    Think i may stick with Hasbro for this round... they're just not the definitive improvement i had somehow expected.

    I like the darker shades but will stick to Hasbro due to pricing. Too much out there to buy currently and every dollar saves is an extra dollar to buy something else.

    Anyone noticed that Soundwave's blue has been replaced with black? Also that Bulkhead looks really nice! I think I will get that one.

    Bulkhead's shade is probably more show-accurate.

    On a related note, I assume DOTM Wheeljack & Deluxe Soundwave are coming out at the same time as these?

    Just some darker plastic? Are they more... I don't know, matte? Prime doesn't look as shiny I guess is what I'm trying to say.

    That Bulkhead is BEAUTIFUL. Takara versions that are worth getting for once.

    I like the black on Optimus. I'm curious about his weapons. Hasbro gave him very soft plastic. I wonder if Takara went the same route. His gun looks much better in black than that cheap @$$ gray Hasbro gave it:(

    Hasbro's Voyager TFP Optimus Prime gun is black, unless you were referring to the deluxe

    I'm sticking with the Hasbro versions, cheaper and better looking IMO.

    I think they look worse myself, certainly nothing worth paying almost double for.

    I'd be tempted by Bulkhead, but considering the price difference I'll stick with Hasbro.

    I would, however, gladly trade a limb or organ for that entire EZ Collection wave. Especially Skywarp and Archforce.

    Woulda thought they'd at least paint Prime's wheels. Nothing makes a toy look cheaper than unpainted wheels...

    I suspect they're trying to replicate the animation look.

    Aren't Primes wheels silver/chrome? Come on Takara, I expect a little more from you. I may pick up a couple on the cheap like I did with Takara Animated.
