    Does anyone know what the Takara versions of the DOTM figures look like? I'm not sure if there's been any release on them yet, but I'm hoping that some of the Takara figures will have better paint apps than the Hasbro ones, as I'll get those instead.

    Has there been any release on Takara Tomy's DOTM figures?

    Apparently the silver pictures of the new Sideswipe mold were just photoshoped.

    If Takara aren't bothering with that, i doubt they'll bother with much else.

    Yup they are exactly the same. Well, the packages are a bit different i.e. language.

    No differences. Just like RotF, and most of Movie 1, we're probably not going to be seeing much difference until the end of the line, when we start seeing more non-screen molds.

    Generally speaking, outside of a few releases here and there, the TakTomy movie toys are simply US toys with a Japanese text sticker on the box.

    Takara has made some minor modifcations. Voyager Prime comes with a different Mech Tech weapon and better colors and of course the trailer and that is about it. I agree with mx-01 likely when the lines change some modified bots might come out.

    So far, Takara got some toys that might not be available here:

    -DLX Arcee (ROTF Chromia retool w/ MechTech weapon)
    -DLX Air Raid (ROTF Thrust retool w/ MechTech weapon)
    -DLX Vortex (HFTD Tomahawk retool w/ MechTech weapon)
    -Voyager Optimus Prime (DOTM Voyager Optimus Prime retool w/ trailer)

    Also, Takara DLX Crankcase will apparently come with remolded hands. Maybe that version will make it here later down the road.
