It's the ultimate chrome throwdown! Which do you prefer? The Japanese versions with the chrome or the US ones without? Discuss, cite reasons, and enjoy. My vote: Chrome. I just think it makes the figures look that much better. Mirage is the shining (literally) example of this. When I got him, I was surprised by how much detail was chromed and the fact that it was in two colors. It really brings out the details that are left off on the US versions.
