    Hasbro wins this round by a long stretch, imo,



    It does.

    wow not even stickers for the legs, and the fact they didnt make any for the back of the vehicle is kind of a bummer, hasbro version for me, dont really care about micron as the blade to me is too big.

    Why does the Takara version have an extra hose and vents?

    Disappointing indeed. The eventual reprolabel set will be more durable and made of a higher quality material. Thanks for the pics though!

    Stickered up, it does look.....a bit better than what I thought it would (the metallic foil for the grill helps) but it's still missing the red in the legs and the chest windows. I think I'll be picking up the Hasbro version anyways and use some of the stickers from AM-04 on that.

    Huh. I complained about the stickers in a previous thread (and I stand by that complaint).... but what I did NOT expect was how much I would like the look of the UNSTICKERED white version. It almost looks like it came from a Botcon customs class, like it's waiting to be customized.

    That.... almost makes me want to get this. Just to do an alternately-colored Ratchet as a different character.

    Stickers? How tacky. I like my Hasbro version much better.

    Ugh...that minicon...and that horrible brown/grey plastic. Glad I didn't buy, and hope that all the other micronss come on sprues that are the correct/close color.

    Those are micron ports, allowing these microns to attach in vehicle mode.

    Honestly, I'm a big fan of the extra details on him, even if they are indeed just stickers. But these ports do ruin it for me.

    Hasbro absolutely has the better figure here. Takara totally dropped the ball on the Prime figures.

    chest windows are left white, no color on inside of legs, no color on bumper, and the stickers all look like shit.

    Bravo, guys.

    What's with the Takara Prime figures being retooled? First I noticed that Soundwave has new little guns/minicon plugs on his wings. And now Ratchet has new roof/arm attachments goin on.

    Minicon ports.


    Lack of paint is to lower retail price.

    It is not very often that Hasbro wins against Takara when it comes to paint apps but...this is one of those times.
