    Can someone please post comparison pics? Thinking of going for them, but not sure which one to aim for.

    I have no comparison pictures, but let me just say I was on the fence about Takara's and grabbed one during the rush when we heard about the cancelation.

    This is one beautiful toy!

    This is one of the few times I think the Hasbro version looks better, although the Takara is by no means bad at all. If I was going to get either, it would be whichever presented itself to me first at a halfway decent price, and I wouldn't regret not getting the other.

    The Hasbro version is more show accurate while the Takara version has shinier paint. It's a win win no matter which one you buy, as long as its the First Edition.

    Hmmm, the Hasbro version is kinda dull. Like CHUG Hound versus Henkei Hound. I like the Takara one because the color is in the plastic and not just paint.
