are you going to buy the takara prime or the hasbro prime?(not counting the minicrons $7.99or so)
Hasbro when I can, Takara when there's no other choice.
Hasbro because they don't suck.
This is one of the rare cases where Hasbro is better than Takara IMHO.
I don't really have any interest in the Takara Prime line. Not with these mini-cons and not in the direction they are going with with the whole "lets make even less paint apps then Hasbro and put stickers instead" huh?
Also those added ports for the minicons... ugh... way to ruin smooth lines of the alt mode or make clunky ugly ports all over the place... I mean what the hell?
I'm not saying I wouldn't get them if at some point one looks really interesting to me or maybe has something better going on then the Hasbro version or something but for the most part I don't really have an interest in the Takara version for now.
I am really glad Hasbro didn't go that route.... (Mini-cons, Stickers, Horrible ports and nubs sticking all over the place)
Already got the Hasbro TFP Prime figure.
I'm a minicon collector so buying the Takara line is something I'm doing by default, and will continue due to the recent pics of the individual microns showing that the molds seeing individual releases will be "redecos" rather than straight re-releases.
I am buying the Hasbro Cyberverse toys (barring any releases exclusive to Japan, which are bound to pop up sooner or later), certain releases that catch my eye (Wheeljack), appear to be US-only releases (Hot Shot?) or are army builder candidates (hello Vehicons!).
A little of both
Hasbro, but I will pick up Takara Vehicons if I can.
'minicrons'? Dude, choose one or the other; Microns or Minicons.
Hasbro. Cheaper, paint apps instead of dumb stickers, and no hideous ports.
Hasbro figures were better than Takara with Animated, better than Takara with a few of Generations/United, and they are way better than Takara with Prime.
got takara for the leaders (megs and prime)
and got a takara FE bulkhead (fucking awesome btw)
and ordered the terrorcon cliffjumper and takara skywarp...
the rest will probably be hasbro ..
since i have G1 pink arcee and taxi bee from the SDCC 2011 set.
just need rachet since i already acquired wheeljack...
Where's the "No" option?
Put some Takara versions on pre-order just incase Hasbro doesnt release them (hope to be able to cancel them). With this line, unless it is something that there is no confirmation of us getting by the time of its takara release, I am sticking with hasbro. Stickers and gimmick ports are a no-go.
Only Takara figures I have thus far are Skywarp, Terrorcon Cliffjumper (preorder), 1st Vehicon (preorder), and the new ones that they posted. At $8 a pop I am skipping the Microns. Don't need all kinds of little guys.
