Ramhorn? They made Clouder from Ramhorn? So did not see that coming.

Though, have we had a good enough look at Ramhorn's Titan Master head? The way the mold looks here makes its head look almost like it has a beak, like Buster's Suit Mode helmet.

I am so happy Triggerhappy barely looks different to his TR counterpart as that deco was perfect. Instant buy! :D

LG Sharkticon and Brawn: been holding off getting the Hasbro editions because I knew Takara would have nicer colours. Hasbro's Brawn was almost perfect but missing the silver apps on his knees. Not a big deal but I wasn't in a rush. Also TT's got silver rims.
It will be cool to have some extra random heads finally!

LG Kickback: I love the Insecticons on the show, and this figure seems nice, but there's no point in getting only one part of the trio.

LG Triggerhappy: ahh.. wish he weren't a Headmaster......

Nah, easy pass on all these. Had Triggerhappy and couldn't even be bothered to open him from packaging and sold him. The others don't appeal to me or look hugely different to Hasbro versions to be worth importing. Still got Hot Rod and Kup pre-ordered though.

Triggerhappy looks gorgeous- that shade of blue and the crisp white look lovely. I'm not sure I'll be replacing my gifted Hasbro Triggerhappy with him, even with the Targetmaster- he looks nice but not THAT nice. Still, I can't fault anyone who does.

Brawn looks pretty decent. I think I prefer the Hasbro colours but they both look nice.

Kickback looks cool too, and I prefer his colours over the Hasbro version. I wish his wings were fully chromed but you can't win 'em all.

These pics showed up faster than I had expected. :)

Triggerhappy looks mostly the same in terms of color layout and shade, but some paint apps are swapped around, either in placement or color. I'm guessing the "visor" around eyes is yellow, but it's hard to tell from these pics. The red of his optics kind of bleeds into that already small space visually. The real draw is the addition of his Targetmaster partner, so this is a must buy for me!

Brawn is absolutely perfect! Hasbro's is good, but this is GREAT! The brownish/olive green is on point for screen accuracy. All of the paint apps are there, including the silver horizontal stripes on his knees. He looks like he just stepped out of the original cartoon, more than ANY other toy version of Brawn has before. Must buy!

Kickback is interesting. On the surface, he's got much more screen (and toy) accuracy going for him than Hasbro's version. The silver and clear plastic wings look fantastic! His upper arms are now the proper black too. His Decepticon logo is now in the middle of his chest (sternum) instead of his right pectoral. He's even got the red horizontal striping on his shins akin to the G1 toy. Then...they apparently kept going with paint apps, like yellow knee caps (Hasbro had these two) and red stripes on his wrists. Those...aren't accurate to anything, screen nor toy. Odd choice for Takara. Still, the silver/clear wings sell this for me as my definitive "Classics" Kickback. Must buy! The Hasbro ones I have (three in all) will serve as his clones. I've done likewise, using TAV Shrapnel and Bombshell as their G1 selves while the Hasbro releases, each in triplicate, acting as their clone swarms. Yay for army building!

I like that Hasbro and Takara's Brawn are different shades of green. Though it does rather make me want to get a appropriately coloured South American Minibot to match now too.

Triggerhappy having white on his is a little odd mind.

Triggerhappy looks pretty much the same as Hasbro's, so i don't think i'll be getting him. I still have the Hasbro MOMC but i think i'll be opening him and wait for the other two jets from Hasbro (Misfire and Slugslinger). I like Targetmasters a lot, but it looks awkward in jetmode. I think the Targetmaster is too beefy.

Brawn looks awesome, i\ll be getting him, just wish they gave him a gun.

Kickback looks great too, but i would have preferred if they made an Insecticon 3-pack so we could get all of them in the same colourscheme with a few energon cubes and weapons. There really is no point in getting him while the other two are not readily available in the same colourscheme.

The problem is, Hasbro's Insecticons don't match up in terms of their colors either. Each one has different shades of purple and yellow unique to him. I can tell you that the TAV releases of Shrapnel and Bombshell are a bit closer of a match to each other, but still not nearly perfect. Either route you go, and any combination of Hasbro or Takara releases you choose, you're not going to have perfectly color-coordinated Insecticons, unfortunately.

Hasbro's Shrapnel and Kickback aren't uniform with Bombshell.
Takara's Shrapnel and Bombshell aren't uniform with Kickback.

Btw i'm hoping eventually that someone(ebay or some other likeminded site) will be selling TR Tidal Wave singular & loose(seeing as the fig is ONLY avaliable as a box set) that way you can get that fig without also having to get a whole host of other figs that come with it that you might not want

-Most significantly, Triggerhappy has been retooled to have a 5mm peg on his Cockpit (for of course his Targetmaster) where his Decepticon Logo was. Said logo has been moved lower down and has been made purple instead of silver.

-Eyes are red instead of yellow

-Gold and light blue detailing on chest and wings has been replaced by white

-Gold details on feet have been removed

And... that's about it. Triggerhappy doesn't seem to have any more differences, aside from of course the Targetmaster and the Titan Master.

By the way, is it just me or does Repugnus look really bad? Usually Takara's Titan Masters have such great paint detailing, but I'm almost tempted to say this time he's more bland than a Hasbro Titan Master. The head mode is certainly not helping...

Could be the painted prototype nature making it look worse than it actually is. Paint is usually thicker on prototypes than production figures. That said he does look very bland in that yellow...

I can see the thick argument - I'm betting the mouth will be less obscured in the final product - but even then there's just a bit too much yellow. The Hasbro version's head mode was also overly yellow, but it at least had red titan master arms to break that up a little.

That's my plan. It's kind of my eBay M.O.

Exactly so getting a nice uniform set is pretty much impossible. So i guess i'll be using the Fansproject Insecticons with my CHUG's until that does happen. When it does i can always pose my Fansproject Insecticons with my MP's.

The striping pattern of the wings also differs between the Hasbro and Takara versions. The Hasbro version features a thick white stripe down the length of each wing, boarded on the top and bottom by thinner blue lines. The Takara-Tomy version inverts this, having a primarily blue stripe on the wings instead, with thinner white lines boarding the top and bottom.

Also, the detailing on the chest is a bit ambiguous as to the actual color. I don't think it's white like some of the other highlights on the shins and tail fins. It looks either to be silver, as opposed to the bronze/gold used on the Hasbro version, or perhaps a metallic blue. I'm leaning towards silver, though. That would explain how it looks whiter in some shots and blue in others. Silver reflects light in some interesting ways.
