Is it just me or does the Hasbro version look better than the Takara Ironhide?

I think they just put some jeans on Ironhide and called it a day. I christen this version "Levi's Ironhide."

Ironhide looks identical to the Hasbro version I got recently.

I would like some clarification as to what the hell the differences are from Jetwing to Ultimate - people keep saying that Ultimate has the trailer, (I have one on preorder at BBTS, whether I'll keep the preorder on when it starts to ship, I dunno, I haven't made up my mind yet)

This Jetwing Prime in alt mode looks more and more like the trailer/back section/whatever it is, is 'mid-transformation' of the truck-trailer into this kind of 'not quite whats in DOTM, but it'll do" re-use of the Leader Prime mold.

Now, if we just knew what on earth this 'Ultra Prime' for $200 is from Takara, we could make a 'best choice' out of the 3....

I think the Ironhide should be the same as Hasbro's one. I would guess is these pictures are photoshopped and perhaps have lighten the values too much causing the picture to look a little to light.

'Ultimate' Ironhide is still wearing jeans.

Jetwing Pirme and Ultimate Prime are completely different figures. Ultimate Optimus' wings can turn into a trailer, like it does in the movie, but looks hideously non-screen-accurate, furthermore, the actually Prime toy is a completely new mold.

Jetwing Prime is a retool of Buster Prime with a new stomach and slight remolding to the back to allow for a tighter fit to the wings as well as Mechtech-ports on his arms. The wings can't transform into a trailer but look pretty well perfectly screen accurate.

If Takara gives JW Prime the Buster paint/chrome, I'll definitely pick him up. I like the set but not the bland gray plastic.

Wow. I already have Leader Ironhide and like him much better than what I'm seeing here. Also, I will pass on the Prime.

Am I color blind ? I don't see any difference between Hasbro's Leader Ironhide and Takara's Ultimate.
Could someone with sharper eyes point the differences ?

Jetwing OP is unacceptably priced.

Takara Ironhide's legs are waaaay too blue. Hasbro's were gray. Thus the blue jeans remarks.
