This guy still looks quite cool. Still wish they had redone the head but still he looks cool.

I wish the Takara version came with those hands and feet.

If the only thing I like on this figure is the hands/feets, it confirms to me just how much I'm happy I preordered the Takara version of this set. That being said, I'm sure a lot of people will be happy with this version and I think it's great Hasbro will release it.

Think I might have to go for the Hasbro version (price) and hope that Reprolabels makes a decent sticker face for Computron lol

Price wise, I think the Takara version of this set might not be too expensive. I know that In Canada, with the currency exchange rate and shipping, my preorder of the Takara set is less expensive then my Victorion set I bought at my local Toys R us.

I know its risking it, but since the Takara one isnt exclusive, there is a good chance it will be available for near 100$ in winter sales later this year from importers. And on the Japanese front, I can already see a lot of people banging their heads when he turns out cheaper than the Hasbro version at the HLJ sale next year (did you see what they are asking for Legends Magnus?!). What I mean to say is that depending on your patience, price may not be the issue you think it is and I can guarantee that people will be purchasing Takara's Computron for less than the initial price of the Hasbro version, like...

yeah, thats what I did. Hasbro's will locally cost $133 US where I live, with taxes included.
I ordered Takara's from Japan and he came out to $99 US before shipping. Shipping will be around $30 so it comes out to the same cost either way. And they are coming out at the same time too so there is absolutely no reason for me to have to settle for the Hasbro version :DANCE:

:lol: Yeah, here is the emoticon that was unning through my head when I saw the torso and head: :SICK:

Thanks Wolfman, you made me realize something I never saw before. As I was putting together all my aquired Combiners so far in their G1 configurations (seen a few pages ago), I realized how much I hated the cars as legs. I really dont like the look of the car front being flipped upside down and seeing the mess of innards. We can flip it up but its not always great and it can look super off depending on the torso. But its less obvious with Takara's Computron for Lightspeed and I realize why: they made the plastic/paint for the underide of the car uniform. That has never happened so far and it really helps make the leg look lik a nice uniform limb. It looks great ;)^

I wouldn't bet on that, the pre-orders sold out quick everywhere, this seems to be the combiner and everyone knows it, I'd say grab for as low a cost as you're comfortable with, as soon as you can.

:shock: I didn't even notice I did that. I just read the Last Knight thread before responding to that and it carried over. Whoops.

On a side note: If anyone notices this Strafe go up for sale by itself on Ebay or something I'll gladly look into it. I'd like both Strafe's if nothing else

For accuracy: agreeable.

For value, better feet, and price: I wholeheartedly disagree with you. :P

Also I never liked G1 cartoon Comp's colorscheme much. The Hasbro one has better colors and isn't as boring.

I think it's still called Payload, just a recolor - basically there to sweeten the deal ;)

Yep, I think I am gonna have to Double Dip on my Computrons, leave the Hasbro torso in the box. and reassign some characters. I just love that Afterburner more, and while I rpefer the takara remold, I like that Nosecone, for some reason. So, we'll be calling him, I dunno, Heatrock. And their Strafe too.
