    I just acquired the Metals version of BW Rampage MISB from Toyhell:thumbs2: . Yes, the website looks dead but the guy will respond eventually:lol

    Now on to the review!

    Beast Mode

    Differences
    - The X is colored
    - Silver paint near the claws, on the shell (which is cracking:mad )
    - Crab teeth are a slightly different color
    - Metals Rampage has DESTRON on his crab shell, Hasbro has Rampage (like you would forget his name:bowdown: )


    Similarities
    - Claws (same color)
    - Crab legs
    - overall shell color
    - Crab face/eyes
    - Antennas

    - Face has silver highlights around his cheeks/ears (not sure what to call them)
    - Basically the Body is red and silver.

    Similarities

    Conclusion

    Surprise! I prefer the Takara version over Hasbro's. The differences are big enough to make up for the price disparity. Hope this helps those searching for the most show accurate BW Toys.

    I can review Silverbolt also if you guys are interested.:2c:  On that toy, I do prefer Hasbro's version

    Oh yes! :drool: 

    The Takara one blows the Hasbro one out of the water IMO. The silver paint apps on the face mark a dramatic difference. So glad I/we persisted with the Metals version dude.

    Thanks again :rock

    Takara's version is more show-accurate, but I prefer the more unified color palette of the Hasbro version (main exception would be preferring the silver details on the face of the Takara version, but a bottle of paint is pretty cheap)

    Metals Rampage has Brown plastic the Hasbro one is almost black on the legs and gun..

    I like Shockract best personally.

    Oh and he has Mini-con posts too - only certain ones fit though like the scooter for example.

    Toyhell sucks butt. The fact that he responded to you just means you got lucky.
