from United toys. Snarl has a bit darker green and some parts molded in black/grey that aren't that way on the Hasbro one (might be wrong on that, don't have in hand yet).

Grimlock is basically the same figure, but with red dinosaur eyes. Strafe is also very close, mostly the same but with some added paint to the Dino heads. Slog adds some metallic silver paint apps.

Scorn is a slightly darker red overall, with some different paint colors/apps here and there. Subtle, but huge improvement and probably the one I'd recommend the most.

The HLJ sale has this model kit for super cheap: http://hlj.com/product/BAN994860/Gun

Gundam Build Fighters is a series released on Youtube, for free, internationally by Bandai. Its purpose is to sell model kits. It worked really well, so they made a follow up season and distributed it the same way, hoping to sell more model kits. It worked again, so it's speculated that an OVA or yet another season will be happening at some point soon.

Enjoyment of it kind of requires either a) being 6-11 years old or b) a fondness of Gundam series or model kits from the past 36 years. It's over the top, aware of its cheesiness, and is totally hype. I can't say I recommend it to someone not already in love with Gundam, but if you don't take yourself or the show too seriously, it can be very fun and worth the watch :)

Sorry for the off-topic-ness, I'll check my staff privilege out now and if anyone wants to chat about this more let's head on over to the appropriate sub-forum.
