Been reading about QC issues in TR figs. Skullcruncher is the same with the TL version. Scourge's head in TL is much improve as in tight. Still haven't received Weirdwolf but the canopy cracks?

Fo Sho! But I am dissapointed by their Soundwave. There are still some parts wehre I would have liked to see more paint but is instead kept bare. As with the Hasbro version there are large surfaces of just the blue plastic colour with nothing breaking it up.

Not gonna lie, Headmaster preferences aside... Wolfwire looks better.

Goddamnit! So close to getting the news credit, and yet so far. Oh well.

Anyway, TR Blaster looks amazing. Scale issues or not...I'm tempted. Soundwave looks good too but if I wanted a Leader sized Soundwave I'd just get the MP.

Moonheart (or Pulsewave as I'll call her if I get her) is adorable though.

Really? What for the two of you makes the Hasbro version superior? The paint apps are almost identical. The Hasbro version painted the chest "pipes" white, while the Takara version left them yellow, which creates a more dynamic look for the chest, playing more on the 3-D nature of the medium. The paint job on the tails is slightly different, but neither looks "superior" to the other. The Hasbro version has silver paint on the shins, but the Takara version has better paint apps on the beats mode claws (the Hasbro version using a weird "dry brush" technique). The Hasbro version has more color (blue and white) on the beat mode flanks, but the Takara version keeps it a more cohesive yellow. Finally, the Takara version has better color matching on the yellow plastics. You can see in the Hasbro version that the yellow plastics for the pelvis and around the hinges for the wolf head is noticeably lighter shade.

Looking at them both next to eachother in wolf mode, I really wouldnt be able to tell you off the top of my head which is which:

And thats amazing news since usually you just check which one looks better and you go "well thats the takara one surely", but here they both looks too similar. With difference in paint apps as opposed to a more paint on one. So this is really great and what I always wished from takara and hasbro, for there to be differences rather than one be superior. Like that everyone wins no matter where we are in the world.

EDIT: looking at the robot modes, I think hasbro's has more paint apps due to the coloured shins and silver circles near the beast feet, I would actually go for the hasbro one if both were at the store for the same price.

Ohhhhh snap.

I'm still kicking around the idea of ordering the Reprolabels for the Transtector/Base/Battleship and the Master Sword. A combination of both sets may be in my future!! :shock:
