Wow... I mean, WOW! That smaller Strongarm blow the regular Warrior out of the water! The bot actually look feminine and is well proportionned, without the stupid unsightly "fist armors". And obviously, as expected from Takara, the paintjob is PERFECT.

So...

I didn't realise this was a whole new mold. It looks pretty good!

I may have to consider this.

Silly question, but do you still have the box, and if so, can you take pictures of it? I want to see how they've translated the name of the armor, plus if Sawtooth got a name change.

Indeed. The Hasbro is in serious need of reprolabels. And if I have to pay the Hasbro price twice because of that, might as well order the Takara.

I actually do! Guess it's a good thing I didn't throw it away yet. I'm not an expert in Japanese, but Sawtooth still has the same name spelled out in Katakana.

Incidentally, I'm pretty sure this is (and possibly going to be) the best Strongarm we get out of any line unless HasTak decide to retool the Warrior or just make this one bigger. I'm going to get the matching Takara Bumblebee and Sideswipe because these are also the only ones that have a good sense of scale as far as I know. They'll work with warrior Prime, Megatronus (so glad I found the faceplate one) and Grimlock I think. I really hop they make more characters in this scale, these are my favorite figures from the whole series outside of warrior Quillfire.

There is always the option to use the 3 step Optimus & the 5 step Megatronus with the Warrior class.

I feel fairly confident in assuming that Sawtooth kept his English name in Japan since he's going to be appearing in the cartoon (as we saw him in the SDCC trailer for the new episodes).

That may explain why Sawtooth is bucking convention, plus we may see the same for Sideswipe should his Mini-Con Windstrike appear as well.

And "Gekiryu" is translated into "Torrent"? Good fit there.

I would, but I prefer posability and, to be honest, I really don't like Megatronus without that battle mask. There's more variety and in my opinion more complex, fun figures with this smaller scale.

On a side note, can anyone see the pictures of Strongarm's box in my last post? On my computer they don't show up on the front page article but I can see them in the discussion forum itself.

TFYuki is at it again, this time with new images of the upcoming Transformers: Adventure Scorponok! Scorponok is a new mold for the Adventure's line, and has some beautifully painted details. Also shown is the packaging, which has an awesome art depiction of the character. Check out the images below, and let us know what you think!

While the look is more like the show, I feel this is kind of like Quillfire where Hasbro's is simply a different take on colours but not inferior. Especially in Scorpion mode where I preffer the Hasbro version

Hasbro on the left, takara on the right

Takara would have been far superior if it didnt ue taht dull grey plastic.

I prefer Hasbro's Scorpion mode but Takara's Robot mode.

So I got the new battlepack Strongarm Friday. When this figure was revealed I was quite happy because the Warrior class did not impress me and I really like the character design. But the deco on the Hasbro version was lackluster so I went Takara. This figure does not disappoint. The transformation is simple and pretty basic but it gets the job done. Both modes look great and are accentuated by the deco. The minicon is also neat and kinda adorable. The armor bits are also a nice extra but I don't find myself using them much.
My only problem with the figure is a lack of thigh swivels, but there's enough scpace with the ball joint that lets you get a little swivel. Recommended if you like the character and/or the design.

I'm not saying this ofthen of the TAV line, but for once, the Hasbro version have the superior deco. Mainly because Starscream is really "surging" and not just boring normal.
