    I have the Takara one but I was thinking of picking up the Hasbro one.

    I heard the Hasbro was alterered for those good old safety laws. My questions is: what are the differences? (Other than the color of course)

    Anyone have both?

    These threads concerning the differences between MPSS and HasSS are becoming a bit redundant I think.

    Go check out the feedback forum.

    Colors, packaging, paint application, sticker sheet (as in the Japanese version has a sticker sheet and the US version does not) and slightly shorter, rounded off "pointy bits" on the vertical stabilizers, and slight rounding off of the leading edges of the horizontal stabilizers, the difference in the molds is so slight you don't notice it unless you are looking for it.

    The dicast content on both of them are the same.

    Ebay:
    I don't have him yet, but he's probably the coolest thing Screamer's ever been. He's a lot cheaper than the Takara version, $50 US. But you can only get him at your local Wal-Mart. I saw a few there too.

    I've gotta hit the cash to get this guy, he's too awesome. Trust me, from the looks of him... he's worth every penny.
