Seibertron's Japan correspondent, Matt in Japan, has just purchased Takara's Transformers LG-30 Weirdwolf and took many pictures to show us what Takara has to offer for their version. You can compare with the Hasbro version by looking at our gallery, and Matt adds comparison images to the original G1 toy. We also get a very good look at his head, which is the main difference between this toy and the Hasbro version. This toy was priced for ¥4,000 ($39.44) locally.

Hm. So it unfortunately doesn't fix the one problem the toy has (all the face details being obscured by the big blotch of red)

My thoughts exactly. What I dislike the most about Hasbro's is how the only paint on his face was a blotch of red. But its the same thing here. So it goes back to simply which shape you like better, and I preffer Hasbro's. It's a really nice homage and improvement to the G1 toy which was attempting a more rounded head.

True.
Plus, like Skullcruncher, I mostly want him for his beast mode - so it's not too bad for me.

It kinda looks to me like the visor is an ever-so-slightly darker shade of red than that of the face, but the lighting in these pics sadly does the face no favors, so it's not that easy to see in this case.

The visor is red and the face is orange, kind of hard to tell in the photo though.

Usually I don't care much for the pricier Takara Versions of the toys... the paint details are nice but not worth it for me usually. At times it's a lack of patience as they're released after hasbro's.

However I'd have liked that all the titan figures had a paint splotch on their faces, seems deluxes and voyagers don't get that treatment from hasbro whereas takara does. Though I keep them displayed in robot mode with heads attached, when playing with them and see the little paintless faces I begin thinking it's time to start waiting for takara.

Actually, it really isn't. Takara's version has a light, almost pinkish-orange face, with a terracotta-ish visor. Check out my pic that I uploaded at TFW2005 (sorry, but until Seibrtron fixes it's picture upload limits, even cropped, tiny mobile phone pics can't be uploaded here) :

Its not that there is a problem that needs fixing, its just a different way fo doing things (just like Hasbro and Takara are doing things differently with their decos in this line, nothing inferior, just different). If you want to post pics, just upload it to an mage hosting site (like photobucket) and copy paste a direct image link. We can then see what you are talking about. You can use that method for both site too and it's not hard to employ :)

Thanks, but I disagree. On mobile, it IS a hassle, as copying and pasting URLs between typing img codes causes all manner of problems. Thus, I will continue to post images at TFW2005 for the time being, thanks.

All YOU have to do is simply click on the link I have posted, go to TFW2005 and see it there. Easy.

Let's hope Seibertron can update this stance on photo uploads. I understand that there are challenges, such as bandwidth (especially during conventions, etc), but in this day and age, and especially as competing sites already offer generous upload limits, then makig the site easier to post pics should be strongly considered. It's the main reason why i don't submit pics at seibertron and why i usually go to TFW2005 instead (even though I have complained there numerous times about their site, too). For me, with regards to posting pics, the others sites are all more preferable.

Don't some of you still think that AoE Scorn would make a great Takara Legends Beast Wars Megatron?

I see where you are coming from, but I think it would look fine if it was retooled more into a T-rex to at least make THAT more accurate. Heck, they could just leave the back fins off, and retool the head and dino arms. The overall proportions also remind me a lot of this guy:

It was mostly kibble that gave him extra bulk in both old and newer versions.

Use Imgur. They have a mobile app that's easy to upload to, and they offer pre-formatted embed codes in various flavors (tags included) that you can copy and paste. Or you can upload from your phone to Imgur and write the post on a computer. Lots of options.

Is there a reason why you can't upload images directly through our forums? We don't have any bandwidth restrictions. I would prefer to have you guys upload the images directly here. If there are issues with uploading images, just let me know and I'll look into a solution for it. Thanks!
